I’ve been looking for good commercial use Chanukah images for years and I finally found these cute ones by Americo. I love the cheerful, playful dreidels and the colorful dancing, singing candles on the menorah. They look like they’re having a good time, so they really convey the joy that’s inherent in Hanukkah’s Festival of Lights. You can’t see the traditional nun, gimel, he, and shin Hebrew letters that traditionally appear on the sides of the dreidel, but we don’t need to be that serious!
As I often do for my party circles I used my Marvy Uchida 2″ cutter to cut these out. Then, I glued them to toothpicks. (Please note that I’ve photographed these 2″ designs on mini-cupcakes, so that will give you an idea of their scale.) You can also use double-sided tape or glue stick if you want the toppers to have two sides. Just apply the tape or glue to the back of one topper and back it with another, pressing it firmly all around for even adhesion.
If you want to use them for other types of Hanukkah decorations, you can punch small holes in the sides of each one and either string them together by threading beading cord or the equivalent, or by tying ribbon bows between each one. You can also use these as colorful seals for treat bags or Hanukkah card envelopes. Avery makes great full sheet label stock, which you can use to create the stickers. It runs through your inkjet printer just like card stock or paper. They also make it for laser printers.
If the template above doesn’t immediately start downloading when you click on it, you can save it to your hard drive by double-clicking on it to get the largest version of the art, and then right-clicking your mouse (PC users) or control-clicking (Mac users).
