1 piece 3" styrolit ball (I hope it's called the same in English... )
1 strip of patterned paper
1 piece of cardstock
Paper roses in 2 sizes and 2 colors (about 16 pieces of almost 1" (2-2,5cm) and about 45 pieces of ½" (1-1,5cm)
Hot glue gun
Fluid chalk ink pad
2 pieces of 14" (ca 36cm) lace
Ribbon + decorations of your choice
Cut a 2"x12" (5cm x 30,5cm) paper strip of patterned paper. Punch one side with an edger punch. I used Martha Stewart's Doily Lace. Put the strip of paper on your scoring board and score every 1/4 inch (ca 0,5cm).
Fold the paper strip.
Ink the folds and the top of the paper strip.
Glue the ends together. I used Glossy accents.
Gently squeeze the ball down into the paper circle, until it reaches the table.
Then find something round that matches the size of the bottom of the cupcake. It's better if it's a little too big, than a little too small. I used this glass.
Take the glass (or whatever you found) and trace on a piece of cardstock, then cut out, glue around the edges and add some lace around it.
Put glue at the inner edge of the lace. Measure with your cupcake first so you know more exactly where to put the glue.
Put the paper circle on the glue and keep a gentle pressure on for a while until it sticks.
Then use the hot glue gun to glue the ball to the bottom. I also put a little glue at the inside, but not to close to the top.
I glue a not so wide lace just inside the edge.
Then it's time to add the roses. I start with one circle of the bigger ones. Make sure you glue them tight together to avoid the ball to shine through.
After I complete the circle with the larger roses, I move on to the smaller ones. I keep adding them, tightly together, one circle at a time until there's just a little space left on top. Then I add a "cherry" or a bigger rose as in this case. Then decorate with what you like. I used ribbons, a pin, a punched out butterfly, half pearls and stamped a little message that I glued to a little wooden stick. Voilá! =)
