Super Easy Disney Make Using A Cupcake Case

Hi all,

As part of my last Baker Ross blogger network package I received some lovely lengths of paper strips, which are ideal for card making, weaving, quilling and more. There's a good range of colours, some nice and bright, and others what I'd call dark pastel shades, so a good choice for Spring and summer makes. I decided to do something different and make a Disney badge, using some of the patterned paper strips (contrasting patterns on each side) and 2 mickey mouse cupcake cases. That is literally all you need apart from some scissors, glue, and a little bit of patience. Here's how to make yours.

Instructions:



  • Cut 12 strips of paper 5-6 cm long and fold in half. Put these to one side.
  • Choose 2 cupcake cases. You can go for plain or patterned, but I went for one with a picture in the centre image.
  • Lightly glue on the back of each cupcake cases, then fold in the outer edges, so end up with just the centre edge showing - in a rough circle/hexagon shape. Leave these to dry.
  • On the back of one of the cases arrange the 12 strips of folded paper round the edge in a petal effect. Once you are happy with the spacing glue them down and leave to dry.
  • Finally place the second shaped cupcake case over the top of your glued paper strips. Then you'll have a finished double sided design, and it will also cover up all the gluing you don't want people to see.
Quick, easy, and something everyone can get involved in. I think it's a good bit of upcycling if you have spare cupcake cases lying around as well. They could be used as badges or add some ribbon to make a rosette, great for children's parties. I've not had time to experiment but my other idea was to use them as toppers for some colourful party bunting.

Sometimes the simple makes are the most fun, especially when there's plenty of things you can do with them afterwards. Have you any quick and easy makes to share? I'd love to hear what you've been making or discovered a new use for.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car

3 Ways With Mama Makes Bohemian Border Stamps

Hi Everyone, There's a little bit of a crafty overload here and on social media at the moment, but there are other posts planned and in draft form, so please look out for those, they just take a little bit of time to put together. Meantime I wanted to share the Mama Makes Bohemian Border stamps. I am a member of the design team, but bought these as I really liked the range of different designs - there are 10 in total, and had quite a few ideas of what I could do with them. I thought I'd post the stamps below, and 3 very different makes I came up with using them. 1) A Christmas Card - The Bohemian Border here I used as a Christmas garland, and absolutely love how it looks all coloured and glittered (had to get a little sparkle in there). The other thing I like about this set, is some of the designs are more of a bunting/garland shape, and not just a straight line, so there are handy gaps you can decorate with stick on gems or small embellishments for a finishing touch.
