Ahhhh it feels so good to be blogging again! I’ve been busy busy busy these past few months what with moving (again!), getting our new house put together, and working on projects for the weddings of some friends of mine. But I’ve also been getting ready for Halloween! Mainly for Halloween treats, haha. In my next few posts, I’ll be sharing some fun cupcake topper projects with you. And to start, I’m gonna share my favorite design with you today!
I am seriously in love with the Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper in the Holiday Catalog. The colors are perfect for Halloween, and the designs are absolutely gorgeous. I knew I just had to use it for some of my Halloween projects this year. And it was perfect for these cupcake toppers.
I used the Designer Rosette Bigz XL Die to create the rosette base for these cupcake toppers. It made creating multiple rosettes a breeze. So much easier than scoring everything by hand! Plus that designer edging just can’t be beat! For the center of the toppers, I used the “treats for BOO” stamp from the Mixed Medley Hostess Set in the Holiday Catalog. I punched out the sentiment with my 3/4″ Circle Punch, then layered it on top of a contrasting piece of DSP from the same collection, punched out using the new 1-1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch (also in the Holiday Catalog).
These are also great for sliding into the 1″ x 8″ Cello Bags filled with treats. They’re a great alternative to favor tags.
Sorry I don’t have something more exciting for you yet. But I’m just warming up 🙂 Stick with me and I promise to have some more fun projects ready for you soon!
