I just received this die the other day and had to try it. I was able to cut both pieces using 1 piece of 8 1/2 x 11 card stock (cut in half to fit die). I made a treat cup holder (would work for a cupcake too) and a napkin ring. I can see both too as accent pieces on a card if sized down and kept flat. Here are photos of what I made.
Purchased cupcakes from our grocery store bakery. They seem a bit smaller than homemade ones so when put in the cupcake cover went all the way to the bottom. Would be difficult to get the cupcake out of the cover. Would like homemade or larger cupcakes would be fine.
I sponged Garden Green Classic Ink on the the treat cup holder and the napkin ring that were made with Very Vanilla Card Stock.
