Begin by cutting out pattern and then trace and cut out pieces from chosen scrapbook papers.

Once you have cut out your swirls, lie them on your scrapbook paper, as shown on left picture above and then lightly trace their outline on the right side.  Now trim scrapbook paper about 1/8″ to the left of this line.  Glue down this piece of scrapbook paper  to your background paper and then glue down swirls.

Cupcake scrapbook page layout

Cut two 4″ * 6″ matts.   Cut two 1/2″ * 6″ strips (the green poka dot paper) and glue one on each of the frames so that you can see 1/4″ from the front.  Add a strip of ribbon (I used the pink with green poka dots ribbon) or use a 1/2″ strip of paper next to the 1/4″ strip of paper on the frame.  Add some crystals if it fits your fancy 🙂 Tie 2 ribbons around one of the small swirls.  Glue the tail end of each swirl behind each frame as shown on left.  Adhere frames to page leaving enough room to add the strips below.

Cut a 1″ * 12″ strip of scrapbook paper and adhere to the bottom of the page.  Then cut a 1/4″ * 12″ strip of another scrapbook paper and glue on top of the 1″ strip.

Cut two 1 3/4″ * 2 1″2  pieces and trim top corners to make tags.  Add Sweet Memories and Savor the Moments to tags.  Punch holes in tags and the corner of the frame where you can tie them on.  Adhere frames to page and add some crystals next to black swirls.

Now if you do not have pictures for these pages, grab your kids or a friend, have fun making some real cupcakes and take pictures that you can feature on your completed cupcake scrapbook layout.
