For those of us who live in America, these flower toppers are ideal for creating patriotic cupcakes for election day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, 4th of July, Veterans Day. And they are incredibly easy to make. Just download and print the template below on the thickest paper your printer will allow and cut carefully around the outline of the shapes. Manicure scissors with curved blades are perfect for this. If you don’t have any or yours are dull, I’ve found that using a fine Emory board on the edges of any scissors will help keep them sharp enough to get around the small curves in the template with ease.

The template can be used to make flat or three-dimensional toppers or picks. You can use one on a stick by itself, multiple of the same design for one pick, or mix and match the color schemes for one pick. Because of this, the three designs in the template can be used to create lots of different looks. And adding ribbons and bows in different colors and patterns, and rhinestones and glitter can extend the variety even more.

To make the 3D versions, just fold the desired number of cut flower petals (any number from four to 10 looks good) in half. Then, use repositionable glue stick on one half of the first petal. Glue the next folded petal to it, making sure to align all the edges before the glue dries. Glue as many as you want together and then place a line of liquid glue down the center where the folded edges meet. Lay a toothpick or cocktail pick (these are longer than toothpicks) in the glue, and then use the glue stick to seal the last two petal halves in place.

To make a flat version, simply lay a cut flower on a table, face down. Draw a thin line of liquid glue (glue that’s too thick will make the card stock warp), from the bottom center of the flower to about 3/4 of the way up. Then, lay a toothpick to cocktail pick in the glue, taking care to make sure it’s not crooked. Let it sit undisturbed until the glue is almost set. You can pick it up and check it at that point to see if you need to adjust it at all before it’s finally dry.

4th of July Party Announcements

free printable July 4th artworkClick on the printable 4th of July invitation template to the right to enlarge and download it.

This free printable 4th of July invite template is as American as Mom and apple pie. It has a red, white and blue denim background and blue star studs, and it’s wrapped in a leather string, suitable for urban (or otherwise) cowboys. The lettering is made of cross stitching (thanks to KingsThingsFonts.co.uk for the creative font!), which I think fits in quite well with the denim. I hope you find it useful to invite your friends for a fun Independence Day party.

Free Patriotic Cupcake Toppers

Send to Kindle

These free patriotic cupcake topper decorations don’t have a specific holiday message, so they have many uses. The red, white and blue motifs (blue and red denim and blue and red bandana print with blue and gold star studs) make them perfect for celebrating for any American patriotic holiday, such as Memorial Day, Flag Day, Fourth of July (they match our free Fourth of July invitations) or Veterans Day. You can also use them for cowboy or Western parties or just a plain old birthday party, so they’re quite versatile.

Speaking of versatility, cupcake toppers don’t have to just be used for cupcakes. They also work as table scatters, hanging decorations, coasters or as decorations on party favor bags. You may even be able to come up with a few ideas of your own. Please feel free to share them in the comments below!
