Naptime Craft: Pennant Cupcake Toppers

People, these are adorable. Adorable, and can be completed in one naptime, even if your little monkeys think “nap” means “twenty minute power charge” (AHEM, Baby Jake. Now give your mama a break!).

Here’s what I used:

  • Double-stick tape
  • Craft knife and scissors (or just scissors is fine, too)
  • Pretty paper: I used scrapbook paper I had left over from other things, but you could use wrapping paper, wall paper, construction paper… Endless options!
  • Toothpicks

Here’s what I did:

NOTE: Obviously, this isn’t the only way to do these, but it was definitely faster than other ways I’ve tried! And around here, faster is good!

  1. Cut long strips of paper a little wider than your tape.
  2. Cut a loooooong piece of tape: you want it to go the whole length of your little paper strip. Now stick that tape to your paper.
  3. Cut the long strip into shorter sections. (Mine were about 3 inches long; I eyeballed it.)
  4. Fold them in half with the toothpick in the middle. (Don’t fold them in half and then try to put the toothpick in afterwards!)
  5. Cut a little triangle out of the end of your little flag, if you like.
  6. All done! So cute! Throw a party!

Better Late than Never

Well… looks like today’s Naptime Craft is going to be tomorrow’s Naptime Craft. It’s a fun one, and one kids can help with or make on their own (but not my kids- they’re too little). I made it as part of a birthday package that went in the mail this afternoon for Mr. Conner’s 3rd birthday.

Here’s a sneak peek for you, though:

Oooooh, I see paint swatches! Check back tomorrow to see the whole enchilada.
