I know you can't tell from this photo but the dress and cupcake are made with the same patterned paper. I used the scallop circle bigz to make the cupcake. I cut out 8 pieces, wrinkled them individually in the palm of my hand, gently unfolded each one, stacked and attached them in the center with a brad. Once they were attached I started with the center scallop and worked down, scrunching each one tightly upward and inward, around each another. Lastly, I gently unfolded each one into the form I desired. Hint: the thinner the paper the better. The cupcake liner is from my pantry!
