Crafty With Cupcake Liners

Earlier this week I shared a few tweaks I made to my craft room. Today after work, I tweaked another area. I was inspired to do this after creating this new banner for my window last night. I have been seeing these cupcake liner and doily banners all over the web and finally decided to make one for myself. I had all the supplies on hand so it cost me nothing to make.
It turned out super cute!


I like the way it looks in the window with the light coming through. It was a little rainy and overcast when I took these photos earlier.


Here's the corner of the room I tweaked. two shelves in this corner. One holds paint and fabric and the other holds items to list on Etsy.


You may remember this little wooden, pedestal bowl I bought a few weeks ago. I gave it a paint job in sea glass and it sits atop the little table I also thrifted several weeks ago. I am still deciding on a paint color for the table. The wooden box under the window holds all my tools.


Here's a shot of the two shelves. It's hard to get a good shot of the one holding the Etsy items, but it's OK since it's all cluttered. All 5 shelves are filled and I have 4 plastic totes filled under the guest room bed as wewll!


See those two "wood" boxes above filled with paint? Those are just cardboard boxes covered with wood look wrapping paper. When you go to Sam's Club, they don't bag your items, but you can grab boxes to place your items in. I always choose good boxes and reuse them if I can.

Before
After
They are perfect for my paints. I love my paints and use them often.


One last look at the banner. Here's a close-up of each cupcake liner. I added a few little embellishments to each one. You can click on the picture and enlarge it if you want to see.


Hopefully I will be back tomorrow with my mirror makeovers. 
Thanks for visiting!
Until next time.....
