Kids Craft: My Sweet Cupcake Ornament

A cute craft for kids that makes an adorable Valentine's Day gift for someone special!

Crafted by Laurie.


  • 1 Headstone Box
  • 1 Doodle Bug 12" x 12" Paper in Sweetcakes
  • 1 Doodle-Pops Cardstock Cupcake Sticker
  • Kelly Panacci Embossed Stickers (Valentine Theme)
  • Delta Ceramcoat Acrylic Paint in Cardinal Red
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Adhesive
  • Pencil

All supplies used for this project can be found at our Bonney Lake store.

  1. Trace the headstone box onto the paper.
  2. Cut out the shape and set aside.
  3. Use the paintbrush to apply the paint completely to the headstone box. Set aside to dry.
  4. Once dry, adjust the shape of the paper to fit into the box by trimming (if needed).
  5. Then, glue the paper to the inside of the box. You can use an adhesive of your choice but for this project, Laurie used 527 Multi-Purpose Glue.
  6. Place the "Sweet" sticker from the Kelly Panacci sticker sheet towards the top part of the paper.
  7. Place the Doodle-Pops cupcake sticker towards the bottom of the paper. You are not limited to using this particular sticker as you can very well choose a different cupcake sticker to use for this project.
  8. Proudly display in an area of your home or give it as a gift.

And the creativity does not stop there! Your child can embellish the sides with glitter, stick-on jewels, ribbon, etc. or even decide to paint designs onto the box. Remember, the possibilities for creativity are endless!
