Butterfly Cupcake Picks

Last winter while I was in hibernation and not leaving the house, I half-heartedly planned on creating another Etsy shop, focusing on handmade paper items.  I went to town...for about a week, and then got tired of it all.  That's just what winter does to me.

So, now I need to throw a party, or two, because I have more than a few sets of these cute little cupcake picks that I made.


I found unlicensed butterfly images on the web, printed them,embossed them, and cut them all out by hand.  Then I used my Silhouette to cut out the medallions and inked the edges.  I glued them all together on toothpicks and tah dah!  The perfect addition to any cupcake!


These are high quality cupcake picks!
Even the backs are covered~
I also made photo corners and paper buttons for scrapbook/cardmaking embellishments.  I still think it's a fun idea, but now that summer's here, and I've come out of hibernation, I just don't have time for the assembly line.

I LOVE this green set~

Maybe next winter~

                                                   Happy Butterfly Week!

Your cupcake toppers are great, love them all. Great way to spend some long winter days. Why aren't you going to list them on your etsy store? You did such a nice professional job on them I would think people would want to buy them.
If I didn't make things like this myself I would buy them. I'm a paper crafting nut.
Spend much of my winter days/nights making paper crafts for gifts as I don't have an etsy store or blog.
Happy days

I love to make cards and these would be a cute addition. I like your use of just about any paper around. It's amazing what can look cute if used right! I have to copy ideas, don't think of them on my own!

Perfect for butterfly themed parties! Like the embossing on the sheet. How do you do that?
