Baby Shower Cupcake Tower Craft

This project was so much fun and the best part of it all, is that I got to work on with my mom Sharon. Sharon and I first found an inspiration and then give the final product a twist of Doodle Expressions. It turned out super cute and made the mom to be pretty happy! There was a lot that went into this tower. It was our first attempt to a cupcake tower so it was a little time consuming and very experimental but so worth all the obstacles we overcome! Let us know if you're interested in getting one made up for you.
Initially, we wanted to drape the words Welcome and Baby's name on the 2nd and 3rd tower. However, it would properly fit around the construction of the tower so we ended up using the letters as part of our gift wrap for the gift we gave the Mommy. It ended up working out perfect!

This is our Cuddle Bug machine. You can see the cute little scalloped squares we cut out for each letter. In the above photo you can see the almost end result of the letters that we created. We also added a smaller letter to go inside the larger letter giving it a more 3D appearance. It was very effective.
We made our own cupcake tins with our Cricut. We purchase our cartridge at Walmart, but you can buy them at most craft stores as well. They run about $39.99.
We then put together little lolly pop stands using some bug embellishments that we found at again Walmart. We could have made them ourselves, but we were running out of time and they were the perfect finish to our lolly pops. This is our end result. We were very happy to see it turn out so great! Write us a little comment if you will and let us know what you think!We would love to make this creation for your next Shower or Party!
