Supplies Needed to Make Your Own Cupcake Toppers
- Summer Cupcake Toppers Free Printable
- 2 inch Scallop Circle Punch
- 1.5 Circle Punch
- Lollipop Sticks

- Cupcake Liners
How to Make Cupcake Toppers
First, download and print the free Summer Cupcake Toppers. Use the 1.5 circle punch to punch out the images.
Next, use the awesome 2 inch Scallop Circle Punch to cut out scalloped circles. I love using bright cardstock for these summer cupcake toppers.
Adhere images to center of scalloped circles using double sided tape. I don’t know about you but I love double sided tape. It might be one of my favorite things ever! I use it for so many craft projects.
Use a small piece of double sided tape to adhere lollipop sticks to back of scalloped circles. You can also use a glue gun for this step.
Add cupcake toppers to your favorite summer cupcakes.
Now, step back and admire your fabulous fun cupcakes because they won’t last long. This will be the hard part because you’ll want to eat a cupcake at this time.
Just go ahead and eat one. I won’t tell anyone. Making cupcake toppers deserves a sweet treat and someone needs to taste test the cupcakes. Plus, you deserve one after all your hard work.
There is a new rule in our house – You can’t serve just plain cupcakes. It’s just not allowed especially when cupcake toppers are so easy to make.
Printing Free Printables
Printing on cardstock is definitely the best way to print these cupcake toppers. Regular printable paper is too thin. I also recommend using a professional printing service to get the best quality. I go to Office Depot or Staples a lot to print my printables. Most printables use a lot of ink so it may even save you money to get them professionally printed.
