My different cupcake designs have been proving very popular. Now, I know how tricky it can be to source lots of different beads for one project. So, this Valentines Cupcake beaded box kit gives you all the materials you’re going to need to make your cupcake. The kit doesn’t include instructions, so you will also need to purchase the pattern here>>
The Valentines Cupcake beaded box kit contains:
- Size 10 delicas – in cake colour and chocolate
- Size 15 delicas – in cake colour
- Seed beads in sizes 15, 11 and 8 – in white
- Size 11 delicas – in red and green
- 3mm round silver beads
- 4mm round red beads
You will need to provide your own beading thread. You can use whatever type you like best. If you need to buy some thread – or any other materials – remember to check out my beading supplies.
You are going to be working entirely in Peyote stitch. This pattern uses tubular and circular Peyote. So, you should feel comfortable with both these techniques before you try this project. You will need to understand how to make increases and decreases.
If this idea scares you, please don’t worry. You can download free tutorials from me to learn – or revise – all of these techniques. Plus, I am always on hand to help out with some advice via email.
So, yes, I have marked this as an advanced project. But as long as you are happy to follow detailed instructions and persevere, you can do this.
The pattern gives you 14 pages of instructions (remember, you need to buy it separately!). I have included written descriptions of what you need to do and photos and diagrams to illustrate the steps. I have also given you lots of great tips along the way.
About the Valentines Cupcake Beaded Box Kit
When I made my original cupcake beaded box, I realised I could have created a different construction for the lid. So, being a bit of a cupcake fan, I started thinking about all the gorgeous ways you can decorate them.
And why not celebrate a few of those ideas in beads? So, I searched for ideas for decorating real Valentines cupcakes. Then used that inspiration to create something in beads. You get sweet swirls of icing and an indulgent chocolate dipped strawberry with this one!
Now, Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to give someone you love a little gift. This cupcake will last forever and the Valentines Cupcake Beaded Box Kit gives you everything you need. So, once you’ve made it, you can fill it with something special, something frivolous, or a little sweet treat – or two! I guarantee your special someone will love it.
Then again, why keep this just for Valentine’s?
Who doesn’t want an indulgent cupcake – calorie free – at any time of the year?
