Cupcake Room Decor- "Keep Calm and Eat Cupcakes" Poster

If you know me, chances are you know I have an obsession with cupcake themed things. You might also know that my daughter Holly's room is cupcake themed and that I collect anything cupcake for it.

So, when a friend brought home this adorable little "Keep Calm and Eat Cupcakes" card from Scotland for me, I knew exactly what to do with it.

I had this white frame lying around from a value village trip. I paid $1.99 for it according to this post from ages ago.

What was the first step? Picking a background.
I wanted to play up the glitter in the lettering of the "KEEP", so I took the card to Michaels and found scrapbook paper to match.

I got really lucky here- the glitter paper actually matches the colour of the "KEEP" to a tee, and in different light, the glitter reflects all of the colours in the card. Score.

Next, I used tape rings to permanently keep the card shut (I didn't want to risk cutting it crooked since the card came all the way from Scotland). I also cut the glitter paper to the correct size for the picture frame. Finally, I taped the card to the centre of the glitter paper, and the glitter paper to the backing of the picture frame so that it wouldn't move out of place.

I then replaced the frame...

....and voila! I can't even handle how cute this is.

Check out that glitter.

I can't get enough of that glitter.

This is how the sign is set up in Holly's room. I couldn't get a good shot in her actual room because the lighting is extremely bad, but you get the idea.
All that's left to do is fix the small scratch on the bottom corner of the frame.

I'm in love with this adorable and fast DIY.

(p.s. I finally found the link to the exact card I used in this project below)
