Clip-Art Craft: Cupcake Toppers

You don't need special piping tips to render your children's favorite things in icing. Just tuck these paper flags into the frosting of their birthday cupcakes for darling-and instant-decorations. Use all six of our designs or let your child choose the one she likes best. Making them is a piece of cake: Simply photocopy the flags in color, cut them out, and then tape each to a toothpick.



  1. Step 1

    Photocopy images above in color onto white card stock, or download them and print them out.

  2. Step 2

    Cut out using scissors or a 2-inch-circle craft punch (turn it upside down so you can easily see the positioning, as shown at left).

  3. Step 3

    Tape a toothpick or short skewer to the back of each cutout.

  4. Step 4

    Insert toothpicks into frosted cupcakes.

    These are wonderful as a cut tag for gifts. Use your 2" craft punch, and also punch out a coordinating color card stock printed with "Happy Birthday, From" and affix it to the back. punch a [filtered word] for ribbon, and you're set. Easy to grab when you're in a hurry to wrap a gift and get out the door.
