On Top of a Cupcake

Cupcake toppers seem to be the most popular way to decorate cupcakes these days. I love them because I am not a cupcake decorator but I am a paper crafter so cupcake toppers allow me to create beautiful cupcakes. I can also cheat and buy store bought cupcakes and personalize them using a topper.
These are the toppers I created for a friend's birthday party.

I used the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection to create my flowers. The collection from Close to My Heart features the Cricut cartridge which I used to cut out the flowers and 3 Acrylic stamps sets. One features this great flower. I stamped my flower with CTMH ink color Lagoon. You can purchase CTMH products here.

I have an obsession with distressing. I used chocolate ink to distress the ends of the flower and backing. Then I attached the stamped flower to the card stock with a piece of foam adhesive so it had some dimension. I attached each to a toothpick and that was it.

I admit it - I cheated and bought cupcakes from Safeway, but hey they make really good cupcakes. Much better then what I could have baked and so much easier to do when you have a toddler in tow. 

If you find yourself putting together a party, think about making some cupcake toppers to personalize your bash.

Until next time,
