So Lucky to be National Craft Month!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! Not only do we get to celebrate this month with green, shamrocks, and's also National Craft Month! What better reason to "get your craft on!" Well, I wish to bring you a bit o'both! You may have seen these all over the internet...cupcake toppers! They are cute and make for great accents to not only cupcakes, but also as little tags and notes And they are super easy to make!!!
So first gather your materials:

  • punches-various sizes
  • paper-in whatever shade catches your fancy-I'm using purple and green
  • stamp ink and soft sponge-for inking the edges-gives it and extra "umph!
  • glue-for the layers
  • computer-if you are going to print your design instead of using stickers or traditional embellishments.I used the awesome digital buttons created by one of our very own SOC artists, Aysha!!!-you can find the post for them here!
  • ribbon-for an extra touch if using as a tag
  • toothpicks-if using as a topper
  • love-just your love of making things!


-print or make your design

-punch out your paper

-arrange first how the layers will appear-I like to make sure the back is also decorated

-now edge your papers in the ink color of choice with your sponge-this really sets off the piece!

-glue one side, then adhere toothpick if making a topper

-glue next set then glue on top of first set

-if making a tag-punch hole on top and add ribbon.

-be sure to give them away and delight in the look on their faces! It also helps to have the cupcake!

-Remember that you can make these for any occasion and they make a fun lasting impression. And trust me, everyone will marvel in what you created!!
