Other Uses For White Paper: Cupcake Toppers

In Random Recast, we find other uses for ordinary things. This week, it's all about turning plain white paper into something a little more stylish. Such as...these adorable cupcake toppers.

To make them, you'll need a specialty paper punch—we used Martha Stewart's Deep Edge Punch in Double Loop Weave. Make two punches on a 1 1/2"-wide piece of paper, spacing the punches 1/8" apart. Next, apply a thin line of glue between the two punched designs. Place a toothpick on top of the glue, then fold the two punched-designs together, creating a flag. Cut away any excess paper.
