Looking for a creative way to brighten someone’s day?

Create these bouquets of mini cupcakes in under 15 minutes using a large rimmed coffee cup and a few easy craft supplies! I just used store bought mini cupcakes, but you could also definitely bake and decorate your own if desired.


DIY Mini Cupcake Flower Bouquets

Supplies Needed for One Bouquet:
  • Large Coffee Cup – I used these
  • 4 inch Styrofoam Ball (Large enough to fit snug inside cup)
  • Strong Toothpicks
  • Green Tissue Paper
  • 7 Mini Cupcakes (make your own or by store-bought)


  • Pick a coffee cup large enough for a 4 inch Styrofoam ball or half ball to fit snug and inside and won’t move around.
  • Place Styrofoam ball on top of a couple squares of green tissue paper and press down into cup.
  • Press a toothpick down into the Styrofoam ball on one side, but make sure it still points upward somewhat so the cupcake won’t slide off.
  • Press a cupcake on top of the toothpick.
  • Continue process around the side and in the middle.
  • Add additional pieces of tissue paper around the sides, if desired.

Notes:  I happened to buy all these supplies in-store at Walmart, including the cupcakes, and made sure the Styrofoam half ball I bought fit super tight in the cup when I was picking one to use. I think this same idea could work inside a decorative bowl, or small flower pot too! We had no issues transporting them and the cupcakes did not fall off in the car. Yay!


How cute would these be as a thoughtful gift for Teacher Appreciation, a Birthday, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, or as creative centerpieces at showers or parties? I LOVE how ADORABLE these cupcake flower bouquets turned out and also how quick they were to compile!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
