These button cupcake toppers and shortbread cookies are so colorful and fun together!
Making the button cupcake toppers is easy once you choose colors you like together.
The button cookies have contrast-color icing dots for holes.

1. Mix your colors and choose buttons and felt combinations you like. Cut out circles of felt larger than your buttons, using either scissors or pinking shears, and match each one to a button.

  I chose bright colors for my toppers.

2. Glue the buttons down with craft glue and let them set for about half an hour.

  Let the glue dry completely before using your toppers.

3. Now flip them over and glue toothpicks to the backs with a generous dab of craft glue. Let them dry completely before adorning your cupcakes!

  The finished toppers are ready to go!

We could have button cookies for treats, swap buttons, make quicky button crafts. I think it would be oodles of fun.
