May Papertrey Bloghop

It's time for another Papertrey Bloghop.

This month the challenge was to use Felt in our projects.

This is what I came up with

I made the mini cupcake pincushion using Papertrey's Dark Chocolate felt. I cut the base from a cupcake liner and sewed circles that were cut using circle Nestabilities with the blanket stitch. The scalloped topping was cut from Papertrey's Vintage Cream and Felt On The Fly pink felt. I finished it off with a yo yo flower made from some fabric I had in my stash and a Pure Poppy button.

I also made matching packaging to go with it too using PTI's Dark chocolate, Sweet Blush and Bazzil Sprout cardstock. The polka dots were punched from the Sprout cardstock and added to the Sweet Blush pieces. The bottom Sprout pieces were embossed with the Sizzix dots embossing folder. The box was made from the SVG Hey Cupcake Template that I resized to fit the cupcake and was designed by Leigh Ann Baird. She has lots of other great templates that she sells there too so be sure to check them out.
I am also entering this project in this weeks Jugs template Challenge and the Shabby Tea Rooms Polka dot Challenge as well.
I look forward to seeing what everyone else has come up with now. As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great night!

I'd love to gush about the cupcake and the box, but I can't think of anything original to say in addition to what everyone else has already said! But I can say one (OK, two) original thing(s)...you make my felt look so good, and thank you for the 'FeltOnTheFly' mention!

*off to find a cupcake I can eat now...*
