Inspired By Pinterest - Paper Cupcake Liner Decoration

It's almost birthday time again for us!  I'm not sure how I feel about my 'baby' turning 5 - I'll get back to you in a few weeks!
 Luckily I have my handy, creative sidekick (Pinterest) to bail me out when I draw a blank for party and decorating ideas.  (Especially when the almost-5-year-old doesn't want a "theme" for his party!?!?)
I made this 5, using colorful paper cupcake liners!

The idea came from this pin, originally from Beth at Beth Kruse Custom Creations.


I simply cut the 5 from cardboard and painted it white.

I put two of the liner papers together back-to-back (turn one inside out) and used a chop stick to form them.  Then I glued them to the board.

The whole project took less than 20 minutes and I used fewer than 100 liners, so it was very inexpensive.

Cute and simple! I plan to hang it eventually, but he loves his 5 and carries it around with him everywhere!

Thank you Beth, for the inspiration! Please grab a button!
