DIY Cupcake Liners {& a Silhouette Portrait Giveaway!}

Yay!  I am so excited to share these great deals AND A GIVEAWAY for a Silhouette Portrait with you today!

I love my Silhouette machine and many of my blog friends do too.  If you have one, you know why we love them so much.

They can create so many awesome things like vinyl decals, etched glass, custom apparel, scrapbook pages, cards, crafts and more!

Last month, I made some cupcake liners for my “sock cupcakes.”

I had to enlarge the cupcake liner design on my silhouette to make it fit around my socks.

They turned out so cute, that I knew I wanted to make the cupcake liners again.  But this time, I wanted to make them small and for regular, edible cupcakes. Smile

With St. Patrick’s Day this weekend, I decided to buy some green scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby for my cupcakes.

I used the cupcake liner template from my Silhouette Designer Studio, and was able to fit 5 templates on one 12×12 sheet of paper.

Next, you just peel off the cupcake liner and connect the ends to create a cute little cupcake holder.

These are so colorful, adorable, and super easy.  I could see all type of opportunities to make these again using sport team colors, or holiday and  birthday papers, etc.

  2. I would be jump for joy happy to win this giveaway because I really want one but haven’t taken the plunge to buy one. I will use it for scrapbooking, labeling and making cards.


  3. I’d love to enter but don’t use twitter. SOMEONE is going to be very happy to win though! Just wanted to tell you I made those sock cupcakes for my girls Nd they were a huge hit!

  4. This was the first giveaway I ever saw when you first had it. Now I recognized its potential and could really use it for sewing.

  5. My daughter likes to bake. She made apple cupcakes for her sister’s college graduation in elementary education. I think she would have great fun making cupcakes and then decorating the liners with these. Thanks for the give-a-way. Tina

  6. I don’t tweet, but I would love to win. This size would be perfect. Thank you for the opportunity to win! Love your blog.

  7. Like Kim B, I don’t tweet either, but would like to be entered. I have wanted one of these forever! I’m a card maker, so I would use this great machine constantly.

  8. I would love a Silhouette. However, don’t tweet or facebook either. I think that machine could be used for a lot of fun things.

  9. I have been dying to get one of these!! I would love to win and I could finally make all the fun vinyl I have been wanting.
    Thank you for the opportunity!

  10. I would make lots and lots of graduation party stuff…banners, signs! Let the party begin!
    Thanks for the giveaway!!

  11. Not sure if this comment will enter me, but since I don’t tweet, it wouldn’t let me “earn 3 more entries”. Hope leaving the comment works! Would love to win such a great giveaway. Just read your recent post about how sudden, unexpected things affect our lives, and am thinking of you. (Got home yesterday from a hospital stay with my mom.) We have had a number of those experiences lately, and God has certainly used them for good. I pray He will do the same in your situation. God bless you, Traci!

  12. I would create cupcake liners also for my son’s first birthday party next month!! thank you for this awesome opportunity!

  13. I would make lots of fun subway art for my home and for gifts….I tweeted also ;)….always feels weird to say that.

  14. Sadly, I do not “tweet”. I know someone is going to be very excited when they hear that they have won this! Good luck to everyone.

  15. Better question… what DON’T I want to make??? We just moved into a new house, so there’s organizing to do, a playroom to decorate and a new big boy room as well!

  16. This would be such a fun tool to win!! I don’t know where I would start… probably making labels for my spice jars!!

  17. This is so not in my budget right now, but I would love to win one, I can think of so many amazing ideas to use it!

  18. There’s so many things I would love to create with this especially things for my sons birthday party in a few months!

  19. This would be the coolest thing to win and use in my new craft room! I can imagine all kinds of fun things using this…where do I start?? Please make sure my name is picked!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  20. HOw cool is this machine? I’ve read so many wonderful blogs and pinterest shout outs about thi marvel. Would love to try it myself. Can’t even decide what I would do first. :)

  21. I would make t-shirts for my granddaughters. Also, t-shirts for my oldest granddaughters gymnastics team

  22. I want to create everything! But ever since I found out that a Silhouette could cut fabric too, I’ve been dreaming of making our family reunion shirts for 50+ people this summer!

  23. I would love to be entered as well but I don’t tweet. This would open a whole new level to my crafting I could use it pretty much in anything I do (and trust me I have tried a lot)

  24. Would use this to do a scrapbook for my 4th grandchild that will graduate from high school in May. I make one for each child and a duplicate one for their Mom and Dad when they graduate, and covers the time from their birth to graduation. A real labor of love and sweet memories!

  25. I don’t tweet. I scrapbook and make cards and think this would look great in my card room….oh that would be my dining room!

    Thanks for the chance to enter.

  26. If I were to win, I would create labels for my scrapbook/craft space to get it organized, and then I would start working on vinyl home decor stuff since I’m in an apartment and can’t paint. :) Thanks for the chance to win!

  27. Ahhhhh! I want to win this SO bad!!! I’m wanting to really get into making my own stationary and this would help me make some adorable cards!

  29. Who would not wish to win this great giveaway which would enhance many of life’s projects. I am awaiting ‘the urge’ to return to getting photos in albums and this would certainly be a great stimulant if I should be ‘so lucky’. Thank you for sponsoring this giveaway.

  30. I have been wanting a silhouette to use for signs, and cards, and mixed media artwork, and window clings and….. I have a little space in a booth in Coeur d Alene in a little shop and there are so many things I could make myself and not have to purchase…. Fingers Crossed!

  31. I was really bummed because I don’t Tweet (I will never, I think one social media is plenty) and couldn’t unlock the rest of the rafflecopter because of it. I really wish it wasn’t set up that way. Looks like a great product though with so many opportunities for fun crafts.

  32. the first thing I would do is use it to help me redecorate my girls room. I have so many ideas and I have to bug all my friends to cut stuff for me, this would be great!

  33. Your cupcake holders are adorable for St. Pats day. I am interested in making sayings for my craft room walls so if I won the Portrait I would be working with vinyl and learning how to cut it. The Portrait has been on my wish list since it came out. I like that it seems more portable for crops and retreat with its size.

  34. I’d make vinyl words and verses for anything that didn’t move in my house….especially monograms!! Yep, monograms on every square inch of my house!

  35. Pick me pick me! :)
    I think the first thing I would make is labels for my laundry basket dresser.
    Awesome giveaway! Thank you so much
