Yummy Blanket Cupcakes

It's the first day of summer for my kiddo's, and I'm SO not ready!  They were only in preschool, but still, I liked my few hours to get some things done, and to cuddle with the Baby. :)  Today my Dolly is begging to go outside, but it is not nice out, and so it all begins!

Now, on to the Yummy Blanket Cupcakes!

These are so fun, and so cute!

Start with a receiving blanket for each cupcake.

I made mine, also simple! I took a yard of flannel, squared it up, and then used an overedge on the edges!

I didn't take many pictures, but you get the idea :)

I used about 8-10 coffee filters for each cupcake.
I cut the bottom out of 4-5 and slid those of the cupcake, then slid the other 4-5 on the bottom.
Use a rubberband to hold in place
Cut some cute ribbon to cover the rubber band, hot gluing in place!

To top them:

1. I just rolled the blanket a little crooked so it would swoop up
2. I added a pacifier clip that I made
3. I added a flower headband that I made!

I bought a cake box from the store to place them

Tie closed with a ribbon and give as an adorable baby shower gift!

    Thank you for sharing this on Motivated Monday at BeColorful.

    As for the kiddos being home, I remember that feeling all too well. Then it seemed that by the end of the summer I was kind of relishing our relaxed schedule and was reluctant to conform to the rigors of a schedule again. :0
