Cute and Creative DIY Cupcake Box

Cute and Creative DIY Cupcake Box

It's a good thing this Cute and Creative DIY Cupcake Box is not edible because it is way too pretty to eat. This sparkly paper craft cupcake holder is fun to make and really adds a personalized element when you're gifting a homemade cupcake to someone special. However, just because this box is perfect for cupcakes, you can easily use this cute cupcake-shaped box to hold anything that fits. The embellishments on this project include sequins, ribbon, twine, lace, pearls, and glitter, so this cupcake box is full of glamour and shine.
