How great is it for a paper crafter to have all these incredible supplies to create elegant ensembles to entertain in style! When I first saw David Tutera's brand new collection for Sizzix, my reaction was, 'Be STILL my heart!' The dies looked beautiful whether for a wedding or shower or even a princess party for a little girl who can't choose between all her Disney Princesses. My girl is two and I wanted to give her a little tea party with mini cupcakes and all.
Hi everyone, Mou here today with a tutorial to create this party ensemble.
Let's start by looking at the supplies you'll need for this project.
- Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 3PK - Lantern
- Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 4PK - Table Tent, Floral
- Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 5PK - Cupcake Wrapper & Toppers
- Sizzix Paper - 6" x 12" Cardstock Pad, Make Every Day a Special Day, 48 Sheets
- Sizzix Big Shot Machine Only (White & Gray)
- Sizzix Accessory - Cutting Pads, Standard, 1 Pair (Mint)
- Sizzix Accessory - Extended Magnetic Platform for Wafer-Thin Dies
Other Materials Used:
- Acrylic paints
- Electric candles
- Paint brush
- Tissue paper
Now, let me walk you through the steps.
To diecut the cupcake wrapper pieces, create the following Sizzix Sandwich: on a Sizzix Accessory Magnetic Platform For Wafer-Thin Dies, lay another Sizzix Accessory Standard Cutting Pad. On it, lay out your chosen pieces of the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 5PK - Cupcake Wrapper & Toppers dies blade side up. Place your favorite from the Sizzix Paper - 6" x 12" Cardstock Pad, Make Every Day a Special Day, 48 Sheets on it and cover with the other Standard Cutting Pad. Pass the whole Sizzix Sandwich through the Sizzix Big Shot machine.
To assemble the cupcake wrapper, just slide the end notch to the facing end slit. It's that simple!
Place your cupcake inside the wrapper. Create the topper and put it on a toothpick using tape.
Color the flower and leaf on the Table Tent. Cut a smaller rectangle from the same paper from the Sizzix Paper - 6" x 12" Cardstock Pad, Make Every Day a Special Day, 48 Sheets as you used with the other diecuts.
Pop the flower by gently pushing with your fingers. Cut a small piece of cardstock and write the name on it. I used a pen to handwrite mine, you can use stamps too. You could even add numbers to these table tents.
Assemble the lantern by attaching the tab on one to the next. Color the flower and leaves and pop them with your fingers for dimension.
Cut tissue paper to fit on the frame of the lantern. Attach from inside and attach the last tab to the first to finish building the lantern. Next, I placed electric candles that flicker inside the lantern. One word of caution: DO NOT LEAVE LIT CANDLES INSIDE PAPER LANTERNS UNATTENDED..... EVER!
I loved working on this party ensemble so much! David Tutera's dies made it easy peasy. If you have a summer wedding coming up, picture these beauties on white lacy tablecloths... just let your imagination soar!
