DIY: Honeycomb Cupcake

I have been inspired by all the cute honeycomb crafts that Studio DIY has been making, so I decided to give it a go and make myself a honeycomb cupcake. . . and you can too.

  • at least two different colored honeycomb balls (or honeycomb paper)
  • scissors
  • stapler
  • pen
  • cardstock
  • glue
  • cardstock in multiple colors
  • 1 inch round paper punch

The first thing you want to do is cut off the top and bottom of your flat honeycomb balls.

Decide which one of your colors you want to be the bottom to the top of your cupcake. Take the bottom and cut out a rectangle that is tapered slightly a long one side. Run a row of staples along what will be the inside of your cupcake bottom.

Now it is time to cut the top. Use your cupcake bottom to help determine the size and shape of your cupcake top.  Just free hand the top the shape of the top of the cupcake making sure you have a very flat bottom. Run a row of staples along what will be the inside of your cupcake top.

It's time to connect your two pieces. Take your pieces of plain cardstock and do a simple free hand cut in shape that is slightly smaller than the two of your combined cupcake pieces.

Glue your card stock pieces on to your to you cupcake cut pieces and let dry. 

Now it's time to open your cupcake, I use some white paper clips to secure the cupcake along the back side, but if you plan on leaving it open permanently you can just use some glue.

Optional: if you want to add a little more pizazz to your cupcake punch out some multi colored circles using your paper punch and your colored cardstock. Treat these like sprinkles and glue them on top of your cupcake.
