If there is a list somewhere of the most fun things in the world, you know that includes both cupcakes and baby mittens, right?
Well, as Joey on Friends says - PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER!!!
A friend is having a little girl soon, so I thought I would make her some little cupcakes with those adorable teeny baby mittens and BABY TIGHTS!! I love baby tights!!
Have any of you wondered why at some point the world decides that girls are no longer allowed to wear ruffly bloomers and tights and wear little tiara's and glittery shoes? Why do we allow that - we should be wearing these things all our lives. You should totally be able to rock up to work in pink glittery Mary Jane's and a tiara and not have someone think you've escaped from somewhere.
The front cupcake is the baby mittens - the cuff part is what you're seeing on top.
For the tights I just rolled three pairs together and they really look like frosting!!!
Then I crimped a 2.25" strip of Pirouette Pink and stuck it together around the little goodies with Sticky Strip.
I put the mitten one in my clear paint can and tied the most adorable Winnie the Pooh pacifiers onto the handle with white organdy ribbon.
I tied a piece of that wide Pirouette Pink grosgrain ribbon around the outside.
I guess I forgot to take a picture of the top. I Coluzzled a piece of Pirouette Pink for the top. Then I stamped the little sheep from Dilly Dally and punched it with my 1.75" punch. I colored it with Pirouette Pink and the blender pen and then added glitter.
What a fun and simple baby gift.
