Free Printable Valentine Cupcake Toppers

Valentine's Day cupcakessThese Valentine’s Day heart cupcake toppers are not only free and printable, they’re also really versatile. The design comes in two looks: polka dots and a modern swirl; and in two valentine colors: red and magenta. They can be created to be used as two-dimensional hearts on toothpicks or on cocktail picks (they’re slightly larger than toothpicks and, at my grocery store anyway, can usually be found in varying lengths). They can also be made as 3D toppers by just folding the hearts in half with the printed side inwards and gluing them back-to-back. That part brings even more versatility, because you can mix and match the polka dots with the swirls. And to make even more variations, you can use a variety of ribbons tied around the toothpicks beneath the hearts to dress them up!

To give you an idea of the size of these party and cupcake picks toppers, I used mini cupcakes and decorated large marshmallows to display them in the photographs. I got the mini cupcakes from Whole Foods and I created the decorated marshmallows by using cookie icing (it dries harder and more solid than cake icing) and some cute valentine nonpariels I bought from Target. I also bought a spool of Valentine’s Day ribbon from Target. It contains just enough of each ribbon design to decorate two picks.

Free Valentine's Day heart cupcake picks toppers

Here are some tips for making these valentine heart toppers:

  • Print the template, which can be downloaded below, using the heaviest card stock your printer will allow. I usually use matte card stock to make toppers but this time I used glossy. I liked the effect it gave, since these topper designs are modern.
  • For best results, use sharp, curved manicure scissors to cut out the hearts.
  • To make the 3D toppers, use a repositionable glue stick to stick the hearts together. Just fold the first of six hearts carefully (printed side in) and once it’s perfectly in half, score it with your fingernail to make a crease down the middle. Then, glue the first two pieces together and do the same with the two other sets. Let these dry, because repositionable glue takes a while to set. When these are dry, you can glue them together, leaving one panel open so you can insert the toothpick. Once you do, run a line of regular glue down the center, so the toothpick won’t slip out later. When that’s completed you can glue the last piece in place.

I’m a bit of a fanatic about Victorian and vintage images, especially when they involve flowers, so I just love this blank 5″ x 7″ printable vintage template. It has plenty of colorful Victorian flower images, plus a blue butterfly and a very graceful magical fairy. There are also very subtle ivory tone-on-tone stripes in the background, which provide a neutral pattern that unifies all that rich color.

This design can be used for birthdays, anniversaries, bridal showers and engagement parties, bon voyage and retirement parties and so on, but because it’s blank, it could also be used for a vintage-look wedding or commitment ceremony. (I also designed another Victorian-inspired vintage wedding announcement, which is posted on this blog.) You could also fold it in half and print on the inside to use it as a folding thank you or response card, or you could reduce it for use as table place cards.

This free square format butterfly invitation has a blue striped background, and is filled with a riot of colorful flowers and seven butterflies that came to visit them. I left the variety of party out of the text when I wrote the heading, so it only reads, “You’re invited to a party!” That makes the invitation suitable for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, garden parties, housewarmings and many other occasions.
