With our big Back in the Day Bakery book signing bash right around the corner, I have nothing but sweet treats on the brain. The cupcake craze has definitely hit us all hard and what better to add an extra dose of cuteness to these dream desserts, than with a fabric flag cake topper!
4 Inch Bamboo Skewers
Colored Tape (Optional)
Help your skewers pack a pretty punch by wrapping them with colored or patterned tape. I am just head over heels for the designs and colors we carry in the store. Its a good way to add some fun contrast to your fabric flags and provide a nice pop of color.
Trace a triangle onto a stiff piece of paper (this will act as your stencil). Trace around your stencil with an ink pen onto the back of you chosen fabric. Continue by cutting out your flag shapes.
Stamp your chosen designs onto your newly cut flags. Plan ahead by setting aside half of your cut out pieces. These will serve as the coordinating backs to each flag. Try stamping a cheerful message, a party theme, or the age of your special birthday someone.
Thoroughly coat the back of one of your plain flags with craft glue. Place your skewer against the flat edge of your triangle on top of the glue.
Place your printed flag (right side up) on top of the glue covered flag, sandwiching the skewer in between the two. Let dry completely before placing on your cupcake.
A perfectly printed topper for you next cupcake camp-out!
Join us April 26th from 5-7pm as we celebrate the much beloved Back in the Day Bakery and their new cookbook, with a book signing bash!
See you there, and until then, Happy Crafting!
