The cupcake is made with a piece of a box....I simply peeled off a layer of cardboard to reveal the corrugation underneath. The 'icing' is made with gift basket stuffing...I globbed some glue on a paper square and then scrunched a bunch on it before I placed a paper weight on top of it. When it was dry, I trimmed the edges and fluffed it up a bit. The sentiment is from an old Close To My Heart set, "Cupcake Sprinkles". Lots of distressing, sewing, and textiles on this one...to keep the shabbiness factor up. :)
