DIY Window Leaf Cupcake Flags

5 Jan

So a while back (and by ‘while’ I mean in September, #shamerattles), a friend came to visit and we got into some serious Cricut action.

The result?

DIY Window Leaf Cupcake Flags on Carrot Cake

These super-sweet window leaf cupcake flags. Perfect for fall. Displayed on carrot cake and my-favorite-ever-cream cheese frosting.

Just cut out all the shapes, assemble with glue, and then attach the finished flags to toothpicks.

I like to use glue sticks for this type of work, hence the magazine laid out for scrap paper / workplace protector. I’ve tried rubber cement and liquid glue, but I remain a big fan of my first-grade glue stick method.

And seriously, get a Cricut. It’s awesome.

Because when you give a girl a Cricut, she’ll probably do a lot of crafts…like a lot a lot.

    I keep thinking of getting a Cricut, but the price is what keeps my hands from taking it to the cash. You really like it?

      I really enjoy it – unfortch, the price is a bit to take in. Plus there are the cartridges to purchase too, if you want more than what the Cricut comes with. There is a bit of a learning curve in how to use it too, but there are tons of online tutorials. I’d wait for sale or use a coupon – JoAnn and Michaels usually put them on sale every so often.

        Someone must know you well to have gifted you such a great gift!

        Thanks, I’ll keep that in mind, and be on the lookout for a sale. 🙂
