Christmas Sock Cupcakes!


I had saved a bunch of the Spa Socks from Michael's over the summer to make up some Christmas Sock Cupcakes. My plan was to make a bunch for a craft fair we're having at work. But as the craft fair got closer...I realized I didn't have the time to participate (too much going on) so I thought I was going to be stuck with a whole bunch of socks! I made up these 3 sock cupcakes and brought them to work and within minutes had orders for every pair of socks I had...plus more if I can find them!

To make these, I used the cupcake wrapper on the Easter cricut cartridge (3 of them fit on a 12x12 mat). I also used my gypsy to use the Hide Contour feature to remove the little holes in the scallop top of the cupcake wrapper...it allows the wrappers to cut faster and there's less chance of ripping as it tries to cut those little tiny holes. (Tip: do the hide contour on one wrapper and then copy that one for the other two. That way you only have to hide all those holes one time!)

I want to do these for my Christmas gifts for family...I need to start shopping to find the socks. Where did you find them? Yours turned out so cute!
