A few years ago, I found this idea somewhere on the Internet.  It's so super cute and a great way to give a little gift with big impact.

Let me "bake" you up some sock cupcakes.  It's so easy and can work with any kind of socks -- fuzzy, festive, expensive or affordable.

Start with a pair of socks and a cupcake wrapper.  I love that with the CTMH Artiste Cricut cartridge, I can cut a cupcake wrapper out of any paper I want, any size I want.



Roll up the socks and tie them with some ribbon or twine.  I prefer to put the twine close to the bottom, so I can play with the "rolls", fluff them up, layer them and give them more of a cupcake shape.



Then simply insert them in the cupcake wrapper and embellish.  I like to use red pompoms to create a "cherry" on top.  The "Cutie Pie" Stamp of the Month is perfect for creating the SWEETEST tags to go with these cupcakes.



I find that fuzzy socks work the best.  They're nice and plump and you can even get them from the dollar store.  For this one, I used Snowhaven paper and added some candy striped buttons.



But the work socks turned out well too!  Great for the men in your life, like your sons, hubby or even a male teacher!  With this one, I used the cupcake stamp to stamp on the wrapper too, doodled with a gold metallic pen and added shine to the cherries with Liquid Glass.



If you want, place the sock cupcake into a clear plastic treat bag and tie with a ribbon to keep it all together.  What a sweet gift!
