Hey all,
I'm not a scrapbooker at all, nor do I have an "eye" for paper crafts but when I saw the cute cupcake tote on Nichole Heady's blog, I knew I had to at least try and that it would be a great present for my tween cousins for Christmas.  The vials (originally for beads, she used test/spice tubes with silver screw on caps) hold sprinkles for decorating.  The bag in front (made from waxed paper, I couldn't find the Reynold's glassine bags) hold cupcake liners, tips and bags.  I also plan on printing out instructions on how to use the bags and what the tips do.  I didn't really follow her steps as she used cake mix and I used the cupcake mix so the dimensions aren't the same.  I'm not sure they have cupcake pans so I'll probably buy some of the tin ones to go along with the totes.  I also included frosting and covered the tubs with matching scrapbook paper.

It looks great, Tia! Just like the one in the blog, but better because you added your own touch. I giggled a little b/c I have that same scrapbook paper, I even used some for part of Matt's gifts (on his coupons.. hehehehe). But anyhow, great job! I love it!!! Smiley Turned out fabulous, I wish I had someone to make one for.. besides myself!

Thanks ya'll!  I really appreciate your comments.

Isn't that paper so cute tho?  I love the whole red, pink, green, lime, white combo for Christmas.  I'm gonna try to sneak my white tree out so I can decorate it in those colors.  The mister HATES my white Christmas tree, lol.  I guess I'll have to put it in my craft room.  Ugh, now I want to go to Wal-Mart and get some decorations! 

I went back to find the post for her kinda sorta instructions.  It has some measurements, but not all.  You can view it here

Also, does anyone know where else I can find scrapbooking projects like this?  Like three dimensional holders and packaging.  Like how they make purses and such.  I've searched and searched but I just don't know what to call it.

Yours turned out awesome, good job!

If your after more projects like these you should visit becky roberts blog, inkingidaho.blogspot.com, she has all sorts of cool stuff like this, I got the milk carton container tutorial last year and it's brillant to put little pressies in and looks so cute when you put 4 of them in the box base.
Theres heaps of other projects on her blog and I find them all really easy to follow.
