A Cupcake Favor

Hope you all had a very Happy 4th of July!! I'm still working on my pile of scrap paper and came up with a remake of a favor idea I had previously posted. My original project was for a little purse to hold one of those chocolate nuggets. I thought it might be cute to take that same idea, but make it into a cupcake purse like this:


There's a VERY simple pattern that you can download here. Cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines. Here's a shot of the pieces:


As you can see, I ran the rectangular piece through a crimper so that it looks like a baking cup. I used double stick tape to attach the ribbon handle along the top crease. I also glued the "frosting" to the top flap of the purse. Velcro was used to keep the purse flap closed. I topped the whole thing off with stamp #4010 (Cherries). Here's a view from the side so you can see the candy taped to the bottom:


The pattern that I am providing makes the pink cupcake purse...I played around with the height of the pattern to make the blue and lavender purses. Hope you can give this one a try...it's super fast and easy!!
