Birthday Cupcake Picks

I have been looking recently at Birthday Party things for my oldest daughter who is turning 8 five days after Christmas. First of all, the sets are all so expensive and secondly she does NOT want Dora, Princess or Bratz anything so what am I supposed to do. Well, why not grab some supplies and Glue Dot® and  make her something more personal. I am going to do a matching banner with her name to take to the skating rink with us to hang up.  This one is extra sparkly for the Birthday Girl.

 Here are 6 cupcake picks for her to have in her cupcakes. (I have more don't worry)  :)

 She really likes them and my youngest daughter has already picked out the paper she wants me to use for her Birthday cupcakes in June. lol
 I didn't have any cupcakes on hand but I did have brownies! They would be cute if you used Glue Dot® Pop Up dots and attached letters of the Birthday Girl's name and stick them on a sheet cake.
Here are some quick pics on what I used to put these together. They were sooo easy and really the Birthday Girl could help assemble them.

The scalloped circles I punched were 31/2 and 2 5/16. You could use any nesting shape you want. I like the layered look and that makes it super easy. I used matching paper on mine on the front and back but you don't have to. I placed my Glue Dot® on the paper and stuck the pick on one then matched up the scallops and pressed them together. I used 3 or Glue Dots for each one. It was fast and easy. I inked all the edges and added some glitter glue. That's it. With all the beautiful and themed paper out there don't forget you can make party supplies for a fraction of the cost.
Hope you have a great day!
