Sometimes I use them for birthday cards or other types of greeting cards. Sometimes I use them to send a quick note to my Grandmother who is in a nursing home.
One of the things I struggle with is cutting out neat shapes. I obviously didn’t pay enough attention to scissor cutting class in elementary school. I recently received a Fiskars XXXX-Large Circle Lever Punch and it has totally changed the way I am crafting.
No more trying to cut out the perfect circle. This lever punch makes perfect 3.5″ diameter circles every time.
How To Make A Cupcake Card
- 3 different color pieces of heavy card stock
- blank note card with envelope
- Fiskars XXXX-Large Circle Lever Punch
- personal cutting board
- tiny beads for sprinkles
- Cut out two circles from two different color pieces of heavy card stock using the Fiskars XXXX-Large Circle Lever Punch
- Cut out a 2″ x 12″ piece of card stock in the third color.
- Scallop the edges of the two circles so that they look like frosting is dripping down. See picture.
- Fan fold the 2″ x 12″ piece of cardstock.
- Pinch bottom slightly and glue to the card stock. This is the bottom of the cupcake.
- Layer the top two frosting pieces and glue on top of the fan fold piece.
- Attach tiny beads for sprinkles with glue or draw them on with markers if you would rather.
- Decorate the rest of the cupcake card the way you like. You can layer scrapbook paper for background or simply glue it directly on the note card.
- Add whatever sayings you want to the card depending on how you will use it.
