Cupcake Liner Heart

After making a Faux Patchwork Heart Wreath to hang over the mantel in my living room, I decided the mantel needed a few more Valentine touches.  A ruffled heart made from cupcake liners filled in an empty space on the mantel perfectly.

Making it was easy and in expensive.

Utility Knife
Cupcake Liners:  3 packages of white and 3 packages of pink/yellow/green
(You will only use the pink papers.)
Glue Gun and Glue Sticks

Draw a heart on cardboard using a Sharpie and cut out with a utility knife.

Fold a cupcake liner in half.  Add a drop of glue to the right side and fold in half again.  Add another drop of glue to the right side and fold one more time.  Hold briefly until glue sets, then glue onto cardboard heart.

Glue one row of white papers to the edge, then add a second row of white.  Switch to pink and add two rows.  Fill in the middle with white.

Display!  I am in love with the ruffles that the liners create.  This looks like the top of a very fancy box of chocolates.
