DIY IDEAS - FOIL BAKING CUPS

I got a little crafty today and put together a few ideas of how to use mini foil baking cups for party decor and packaging. None of these projects require special skills or a lot of time or money. Hope you get a little inspired.






A really simple way to make shiny, shimmery garlands is to flatten the baking cups, fold them in half and   attach them to some string with paper glue. If this is too shiny for you, use some regular baking cups and just a few foil ones to add some sparkly highlights to your garlands.








I wanted to make a photobooth or desert backdrop, but only had the mini cups, so I just made this little mock-up. Use large or medium sized baking cups for the full-size version - otherwise it may take you a loooong time to finish a large backdrop.

To put this together, you need baking cups (straightened out and cut in half), large paper sheets as the backdrop base and paper glue. Just stick the half round cups on layer by layer starting from the bottom row. In the end cut off the overlapping cups on both sides of the backdrop and you're done. This mock-up version took me about 25 minutes, so I reckon a large version with bigger baking cups could take around 2 hours.








For some shiny pink and gold packages, find some golden gift wrapping paper, a few sequins, some washi tape in the matching colors, string and whatever else you've got lying around. Then just get creative. Add sparkly sequins to a ready wrapped gift and add a paper pin wheel or some candy cups in different sizes. Squish the centers of baking cups to make mini flowers, thread them onto some string using a large sewing needle and decorate the package with it. Make little prize ribbons with two half opened baking cups - one cut slightly smaller, attach a little round piece of paper to the middle and write a small message on it.






Do you have other fun ideas on how to use baking cups? Let us know and perhaps link up some post of yours in the comment section. We'd love to see your projects!

  16. Dear Michaela and Lotta,
    My name is Elena and I am curating a collection of unique gift wrap ideas for Looksisquare(dot)com. I don’t know if you’re familiar with Looksi but it’s a lot like CraftGawker: they display a thumbnail image from your blog along with a short description and a link back to your original project. Typically you would submit your own images (like you do on CraftGawker) but they also have curators (such as myself) who do theme based round ups. I think this baking cup wrapping idea would be perfect for my collection which will be published this Friday. Please let me know if you *don’t* want it included so I can remove it.
    Thanks!
    Elena
