Recently I was at a little boutique in town. Every display I turned to I wanted to gush over one thing. It was the little lovely banners. Ruffly banners and triangle banners, scalloped banners and lacy banners. They weren’t the main attraction, I don’t think they were even for sale. They were just there to add a little fun to the displays. One banner that caught my eye was a fringe banner made out of tissue paper. I sat down to make my own version of this adorable banner, and came up with a easy doll sized variation.
Yes, quick and easy because there is no cutting involved. It is cute little cupcake liners that make this banner a cinch.
Cupcake liners are available in so many varieties. You could save out a few every time you bake a batch of cupcakes to save up a variety to work with! If you want to buy cupcake liners for crafting, keep an eye out for different brands that are priced lower or ones that come with a variety of colors and designs in one pack.
Let’s take a look at how to make this little banner.
- cupcake wrappers
- embroidery floss
Place a finger in the center of a cupcake wrapper and pull the wrapper down over your finger. The cupcake wrapper will now look like this.
Pinch the pointed end and twist it.
Repeat with 12 or more cupcake wrappers.
With the embroidery floss threaded onto large needle, pierce through the pointed end of the wrapper.
Thread all the wrappers on the string with an inch between each wrapper tip. The wrappers are still a little more full than I want. If you like the full look you can leave it as is.
If not then gently twist and pull down the wrapper.
Now this little banner is ready to drape on a wall for a dolly photo shoot.
Or add a little color and a whole lot of fun to a doll scene!
No, this is not my first cupcake liner banner and I don’t think it’s going to be my last! 🙂
