At a Ninja birthday party it’s a good idea to watch out for flying stars — looks like a few have hit our cupcakes! Inspired by the throwing stars on this Ninja Party Invitation we created these fun, origami cupcake toppers.

TO MAKE: Cut 5-inch squares from thin kraft paper. You will need two squares per star. Following this tutorial fold into an origami throwing star. Place the stars into cupcakes, making them look a bit haphazard like they were “thrown” in. Complete the look by hanging a simple knit garland made using this tutorial from nothing but a t-shirt!

A special thanks to Pear Tree Greetings for sponsoring this party. Photography and styling by Bettijo B. Hirschi and Aimée Lowry.

  2. I’d love to try this with the throwing stars made out of colored fondant so they’d be edible!
