Hello friends, happy Friday :) Today is a very special day because it's my birthday! And I am celebrating with these adorable paper cupcake treats.

No seriously, I love my birthday, and I love having it in May. It's when the tulips here begin to bloom, and soon I'll be potting some pretty colourful annuals to last me the summer through. Gardening is one of my other passions that I don't often talk about here on the blog. But on top of all that, we eat cake!

For today's project though, I'll take these adorable looking cupcakes. They were so fun and easy to make, and once you get the hang of it, you can whip one up in under ten minutes. This actually wasn't a planned project - it was a last minute attempt. But I had everything I needed to see it through, so why not! I couldn't be giddier about how they turned out. I love those kinds of projects!
