Super CUTE cupcakes

Look at this! Is this not one of the cutest things you have seen in a while???

Yes those are 1/4 inch strips of paper! 
It is a very small box that could hold a Hershey's Kiss or some tiny trinket.
I think it is ADORABLE if I do say so myself. LOL   It was made from a kit that I bought at Paper Wishes so it is not like I am bragging on myself for coming up with the idea. I just followed the directions. 

I made two more. 
 A swirled chocolate cupcake with a cherry on top :)

 A frilly cupcake with a heart on top.

Don't look too close because I got a lot of messy glue on this one. haha
My heart is not symmetrical but at least it is "in the right place" LOL
(Yes, by the way, I have taken a lot of pain medicine today :)

The $15 kit comes with paper and instructions for 6 cupcake boxes. A quilling tool, glue, curling coach, and mini mold set are also used. I tried to make one without the curling coach and mini mold but ended up with a big ugly mess so I highly recommend them unless you have a bit of experience in quilling :) 
(I know several of you have awesome quilling skills because I have seen your beautiful work)
I did alter some of the details slightly such as making the candle taller.

I am sending the to my niece who collects anything to do with cupcakes. I know she will love them as much as I do.

I need to brush up on my quilled flowers and share those soon as well as a tutorial on how to make a quilled hummingbird using a combing technique.  (which is fairly easy)

Oh my goodness, these are truly adorable!! That's a lot of paper twisting!! :) I love to quill, but lost a lot of my supplies in a move (not that I'm sure how you lose a big ole box like that!!)... This makes me want to go visit my LSS's quilling aisle!! :) Very creative -- Thanks for sharing!! :)
