Cupcake Invasion

It Seems everywhere you look cupcake craze has taken over. Im not immune to the affliction in fact I have long deamed of opening a cupcakery with my girls, the 3 of us side by side up to our elbows in fluffy buttercream. But until that day arrives I will have to settle for sweet sparkely confections made of paper and and bits of ribbon. These were inspired by an article in papercrafts magazine. Below are the instructions to create your own.

Cut a small disposable coffee cup to 2 1/4" with low temp glue attach a foam ball,I used a 3" ball here. Cut a 12 x2 1/4" stip of paper and run through crimper, with sticky strip attach to cup, this will be your cupcake liner. Punch several 3/4" circles out of desired designer series paper. For mine I chose 3 different papers.


Begin attaching your circles with hot glue from the bottom working your way to the top, overlapping slightly.Push brads into paper and foam to create "sprinkles" and attach trim around edge. Paint on glue with paintbrush and sprinkle dazzling diamonds shaking off excess.
Stamp cherry from simple birthday thanks, apply glue and coat with red glitter, let dry and cut out color in the stem with choc. chip marker. Place 2 glue dots to back of cherry and attach a toothpick, insert into top, repeat and enjoy! wouldnt these be adorable place settings?

I love how your cupcakes look. Thanks for taking the time to share how you made them. I think my cubscouts will love making these. I think we will try stapling ours because they can't use glue guns.
