DIY Cupcake Holder

I was trying to figure out a neat little gift I could make for my good friend and sorority sister this weekend when she came to town to visit. I haven't seen her in about a year! So my first thought is food (this is the South haha), but then I thought wouldn't it be fun if I decorated what I put the food in.

What You'll Need:
Plastic Cake Holder (You can find them at Wal-mart)
Colored Paint Pens

1. The first thing I did was type out her last name in Curlz MT font and tape it underneath the plastic lid. I traced the letters using a sharpie, then filled it in using a black paint pen. Try using a paint pen that has a fine tip. 

2. I then drew circles on the lid using colored paint pens. I outlined the big circles and then did small circles in alternating colors. I used blue and orange because she's a Florida Gator fan and thought this would be cute to bring at a tailgate. 

3. Tie matching ribbon on the handle and you're done! This is a great gift for people who like to tailgate or you could use sorority colors to be a gift for a little or big.

What I liked most about the pan was that it had plastic holders inside for deviled eggs or cupcakes. You can fill the pan with anything you want (cookies, brownies, or cupcakes) as a sweet treat for your friend.  

Alright, and Bachelorette last night... Arie is a winner. And why in the world did she not get rid of Kalon? He is so rude!

Have a great Tuesday!
