Better Late Than Never

Ooops! I have been gone much longer than I had anticipated. Life has been busy busy busy with summer finally here! We are on vacation this week and for the first time I didn't bring a project to work on while we are here. Updating the blog will be my project in the evenings while the fam sits around watching movies (I don't sit well without something to keep my fingers busy).

So without further delay, the cupcake tutorial from the ones we made for the girls' party.

These are pretty simple and you could probably figure out how to make them yourself without a tutorial, but what fun would that be?

These cuties can be made for pennies. In fact, you probably have all of the supplies you need in your house already. They are super easy to make and would be so fun to use for a bridal luncheon or shower!

Let's get started...

Here's what you'll need:


:: scrapbooking paper

:: toothpicks

:: crepe paper

:: ribbon

:: hot glue gun

Step One: Trace and cut out dress top from scrap booking paper. Start by drawing a heart, but square off the bottom instead of bringing it to a point.

Step 2: Cut a strip of crepe paper about 4 inches long. Gather and pinch together at the top until it looks like a skirt.

Step Three: Glue the skirt to the bottom of the dress top. Careful because the glue is HOT and the paper is thin!

Step Four: Embellish with a bow or flower and glue the toothpick to the back.

A perfectly adorable twirly skirt cupcake topper! :)
