Birthday LadyBugs

Sunshine turned 10!  Yes I said 10!  I love my babies and want them to grow and become wonderful adults.  I just wish they would grow a little slower.  Sunshine wanted me to make cupcakes for her class which I have managed to get out of every year so far.  We wanted to make them a little special so we made Lady Bug Cupcake toppers.
I found these Sandwich Toothpicks at the Dollar tree.

We used my Sizzix to cut out the two bigger size circles we needed and then my paper hole punch for the spots on the backs of the lady bugs.

We cut the smaller circles in half to use for the heads.

then we added the spots to the back.

Sunshine decided she wanted 6 dots on the backs and also a line.  So we just used  a black sharpie for the line.
we ran out of red paper so we used yellow as well.  When we were done decorating the lady bugs we added the stick and used another circle of paper to cover it on the backside.

the cupcakes went from this to 

 She had such a good time putting these toppers together.
Another project completed successfully.

Happy Crafting!
