The first round of cupcake topper making was so much fun, we just had to do it again!

This time, you are invited to create one set of flat, Halloween-themed cupcake toppers (not 3D so we can keep our postage down by mailing in a regular envelope) with one dozen toppers.

This swap will be sender's choice, but it might be nice to have a look through your partner's bio and see what kinds of things he or she might enjoy. The toppers can be of your own original design or from any of the free downloadable templates floating out there, just as long as you credit any sources you might have used.

Halloween is a pretty broad theme, but please do not send anything too scary or grotesque that might be offensive to your partner.

Toppers must be:

  • made of cardstock, clay, or any other sturdy material.
  • neatly made and of good quality
  • well-packaged so everything arrives in one piece. Remember, toothpicks can be fragile.

Please note: it's probably best to stay away from glitter or anything that might flake off easily, since these are meant to be used with edibles.

This should be a quick and inexpensive craft using materials you probably have around your home. If you need help on making toppers, check out this easy tutorial.

You can also see some of the toppers from our previous swap if you need some inspiration.

You will have two weeks to make and send your toppers, and you should receive your own set from your partner just in time for to make your Halloween cupcakes extra fancy!

All the usual disclaimers: Please do not join if you don't plan on following through. If you are delayed for any reason, make sure to clearly communicate with your partner and with me. This swap is open to everyone with a very, very well-rounded profile, but those who seem risky will be deleted. And please--remember to rate your partner promptly when you get your package of goodies. Have fun!

I am watching, hoping my swaps have cleared by the sign up date =D Thank you for the invite ;-) It would be awesome to have a group for this craft =D

Hope you can join, Wynd! I've had a few people ask about a group...I've given it some thought, and I might do it if I have at least a couple of officers to help host. :) Let's see how this one goes!

BlackWolf 09/16/2010 #

I've joined! I love this idea, and plan to make some this weekend as practice =D

I'd love a group ;-) If you ever make one and need some helpers, I'd be delighted to help out =)

I am very sorry that I can not participate this round =( Our payday was messed up, so I won't have enough postage. But, I will gladly join ones later on =D

I am working on these now. So do all 12 have to be exactly the same?

I put my package in the mailbox today, but I don't think it'll be picked up until tomorrow... hopefully it will arrive quickly! :)

this was a fun swap!

Same here. Yesterday was a federal holiday so there was no postal service. I told my partner about it.
