For this swap, you are invited to create one set of vintage Valentine-themed cupcake toppers with one dozen toppers.

"Vintage" in this case will apply to any time period of your choice during/before the 1960s. This swap is sender's choice, but it's always nice to have a look through your partner's bio and see what kinds of things he or she might enjoy.

The toppers can be of your own original design or from any of the free downloadable templates floating out there, just as long as you credit any sources you might have used. There are also tons of great vintage valentines you should be able to print and cut around for toppers if you search online or through Flickr.

Toppers must be:

  • made of cardstock, clay, fabric, or any other sturdy material.
  • neatly made and of good quality
  • have no excessive visible glue or tape (include plain backing on the other side of the toothpick/pick/etc.)
  • well-packaged so everything arrives in one piece. Remember, toothpicks can be fragile.

Since it's a sweet holiday, consider embellishments such as ribbons, lace, bits of sparkle, etc too! Please note: it's probably best to stay away from anything that might flake off easily, since these are meant to be used with edibles.

This should be a quick and inexpensive craft using materials you probably have around your home. If you need help on making toppers, check out this easy tutorial.

You can also see some of the toppers from our previous Swap-Bot swaps if you need some inspiration.

You will have 4 weeks to make and send your toppers, and you should receive your own set from your partner just in time for to make your Valentine cupcakes extra sweet and extra fancy. :)

@MommytheMaid I'm sorry about your printer! Hopefully you can join us next time...or start your own. :)

I am new to the group, but perhaps I will start my own!

Also, I am going to look through some old children books I have for crafty use, I bet there might be something in there :D I am so cupcake obsessed, in fact last night we made cupcake shaped cake pops lol
