3D cupcakes - from the new projects cartridge!

Hello my crafty friends! This is Kimberly from My Craft Spot.  I hope you are all having a wonderful summer!  

I just bought the new Cricut Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge, and just had to make the 3D cupcake first!  I hope Provo Craft comes out with a lot more 3D cartridges - it makes it quick and easy to make something spectacular!

Scroll down for a video showing how I made this cupcake box!


I cut the cupcake box at 8.5 inches, though next time I make one of these I will be cutting it a little larger (9.5 inches or bigger) so it will fit a regular sized cupcake.


The inside of the cupcake box has an insert to hold the cupcake in place. How cool is that?!?!  No smashed frosting!


The fun stamped sentiment comes from my Inside & Out Stamp Set  #2.  I also used Pink Bubblegum Crinkle Ribbon.


This trendy bakers twine is called 'strawberry cupcake pink' and is one of 7 new colors I have in stock!


This new twine has 3 yummy colors - dark pink, light pink and white - all twisted together. 

 I altered the cherry a bit so that I could have layers. 

Here is a video showing how to make this fun 3D cupcake:
