Sweet Treats


Made for the wee Memories challenge called Sweet Treats with Ribbon.  I have been puzzling all week over what I could make for this challenge (I REALLY want some May Arts ribbon!), but the only treats I have on hand here are these cupcakes.  Finally today, going through my basket of ribbons, I saw this ribbon/yarn that Vera sent me; it looks like confetti to me.  Does anyone remember Funfetti?  It was a little package of rainbow sprinkles that could be added to a cake mix or mixed in with the frosting.  Our oldest son always wanted a funfetti cake for his birthday.  So anyway, I wound this ribbon around a piece of white cardstock, and then cut of a few pieces to add to the frosting on my cupcakes, along with a little glitter.

Supplies: Hero Arts CL158 Cupcakes, white and aqua cardstock, colored pencils, glitter, distress inks
