Make a wish and blow out the candle!

Here is the third installment of my "Birthday Bubbles" series...

  • Cardstock: Blue #2 from DieCuts With a View
  • Double-Sided Patterned Paper: The Goods Bubbles by American Crafts
  • Transparency Sheet: 3M
  • Accents: Birthday Soft Spoken embellishments by Me & My Big Ideas, birthday sticker from Lighthearted Collection by Wordsworth
  • Adhesive: mini adhesive dots by Glue Dots
  • Tools: Xyron sticker maker, Fiskars paper crimper
  1. Cut a 5" x 10" rectangle from transparency sheet. Fold in half to form a 5" square, crease at the top.
  2. Cut 1½" x 3" rectangle from solid paper.
  3. Cut a 3" x 3" square and the cupcake top (see template) from patterned paper.
  4. Run all three pieces through Xyron sticker maker, so that the adhesive is on the patterned side of the square and on the orange side of the cupcake top.
  5. Apply birthday sticker to solid side of square. Attach to the center of the inside of the card.
  6. Remove clear plastic from the solid rectangle (not the wax paper backing) and run it through crimper, short end first.
  7. Trim bottom corners from each side of the crimped paper to form "cupcake holder." Start cutting approx. ¼" in from the bottom edge, cutting to top corners.
  8. Attach the cupcake holder, cupcake top, and candle to the front of the card.
Bonus Tip! Use clear mini glue dots to attach the candle instead of the the foam adhesive provided - it'll be less noticeable from the inside of the card.
