Graduation Cupcake Toppers

My darling son graduated from 8th grade last week from Bethel Christian Academy. I am so proud of him. He was the class Salutatorian and gave a great speech. He also had an opportunity to lead the audience in a couple of Praise & Worship songs by singing & playing the guitar. This was the first time he did this and boy did my heart swell in addition to my eyes :)

Here is a picture of our handsome young man.

















Well, enough bragging about my son. On to my post. We had all the 8th graders over for a celebration. Rather than buy a sheet cake, I decided to make cupcakes. I made these quick toppers by using the autofill feature on my Cricut Expression. I used the Locker Talk cartridge and cut them at 2 inches. I used the Sakura white gel pen to outline the caps. I used the Xyron sticker maker to put adhesive on the back of the tassels, assembled, taped the toppers to toothpicks and stuck them in the cupcakes. Super easy and fast! I think they look good! They were also good in the tummy :)


























Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs!
Elaine
