    Awesome idea, maybe you can reuse muffin containers. I was trying to save a KD DID bug last night reaching for something to put it in and I grabbed a muffin clear container and thought wow this would work great for your idea. Good Carma for saving the bug.

  37. Ellyssa says:

    Amazing!! I think I’ll try the twisted ribbon one, my favorite way a cupcake is frosted is a swirl, I have a question, what did you use for the bottom? Craft Paper? Thx you, these are amazing, and I’m gonna pick up the supplies next time I go shopping!

    • Heidi says:

      Yes, I used scrapbook paper. I folded the paper accordion style. You can also use actual cupcake liners.
      Hope this helps! Glad you like them! :)

  39. Martha T says:

    These are adorable!!

  40. I have an acquaintance I know via the local craft show circuit that has been making these for years and they very similar to yours. Instead of a box, hers is a gift card holder. Very cute. I think I like these better.

  41. Loved these so much, I made one today! I will be trying the felt version when I have some more time. Thanks for the great idea and clear tutorial.

  42. This is a lovely idea. Thank you so much for sharing it, and for doing so in such an easy-to-follow tutorial.
