Select Sitters shared this craft at Go Ask Mom's event at North Hills earlier this month, and I thought it was absolutely adorable. Bonus: It's incredibly easy and the kids loved it!
Kara Varnell, a mom of two, former nanny and owner of Select Sitters, a local babysitting service, shares how it's done.
"This craft is great because it is easy for almost any age, although toddlers may need help with the glue," she tells me. "It's perfect for July 4, especially if you can find Independence Day-themed cupcake liners.
Cupcake Liners (I like using multicolored, but a good red, white, and blue or stars and stripes work great as well)
1. Cut slits in sides of cupcake liners do not cut the middle part that is flat (cut a slit in about every other indentation)
2. Flatten cupcake liners
3. Put glue underneath the white side of the liner
4. Glue onto paper
