So as some of you have read I am doing a craft class locally at our Thrift Store. The idea of the class is to give people ideas of crafts they can make with stuff from the thrift store. For my first class I wanted to do something for Valentines day. After playing around with a number of different ideas I came up with these:
They look like cupcakes but the top lifts off to reveal a little treat holder. They make both a cute and functional valentine decoration. Can you imagine a layered cake stand with these on it? How fun. (they would be cute for birthdays or a wedding too)
Okay so here is what you need to make these:
1 old t-shirt (a jersey knit one)
An old book
Cupcake liner papers Glue gun
Cupcake wrapper template ( template can be found here I just trimmed off the scalloped top)
Pan, sucker sticks and cupcake toppers are optional
I put the "frosting" piece in my trash can and sprayed it lightly with adhesive spray and then dusted it with glitter.
The final step is to make the cupcake toppers if you wish. I printed out the toppers from here and taped them to the top of a sucker stick. I glued the end of the sucker stick into the middle of my "frosting" pieces.
Happy thrifty crafting everyone.
