Since I opened my Etsy shopOpens in a new tab. I’ve added new items from what I originally was selling and I discovered my love for making cupcake toppers!  As you probably know, I take part in the #DIYBlogChallenge every month and we have a theme for our projects.  This month we chose washi tape.  This was my first time using it and I have to say, I really love it and look forward to lots of future projects using it!  I created washi tape cupcake toppers that are perfect for any occasion.  Be sure to see at the end of my post what my fellow blogger friends made for the challenge!

I remember when I was a kid, my mom would always try to bake me a fancy cake for my birthday.  She would buy a cake pan in a character shape and try to frost it like the picture that came with the pan.  She really tried, but this usually ended in disaster because I don’t think she ever took any cake decorating classes and she was by no means a professional.  Of course, I never cared, but she was always frustrated that her efforts didn’t pay off.

I feel like cupcakes are such an easier way to do any kind of party.  If you have a cute cupcake wrapperOpens in a new tab. and topper, no one really cares if they’re frosted to perfection and you don’t have to try to make fancy flowers and write in frosting.  These washi tape cupcake toppers are seriously going to take you about 30 seconds to make each one and they cost practically nothing to make.  I’ll show you how is easy it is!
