DIY Cupcake Liner Organizer

Some of you out there may be wondering if cupcake liner  organization and storage is really something worth discussing. To most, probably not.  To me it's a bit of a necessity.  I tend to collect cupcake liners like I do writing tools.  So, storage and organization are key for me.


On Monday, I posted my DIY tin can organizers.  Today we're going to use oatmeal containers.  They're the perfect size for storing all your cute cupcake liners.  And if you have more liners than you can count, don't worry because you can fit about 20 stacks of liners per container!


Besides my oatmeal container, (I used a Kroger brand 18 oz. oatmeal) I just used scrapbook paper, ribbon, and a tissue paper flower I made.  I just taped the paper and ribbon on in the back, but did use some hot glue for the flower.


So easy, so cute, and so functional (for cupcake liner collectors like myself).  See how the liners sit perfectly in the container?  I LOVE it!  


The profile isn't quite as cute as the front (somewhat reminiscent of those fun 9 month pregnant profile pictures), but at least you can see the ribbon from this view.

Of course you can use the oatmeal container for anything you'd like to store, or give away.  My mom used to put the yummy honey popcorn inside these and wrap them in wrapping paper for neighbor gifts.  Endless possibilities!

  1. Oh I have an obsession with cupcake liners.. so you can say I have my very own cupcake liner shop;) Definitely could use some organizing. I used to keep them in a spaghetti jar but I dropped it and cracked it unfortunately. Using an oatmeal container is definitely a safer bet!

    1. I LOVE the idea of a clear jar! You could see the liners that way. I think I'll have to try a clear jar for the liners that mach my decorating for the month, then keep the rest in the oatmeal container. Does that make sense? Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by and commenting! It's nice to know I'm not alone in my cupcake liner obsession!

    1. You're smart to buy in bulk! This probably sounds crazy, but sometimes I wish I could go through other people's trash and fetch all the thrown out storage solutions! Anyway.... thanks so much for stopping by!

  7. This is a great idea! Mine are always getting shoved into the pantry corner and squished.

    1. That's exactly why I came up with this idea. Mine were always stacked a mile high in my cupboard and would come tumbling down every time I opened the cupboard. Now they can just sit out and look cute! Thanks for your comment!
