Baby shower cupcakes

As I mentioned earlier, I am throwing my sister a baby shower in February. One of the most fun parts of planning a shower is the guest gifts.
This time I decided to go with something that each guest can use. Cozy Sock Cupcakes!
These were inspired by a seller on Etsy... I can't remember who now... but a simple search for sock cupcakes brings up several sellers offering similar things.
I just bought some cozy socks, rolled them and wrapped paper around them. The ribbon is a sewn felt ribbon and is adhered with mini staples. then the paper (Prima) flower is attached with a straight pin. That way the sock won't fall out of the paper (*wink)! I wanted them to look more like cupcakes... instead i think they look a little like flower pots. But Still I'm happy with them :)

That's all I got done today. My baby is home sick again, this time with stomach flu. So I am in full nursemaid mode, rubbing feet and just spending quiet time together. Why has this winter been so brutal?

Anyway, looks like more wintry weather tonight into tomorrow, so I may have both girls home! Hoping you are all safe and healthy out there!
See you soon!
