Join the challenge at MPC! Nautical/Patriotic

It's time for another challenge at Mountain Plains Crafters.  
The theme is Nautical or Patriotic - you decide!  



Our sponsor is May Arts Ribbon and we are giving a sampling of their patriotic and nautical ribbons that they sent our design team.  Brand spanking new ribbons!

Go here to get all the details and link up to the challenge:




As you can see, I chose to go nautical.  I have some lovely papers from Graphic 45, from the By The Sea Collection.  I also used an svg file purchased from SVG Attic, to create the wavy cupcake liners, cutting them with my Cricut Explore.

Don't you just love the cake toppers?  I wrapped some May Arts Ribbon bakers twine around trimmed wooden skewers and cut the anchor and ships steer, also using my Cricut, with G45 paper, then made flags.  There's punched corrugated circles with DoubleClick Skittles in Glitter Bellini on the steer, as well.   In fact, now that I look again, these look like little cupcake boats!  Arrgh, matey.....

(I would love to take credit for the yummy cupcakes but these are courtesy of Mad Hatter Cakes and Cupcake Shop in Jacksonville, AL and are so amazing!)


Here's how I trimmed down this wide ribbon to work with my cupcake wrappers:

- trim a 1/2" x 11" strip
- pull out sections along both edges to give it a frayed look 
- secure ribbon and twine with adhesive dots and/or glue

  I love how it turned out!



Don't forget to link up before July 3rd.  Good luck!

Additional supplies: Tombow adhesive dots and Mono Aqua Glue

I also will be linking up to these challenges:
