Valentine Cupcake Liner and Coffee Filter Garland

I just can't stop myself. I was at the cheap cheap grocery store buying not so cheap groceries. Geez! Groceries are expensive now days. Am I the only one that thinks so?

Well I was on the coffee aisle loving coffee filters and saw these disc coffee filter. I hadn't noticed them before. I grabbed a bag for $1.49 and then I saw some really cute cupcake liners for $1.58 and decided to give myself a challenge to come up with some. Here's what I came up with.

Here's how you can make this cool garland.

Simple simple. Grab your supplies:
Coffee filter disc liners
Cupcake liners
StazOn ink pad in Blazing Red
Yarn or thread or twine
Background stamp

I didn't have a large background valentine's stamp pad so I rigged one up.

I didn't have a large acrylic block so I took individual heart stamps and arranged them on the acrylic block. It worked like a charm.

Saturate you stamps and stamp on to the disc. The disc is thin and it bleeds through which is the whole point because you want both sides to have hearts on them.

Now thread your needle. 
Punch a hole through the cupcake liner. It doesn't matter if its through the bottom or the center of the inside of the liner for the first cupcake holder. But from there on rotate the direction with the next liner you do. 

Now stick the needle through the hole of the disc filter. Repeat until you have a lovely cupcake and disc coffee filter garland.

Pretty soon you will have a lovely garland and a cheap one also.
