What do you get when you combine mini cupcakes with extreme cuteness? This adorable Cupcake Purse! New in the 99 Cent Store, this purse shaped cupcake carrier holds 4 mini cupcakes, making it the perfect gift for any girl who likes sweets, and who doesn't like sweets?
I used patterned papers from the K&Company "Charlotte" paper pad for the cupcake carrier and purse front and back, and cardstock by Recollections for the closure tab and handles. The double sided patterned paper worked really well for this, since you see both sides of the paper when the purse is opened. The flower on the front was from my stash of silk flowers that I have on hand for crafting emergencies like this. :-)

The purse closes around the sides of the carrier, protecting the cupcakes while they are being carried.
