Oh my yes you do...and no or what about it!! Thanks rock my sister! One you think the itty bitty box die in some configuration would work for this as well?

Bless you for blessing us with this fab PDF. Now where oh where do I keep my cupcakes. Paper I can find...its the cupcake that's going to be the tricky part of this equation. Oooo...I know...I'll make a paper one like the ones from Founders Circle a couple years ago. Much better for the figure...right!

Thank you so much for that free tutorial. How do you draw those diagrams??? Honestly, if I had a cupcake like that sitting in front of me, it would be gone before I made the throne, LOL!

Jan - I can't believe it - I have just stumbled across your blog for the very first time. How did it happen that I have not been here before? I've been paper crafting for years, and thought I'd seen all the "old pro's " sites. Thanks for this adorable cupcake throne. I will be turning it into an svg, which I'll send you a link to, in case your readers would be in need of it. So cute! Can't wait to do some more exploring on your blog.
