Video: Cupcake Holders + Stamped Tags + Recipe

Hello! I have teamed up with my dear friend Melanie Bauer from Melanie Makes for another special treat. Melanie came up with a scrumptious Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins recipeโ€ฆ and I came up with a simple yet cute packaging for it. Check out my video to see how to use a paper or plastic cup for a fun muffin or cupcake holder.

Here I go again… spoiling our teachers. ๐Ÿ™‚ But this treat could be for just about anyone! The video shows how to take a paper or plastic cut and turn it into a fun cupcake or muffin holder. So easy.

I also share some tips for making quick and colorful tags. For all the tags, I used the rounded rectangle die from the My Favorite Things Luncbox die set. (It is the perfect size and shape.) I then stamped an image with My Favorite Things Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and did some two-color and three-color Copic blending. (Totally inspired by the amazing techniques over in our Copic class.) That first tag is my favorite… there is just something awesome about that pile of books from the MFT Class Act set.

By the way, those gold touches on the books? I did that with the Pilot Gold Marker. This gives nice and thick coverage and is perfect for quick, bold shine.

The adorable raccoon on the next tag is from the MFT Cute Critters set. And by the way, I die cut the little heart window from each tag with the MFT Mason Jar die set. Isn’t he cute?

The last one is the I-am-running-out-of-time-so-let’s-make-this-simple tag. I again used the MFT Class Act stamp set.

On each tag, I wrote the message on the red tag behind the stamped one. This would work with any tag die shape… even a circle.
