I love Jan's Cupcake Throne! I stumbled across her instructions on her blog- which was on Pinterest. Here is the link-
I made one of these for someone special - and of course, put a cupcake in it. It was sooo cute! I had several requests to make more! This time I used Shimmer Sheets for the background on all of them but the blue one. The blue one is Ranger's sandable paper - I embossed it, then sanded it. It is really cool paper! Shimmer sheets are plastic and shiny and can be embossed too! I sanded two of them. On the pink Happy Birthday one - I used Staz On ink. I just rubbed it lightly across the top. I love both of these techniques. Here are a few more pics-You can click on them to make them larger.
This picture shows how shimmery- Shimmer Sheets are! They are fabulous! I only have 2 colors but I will have to get more!!! I have not finished decorating them all since I want to save a couple for future use. I think they are adorable! Thanks, Jan!
