LETS GET STARTED!!!
You can find the link to the design space project HERE
Open up the design in Cricut Design Space using the link above. Start cutting your paper as prompted by design space. After you click make it, change the copies for as many cupcake toppers you need. There are 2 of each design so multiply it by 4 for your quantity. I wanted 12 so I did 3 copies.
Cut each color out. Weed out the little pieces out while the other sheets are cutting. Most of them should just fall right out. You made need to just poke them out quickly.
Once you have all your pieces cut, let’s get to the assembly!
Using the Zigg GLue pen. Color the dark pink one where the lips go and add the lips on top. Then glue those 2 pieces onto the red Glitter piece lining them up.
Adding the toothpicks is so easy! I like to use Glue dots. Just roll the toothpick on the glue dot and center it on the XOXO design.
The hearts are done in the same fashion. The hearts have 2 different slits. One on the top and one on the bottom fit the 2 together to make a 3D heart! add the toothpick just as you did for the XOXO put it on the backside it will hold the red and the pink hearts together!
Should we make some cupcakes?!! Here is what you will need, The list of materials needed for these also is above at the top of the post.
Bake however many cupcakes you need. You can do any flavor. Make or purchase some white frosting.
Insert the piping tips into the bags, add frosting. See video below for the decorating process!
Add the cupcake toppers to your finished cupcakes and enjoy!
