Magical Monday - Think Love


Aloha and Welcome to another Magical Monday at There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes! Today's image is a super adorable giraffe who's thinking of love! I got to set the challenge today and I want to see you use this image on a box, bag, or container to hold TREATS! With Valentine's Day just around the corner I thought some new ideas for this sweet holiday were in order.

For my creation, I wanted to do something totally different and I wanted to do something with a CUPCAKE (in honor of Nina's Paper Cupcakes store and her new images!), I found this cupcake template on line. It's by Kelleigh Ratzlaff and can purchased at the The DigiChick webstore (find it here). I attached my giraffe to a toothpick and stuck that through the "cherry". Although you can't see it in the photo, the back of the image is a mirror image of the front, so matter which side you look at it from, you see the super cute image! To attach the thought bubble, I wrapped some wire around a lollipop stick and glued it between the layers. I think everything else should be self-explanatory, but if you have any questions please leave it in a comment! ;)

Here's a close up pic of the image...


Here's a pic of it opened...

I'm also entering this in the Just Us Girls Challenge #17 - Template.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fantastic week!
Aloha,
