Quilled Cupcake Toppers


Never in a million years would I have thought that cupcakes and quilling went together. But when I saw the idea for quilled cupcake toppers in Cecelia Louie's book, Pretty Quilled Cards (which I reviewed last week) quilling and cupcakes suddenly seemed perfect for each other.



In Cecelia's book her cupcake toppers have either a pattern for lovely quilled flowers or templates you can copy and print.
 


But I really wanted to make Easter specific cupcakes, so I made my own graphics then quilled around the edges as shown in the book.



I love how they turned out and will definitely be making more for other holidays. I'm already picturing a set of these for 4th of July and Halloween!



These are a great project for a beginner. You only need to do a basic paper curl to make a set of these (unless you make the quilled flower version). Once you get in the groove it goes pretty fast. I made a bunch of paper curls while watching T.V. then glued all the toppers together at the same time.

    1. I used a mug as a template, so I just measured a mug in the cabinet and they are about 3/12 inches.
