Cupcakes


Susan Cobb

Get all the major supplies needed to make this project with the Template, Papers & 3 Pearls Bundle or you can order them separately.

Susan's Tip: I used pearls to decorate the cupcakes by adding strings of the pearls along the edges of the swirls, and on the holder. The pearls are on a strand of adhesive that easily conforms to the curves. You can reposition the strands within a few minutes of placement. After that, they stay in position very well and are more difficult to remove.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Position the Yummy design on the template on the back of the blue/hearts/rosebuds paper, then trace the entire large pattern including fold lines and cut lines, with your pencil along the inner edge. Cut around the image and along the inner cut lines all the way to "fold A". Fold then unfold lines A, B, C. Working clockwise, glue each base tab to the inside of its neighboring base panel.
  2. Fold each top panel over the other, working clockwise, with the large curve showing. Interlock the panels in the center and tuck the last panel into the center under the first. Use the cupcake tag design to trace and cut out a white/blue specks tag. Write or computer print "Just for you" on it and ink the edges.
  3. For the holder: Position the template on the back of the white/blue specks/rosebuds paper. Trace the colored pattern of the Yummy design including fold lines A and C and cut lines. Keep pencil close to inside edge. Cut around the outer edges and along the inner cut lines. Fold and unfold A and C only. Ink outer edges. Working clockwise, glue each base tab to the outside of the neighboring base panel. Place the cupcake inside the holder.
  4. For the topper: Trace the flower topper design on the back of your white/blue specks paper. Cut around the shape, then fold each arm inward interlocking or overlapping and tucking as you go. Lift the first arm to tuck in the last arms. Add strands of pearls along the swirls of your cupcake. Cut off one individual pearl and attach at center of the topper, then add a strand of 6 pearls around it. Attach topper to the top of your cupcake with foam tape. Add pearls across the bottom of the cupcake tag. Punch a hole at the top and hang the tag over the topper with floss.
