Cupcake Socks!

I saw this idea on Kim's blog and thought it would be a perfect gift for Ryan's aunts.  Something simple and inexpensive, but thoughtful.  

I started out with some fuzzy slipper socks and decorated scrapbook paper (something to resemble a cupcake wrapper.)  

I removed the ribbon and the tags from the socks, but kept them clipped together (don't want them thinking I'm giving them a used pair of socks!)

Then I put a rubber band around them to keep them rolled up.  I made sure the pom-poms were on top to add to the "cupcake look."

I cut a scalloped edge on the scrapbook paper to make it look like a cupcake liner.  Then I rolled the paper around the socks and hot glued it in place.   

Deliciously cute!

I wrapped them up in a cellophane bag and added a gift tag that reads:

Thanks for the idea, Kim!
