Cute as a Cupcake

So it seems that everything is cute and easy in Pinterest land.  I saw these cute baby item "cupcakes" and checked out the instructions and it seemed sooooo easy.  Just layer the items and roll.  NOT.  I brought the items to work to finish them.  Yeah, no...they basically looked like baby items rolled up.  Not a cupcake like the Pinterest photo showed.  So, I tugged and re-rolled and messed around a little more and finally came up with something that me and my co-workers thought looked like cupcakes.  So add some ribbon around each one, cute handmade tag and put it all together in a cellophane gift bag.

The cupcakes are a receiving blanket, onesie and cap rolled up.  The key is to gradually lower the roll instead of straight across.  I don't know if that makes sense, but if you try it, you'll get it.

Another key...cute packaging and of course expecting parents.  Congratulations Becky and Jeff!

  1. Yeah, some of this stuff on Pinterest isn't so great. I had to unpin a recipe that sucked! Your package looks adorable though. I am sure the parents to be loved it!
