Happy Color

 This post is going to be a bit random. First of all, I need to admit something. Because admitting you have a problem is the first step. hehe

I'm a tad addicted to pretty cupcake liners. 
There. I said it. Can we still be friends? 
Or maybe we are greater friends than ever before because you are addicted, too?
I'm gonna warn you. Make one of these flowers......JUST ONE.....and you will be addicted. Their beauty will take over and you will dream of sitting back at your craft table doing nothing but making cupcake flowers, drinking coffee and eating chocolate. 
I want to cover our whole house in these flowers.
And given enough time I will.
So here's the scoop. They are super easy to make. I found pretty liners for $1.50 to $2.00 at Michaels and followed this tutorial. I already had floral wire so I wrapped it in scraps of brown shipping paper. 
It was a bit of a pain in the end, I will admit but worth it. 
Next time, I'll buy the wrapped wire and focus on just making these beautiful flowers.
These are perfect for Valentine's Day and will be gorgeous through Spring, too!
Just to warn you, I might make more in bolder colors for Summer. Right now I'm obsessed and can't get enough.

Now run along, get some pretty liners and give them a try. Your life won't be complete until you do.
