Aluminum Baking Cups
Felt Squares (colors of your choice)
Needle and coordinating thread
Charms, ribbon, or buttons for embellishment

Things to do:
1. Lay the baking cup on top of the felt you’ll be using for the cupcake top and trace. Then, cut the aluminum baking cup in two by slicing down the side and around the base. Watch out for sharp edges!

3. Use a running stitch to sew the side seam together.
4. Embellish the cupcake’s top however you like. Add charms or button sprinkles”, or shape strips of puckered ribbon or felt into luscious streams of whipped cream.
5. Use a buttonhole stitch to secure the cupcake’s top to the side. Start at the seam where you sewed the sides together so you’ll have all finishing stitches on the same edge.
6. Stuff until the cupcake holds its shape, and then sew on the bottom.

    1. Sorry for the late response, but the frosting is easy to make. Im so sorry that I didnt include it in the instructions. All you have to do is cut strips of felt, then fold in like a fan or an accordion like this picture here… Once you have the felt all bunched up, use a little needle and thread to sew one end of the bunch together. This should create a loose scrunchy type shape. Make a couple of these in decreasing size and sew on top of each other. Let me know if you need anything else and I will be happy to help you!
