Challenges by AR - AR081811 Masculine Birthday


Happy Thursday,

Welcome to the the third challenge at Challenges by AR. Vicki is our host for this challenge and her theme is Masculine Birthday. I used the Cupcake Basket Template to create a masculine birthday treat.



The cupcake holder was made with Bazzill Ocean CS and Provo Craft patterned paper. I used a piece of gauze on the front with a life preserver brad and stamped images from the WPlus9 Guiding Light stamp set.


The rope is a retired SU product. I used glue dots on the knots to attach the rope to the sides and back of the cupcake holder. The little flag (HB sentiment is SU) finished the nautical theme.


The embellishment on the top was attached to one side only of the holder so that the handles could still be slid open.

Please visit the Challenges by AR blog to see the other challenge members' Masculine Birthday projects. I hope you get a chance to use a template and participate in this week's challenge. You may use any template for your project, but why not use a Creations by AR template? There are two free templates available for you to try. The challenge link will be open for one week and at the end of the challenge one lucky participant will win a template of her/his choice from Creations by AR.

I look forward to seeing your Masculine Birthday projects!

Happy crafting!
