Make Your Own Obama Cupcake Toppers

Favorite cupcakery not baking Inauguration cupcakes? No worries! One of the blog readers, Cindy Hopper, who is a Craft Contributor over at the Alpha+Mom, showed me this really cool method for making your own Obama Cupcake Toppers! All you need are some toothpicks, a large circle punch (1 3/4 " to 2"), scissors and a glue-stick.

Here are the templates Cindy provides:

Printable Obama Cupcake Toppers and Stickers
Printable Inaugural Circle Cupcake Toppers
Printable Inaugural Flag Cupcake Toppers
Printable Flag Cupcake Toppers

Cindy says to “Download a cupcake topper PDF and print on card-stock. Center the image in the punch and cut. The large open bottom of this circle punch makes it really easy!”

“Place glue on the backs of the circles and sandwich a wooden pick in between two circles.”

“For the triangle flags fold in half, cover inside with glue and place a wooden pick in the fold.
