Fall-themed Toppers

Fall Leaves Cupcake Picks

Create these cupcake picks by choosing an earthy colored scrap book paper for the background. Select fall-themed stickers in orange, golden yellow, brown or olive green. Depending on the size of your stickers you may use a 1-1/2" or 2" round punch.

Valentine Toppers

Heart Cupcake Picks

You can easily find heart shaped punches, but a die-cutting machine works equally well here. Cut out the hearts in whatever size you need and attach the toothpicks on the back. You can vary the colors to match any theme. This design would also work well for engagement party cupcakes or a bridal shower.

Red Valentine Heart Toppers

To make this design, cut four hearts the same size from red scrapbook paper. (If you make a template, this step is much easier.) Next, fold each heart in half and glue them to one another using a glue stick. You can change the size of the hearts making them larger or smaller. Insert a bamboo skewer in the center of the glued hearts and place them on your cupcake.

Patriotic Toppers

Patriotic Pinwheel Picks

What could be more fun than these festive pin wheels in patriotic colors. What you’ll need to create these toppers is scrapbook printed on both sides, white sparkly brads and small 4” lollipop sticks. Follow the directions for making our fun pinwheel toppers using patriotic-patterned scrapbook paper. Fasten flaps of the pinwheel in place with your sparkly brads and attach to lollipop stick to the back of the pinwheel with a drop of glue from a glue gun.
