I love to make my own trinket pins so I thought it would be cute to make a little cupcake trinket pin cushion for my pins. :)


It's such a fun and easy project! 


I started with this firm packaging sponge that could fit inside my silicone cupcake mould. I shaped the edges with a scissors.


I wrapped the sponge in a light brown remnant piece of cloth to serve as the "cupcake", then hot-glued the pearls along the circumference. I added some vintage lace trim to cover up the glue marks, then added a ribbon bloom and a resin bloom for the "topping".  I finished with some trinket pins that I made along with some Maya Road leaf pins.


My mum loves this idea and will be teaching her kids at school how to make this cupcake trinket pin cushion. It would make such a sweet and non-fattening gift, eh? *winks*
