Mini Cupcake Treat Holder for TCP Tuesday

Hello everyone! I been MIA the last few days here at the blog, because I dived into digital scrapbooking over the weekend and have finally pulled myself away to catch some air!! I have been fighting the temptation to try it for years thinking scrapbooking should be done by hand. But, there are just so many hours in the day and after realizing I have not scrapped ONE page since my grandson was born - - - 7 MONTHS AGO - - I figured I best get busy attempting it or he would be graduating college before I even got his first birthday pics in the scrapbook!  Anyhoo - back to today's topic......

I was over on the The Cat's Pajamas website being nosey and came across a few things. First thing was a "Tasty Treat Cupcake Holder".  Anyone that knows me at all, knows my favorite food group is cupcakes, so of course I had to open up that link and take a peek to see what it was and how to make it.  Then, I saw that this week's challenge on their blog here, was to create a project that included a cake, candle,  or present image on it. So......of course, I had to make this cute little cupcake holder!

If you look on their website, I pretty much made mine look exactly like their example!  I did not have any of the tools they said to use however, so I had to get creative with what tools I did have, but it worked for me.  And the image is also the same, but it just happened to be perfect for this project and is one of my all time favorites so it just worked out to be a copy, for the most part.  (At least I am admitting it!!)

I think these would be very cute for any type of small treat really, not just mini cupcakes! I am planning on making up a few these for some gifts over the next few weeks for sure!
