Celebrate Cupcake Pick

Here is a project even the kids could help you create. Baking, icing and decorating cupcakes is always fun no matter the age. I think a few dozen cupcakes accented with this cupcake topper and displayed on a table would be adorable. You know your guests will love snagging these treats. You could even type or print different words describing your July 4th celebration. Below is a list of words I compiled that certainly describes this very important holiday.

Britain, Colonies, Jefferson, Declaration, Independence, Fourth, July, Philadelphia, Freedom, Nation, Thirteen, Hancock, Continental, Congress, Red, White, Blue, Stars, Stripes, Anthem, Flag, Liberty, Betsy Ross, America, United, States, Honor, Memory, Constitution, Loyalty, Memorial, Franklin

Supplies Needed:
Patterned Paper: Melissa Frances (Caleb, Daniel)
White Cardstock
ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink (Creamy Brown)
Self Adhesive Pearls: Melissa Frances (White)
Toothpicks
Star Template

Tools Needed:
Paper Trimmer
Martha Stewart Seal Punch
Scor-Pal or bone folder
