DIY, Featured, Home  /   /  By Aimee Santos

With so many of my friends graduating in the next few weeks, I wanted to create a tutorial for a fun and playful gift to give them. I decided on a DIY graduation cap cupcake topper since a sweet treat is always a good idea and they are so simple to make. This will definitely make any grad smile, or be a hit at your next graduation party.
