Not just for cupcakes


Happy Monday, everyone! How was your weekend? All set for Halloween? I'm almost there but I still have a couple of treat bags to finish up. Why didn't I get them all done? Well, cos' I really wanted to play with the new Spooky Soiree Cupcake Topper set from LD.  And...I didn't even make a single cupcake!


 Just because they called the set "cupcake topper" doesn't mean that I had to use the file as such. I made cards and little note cards that may also be used as place cards. And how about a treat bag topper?

These were really easy to make because all that I did was to print the images out with my $32 inkjet printer and punch them out with my Circle punch. Then I glued them down to a card front and embellish. My 2nd grader was so inspired she even made a bookmark!


 By the way, I flocked the spider on the "Beware" card with black flocking to increase the creepy factor. The eyes are little red rhinestones.
 

For the bat card, I increased the size of the image before printing it out. I wasn't able to find the right ribbon to attach to the card so I cut off a strip from a page from the Spooky Soiree paper pack


Browsing the LD site, I came across three other cupcake topper files:




Imagine all the possibilities with these circular images! Print, punch, and glue. You can even increase the sizes of the image for a different look. Did I mention that the Spooky Soiree Cupcake Toppers set is only $1 right now? Yup. Tons of fun for just one buck! I don't know if LD will increase the price later but for just a dollar, I think that set is a pretty good deal. ;-)

  3. Thanks jayma, joeygirl, and Sheena! :-)

    The sentiments are from a sheet of clear stamps that I bought from Joann's last year but you can certainly print them out or write them in like my kid did on her bookmark. She used a white gel pen on the black cardstock. :-)

  4. These are great! I love how you did the bat card, a different idea I never would have thought to try. Thanks for sharing these! Now I've got to get to work on my kids treats for school!
