The little flags I adorned the cupcakes with are ridiculously easy to make. Simply take a standard candy stick and wrap a decorative piece of washi tape around the top to create the flag shape. Easy, right?

    I use the exact same faux wood scrapbook paper as a back drop, how funny! Great minds think alike!
