I made these cupcakes using baby food jars as the base. I covered the jar with patterned paper, paper is by Canvas Corp, and then I covered the lid with a swirly glittered fabric topping. The topping is made from taking cording and wrapping it with torn strips of fabric, glue it down as you go to hold it in place. I then took a half of a styrofoam ball that fit the lid and wrapped the fabric covered cording around it to resemble swirled frosting. Make sure you glue it to the lid using a really strong glue (I used Canvas Corps Media Glue). Top it off with glitter and sequins. The cherry on top was a find at Hobby Lobby around Christmas and is actually a plastic sugary candy ornament. I bought it knowing I would find a use for it!!

Okay, I found this tutorial on Pinterest the other day on how to make a fabric peony. I knew I had to make it!! It turned out so beautiful, almost life like in my opinion. If you want to make it also the website for the tutorial is creaturecomfortsblog.com. She also shows how to make a poppy flower. You may also find it on Pinterest under crafts. Please take caution and make sure you do have plenty of ventilation and don't inhale the fumes from the melting fabric (like I did and it made me very ill).
