Roberts Arts & Crafts Design Team Project - Cupcake Banner

Hi Everybody!
I am so super excited to share my first project with you as a Roberts Design Team member!  My oldest daughter's birthday is coming up, and she wanted to have a birthday all about sweets.  Of course cupcakes are at the top of the list, so I decided to make her a birthday banner out of cupcakes!  Well, paper cupcakes that is :)  Here are the details:

Gypsy = used to size all the cupcakes
*Cupcakes cartridge (not available at Roberts, could 
substitute Sweet Treats cartridge) = cupcakes cut in various sizes
*Xyron 500 Create-A-Sticker Machine

*In my Gypsy, I flipped my cupcake base cut.
*I then ran it through my Xyron machine.
*With adhesive side UP, all I had to do is sprinkle my Martha Stewart glitter on it.  The glitter was adhered with no mess, no fuss!

*Then to attach the fiber to hang the banner with, I just put it in between the two layers!

*I decided to use Stickles to add some sparkly dimension to each cupcake!

That's all there is to it!  I probably will cut one more cupcake to add her name to, but I think my daughter will love this banner, and I hope you do to!  I'd love for you to leave a comment letting me know what you think.  Be sure to keep checking back here, and on the Roberts blog for TONS of inspiration.  See ya next time :)
