I’d like to share some cupcake toppers that I made for my son’s birthday party. This was my first time making these and I had so much fun! They are so quick to make and you can do them so many different ways.
The hardest decision I had was selecting the final size I wanted for the circle, two inches or 2 1/2. I settled on 2 inches because I knew that they wouldn’t be too big for the cupcakes. We were having regular size cupcakes and I didn’t want the toppers to take away from the actual cupcake.
Cupcake toppers can easily be made with extra scraps of paper. I was thrilled to have a use for the leftover stuff from the banner. I had more than enough paper choices because I just needed 2 inch circles.
I used 7 of my favorite color schemes (9 patterns) from the patterns seen in the banner so that the designs would vary. For the text that’s on the white paper I used Word and created a template. I added a circle shape to the document and then defined the size of the circle, adding a border that’s slightly smaller than the punch allowed me to have the blue outline around the outside. Having the blue line makes it super easy to know where to line it up inside the punch.
Next up I’ll share more colorful party decorations…..you can see a HINT below in this picture!
