Clip-Art Craft: Cupcake Toppers

Steps:4
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.

Hide & Chic Bracelets: How To

Leather bracelets work well with almost any personal style: A thin single strand looks sleek and modern, while a loose grouping of bracelets conveys a bohemian vibe. Make them yourself with little more than some basic, inexpensive cord and clasps. Soon you’ll have plenty of choices to wear -- and plenty to give away as gifts.
Materials
  • Bead (for bead closure)
  • Cord
  • Hook-and-loop clasp (for hook-and-loop closure)
  • Multiuse adhesive, such as Duco Cement (for hook-and-loop closure)
  • Paper plate (for hook-and-loop closure)
  • Straight pin (for hook-and-loop closure)
  • Shank button (for button closure)
  • Embroidery floss (for button closure)
