Every year I let Valentine’s Day sneak up on me, so I’m always on the lookout for some quick “I’d planned it this way for weeks” ideas. Here’s one that I love!
Instead of adding a toothpick to this heart topper/umbrella, I’ll be using a stirring straw for mixing drinks. I keep those on hand for crafting…and parties. 😉
The topper on the left has a tab to join the ends together. The topper on the right is tab free. Glue it as desired. I’m using Glue Dots.
I added a few glue dots to the inside middle of the formed topper. Then I stuck my skinny straw onto the glue. I buy these mixed drink stirring straws from my local grocery store. Look where plastic silverware and Solo plates and cups are. You might find them there or in the wine/beer section. Use whatever you have on hand. You could even tightly roll a piece of paper and use that!
My contribution to this cupcake is the topper. The cupcake was born at a bakery. I did have a lot to do with it being eaten though…I mean, I ate the cupcake not the topper. I wasn’t THAT hungry. LOL!
