Cupcake Wars: Day Three - Milky Way

This is day three of our Cupcake Wars!

Here are our ingredients for the day.
2.5 in Styrofoam balls
Cupcake baking cups 
Ribbon (For this project, I chose May Arts' TG32 Gross Grain Stripes)
Glue Gun

Start off with gluing the tip of your ribbon.

Curl your ribbon in to adhere and create what looks like a piece of shaved chocolate.

Repeat the last two steps until you have enough curls to fill the top half of the foam ball. (I used 3 yards of ribbon, approximately 50 curls.)

Randomly glue the curls on your foam ball starting at the top, working your way down. You don't need to have it uniformed. Having the ribbons face different directions creates the right effect!

Once you have the top half of the ball completely coverd, glue around the ball directly underneath the ribbon.
Place the ball in the cupcake liner and press lightly to adhere the liner to the foam ball.

Here is the Milky Way!

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial. 
I would love to see what you guys create!
