Topper flags make a simple cupcake festive and an extra lovely way to top off your cupcake creation. Buy wooden skewers or toothpick then cut 1/2 inch strips of your 12x12 paper. Wrap the paper strip around the skewer and wrap it like you would do to a tie around a neck. Then cut the ends. Decorative cupcake wrappers also make fun topper flags--fold in half twice then hot glue to a toothpick. Simple.
Banners are a great way to honor the mommy-to-be (or birthday kid). With this banner, I measured and then cut my 12x12 paper into rectangles then snipped the bottom to make it look like a flag and hot glued it on thick yarn. For the letters, I used a stencil. Or you can free hand it.
Cut more 1/2 inch strips of paper for serving cups and then made decorative windmills from 6x6 inch paper that I cut down from the 12x12 inch paper.
Tiny baby food jars make really great favors! Fill it with candy or in this example I used flowers. Clean the jar then paint the bottom with craft paint. Let it dry upside down. I used an alphabet stamp for the thank you tag that I stamped on the remains of the paper I was using. I used a 1.5" flower punch then I stamped and attached with some kraft ribbon.
