I've Been SEW Busy...and a Small Giveaway!

Remember when we did the Pin Keeps?
Well, I searched on the internet, Etsy to be specific, and looked around for some Pin Keep patterns. 
I came across many but one pattern stood out. Why? Well, because it was so whimsical!! Isn't that my middle name?!!

I got this pattern from hallornothing on Etsy. I can't share it with you as that would violate copyright law but I can GIVE you one!

My versions are a bit different because I had a little too much fluff in my cake part. Plus, she put hers in a ramekin and I used some little custard cups from the Dollar Tree. The spoon is my idea.  I know....GENIUS!!

I put the red one on a  candle holder that I got from WalMart. Although the pattern says you can use hot glue to adhere the material to the glass, I found that it wouldn't stay. I used E-6000 adhesive and it worked great...even for the spoons. 
If so, just tell me which one in a comment.
That's it...sweet and simple...like these Cupcake Pinkeeps!
Come back next Wednesday, June 29th, and I'll let you know who gets one!
Our OFG Team and our PAFA Team are having some great Promos and Celebrations coming up on those days so I can tell you all about them when you peek in!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
