These cheerful St. Patrick’s Day party circles make terrific cupcake toppers, as you can see from the photo. but you can also use them to make banners, envelope seals, table scatters, or anything else your imagination can come up with.
They come in three designs: a green leprechaun hat with a gold buckle, a pot of gold with a shamrock on it and a four-leaf clover. The toppers are super simple to make. Just print them on your color printer, using a nice white card stock. If you’re not used to printing on card stock, make sure the stock you buy will work with your printer. You can usually get that information on the package, but if you don’t see it, ask at the store where you buy your paper.
Once the template is printed, just cut the circles with a circle cutter or punch. I personally use this punch but you can use any punch or cutting device you prefer. To make the picks, just tape or glue a toothpick or cocktail pick (which is slightly larger than a toothpick and available in most grocery stores) to the back. If you use glue, don’t use a lot, because it will warp the card stock.
To complete the effect and create a really polished look, I paired the circles with wrappers from my Printable Year-Round Cupcake Toppers and Wrappers e-book. As you can see in the photos, it has polka dot and herringbone designs in various shades of green, which can be paired with the circles.
The book can be used on any computer; you don’t need a Kindle, or any other kind of e-reader or tablet. Just download whichever of these FREE apps applies to you: Kindle for Windows 8, Kindle for Windows 7, Vista and XP or Kindle for Mac. (You don’t need the free app for the toppers; just for the wrappers contained in the e-book.)
