Loraine loves arts and crafts and used to volunteer at an elementary art class. She loves sharing fun and easy craft tutorials.

This article shares a great number of cupcake paper crafts, or cupcake liner crafts, whichever you choose. I searched to find cupcake paper crafts which included a nice image of the craft, and also shared instructions or tutorials. There were a lot more cupcake liner crafts, that fulfilled this criteria, than I expected. Cupcake liners come in so many different colors and prints that the projects that you like can probably be made for any occasion, season or holiday.

To make the outstanding chandelier shown above, go to Design Sponge for the tutorial.
