I like making things from cupcake cases almost as much as I like making things from corks. Just before Christmas I saw a really lovely snowflake wreath on Pinterest. It sat around in the back of my mind for a while until one afternoon when The Girls were unexpectedly occupied and I was twiddling a cupcake case in my hand, when the idea came back to me.
So, you know how to make paper snowflakes, right? I had to think about it for a minute, but I got there. What’s great about using cupcake cases is that they are already snowflake-shaped, so all you have to do is fold in half, then half again, then in half a third time. And another. Then start cutting a design into your cupcake flake. Repeat with as many cases as you fancy. I mixed it up with a variety of sizes, but kept a colour scheme.
Next I stuck the cupcake cases onto white card and cut around them.
Finally, I stuck those snowflakes onto the wreath shape that I cut out of a cereal box. It’s slightly askew, but I rather like my snowflake wreath. they keep threatening snow in England this month, but we’ve yet to see any, so this may be as close as I get!!
