Sweet Pea Cupcake Toppers and Scrapbook Pages

by Linette

Do you have a sweet pea with a birthday coming up soon? My sister came up with a really cute sweet pea design for a scrapbook page she made this weekend and I thought it would make a really cute cupcake design, so I had to give it a try.

Here are the sweet pea cupcake toppers, and the sweet pea scrapbook page that inspired them.

The sweet pea topper was really easy to make.  I used an oval shape to cut out the pea pod, then cut it back the other way to make the crescent shape for the pod (about 3″ long). The peas were circles about 3/4″ diameter. Instead of making double layers for the peas, I outlined each of them with a green marker.

I used scrapbook tape to stick the peas to the pod, then glued the whole thing to a toothpick, and stuck it into the top of the iced cupcake. If you want to make it a little fancier you can make a green wrap for your cupcake.

Here’s the scrapbook page that inspired the cupcake topper, isn’t it adorable? My sister made the pea pod in her scrapbook page the same way I did the pea pod cupcake topper, but she added a second circle to the peas, just a little smaller (about 1/2″) to give them some depth.

The letters were cut with my Cricut Expression Machine, which I adore! She used a royal blue for the background, which I think coordinated nicely and made the colors really pop!

Cute, Linette! I see you made a matching sleeve for the cupcake too – to pull the look together.

Kudos to your sister for a neat scrapbooking layout. The blue and green combo is very striking.
