DIY Cupcake Toppers!

This week was Ava's turn to celebrate her "un" birthday at Preschool.  We decided on donuts as the treat! 

We bought some donuts and frosted them and added sprinkles.   We also thought it would be fun to box each of the donuts individually for each student to take the treat home from Ava.   We also made her some toppers to stick in the donuts!  Here are the donuts all boxed up and ready to go..

Here's a peek inside the top of the box.. Caution, Ava wanted Hot Pink and Green so they are just that!

When they opened up their treat boxes they were greeted by all kinds of love from Aves..

I made the sign in Silhouette Studio.  I made the circle lollie by resizing her photo to about 1 1/4 in. circle and wrapped it with some washi tape. I also made some little pom-type toppers too.  (I'll show you how to make them below)

I was also asked to help my friend Gabby with some toppers.  She is running for Secretary for a group she belongs to, so this is what I came up with for her...

I couldn't resist, I had to make some poms for her to stick in these cupcakes too for accent!

I  also thought these pom  toppers would be fun for 4th of July or Football games!!!  I know here in Utah we have a huge Football game between Utah and BYU every year.  How fun would these poms be in cupcakes for the game?? Or different colors for different teams or sporting events!

I"ll show you quick how I made the poms, soooo easy!  Take a regular sized single Cupcake wrapper...

Fold it in half...

Fold in half again and again until you reach a triangle like this...

Next take some scissors and starting at the circle edge,  cut some tiny strips about 1/2 of the way up...

next unfold it one fold and place a lollie stick in the lower portion of the pom...

Glue the stick to the wrapper, pinch the wrapper closed around the stick...

You can cut your lollie stick to a desired length!

Super easy and fun!

It has  been a cupcake topper-filled week around here!!! When we finished making Ava's treats, later that night she said, "Mom Thank you for helping me with my treats, I Love them!"  

 Awwww, that made me stop and enjoy the moment, I love that!

With Much "Sweet" Love & Gratitude,
