Happy New Year ! I'm happy to share something fun for my first post of 2012. Back in November Christine showed us these amazing cupcakes. I was inspired by her to create cupcake holders using October Afternoon's Boarding Pass Collection.
Boarding Pass brings to mind the by-gone days of glamourous travelling with steamer trunks and driving gloves. Tongue-in-check, I made my holders in the shape of top hats. My seat might not be at the front of the plane, but there's the comfort of tasty treats in these stylish holders.
Each of the three holders have a different shape and size. That was because I used various circular and oval ephemera cards for the top of my hats. For textural interest I added some buttons, ribbons and tags which came in the Miscellany pack together with the ephemeras.
Hope you like my whimsical project. Travel collections (especially retro styled ones) always seem to bring out my quirkiness.
