Seize the Cupcake! (Liners!)

Hello! Good grief ... where has my week gone? It is already Thursday and I am just not getting my first post of the week done. Oh well, this is is worth the wait! As you know, I am mainly a papercrafter, but every once in a while, I try my hand at something else. And pinterest is to blame! You see, a while back I saw on pinterest where someone had made a wreath with cupcake liners! Oh my goodness, so cute! And it looked quite easy. About a month ago, my friend, Donna and I were in Tyler at Michaels and we were going up and down the aisles. In the cupcake aisle, we started talking about the wreath we had both "pinned", so we ended up getting all the liners and the green form we needed to make our wreathes. And we finally had a day last week to get together to try our hand at this fun form of wreath making. They came out awesome! Let me show you mine!  Enjoy!


And a close up...

This was one of the easiest projects I have ever tried!  Here is the link to the instructions.  In the instructions, she said that she used small cupcake liners to fill in any holes.  Well, they were not needed for mine, as my liners were pinned in very close to each other.  I didn't really plan on doing it that way, it just how I started and once I started, I just kept doing it that way.  As I know you are wondering, how many cupcake liners I did use, since mine is full ... I think I used about 200.  I know that seems like a lot but I had 3 packages of 75, so if you look at that way, it really isn't so many!  Donna thought this would be great in red, white, or blue or reds and greens for the holidays.  I agree!  The wreath is going to be hung in my craft room, those are my colors!!  What do you think?  Creative and pretty?

I will try to get to my room to create something for you for tomorrow and then Saturday, I will have the cards to show you for the share.

Happy Stamping!
