It’s time do some baking around here. With Squeaker’s birthday being in early December, we try to plan a small party with family and close friends. This year is no exception and while we won’t be hosting; we will be bringing the cupcakes. Now, I’m not sure how or why this got started… but I just can’t seem to buy plain cupcake liners.
So, for example, during Fall; I like to buy the ones with leaves or Halloween themed liners. Around this time of the year, I like to buy the Winter themed cupcake liners and Christmas themed cupcake liners. And while they do get used, I was also thinking of other ways to use them.
I remember using white paper doilies in school to make snowflakes. So that got me to thinking. Why not make cupcake liner snowflakes.
It’s easy, it works on cutting skills (for Squeaker) and it’s not too messy.
In fact, all you need to make these are:
- winter or Christmas themed cupcake liners (I used the Winter Wonderland assorted pack)
I had to help Squeaker with folding the cupcake liner but she did most of the cutting on her own.
I found that flattening the cupcake liner makes it easier to fold.
After flattening that out, fold the cupcake liner in half, then in half again, then in half again. You’ll end up with a small triangle that’s relatively easy to cut. But if it’s too thick, just fold twice.
Once you have your desired size, cut away. Just be careful not to cut the tip of the triangle.
Get as detailed as you’d like! And once you’re done, unfold the triangle to reveal your finished snowflake.
I apologize for the blurry picture. I had a toddler hanging off of my arm.
Do you remember making snowflakes from doilies? Do you think your children will enjoy making these cupcake liner snowflakes?
