Coffee Filter + Cupcake Kisses

 This project is for the Gingersnap Creations Spicy Supply Challenge
  • GC86:  Spicy Supply--Coffee Filters
I've been mulling this project over for the last week. Some of the gals have created coffee filter albums, very cute, but I didn't want to copy that. Then there are coffee filter flowers, that's been done a lot. I kept looking at these cone shaped coffee filters and the ones that I got the bottom is sealed. Cupcakes kept coming into my mind, and I thought well, that could look kind of like a cupcake. So, without further ado, I ran the filter through my crimper, ran the tea dye distress ink pad across that to create the cupcake holder, but I thought that might need a little something more. A brown marker to define the lines, umm, maybe to messy, so covered that up with decorative cord and sponged the tea dye ink on that, yea, kind of like that. Cut the cupcake top free hand, sponged the edges, cut slots for the candles, attached to the coffee filter, used my trusty White Liquid Applique for a little bit of frosting, added red stickles for just a little bling.  Stamped and cut out the sentiment, sponged
edges and popped that up. Cut tag, and stamped, sponged the edges, attached the candle with tiny heart brad.
You know the cone coffee filter makes the neatest pocket for the tag and a little bit of spending money or gift card to fit into. I didn't show you the back of mine because I need to make it as pretty as the front before giving it as a gift.
I think I finally came up with a Gott ♥ original.

Supplies: Cone shaped coffee filter, Papers: Stampin Up-Sweet Slumber Specialty Designer Paper, Stamps: Stampendous-Birthday Brackets, Sweet & Sassy-Birthday Wishes, Hampton Art-Happy Birthday, Fiskars-Be Mine, Ink: Ranger Distress Ink-tea dye, Stampin Up-Cherry Cobbler and marker, Fiskars shape cutter template-Cupcakes, Sakura Gelly Roll-Clear Star and Glaze pens, Marvy White Liquid Applique, Suze Weinberg's Pure Glitz-Ruby Slippers, Scor Tape, pop dots.
