    You can make a dozen pretty easily once you gather the materials. I think this is a great project for a sleepover, birthday party, bored kids, scouts, etc. The materials are not expensive & you get to use some of the great stuff in your stash.

    These are so cute!!! Depending on the price of the silicone cups I just might make these for the retreat ladies in September. At the July retreat I made bags from one fat quarter each and put a silicone iron mat in each one. The iron mats were only 25 cents on a clearance at Hancocks.

    I got the styrofoam & the cupcake pans at Michaels with a coupon so these cost less than $2 each to make. I have seen sturdy foil & cardboard cupcake pans at the cake decorating store. Enjoy!

    If I'm doing them for everyone I like to keep the cost under a dollar but maybe I could make a few and have drawings throughout the retreat. Yeah, that would work. These are adorable. I think Hancocks even has some "cherry" buttons that I could put on top or get some pins with colored heads and stick them in for "sprinkles". I also might add some beany baby beans in the bottom of the cup for stabilizing weight. I'm excited, I can't wait until Monday when I go shopping.

    oooooooooo....that sounds yummy!!

    Are the pincushions your own idea, or did you "borrow" it from someone else? :wink: I just love them!! I'll have to make some for my quilting friend! 8-)

    There are a lot of cupcake pincushions out there. I made up my own version, inspired by those Wilton cupcake liners. I wanted a simple solution. You can add your own touch, trims, buttons, whatever.

    Those are just too cute. I made some similar ones on the cheap. I bought empty (a dime) volative candle holders & mini flower pots at the thrift store.

    That is a wonderful idea. Not sure I can do it. But I would like too try when I get things in order around here and get over my therapy. I enjoy reading all the threads on this board but I have too admit, some things I never have heard of that you all talk about getting and some instructions I don't understand and I am ashamed too ask anyone for fear of someone thinking I must really be dumb or something. I love the cup cake idea. Thanks for sharing it.
