A look inside and a chance to win!

It’s no secret that I love creating with cupcake liners. If you follow my creative endeavors at all, you know that I use these treat cups in all sorts of ways, including the way shown here—I put them on a layout. I love the way the liners fill the space and add some movement to this page.

As seen in the May/June 2012 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine. Copyright Creative Crafts Group. Posted with prior permission from the publisher.


Creating this look is simple. All you have to do is:

1. Spray white cupcake liners with spray ink (or buy ones that are already colored). Note: I used extra large treat cups for this particular project.

2. Remove the centers from the liners, and cut two of the liners down to get three varying sizes.

3. Adhere the liners to you layout by hand stitching around the centers using baker’s twine. Note: I first backed the liners with patterned paper so that it would pop through the centers of the cut liners. 

This page was created for the “Kitchen-Inspired Scrapbooking” article, found in the brand spankin’ new May/June 2012 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine. Visit creatingkeepsakes.com to see more of what this issue has to offer, including free downloads, videos, and other delights!

Love this idea, I met you many years ago in Fort Lauderdale when CK was here. I was a beginner scrapbooker and I just fell in love with your class and how sweet you were and understanding that everyone in the class was at a different level. I thank you for all that you do for us scrapbookers and crafters
