st-patricks-day-toppersThese 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.

cucpcake wrappers and toppers e-bookTo 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.)

Valentine heart  wineglass lampshade and cupcake toppers

Here’s a bit of fun for those who want to do something different to decorate for Valentine’s Day — a free wineglass lampshade! It’s a great way to spruce up for the holiday, even if you’re on a budget. Here are the steps to make it:

  1. Download the template artwork (see the link below)
  2. Print the template on card stock or paper
  3. Cut around the lampshade shape
  4. Glue or tape the back so ti forms a circle
  5. Place on the top of a wineglass
  6. Use some clear Museum Gel or something similar at the back of the lampshade to hold it to the glass (optional)

I used a clear wineglass, but for extra fun, you can use one with some color.

To make sure I didn’t burn the house down by getting a flame in touch with the paper shade, I used an extremely inexpensive LED tea light (three for $1 at the dollar store) instead of a candle. I strongly suggest you do the same. It’s not worth the risk to use a candle. And you get 60 hours out of one LED tea light, so you can use it plenty of times before it burns out.

cucpcake wrappers and toppers e-bookAs you can see from the photo, this lampshade design also has matching valentine heart cupcake toppers, and pink polka dot and heart wrappers, which are available in my new Printable Year-Round Cupcake Toppers and Wrappers Kindle e-book. For $2.99 you get the topper and two different wrapper designs shown here, plus 16 other seasonal toppers (Christmas, Hanukkah, Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, winter, summer, spring, fall and eight more), plus 41 other wrappers. It’s a ridiculously good deal that will give you toppers and wrappers for almost any seasonal occasion throughout the year.

The book contains all the printable files and instructions you’ll need to be creative all year! And don’t worry if you don’t have a Kindle or even any kind of tablet. You can use the FREE Kindle for PC or Kindle  for Mac app to view the book on any printer. Those apps also will allow you to view any Kindle book, not just mine.

Princess Cupcake Picks

Send to Kindle

Click on the link to the free printable princess party cupcake pick template below to enlarge and download it.

Quinceanera princessesThese three little princesses can serve quite a few purposes. You can use them all together on cupcakes for a little girl’s party. Or you can pair the one that looks like Cinderella with the Cinderella invitation from one of my other sites. Or you can choose the one that most looks like the birthday girl and use it for a Quinceanera celebration.

Each princess has “Pretty as a princess” written in flowing script on her skirt. Cinderella has long flowing blonde hair and is dressed all in pink. The beautiful African American princess has her hair up in a sophisticated bun is in almond, green and purple with flowers at her waist and the brunette princess is also in pink, with a blue flower on her bodice. All are wearing princess crowns.

Three designs of princess cupcake toppersTo make these, you’ll need sharp scissors to cut around the faint gray lines. (I use tiny manicure scissors with curved blades but you can use whatever works best for you.) This will leave a white border around each princess. If you prefer not to have the border, you can cut around the images themselves. I warn you, though, there will be a lot of tiny edges and curves to cut. That’s why I used the white borders: to keep you from cursing my name as you cut around little pieces of hair!

Once they’re cut, you can make toppers out of them by using a small vertical line of glue from the bottom to about halfway up the back. Then, just lay a toothpick or party pick (slightly larger than a toothpick) into the glue, make sure it’s straight up and down, and then let it dry. You can also decorate them with glitter glue, rhinestones and faux pearls. If you use glitter or glitter glue, though, make sure to use a coat of clear glue (I recommend Emer’s school glue) over the glitter, so it won’t fall onto the cupcakes.
