Free Vintage Halloween Printables: Cute & Spooky Cupcake Toppers

October 13, 2012

Sometime over the past year I decided to stop making and selling cupcake picks in my Etsy Shop. They weren’t fitting in with my brand anymore, so it was just time to move on. They really are super cute, though, and I feel like all my design files shouldn’t go to waste, just sitting on my hard drive unused.

So since Halloween is coming up, I’d like to share some FREE Vintage Halloween design files that you can use to make your own cupcake picks, or whatever other crafty project you’d like to use them for. The images come from some vintage gummed labels I have in my Halloween ephemera collection. I scanned them, cleaned them up, and set them against black & teal backgrounds.

Just click on the images below, and you’ll be taken to the pdf files that you can download. Have fun and go get your craft on! xo

Note: Since the images are 300dpi (for printing) the files are kinda big. They may take a minute or two to download.

Springtime Easter Garlands & Cupcake Toppers

February 19, 2011

I know it’s still February, but I can feel spring coming. That’s why I’ve been tapping into some springtime inspiration, and creating a few things that will will bring a little bit of sunshine & warmth your heart and your home.

Vintage-Inspired SPRING Garland

Victorian Spring Garland

Vintage Pastel Spring Garland

Available here at the Flapper Girl Boutique.

Spring is in the air! This soft and fresh color palette will brighten your home and your heart. Letter medallions featuring a Victorian typeface spell out the word SPRING. All the traditional signs of a happy springtide are here—baby chicks hatching, playful bunnies offering up colorful dyed eggs, and even a dapper rabbit taking his first spring ride on his bicycle!

Letter medallions feature hand-folded crepe fringe, pastel pink glitter, and cream colored ribbon accents. Hatching chicks feature robin’s egg blue hand-folded crepe accents.

Garland measures approx. 44″ long.

NOTE: I also have a darling variation of this garland that features slightly different illustrations and spells out EASTER. It is available here at the Flapper Girl Boutique.

Vintage-Inspired Wedding Cupcake Toppers

Vintage Wedding Cupcake Toppers

One of the projects I’ve been working recently is a custom order of vintage-inspired wedding cupcake toppers. Here are the finished designs in an ivory/chocolate/gold colorway. I made about 90 of these babies! I love how they turned out. I especially love the photo used in the topper on the far left that features a military nurse bride.

This is the first time I’ve made cupcake toppers for a wedding, and it was really awesome to have someone approach me for a custom order of toppers for their special day.

You can’t see this in the photo, but the ivory backgrounds have delicate, elegant, vintage-inspired white patterns on them, and the chocolate backgrounds have a subtle, elegant gold-dusted finish.

These are going to decorate individual servings of pie a la mode! Doesn’t that sound lovely?

Marianne from Pennsylvania sent me this photo of her Flapper Girl Cupcake Picks in action! Today is her company picnic, and the theme is the Roaring ’20s. She’s entering these delectable-looking cupcakes into the bake-off. Good luck, Marianne! xoxo


What I’ve Been Working On

July 23, 2010

Vegan Cupcake

Last week I worked on an order for Never Felt Better {Vegan Shop} in Sacramento, including this batch of custom “V” vegan cupcake patches. They turned out super cute, and were totally fun to make!

This week I’ve been working nonstop on my 2010 Hallowe’en line, and I am so excited about how everything is turning out. I will be sure to post some sneak peeks of my aprons, garlands, and other little goodies next week.

Before I started this week’s hardcore sewing marathon, I loaded up on audiobooks to listen to while I work. I’m almost done with Chuck Klosterman’s Killing Yourself to Live, which I love even more than Downtown Owl. Next on the list are A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers, A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore, and Grave Sight* by Charlaine Harris.

*I need a little something to put me in a spooky mood while creating Halloween goodies, no?

Vintage Camera Garlands & Cupcake Toppers IN ACTION!

May 24, 2010

Vintage Cupcake Toppers by Flapper Girl

Joy, the super talented photographer behind Wildflowers Photography, hosted a photo workshop for parents this past weekend. Earlier in the month, she had ordered a couple vintage camera garlands and a few sets of vintage camera cupcake toppers to use at this event.

I was giddy to see that a few completely gorgeous shots of my goodies ended up on her blog, and it made me so happy to see something I put so much love and energy into being used—so beautifully, I might add—out in the real world.

I love hearing from my customers! Being a creator is such an awesome double whammy of goodness, because not only do I love making things, I also love discovering what people use my creations for.
