Clip-Art Craft: Cupcake Flags
Signal a special occasion by topping the dessert course with checkered "good luck" banners or sunburst "birthday" medallions. Dressed like this trio of cupcakes, your treats will pass any test of festivity with flying colors.
- Clip art
- Party toothpicks
- Candy-colored beads
Download our clip art, print on a color printer, and cut out.
Cut out one of the strips and fold it in half vertically. Apply craft glue to the top third of a party toothpick, slip it into the fold so it sticks out slightly at the top, and hold it in place until dry. Affix banner halves together with a glue stick.
Cut out two circles. Place one facedown; use a glue stick to affix a toothpick along the circle's diameter so the toothpick's tip juts just beyond the circle's edge. Attach a short length of folded ribbon at the bottom. Affix other circle face up. Apply a dot of craft glue to the top of your flagpole; slip a small bead over the end.
