HOW TO: MAKE EASY CUPCAKE TOPPERS

Share

Cupcakes are a favorite party treat amongst children and adults. You can pick up cupcakes from the store or bake your own cupcakes at home. Want to make your cupcakes more fun? Add cupcake toppers! I found a an easy and simple way to make this versatile decoration.

With customized paper cupcake toppers, you can match different party themes and colors for any celebration.  

Not sure how to make your own paper cupcake toppers? I’ll provide you with all the details and steps to help make your cupcakes a party hit!

You Will Need:

Step 1

Download and print your cupcake toppers design. If you purchased a cupcake topper design from my Etsy shop, it is a PDF file.  You will need to use Adobe Acrobat Reader (it’s free) to download and print your design. 

Step 2

Once printed, cut along the dashed lines. I purposely put the dashed lines in place to make the cupcake toppers more accessible to the hole puncher. 

Step 3

Punch out each paper cupcake topper using the 2 inch round paper punch.   

Step 4

Place the toothpick onto the back of the paper cupcake topper and use the double-sided tape to adhere them together.

Step 5

Now peel off the other side of the tape and add another topper to make it double sided. If you don’t want your cake topper to be double-sided, you can use Washi masking tape to keep it cute.


Making paper cupcake toppers is an inexpensive way to dress up any celebration. Your children will love seeing their special theme on top of their sweet dessert. What are some of your favorite birthday themes?
