Valentine's Day Countdown - Day Eleven - Sock Cupcake

You may have seen these little goodies on other blogs. This is another quick, inexpensive gift for someone special!

Start with a pair of spa socks -- the fuzzier, the better! I found mine at Old Navy. Lay the pair out, one sock on top of the other (like they come from the store). Starting at the toe end, roll the socks up, keeping the bottom edge even. Place a rubber band around the bottom of the socks. Place a "cupcake liner" around the sock cupcake. You might have to work with the top a little to make it look more cupcake-like. I tucked a Tulip button into the top for a cherry. I measured the cardstock against the socks and just made it the height that looked good. Then I ran the piece through the crimper after stamping it. This would be a nice little gift, along with some lotion, to tuck into yesterday's gift box.

Items used (all items CTMH unless noted):
Cardstock: White Daisy
Stamps: Love Ya!
Ink: Hollyhock; Cotton Candy; Blush
Embellishments: Tulip Mini-Medleys
Other: Spa socks (Old Navy)

Now, more hopping!


  1. Super cute! I haven't seen these before but it would be a nice little gift for a friend! Great idea

  2. This is so cute! I love the "B&T" papers that you created for the wrapper.

  3. Each one I see just sells me a little more! My mom would love this! Thanks for sharing!
