Directions
Prepare cupcakes as desired, or purchase store-bought. You can use a frosting bag with a star tip to pipe frosting on cupcakes and add leaf confetti sprinkles (available at the craft store).

Cut rectangles in assorted sizes from the white cardstock to make sails. Punch two holes in the rectangle, one centered at the top and one at the bottom. Insert a lollipop stick through both holes.

Cut a diamond shape from the colored paper, fold at the center and glue around the top of the lollipop stick. Insert into cupcakes.

Tip: Use the 6 inch lollipop sticks to hold two rectangles, use the 4 inch lollipop sticks for one rectangle sail.
