Cupcake liners come in many bright and fun colours. They are inexpensive, easy to work with and are likely available in your pantry. Our cupcake birthday cards are easy and fun to create as well as to give and receive!



Finished card

Time: 10 minutes maximum
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
Cupcake liners
Card stock
Tissue paper
Small poms poms, glitter, small beads
Glue
Scissors

Method
Cut a cupcake liner into quarters, each quarter can be used on a separate card.



Finished card

Prepare the card stock - we used note size cards (half a sheet of paper).
Glue the bottom of a cupcake liner to the card. We found it was easier to glue the sides after attaching the "icing".



Finished card

Cut a strip of tissue paper about 3 cm (1 inch) wide and 12-15 cm (6 inches) long. Glue the tissue paper strip above the liner to resemble icing.



Finished card
Experiment with different colours and shapes of tissue paper. Brown tissue looks like chocolate icing or cut a square and crumple for a different icing texture.

Glue the sides of the cupcake liner down.
Add glitter, beads, pom poms or whatever you would like to decorate your cupcake.



Little sparkles

Complete with a birthday message and you have yourself a wonderful homemade birthday card!
