Helene Huber: Carnival of Cupcake Toppers

You can make any gathering more festive with some quick and easy cupcake toppers, especially if you save even more time by buying the cupcakes!!!!

Start with lollipop sticks which you'll top with layers of circle and scallop punched papers.  I stamped images from the Carnival Dreams stamp plate onto various papers and cut them with a circle punch.  After quickly coloring with color pencils and a gold sparkle pen, I adhered them to the scallop circles and added gold dots.

Note:  instead of cupcake toppers, you can use the same concept to sandwich a wrapped circle candy in-between the scalloped circles (such as a wrapped chocolate peppermint patty).  Or perhaps some napkin rings? Drink coasters (with a little glue and seal) ??  I know, I know--now  you're thinking about all the great Rogue Redhead stamps that you can use for various holidays to make your table even more festive!

To keep with this month's color theme of gold, purple and green, I bought cupcakes frosted in green and dark purple.  I added to the sticks curling ribbon and baker's twine in matching colors.  As you can see I placed 3 of the cupcakes in a pedestal bowl draped with carnival beads. They are so laden with festiveness that I put one cupcake on the table in front of the bowl so that you could get the full effect of the topper.














                                                                         
Our featured Carnival Dreams stamp plate is on special this month. Carnival Dreams is currently available in the RRD store for US$3.75!  That's half price!
