How cute is this? As most people are likely to have at least one cupcake case lurking about (or if you’re anything like me, several million!), it is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to instantly jazz up any gift. Even plain cupcake cases look fun when finished, but if to embellish further you could colour or paint the plain cupcake case first. Foil cases would look dazzling! Don’t save this great idea for just gifts, string them along to hang as a fun garland or stick to a clip or hairband for an instant accessory update! Here’s how…
YOU WILL NEED
2 cupcake cases
a little sticky tape
a short length of ribbon
First, flatten a cupcake case by folding it in half. Then fold into a quarter. Repeat with the second case.
Then, point the two pointed ends towards each other and secure them together with a piece of sticky tape wrapped around.
Wrap the piece of ribbon around to cover the tape and give that finishing touch to the bow. Voila it’s that easy!
Now secure to a gift with a little more sticky tape at the back. Delightful!
