Last night on our Ustream we worked on the Christmas rosette cupcake. It turned out so cute and what a wonderful way to give or receive a Christmas gift this year. As promised on last nights show here are the measurements to make this fantastic cupcake. Enjoy!
First you need to start by finding the right cup the cup i used i found at Joann's along time ago you really just need to find one similar in measurements for this to work this cup stands 2 3/8 tall by appro. 3 7/8 wide . Next you will need to cut a strip of decorative paper 2 1/4 wide by 12 inches long and another 2 1/4 wide by 6 inches long then you must take your paper and score at every 1/4 until the end. Attach these two papers end to end create a circle and this is what goes around the outside of your cup.
Next you need to take you decorative paper and cut a strip that is 2 inches wide by 12 inches long and another that is 2 in wide by 6 in long score them at 1/4 all the way until the end fold the creases and attach end to end and create your rosette
Next you will need solid card stock but use the same measurements as the one we just did but before you fold your creases you are going to want to border punch one side of the strip any border punch will do then fold your creases and attach your ends together and create your rosette
Next you are going to follow the same directions of the previous two rosettes 1 will be made of solid card stock the other of patterned paper the measurements for these two are the same 1 /12 inches wide by 12 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide by 6 long you are going to create those 2 measurements for each patterned and solid paper
And finally you will take a strip of patterned paper to create the top rosette and its measurements will be 1 inch wide by 12 inches long score it at 1/4 of an inch all the way across attach end to end and create your rosette.
you will also need to do 1 more rosette and it will be attached to the bottom of you rosette tower and that is what hold the top of the cupcake to the bottom and keeps it from sliding around and those measurements are 1 1/2 inches wide by 12 inches long you will also need another strip same width by only 6 inches long attach them end to end once you have scored them at 1/4 of an inch all the way across.
And those my friends are the measurements for you Christmas cupcake if you have any questions please feel free to ask and also there is a video on ustream as well as you tube. Happy crafting my scrappy friends!
