Paper cupcake

Materials & Tools
  • Paper trimmer
  • Scissors
  • Craft knife ruler pencil hot-glue gun and glue sticks two coordinating 12×12" sheets of patterned paper
  • Florist’s foam
  • 10-12 straight pins three lollipop sticks ribbon chipboard accents

1.    Using a craft knife, trim the florist’s foam to a 2⁄2×1 ⁄8" cylinder. Cut a 6 ⁄4" circle from patterned paper and fold it in half. Fold the circle in half four times, then unfold it until it is a circle again. There should be 16 creases in the paper.

2. Create an accordion fold around the circle by folding from one crease to another. Open the paper and place the center on the foam cylinder. Press and shape the paper over it. Turn the cylinder right side up and hot-glue the paper pleats evenly around it.

3. Cut ten to twelve 3 /8 × 12" strips of a second patterned paper and wrap them around a pencil to create spiral loops. Insert a straight pin in one side of each loop and stick it into the exposed foam. Don’t worry if some of the foam shows around the edge.
4. Hot-glue two loops of ribbon around the top of the pleated paper, and add a chipboard phrase to the front. Hot-glue the lollipop sticks to the backs of three chipboard accents. Trim the sticks to the desired length and stick them into the foam

If you don’t have a craft knife handy, use a kitchen knife to cut through florist’s foam.
