Washcloth Cupcakes anyone? Yes please!

Today, I went to a baby shower for a friend expecting twin boys. The shower was a lot of fun..but I really enjoyed making her gift!

I made some washcloth cupcakes, her card and a tag for the bag. Her husband also got matching college football onesie’s for the boys 🙂

I found the tutorial for the cupcakes here. I modified it a bit by folding the washclothes in four sections instead of three so they would fit in the box otherwise they were too high. I also used adhesive clear dots to attach the yellow pom poms to the buttons, which were attached to the washclothes for the ‘cherry on top’ look. I wanted to keep it masculine hence the yellow cherries! I didn’t like the look of the top of the box..it was too busy, I couldn’t find a plain white box. So I used some blue cardstock, some stamps from Stampin up and a scallop and Marta Stewart elephant punch to jazz it up a bit. Bakers twine and buttons were also used. Here is the end result:
