Wondering what to get that special someone who’s watching/counting their calories? No not jewelry, flowers – how about an everlasting VALENTINE BUTTON CUPCAKE?
That’s right these are Button Cupcakes! and it’s easy – I actually posted a how to on October 16, 2013 – Keepsake Button Cupcakes there’s a step by step how to create these cute cupcakes.
All you have to do is replace the colorful buttons with pinks, purples, reds, heart shape buttons… here are all the materials you’ll need:
for this project I created large and mini cupcakes – all of these products can be found in your favorite craft store: mini and 2 1/2″ styrofoam balls; cupcake liners; quilt pins; and of course BUTTONS!
an assortment of Pink Button Jar Buttons #540001005; Favorite Findings Colors #4; #5; #6; Favorite Findings Colors We Love #404; Favorite Findings Colorful Mini Hearts #1395
add one layer of buttons all away around the ball (don’t worry that you see the styrofoam – you’ll go back) Once your first layer is done now go back and fill in the spaces with smaller buttons and don’t forget to include some mini hearts!
Done – don’t forget to wrap it with some pink satin ribbon!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
