DIY: Paper Flower Cupcake Toppers

CUPCAKES for Everyone!I love serving cupcakes at parties…they are delicious, easy and guests love indulging in mini cakes.  I am also a huge fan of making custom decorations.  The toppers are quick to make and the impact is pretty fun.  These toppers I made for a baby shower I hosted for my little sis.

Let’s Make
Punch or cut paper circles and flower shapes from scrapbook paper.
Gather paper flowers.
Layer up the circles to create a design plan.
I like to mix and match sizes, colors and prints.
Hot glue the layers together.  Hot glue a gem or button to the center.
(The pink wand is the Hot Glue Gun Helper press wand)
 Hot glue half of a bamboo skewer or candy stick to the back of the cupcake topper and place in the center of the cupcake.
Guests will love to gobble them up!

DIY New Year’s Eve Party Signs

Party Signs for New years Eve

Create a fun and welcoming sign with a small TOP HAT & some scrap book paper. I did a little embossing and added some fabby rhinestone letters. Perfect for on a bar or buffet table.

Craft a yard sign made from foam core board. Place it on your front walk so guests can easily find your home and neighbors can get in the New Year’s Eve spirit.
