DIY Easter Cupcake Toppers

I just love cupcakes and thought I would create an Easter Theme Cupcake Topper for Easter theme project assigned to me. Perfect excuse to bake some yummy cupcakes.

Don't forget to follow the link and check out the Easter giveaway package!

To qualify use this link ->
I made some carrot cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. It's the perfect Easter treat for everyone.

First, I prepared the decorative tag and added a bunny silhouette. I used my Silhouette SD to achieve this design. 

 Then, I stamped the sentiment using PSA Essentials Peel and Stick Topiary Stamp Set.

Added the wooden picks and that's it! It's super easy and dresses up any cupcake in a hurry.

My Easter cupcakes on parade.
