Happy Birthday Trinkets

I came up with the birthday gifts to hand out to the ladies at church this year.  You know I couldn't resist cutting something out on the band saw.  I am super excited about how these trinkets turned out.

The cupcake is cut from a 2x4.  I cut the frosting from 1/8" mdf {HomeDepot} with paper modge podged to the front.  I inked all edges with my permanent ink pad and applied a top coat of the modge podge to seal it all up.

I thought it would be cute to use a dumdum sucker as the cherry on top.  I drilled a hole as deep as I possibly could and it happened to be just deep enough.  The sucker fit completely inside, then I tied the curling ribbon on for added festiveness.  

The present is just a smaller version of my Christmas Present.
They turned out super cute.  I also cut these from a 2x4.  I glittered the "ribbon" sash for a little bling.  

I am still debating wrapping a sucker in the curly wire just to make things fair.   

Just for kicks and giggles I made up a pattern for anyone that wants it :0)

Have a great weekend!
