This past weekend my darling daughter turned twelve (I’m till not sure how she grew so fast), and to celebrate, we had a beach bonfire birthday complete with dinner, s’mores, and tasty cupcakes. I wanted the cupcakes to be extra special for her birthday, so I came up with some fun cupcake toppers made from tissue paper that I just love!
The idea for these came after I finished a chalkboard and tissue paper tassel garland for the party, and realized that I had tons of tissue paper left over, and a lot of colorful cupcakes that needed a little something more on top.
I just love the way these little beauties look they are exploding at the top of each cupcake… almost like a candle, or better yet, fireworks, on top of each one!
They are fun and quick to make, but are impressive to all your cupcake eaters.
- Tissue paper (I used five sheets in five different colors)
- Martha Stewart fringe scissors
- Glue gun
- Sucker sticks or toothpicks
