Halloween: Spooky Ghost Cupcake Toppers

30 Crafty Days of Halloween

Hi! Michelle here from Michelle’s Party Plan-It! I’m excited to be sharing how to make Spooky Cupcake Toppers on 30 Crafty Days of Halloween! Halloween is my favorite holiday, I love all the decorations and it’s always fun to dress up with the kids. We celebrate every year with a Halloween party packed with sweets and treats, so I started my party planning with these fun cupcake toppers.

Once cut, ink the edges of the ghost with black ink. Set the Ghost aside.

Next, for the phrase, pick your favorite phrase from the Handwritten Halloween Thinlits set. Using the magnetic platform, place a cutting pad on the platform, a scrap of black paper, the Thinlits, and then a second cutting pad. Then pass the sandwich through the Big Shot.

Next adhere your word to the ghost and glue the ghost to a Halloween themed paper straw.
