Lovely Day

Sooo one of the secret projects I worked on a little bit ago was for my friends Nara and Liz (Miss Kika). They just got engaged! Nara did a ton of careful planning to make their special day super duper extra specialtacular. He asked me to turn his engagement ring box into a cupcake. Fun, right?? And he also asked all their friends to contribute small video clips to be shown to Liz as part of the whole thing. It’s super sweet. You can’t miss this.

Check out the most awesome engagement video ever!

Here’s some poorly lit photos of the cupcake I made! There’s stuffing on the top for extra poofiness.

Even if you are not about to propose to somebody, I think that making cozies for your ring boxes is a cool way to use them as display pieces and sweeten up your jewelry or makeup tables! I intend to make more in a few varieties and take more inspiration photos for you guys :). Right now, I am at my parents’ house, stealing ring boxes from my mom, since any rings I buy don’t usually come in a fancy box ๐Ÿ˜›

p.s. OH YEAH! Here is the sketch that Nara sent me as a reference!

    Twinkie, I LOVE this box!! (I’m going to watch the video soon too, but it’s blocked on my work comp—oopsie hehe)! I want to (try) to make a ring box cover too! Could you maybe share some general instructions on how to do it (you don’t have to give out your secret design though!)?? Thanks!

    • Hmm, I’m not sure what advice to offer except to maybe find a pattern for a cupcake plush or amigurumi and fit it to the ring box!
