Red Velvet Cupcake Bliss

My husband and I were invited to a staff barbecue for my new job. We were supposed to bring enough dessert for 6 people. I made - FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN MY LIFE - Red Velvet Cupcakes with cream cheese icing - FROM SCRATCH. Not only that - but ALSO FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN MY LIFE - frosted them!! It was so fun! My little Gracie and I were squealing with delight at how they turned out and SO YUMMY. 

Of course I had to make some cute little holders for them....enter Sweet Tooth Boxes! I didn't use a lid - and I made my own handle. Remember my skunk project? I had a few flower sets leftover and they went perfectly on the edges of the handle. I used CTMH paper - Sweet Leaf - and Sunset. Yummy. I then heat embossed some cupcake stamps - no idea what brand since I got them at Michael's a long time ago. 

I used a MS punch on the stop handle and VOILA!! Perfection!

Everybody made an appropriately big fuss, and loved the cupcakes.
