Cupcake Toppers

Good morning,
I so apologize for not having my post up.  I was on vacation and thought I had pre-posted this as well, but clearly I was wrong.  Here is a quick idea for cupcake toppers.
I used my cookie cutters to cut out my Creative Paperclay.
Then I placed a toothpick between two layers of the Paperclay
and used a stylus to smooth out the edges.
If the paperclay dries too quickly, you can always
add a bit of water and do some more smoothing.
After the clay had completely dried, I painted both
the hearts and the toothpicks with acrylic paint.
and stamped this cute face from Peachy Keen's 
Everyday Characters.  She looks so happy.

Now, just think of all the holdiays that are coming up.  You could do Christmas trees, pumpkins, etc.  I hope I've inspired you to make some cupcake toppers and would love to see some of your own creations.  You can see more paperclay creations at my blog
