DIY: Baby Shower Cupcake Toppers

Cupcake toppers are a great way to dress up a plain ol’ cupcake, whether it’s for a baby shower or birthday. I can’t tell you how easy they are to make, especially for someone like me that’s not crafty at all. Here’s a quick DIY on these “Little Man” themed cupcake toppers I made myself for my baby shower. They helped tie my overall theme and got several compliments throughout the day.

  • What You’ll Need: 1 of 8
    -Lollipop Sticks -Cardstock Paper (65 pounds or above works..that's the thickness of the paper) -Scissors -Gift Wrap Tape -Paper Punch (I used an X-Large Easy Squeeze Punch from Fiskars in a scalloped shape) -"Little Man" Cupcake Topper Printables (I made these myself using Photoshop. You can also find Etsy vendors that sell them.)
  • Step 1. 2 of 8
    Start by printing out the cupcake topper printables and cut them into squares. You can also cut them into columns to make it easier when using your punch to cut out the shape.
  • Step 2. 3 of 8
    Make sure the graphic is aligned in the center and slowy punch your shape out. They have punches in all different shapes and sizes. I liked the scalloped look, but they also have circles, hearts..etc.
  • Step 3. 4 of 8
    They should look something like this.
  • Step 4. 5 of 8
    Now that you have your shape, grab your lollipop stick and place the paper faced down on the table.
  • Step 5. 6 of 8
    Grab a small piece of gift wrapping tape (not too big so it doesn't go off the paper) and press firmly to secure the paper to the lollipop stick. Instead of gift wrapping tape you can also buy white circle label stickers at any office supply store.
  • Step 6. 7 of 8
    There you have...you've made your own cupcake topper!
