Hello, We R Memory Keeper fans, Laura here. The holidays are the perfect time to share a special little treat with the ones you love. Today, I am going to show you how to make these fun sweet Valentine cupcake toppers using the new Precision Press and the Typecast typewriter.
I started with the butterfly stamp set. Line up the guide on the precision press. I aligned mine in the upper right corner. This way I could add my paper flush along the edges of the lower guide to do multiple stamp designs with ease.
I created multiples of the same design. I aligned a square of white cardstock in the corner. I started using the peach colored stamp pad with stamp number one.I repeated this process on several sheets of plain white cardstock.
In between stamps, I wiped off the guide with a baby wipe and dried with a cloth. Then, I used the pink stamp pad with the second stamp.
Again, I did all my butterflies with stamp two before moving on.
Lastly, I used the navy stamp pad and stamp three to create the outline of the butterfly. Then, I allowed all the stamped images to dry. Once they were completely dry, I cut around the edges of each butterfly leaving a small white border around each one.
I used more white cardstock and the Typecast typewriter to stamp the words “sweet valentine” on the cardstock. I love how the typewriter gives my toppers a vintage feel.
I cut circles around the words to create a background for my butterfly stamped images. I also cut out circles from this beautiful pink and gold striped paper from the Typecast collection.
To assemble my cupcake toppers, I started by adhering the white typed circle to the pink and gold paper using my sticky thumb adhesive. Then, I added an adhesive foam square to the back of the butterfly to attach it to the circles.
I used a strip of washi tape to attach my lollipop sticks to the back of the cupcake toppers.
This is the perfect way to share a ‘sweet’ treat with your ‘sweet’ valentine, this Valentine’s Day.
These would be really adorable to make for a class party. And you could even use them without the lollipop sticks as a fun gift tag.
