You will need:
+ cardstock (felt, fabric or wide ribbon would be fun, too!)
+ stamps + ink (optional)
+ twine/string/ribbon (the thinner the better for small dessert toppers)
+ wooden skewers (check your local market!)
+ sewing needle (preferably one with a large eye to accommodate twine/string/ribbon)
2. If you're going to add any embellishments, like stamps, now's the time to do it (and if you do stamp, allow ink to dry completely).
3. With a needle (or a really mini hole punch), prick the corners of your flags so your needle has somewhere to go.
4. With a lot of extra slack, thread your needle and start 'sewing' your flags together. You will figure out what style you like, whether the thread crosses across or behind the flags. A lot of this is trial and error. I messed this up about 18 times before I got it right.
6. Voila. Cake topped.
And now, I'd like a slice (of that Susie Cakes vanilla celebration cake, to be exact). Happy June weekend, all!
