We hope that you enjoy all of the goodies in your prize packages ... they are being mailed out this week.

I've been working on party projects for work and a few friends lately so I'm still in a party mood. Here's a simple little diy idea using tissue paper to dress up your cupcakes.

These only require a few supplies and tools - tissue paper, wood skewers, scissor and glue (I used glue dots).

1. Fold tissue paper so you can cut a few at a time. I made my strips 2" wide and the length does not really matter because you will cut them to whatever final length you wish. Mine happened to be 4" long. Make small fringes about 1.5" long as shown - with one half an inch of solid tissue along the bottom. I used long wood skewers and cut them to a size to fit my cupcakes. Since I add a lot of icing to my cupcakes - I wanted my cupcake toppers to be a little on the tall side.
2. The top of the wood skewer is attached to the bottom of the tissue paper strip using a glue dot. The skewer should be positioned below the cut fringed area of the tissue paper.
3. Roll the tissue paper along the wood skewer until you get to the end. Add another glue dot at the bottom corner and you are done.
4. The fringe will need to be "fluffed" a little so that it looks like mine.

Make these in any colours you like. Experiment with colour combinations and see what you come up with. If you make these tissue paper cupcake toppers for your party, wedding or special event, I'd love to see them! Leave me a comment below.

Have a great week.
