Sandra's Butterfly Birthday Blog Hop

Hello Crafters! Wecome to Luv Scraping Together!

Sandra from 365 Days of Cricut is celebrating her birthday this weekend with a Butterfly Birthday Blog Hop.  Happy, Happy Birthday, Sandra!! I am thrilled to be part of the celebration!
If you have arrived from Vivi at Vivi en Papel then you are in the right place. If you just happened along and want to start from the beginning click --HERE.

For our projects we were all asked to create something with a butterfly. I thought about it and decided since this was a birthday celebration that I wanted to make cupcake wrappers and toppers.



These were really easy to put together, especially when your daughter makes the cupcakes!

Here is what is needed:
Cupcakes
Life's A Party Cricut cartridge ~ For the wrapper, sized at approx. 1.5 inches. I used the hide contour feature on my Gyspy so that there would be no cutout.
Paper Dolls for Everyday ~ Butterfly, I used the hide contour feature to create a blackout for this butterfly
Echo Park cardstock ~ A Walk in the Park
Recollections cardstock
Lime Green Stickles
Ranger Distress Ink ~ Tea Dye
Misc. ~ foam tape, Scotch Quick dry glue, tooth picks, white gel pen

Before you go don't forget to leave a comment. Sandra is giving away to wonderful prizes. The first is a $20 gift card from Joann Fabrics.


The second prize is from Scrappy Moms Stamps. The new "Quirky Quotes."

You must leave a comment on every blog in the hop and on Sandra's Facebook page to win.

After you leave a comment head on over to see Bonnie from Pink bon bons. I'm sure she has something fabulous for you.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!
