mini cupcake toppers

The only thing cuter than mini cupcakes are mini cupcakes with mini cupcake toppers (how many times do you think I can fit the word "mini" into one sentence?). 

I used my Silhouette to cut these little cuties out from black cardstock and scrapbook paper, so other than gluing the pieces together, there was very little work involved.  All of the shapes came from the Silhouette online store.

Each topper is simply taped to a toothpick and will be popped into a mini cupcake for the kids' Halloween birthday party this weekend.

My friend Sonja and I are a bad combo for party planning, because we tend to feed off of each other's craziness.  Even this afternoon, we were discussing ideas for more things to do and make (with the party only days away) ... we have to take turns reminding each other to calm down and focus on the current to-do list.  Do you have a friend like that?  It makes me laugh.

p.s.  Just a reminder that the promo for the new Silhouette Cameo ends Monday, Oct. 31st.  Use the code JILL to get a Cameo and your choice of a free starter kit.

Jill, I LOVE these. So cute and they seem simple enough even for me!
And I think you meant to say, "How MINI times can you say the word 'mini' in one sentence." Just sayin. :)

what kind of glue do you use to glue these on? also my silhouette has been cutting cupcake wrappers that had flowers on it cruddy in some spots- any suggestions? I thought it was maybe the mat, but I got a new one and it's better, but still not perfect. Maybe its my blade? but I havent made THAT much with my silhouette....

I just used a glue stick to put the pieces together, and taped the back to a toothpick.

As for your cutting issue ...

If the flower pattern is intricate, I'd suggest slowing down your cutting speed. Also, if the paper is thick, do a double-cut. I find that most of my cutting problems aren't because of the machine itself, rather that I need to tweak the settings. Hope that helps!
