This free printable New Years Eve decoration template can be used as cupcake toppers, envelope seals, banners (when strung together with ribbon or beading cord) or lots of other uses. As you can see, I used them on cupcakes. The cupcakes are miniature-sized, so they make the 2″ toppers look bigger than they would on normal or large sized cupcakes.
These New Year party circles feature bright pink and yellow-orange polka dots and a celebratory mouse in a bow tie and top hat. There are three versions of the same design in this template: “Happy New Year!, “Welcome 2012!” and “Welcome 2013!” By including 2013, I’m giving this template a little longer shelf life. But it can be used even beyond then, since six of the 12 images don’t incorporate the year.
I used my Marvy Uchida 2″ cutter to cut these out. Then, I glued the toppers to toothpicks. You can also use repositionable glue stick or double-sided tape if you want the toppers to be two-sided. Just apply the tape or glue to the back of one topper and back it with another, line them up perfectly and press firmly all around for even adhesion. You can also use Avery’s full sheet label stock, which will allow you to turn these into stickers. The stock runs through your inkjet printer just like paper. They also make a laser printer version.
