Handmade Valentine cupcake toppers

I love cupcakes, and I love cupcake toppers, too. I’ve made Michigan Mitten brownie toppers, so it’s no surprise I made my own cupcake toppers for a batch of cupcakes I’m taking to work on Valentine’s Day. These couldn’t be easier. I simply used some longer toothpicks, some fun accessories (pipe cleaners and ribbon), and a heart punch to make a clean shape to sandwich all the pieces together. Add a few drops of hot glue and, POOF, cupcake toppers. I added some extra glitter hearts on top of mine.

Fun to make and if you’ve got some scraps lying around the house, definitely cheaper than buying them at the store. Unless you buy them on clearance Feb. 15 ;)
