Quick & Easy Sweet Cupcake Canvas

This cupcake is sweet, easy…and calorie free! Perfect for celebrating a special occasion like a birthday or for decorating a kitchen, our cupcake canvas can be customized to suit any color scheme very simply. All that is needed to customize the design is to change the fabric colors, and the options are endless!

Button Cupcake Canvas. Great home decor for celebrating a special occasion or for kitchen decor.

To start your design, iron Heat-n-Bond to the reverse of your purple and turquoise fabric following package instructions. Cut cupcake wrapper and lettering on your Cricut Explore machine following instructions in this blog post.

Cut the top of the cupcake out of cardstock to be used as a template.

Iron the fabric pieces in position following instructions on the Heat-n-Bond package. Trace around the cupcake topper template lightly with a disappearing fabric pen or pencil to create an outline of where to place the buttons for the frosting.

Wrap the background fabric around the canvas and attach to the back of the canvas using a staple gun. To create an extra neat edge, turn the raw edge of the fabric under before stapling.

Using a glue gun, adhere the buttons to create the frosting and the stripes on the cupcake wrapper.

To finish your canvas, cut the stems off of a few 3D Sweet Delights buttons and use the glue gun to fasten them in place scattered around on your letters. Don’t forget to put the cherry on top of the cupcake!

Now you can enjoy your cupcake canvas, or treat someone special with it! (But don’t be surprised if you start feeling hungry….)
