Valentine Cupcake Toppers + giveaway!

Nothing says “I love you” like a cupcake… and nothing says “I really, REALLY love you!” like these cupcake toppers! Aren’t they just the cutest? Paige Evans, from our design team, made these and when she sent me the photos I just shrieked with joy!
They are just so cute and I love how big the toppers are, it’s like an edible present!
And, I love how each one is different! So much fun πŸ™‚
I just love it all! Even the Cherry Chip cupcake’s have red in them to match the tags! Eek!!!

Paige used her Cuttlebug die cut machine and Nestabilities heart dies by Spellbinders (scalloped and regular) with our mini papers and matching bazzill paper. She cut a scalloped heart, then a regular heart and adhered them together with foam dots for extra dimension. They she added a sentiment to the front of each heart (sentiment from either our journaling spots, circle tags or cut outs). To finish it off, she then added a big ribbon bow for extra cuteness and a toothpick glued to the back so you can stick it into the cupcake!

So much fun and such an amazing presentation! Can you imagine bringing these into school, work or delivering them to someone special?
We’ve put together this special kit (pictured above), that includes all the Elle’s Studio items Paige used to create these, and MORE! This Valentine kit would be perfect for making these toppers, cards and mini albums, too! And, don’t forget about the other Valentine items are available in the same line!
