Photo Cupcake Toppers
Featured in Martha Stewart’s Encyclopedia of Crafts I found cute little cupcake toppers made from a photo and colorful paper. I decided to make some for a party and everyone loved them. My mother in law even used hers as a hair accessory after she removed it from the cupcake. The toppers are easy to assemble and make a bold statement (win win!)
There are probably a few ways to make them. All I did was order a sheet of stickers from Costco for $2.99 and attach them on scrapbooking paper for the backing.
- Card stock
- Diamond brand Bamboo Forks
- hot glue gun
First I ordered my photo stickers and waited for them to come in the mail. You can also print photos on your home printer if you are in a hurry.
I selected a couple of complementary papers and made measurements. Measure your photo first, then on the back of your paper mark out where you want to make cuts. I used to papers behind my photo. I added a quarter of an inch to my white and gold paper to leave a border. Cut your measurements with a cutting board or scissors.
I had scrap gold paper left over from a earlier project that was very close to the size I needed. I attached the stickers in the middle and trimmed up the sides.
Use scrapbooking tape or a glue stick to put all the papers together.
I threw in a few cards with a monogram on them. I cut a white paper the same size as the gold and used a monogram stamp.
These would be great for an engagement party or anniversaries too!
