Whether I was single or not, I've always been a fan of Valentine's Day. Ever since I was little, on Valentine's Day, my mom would give my brother and I a card and a stuffed animal. She was trying to teach me at a young age that you don't have to be in a relationship to receive presents. Remember the valentine grams that you would pass out to each classmate? It was way more fun when everyone participated and got one. Moral of the story, I do not discriminate against the singled. Valentine Cupcake Flags Materials: 4inch x 1inch stripped paper, valentine stamp, ink, valentine embellishment, ribbon, scissors, toothpick, glue or adhesive tape
There is a lot of room for creativity when making cupcake flags. They can be any shape or size you want and it'll only take a few minutes. I had white strips left over from a previous project but you can crop it to any shape you like. Fold the strip in half and cut the edge using patterned scissors. Stamp the flag using your desired valentine stamp and ink. (I used my new 'je t'aime' valentine rubber stamp and Versa Color ink color 57 "Old Rose"). Before you glue the toothpick to the fold, make sure the end is long enough to stick into a cupcake. Glue and wait to dry before adding any embellishments.
For the ribbon flags, cut ribbon to a desired length. Fold ribbon to mark where the toothpick goes. Apply adhesive and fold ribbon in half around the toothpick. Cut edge to finish.
Stay tuned for the next post, the recipe for the cupcake as seen in this post (Nutella Rolls).
