Christmas project #17

Cupcake anyone?
guest designer Kerry Lynn
(This may very well be the cutest thing we have ever seen!)
The cupcake stand is made with a vintage embroidery hoop. 
I mounted vellum inside the hoop and then applied a cut circle of the number rubbings, in other words, the rubbings were put on as a group not as individual numbers.  I just cut circle size I wanted from the rubbing sheet and then applied it to the vellum all at once.
 I also mounted underneath {around the interior of the embroidery hoop} metal paper edges so it would poke out with a cute little subtle scallop edging.  To finish off the stand I added 3 wooden spools of thread to the bottom.

I made the "jolly" flag with vintage crepe paper and an old Dennison label (a gypsy all time favorite!). The flag is stuck into the frosting with a key from the Vintage Hardware set.
Is it too late to do some holiday baking?
thanks again, Kerry Lynn for your fabulous inspiration...
