Party in a Box for Craft Us Crazy

It's time for a new challenge at Craft Us Crazy!   The theme for the next two weeks is Cupcake/Celebration.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Limited Runs.

Info from Limited Runs:

When I started creating christmas cards for my friends I didn't realize how addictive it could be and it's slowly been getting larger. We all start somewhere and it's been growing.  Creating Digi's just happened to be a blend of using my drawing and computer graphix together to create "Limited Runs" which is my digital stamp store. I've also started Freebie Fridays and will be doing this for a Limited time too. Each may be posted from 1 day to ??? (Limited Time Offer) May you all enjoy my digi's as much as I love to make them. So if your looking for some YUMMY cupcakes I've got over 70 varieties to choose from with more always in the works.  Don't worry, there are also others available from cute to a little scary - pop by and you'll see what I mean!!!
The prize from Limited Runs is three digi images of the winner's choice! 

While I was contemplating what I wanted to create for the cupcake/celebration challenge, I received a request for a banner, invitations, cupcake decorations, and lollipop covers.  Well, that couldn't be any more perfect!  I used the single candle cupcake from Limited Runs to create my project. 
For the banner, I also used Papertrey Ink and Spellbinder dies, some chipboard letters that I glittered that fabulous blue (from Martha), vintage buttons, Divine Twine, and hand-dyed seam binding ribbon. 
 The cupcake decoration is simply the Limited Runs cupcake with a little banner.
  I used a Papertrey Ink die to create the folded lollipop covers and the invitations. 
 Here you can see how the lollipop fits inside.
  The invite opens the same way with all the info inside.
  The little cupcake stamp is Papertrey.  I still have to make a few lollipop covers and invites, but I'm almost there!  I wanted something cool to package it all in...enter the 1950's ice cream box.  (These are still available online at Papertrove.) 
 Just added a circle tag - I didn't want to cover up much of the box.  Check out Craft Us Crazy for more cupcake/celebrate inspiration!
