With the increasing popularity of all things cupcake, it’s no surprise that there is a huge variety of cupcake liners on the market. They are inexpensive and fun to collect, and not only work great for their original purpose, but are also fun to use in craft projects. Today Designer Alice Golden will be sharing an easy way to use iCraft adhesive dots and cupcake liners to create a Valentine themed window garland.
To start, gather some cupcake liners in assorted sizes (alternatively, use one size and trim the edges with decorative scissors to create the various layers). Slightly crumple the center of the liner to flatten. Use fishing line as the base of the garland and be sure to leave extra on either end. The garland is double-sided so that it will look good from any direction. Begin by creating a cupcake liner sandwich – place a liner face down and add an iCraft dot in the center. Run fishing line through the middle and top with another liner. The fun part is layering on additional embellishments. Add additional cupcake liners or die cut shapes, along with buttons, ribbon, and glitter. Use iCraft dots between the liners and Zots to attach heavier items.
Die cut shapes from iCraft dots, add glitter, and use in the center of the medallions. Both the positive and negative images can be used. Here the positive die cut is used on a cardstock circle… simply remove the protective liner from the front, add glitter and brush off any excess.
Here is what the negative image looks like applied directly to a liner.
Try different size shapes and a variety of glitters. This one uses a small heart die and clear glitter.
The heart from the center of the die cut above was added to the top of a button and glittered then attached using Zots.
Buttons not only look good, but they help add weight to the garland so that it hangs straight down.
Once you get started with this, you won’t want to stop!
