Surprise Cupcakes Tutorial {She Wears Flowers}

I have another talented guest in store for you today.  Tammy from She Wears Flowers is incredibly talented AND sweet!  Just wait and see what she has in store for you today... 

I am so excited I can hardly contain myself! I LOVE Oopsey Daisy and I think Alison is one of the sweetest (and oh-so-talented!) people around this blogging world!

I am so thrilled to be sharing a project here today!
I am Tammy from the blog she wears flowers. I have three little girls so flowers and pink and ruffles are my way of life! I like to say I blog to avoid housework (true), but it didn’t start that way. I was reading a bunch of blogs and realized I did many of the same types of projects. I decided to start my own blog to share my ideas in the same way others shared (and still share!) with me. The best part of blogging is the people you meet—love that the most!

Today I am sharing a tutorial for making these fun little surprise cupcakes. (My husband said they should be called “pupcakes”!) They have lots of little instructions, but are as easy as 1, 2, 3!

It all started as an Easter basket idea. I want to have fun things and fun treats for our baskets, but I am getting tired of the accumulation of junk (toys and sugar!). I saw a toy in a store that sparked this idea and I thought it would be perfect for an Easter basket. You can give a cute gift, it looks sweet, it takes up lots of space so you don’t need a bunch more junk in the basket and once your child takes it apart, it is still usable!
Let’s make it!

Put the stuffed animal in the container, pull the cupcake top around the animal and the container and you’ve got a surprise cupcake!

Just a little FYI…For one of these, I sewed the bias tape to the wrong side of my fabric, but I didn’t want to pick out all of those stitches or waste the fabric, so I just let it go and it worked out fine, too.
(Just in case you find yourself in the same situation!)

The surprise is up to you!
After it gets taken apart, you still have a plant pot or bucket or other container to use in another project. You could even {gasp!} cut up that fabric for another project, too!
Thanks Alison for having me on Oopsey Daisy today!
I hope you will all stop by she wears flowers and see some of my other projects!
