We are all a little batty sometimes, but as for me, it is more times than not! That is why I wanted to try bat cupcake toppers.
You remember these… the butterflies I made for my sister’s wedding cake? I will show you how I made them.
I bought this rice paper for $0.25 a sheet from my local cake supply store. I was going to trace the butterflies onto the paper, then cut them out, but I remembered I had a butterfly die cut just about the right size. “Do I dare!?! Cut edible paper on my Sizzix Bigshot? Why, of course I do!!!”
The rice paper is thicker than tissue paper and thinner than computer paper. It would probably work great with a Cricut or other similar machine.
Cut the paper down to size…
When you are ready to place the bats, you can bend their wings so they look more like a bat. There, how easy was that? Not to mention cheep!!! What a great way to add a little excitement to your next Halloween party! Now I want to try this technique for holly at Christmas. Wouldn’t that be gorgeous!?!
