On My Craft Table- Handmade Cupcake Toppers

Hello
I realize today all my projects are looking repetitive. lol I think when it comes to party themes that's the point right? If you're tired of looking at doilies and butterflies...so sorry. :) I'm pretty sure all my ideas can be switched to match your theme too, so please stay awhile!
Today, I made cupcake toppers sans cupcakes. The baby shower isn't until March but I need this head start...so I'm not stressing days before the shower. Know what I mean?
Here is what I did, I used some Spring Doilie tags, cut some fabric, cut a 1.25" circle (used illustrator to write "welcome Baby") and punched a butterfly. I used my sewing machine to layer it all.
Here is a close up. The tag is from our shop and the pattern paper is from my stash. it's old. I have no idea who made it, but it sure is pretty!
If you have any questions, please ask away. I know sometimes picture don't explain enough.
Have a wonderful Wed!
xoxo, Veronica

Thanks Martha!

Clements_diane- no, I taped the toothpick to the back. I guess I could add another doilie to cover all the mess. :)
