Tips and Tricks:
-If you don't have wood bamboo skewers, layer the cupcake liners on top of each other, gluing sides together or use tooth picks, or strip of sturdy card stock or chip board.
-Use vintage greeting card images in place of the Marie Antoinette image.
-Use your childs or family members photos instead.
-Spray paint the liners for holidays. For Halloween use black liners, a vintage image, chipboard wings and black glitter.
-Make a Christmas tree using green, red or pink liners cut to fit, add mini bulbs or glitter dots.
-Make extra large ones using various sizes of liners or coffee filters.
-Transform these into ornaments, cake toppers or garland.
