Cupcake_Decorations_4th_JulyIt’s really not far until July 4th now and we have been having fun designing free printables, projects and tutorials for a handcrafted Independence Day. We have already shared our July 4th party invitations featuring a dip die indigo design, and a 3D paper star garland and today we continue the theme with these pretty July 4th cupcake decorations. We always use cupcake wrappers on either homemade or store bought cupcakes when we have an event or special afternoon at the studio. It is the little details like that which we feel create a super-gorgeous handmade look to an event. Handcrafting your life doesn’t have to involve hours and hours of skilled crafting on the run up to a special occasion. You can download and print these pretty wraps using the link at the end of the post. For the toppers we used our Cricut Explore to cut the star bursts, and hand cut a little blue pom to add to the festive look. If you don’t have a cutting machine, no worries as we also included the printable PDF pattern so you might cut by hand. Keep your eye on the blog for more fab July 4th projects, ideas and inspiration including yummy food recipes and more free printables. And if you add a little handcrafted love to your Independence day celebrations please do share pictures of your projects with us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter – we LOVE seeing your work! Enjoy! ~ Lia
