Look at this! Is this not one of the cutest things you have seen in a while???
It is a QUILLED CUPCAKE BOX!
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)
