Valentine's Cupcake Kit

Valentine's Day will be here before you know it. Do you have all of your treats and treasures ready for your loved ones? If you recall, I made some Christmas Cupcake Kits during the holiday season. Once again, I've found the Pillsbury cake mix and matching frosting with sprinkles for Valentine's Day. So I'll be giving to this cute kit to my girls a few days early so that they can make their cupcakes for our special Valentine's Day dinner that we do every year. I used the adorable cupcake stamp from Lizzie Anne to make the outside tag, along with an AMuse sentiment too. The kit has the cake mix and some cupcake sticks inside and is tied up with ribbon and tulle on the outside. Here's a close up of the cupcake sticks. I colored them in with Copic markers and a silver Copic Spica glitter pen for the cupcake liners. The scallop circles are taped to lollipop sticks that can be found at Michael's or any cake and candy decorating store.
Here's a close up of the fancy tulle netting and heart ribbon. I used a Spellbinder's embossed circle and scallop cut circle for the big outside tag.
Here's a link to my friend Kendra's cupcake kit that she did HERE. I think hers are so adorable too!!!

Hey, Mish! Love your blog and inspiration! I made cupcake kits for families of my friends - thought you might want to know that I found some clear cellophane bags at Michael's called BASKET BAGS (in gift wrap section). I bought the SMALL size and it was large enough to fit the cake mix box, frosting, a rolled up dish towel and the cupcake picks. I tied a spatula with a ribbon bow to close it up.
