Make Your Own Cupcake Toppers

toppersclose

Cupcake Toppers are a great idea for Weddings, Birthdays, Graduation, Baby Showers, and just about any Holiday. They are also so easy to make. If you have an event coming up, and when isn’t there one, you can dress up your cupcakes with toppers made by you. If you care crafty then you probably already have most of these items at home.

What you need:
2″ Paper Punch
1 1/2″ Paper Punch
(these can vary depending on which size you prefer)
Hot Glue Gun
Glue Stick
Scrapbook paper in at least 2 colors (card stock is best, but not necessary)
Stickers/Cut Outs
Lollipop Sticks
Optional: Ribbon for added decor

Use your smaller paper punch and cut out a circle in the scrapbook paper. Place a sticker on this circle. Use your larger paper punch and cut out another circle on a different color of scrapbook paper. Use your glue stick on the back of the smaller paper and stick it in the center of the larger circle.

Next, use your hot glue gun and put just a little on the upper portion of the lollipop stick. Place your circles on the lollipop stick at about to the center of the paper. You can tie a little ribbon on the the lollipop stick for added decoration. Although they look just as cute without. If you put a small foam adhesive on the back of the sticker it will make the sticker look 3D. Pops right out at you and looks professional. Finally, place it in the center of your cupcake. Everyone will be wowed by the look of your cupcake toppers!

Imagine how pretty these are going to turn out!

Sorry for being slow on posting. I have really been having a hard time with the white balance on my camera lately. Everything is coming up yellow. I have adjusted the white balance, tried using a bunch of lights, and tried changing all of the settings. It has been cloudy outside and I need some pure daylight! I have another post that I am working on right now and I cannot wait to share it with you!

Twilight

Twilight Cupcakes

I hope you love the Twilight series, because I definitely do! My friends and I make sure to go and see each new release on opening day. Though they refuse to go at midnight, while I cannot wait to go! We usually have a sushi lunch first, and then off to Tinseltown we go. I made these cupcakes last year, but you haven’t seen them yet! Each cupcake represents one of the books. Can you pick them out? The apple is Twilight, ruffled tulip is for New Moon, the broken ribbon is Eclipse, and the chess pieces are Breaking Dawn. The cupcake toppers were made with marshmallow fondant and Wilton’s colors. I will have to share the marshmallow fondant recipe with you soon. It does taste so much better than Wilton’s. I am headed for New York today. I’ll make sure to check out some cupcakes for you (and Tiffany’s)!
