DIY Spring Cupcake Toppers

Credit has to go to my lovely Mom for these! Recently when her work had a bake sale, she wanted a way to 'dress up' simple cupcakes to fit the event's Springtime theme so she decide to make her own toppers with some thin coloured card, washi tape and cocktail sticks!
 If you want an easy project this springtime, here's how to make this floral beauties...

Tulips
You'll need: Pink coloured card; thick scrap card; scissors; glue stick; green washi tape; and cocktail sticks
Wrap pieces of the washi around the cocktail sticks (as shown below) and cut them into leaf shapes
Draw a Tulip shape onto the scrap card and cut out. Use this as a template to cut some identical Tulip shapes from the pink card - you'll need two shapes for each topper
Use the glue to stick two Tulip shapes together with the end of a cocktail stick sandwiched between them
Easy...

Daffodils
You'll need: Yellow coloured card; thick scrap card; scissors; craft knife; glue stick; yellow tissue paper; green washi tape; and cocktail sticks
Use the washi tape to create leaves(as with the Tulips)
Create a Daffodil petals shape template with the scrap card and use it to cut a number of the same shape out of the yellow card. As with the Tulips, you will need two of the shapes for each topper.
Take two of the yellow cut outs and use the craft knife to cut a small hole in one of them.
Push a small circle of yellow tissue through the hole in the petal shape so it forms a Daff's 'trumpet' and tape it in place at the back (as shown below)
Stick a plain yellow cut out and one with the tissue paper together with a cocktail stick in between

Daisies
You'll need: White card; yellow coloured card; thick scrap card; scissors; glue stick; green washi tape; and cocktail sticks
Create washi tape leaves on the cocktail sticks (See Tulips)
Cut a Daisy shape out of the scrap card to for a template and use it to cute Daisy shapes from the white card
Cut small circle shapes from the yellow card for the Daisies' centres and stick them onto half the white cut out shapes
Stick a plain white shape and one with a centre together with a cocktail stick in between



Happy Springtime! x
