Just for You Yummy Cupcake
By Susan Cobb
- For the cupcake: Position the template on the back of the brown/pink dotted paper. Trace the entire Yummy large pattern including the fold lines and cut lines. Keep your pencil close to the inside edge. Remove the template then cut around the outer edges and along the inner cut lines all the way to Fold A. Fold then unfold lines A, B, and C. Working clockwise, glue each base tab to the inside of its neighboring base panel, as shown on template.
- Fold each top panel over the other, working clockwise, with the large curve showing. Interlock the panels in the center under the first. The top will be "puffy".
- For the holder: Position the template on the back of the pink and ivory patterned paper. Trace the colored pattern including fold lines A and C and cut lines. Keep your pencil close to inside edge of the template design. Remove the template and cut around the outer edges and along the inner cut lines. Fold and unfold A and C only. Ink the edges. Working clockwise, glue each base tab to the outside of the neighboring base panel.
- For the swirl topper: Trace the design including fold lines on the red glimmer paper. Remove template and cut around the shape. Fold each arm inward interlocking and tucking as you go. Lift the first arm to tuck in the last arms. Zot to the center of the cupcake.
- Cut a small cupcake tag from the pink textured paper and ink the edges. Computer print or write "Just for you" on the center. Punch a hole in the top of the tag and tie to the cupcake with gold thread.
