Cupcake Carnival: Jen from Tatertots & Jello

Hi -- I'm Jen from Tatertots & Jello

I'm so excited to be here to celebrate one of my favorite things in the world:

CUPCAKES!!!


I was so excited when Kim told me about her Cupcake Carnival - what a great idea!!!

Now, I'm not a great cook or baker. But, I DO love making them!





I even gave some Cupcake Mix away for my birthday last year.


To celebrate my love of cupcakes, I made a Burlap Cupcake Pillow. I'd like to share the tutorial and FREE download with you.

Here's what I did to make my Cupcake Pillow:

I made my pillow out of burlap, but you can use any fabric. I bought some transfer paper - you can buy it at any fabric store, but Walmart also sells it. If you are using a light-colored fabric, you can use the transfer paper for light fabric --- it will say that on the front. This kind of transfer paper is see-through and you have to reverse your image before you print it out. There will be an option in your Print Options that says "transfer paper" or " Mirror Image". If you are using a dark colored fabric, you can buy heavier transfer paper that sits on top of the material and is not see-through.






Here's what the image looks like if you print it on the heavier material that's made for darker colors:


I went into Microsoft Publisher and made the graphic. It was really easy to do. HERE is the file, if you want to make your own pillow!


Thanks for letting me come over and celebrate cupcakes with you!

It's been so fun!!

XOXO
