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.
