cotton candy sno-cone cups

while i was browsing the aisles of michael's, minding my own business, thinking to myself
"why the heck am i here? i have ENOUGH stuff!. 
go home Lisa! go home NOW before it's too late."

uh oh. too late.

i wandered into the $1 aisle. 

and my beady little eyes caught something that made me shout out loud "ALLELUIA!" only to gain strange looks from the old lady next to me. 
there in the aisle were sports themed goods.
i'm talking plates, favors, cups, napkins, cupcake liners.

all in time for my son's all-sports party!
it was like the gods sent me to michael's just for those things.
all for $1.00!

so of course i stocked up on the dollar stuff and one of the things i got were cupcake liners with toppers. 

but i knew full well i wasn't going 
to have cupcakes at my son's party. 
why? 
cuz i already made crazy treats (which i will post soon aside from these) and last time i made cupcakes for a party no one ate them.
i think it's cuz they like my crazy treats better. and i make so many crazy treats they have no room for normal cupcakes. 

i've created party monsters outta my friends.

anyway, i LOVE cupcake liners and toppers.
like, i have about 2,347,543,125,986,042 of them. 
so what's another few?

and who cares if i hardly make cupcakes cuz i don't wanna use up the purrtee liners?
they're so dang cute.
i have issues.

but this time i did use them and here's what i made:
here's what you do if you wanna make some too.
aside from the liners, grab some sno-cone cups, gumballs, cotton candy (from the dollar tree store), skewers and glue (oops forgot to take a pic of the last 2 things).

then just cut each sno-cone cup about 1/3 or so from the top and then do this:
you may have to trim the top of the sno-cone cup if it sticks outta the liner.
(add the cotton candy last minute-cotton candy gets nervous being out in the open and acts quite strange)
if that's not enough,
now remember, any cupcake liner will do! 
oh imagine the colorful concoctions you guys will come up with. can't wait to see them!

so now, 
what are you waiting for?.......

those liners are calling you!

  2. Fun idea! Love cotton candy, I like how it is easier to access now. You used to have to go to a fair or something to enjoy it. I just did the superbowl set on my site, I'm so glad my husband knew more about football than I did or they might have been pretty scary! http://printabelle.com/?p=8132 I hope your son has an awesome party!!!!!!

  5. Hi my name is Jen and I hoard cupcake liners.... also! LOL! oh my gosh, I'm in love with this idea!! Super cute and I will be doing this for sure soon, and for upcoming parties :) Ok I'm glad to know I'm not the only one with a cupcake liner fetish! I actually gathered all mine the other day and realized I need serious storage/organization for them all :) They are so cute I just can't pass them up at the store-especially on clearance!-
    Great idea, Thanks!

    1. hi Jen! welcome to cupcake liner anonymous!
      first step is to buy every liner possible.
      check.
      second step is use liner for everything else but cupcakes, like taking up too much space.
      check.
      third step is make sno-cone cups for cotton candy.
      yay! so happy you have this on your to do list and came by!
      see ya at the cupcake liner store! heehee :>D

    1. oh Tracey! you kill me with kindness every time! :>D i actually got the idea when i really wanted cotton candy for my son's party but i was way too cheap to buy a bag for each kid (24!) aside from all the other treats i made so i had to figure out how to divide one bag into multiple servings. funny how an empty wallet causes you to change your mind! heehee many thanks again!
