Today is my birthday!
And now I must confess an awful truth: I don't really like cake. I like the look of a cake and I love the look of a cupcake. But I'd much rather simply eat ice cream or a cookie and call it a day. Nevertheless, like I said, I do like the look of cupcakes and there's a certain two-year-old living in my house who can demolish a cupcake in no time at all. So, for my birthday I decided to create a win-win: a crafty project for me. Cupcakes for the little guy to eat! I bought an inexpensive pack of relatively plain supermarket cupcakes and gussied them up with book pages.
Then all that's left is to stack the flower pieces on a toothpick and add the decorative stamens in order to create your finished flowers!
If you need video instructions for these flowers, I did a tutorial back in 2016, which you can find HERE.
It's truly amazing to see what you can do with a few old book pages!
