New Steampunk Party Fun: Wrap Up Your Cupcakes!

We're having so much fun at the Studio using Steampunk for a theme. And if it's party gear you're after today, you can look no further. Already, we have two back-to-back posts focussing on Steampunk party gear with an edge on fresh design.
Ours are the first cupcake sleeves we've found within the same colorways or theme. All you have to do is print, clip, line with a little wax paper (we prefer the brown variety, made  from recycled paper for this particular project, but your choice might be the standard), cut the slot, slip around your choice of cupcake (preferably one still in its baking liner), and tuck the tab into the slot. That simple. Hides a multitude of ordinary cupcake liner styles!
NOTE: For speed's sake, you might try using a pair of decorative edged scissors, cutting just a hair above our geared-up top edges.
Or, Simply follow the highest peaks, ignoring the valleys altogether with your scissors, and leave just a tad of white between our peaks.
Enjoy your party season with our growing selection of party gear for--
Happy Creativity!

This set was not pre-packaged when we found it. In fact, it took several weeks of searching and then trial and error work and processing, along with cleaning up in order to make this set a finished product for your use.
We would never sell anything which you, our guests, had not given us permission to sell, and we ask that that same courtesy be given to us in return.
Otherwise, a theft would occur, or friends part ways. This may not seem all that valuable an item, but it does belong to our Studio, in that it was processed for months before being offered for your use.
Free of charge.
Please be mindful of others' copyrights.
Thank you.

Versailles Laundrette said...

Ann: One can never have too much of a good thing--and that includes Steampunk fun! So it was decided to start a small line of party gear with themes, with this one tops on our list!
Thank you for your lovely, enthusiastic comment, my dear! Your encouragement is, as always, more than welcome here!
You can look for more party stuff upcoming! ;)

lynne said...

Gosh this is beyond clever!!!!

artistamyjo said...

You just keep getting better and better. Soooooooo creative!

Plush Possum Studio said...

SusieJ: Well, not the entire concept, of course LOL, but we thought of it as a fun way to decorate for parties, and Steampunk is really hot right now. Put 2 an 2 together and you get our first cupcake sleeves.
--If you hear of anybody else who may have already posted a set of something similar, please do let us know! What fun that would be, to see how another set of artists has chosen to do the same thing. :)
I love this genre!!!!!
Thanks for the support!

Plush Possum Studio said...

pchickki: I know what you mean!! Us too!!!!! LOL
Thanks for popping by again for a look or a download, and for leaving such an upbeat comment!

Plush Possum Studio said...

Lynne: Thank You! What a nice compliment! But really, it was only a matter of marrying someone else's mass market idea with our printables and Steampunk ideas.
That these were so successful, right from the first, tells us people really do want their party theme to include some Steam!
Now to develop it further........
Thank You again for stopping by! Can hardly wait to find out what you've been up to over at your place!

Plush Possum Studio said...

AmyJo: My dear, you really make me smile. I just love our interaction here.
And for an artist such as yourself to share such affirming feedback means all the more.
For all our Studio affiliates, I Thank You from the bottom of my heArt.

Hi Rose! Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I'm always amazed at the creativity of others...especially since I'm not an artist, just an appreciator! (is that even a real word?)These look very fun and easy to do. Could even make me look clever..Thanks!

Plush Possum Studio said...

Yaya: (love that name, btw) It's nice to have you here! And it was great checking out the scene where you blog. I enjoyed reading your post very much. Wish we could have an outdoor fire here. You're so lucky!
And s'mores! Don't get me started!
If I can be an appreciator of other people's dancing, I guess you can also be an appreciator of others' art. You could say I was born with 3 left feet! :)
--And Thank You for your Follow!

Taluula said...

Oh wow, how wonderful are these. Thank you so much ..... you are a star!

Plush Possum Studio said...

Taluula: Your words of praise go straight to my head. Better watch out--this could cause a serious problem when buying a new hat--or fitting any of my older ones!
Thank You for stopping by!
