Here then are some quick and simple Valentine's Day cupcake toppers. They're fun to play around with trying different colours and patterns too; try using old books or music sheets of your loved one's favourites.
Valentine Cupcake Toppers
You will need:
- various papers
- glue (I prefer PVA)
- cocktail sticks
- black pen
Draw the shape/s you want onto the reverse of one of the papers you've chosen. You will need to draw 2 shapes for each topper you want to make.
Step twoUse your scissors to cut out the shapes. Place the pairs of shapes 'wrong side' to 'wrong side' and make sure they match up. If one is a little bigger or a different shape just cut around them to make sure they match.
If you're making the lips or roses use a black pen to draw the details on now before you make the topper. Follow the lines in this picture.
Step threePlace one shape down flat with the 'wrong side' facing upwards. Spread a thin layer of glue all over the shape.
Step fourPlace a cocktail stick in the centre of the shape (about half way up) with the remainder of the stick coming straight down.
Step 5Take the other shape in the pair and spread a layer of glue over the 'wrong side'.
Step 6Line up the two shapes glued side to glued side and press them together. (This is where a wet glue like PVA is useful as you can move the shapes around a little to line them up).
And there you have it, a finished cupcake topper! Repeat the steps for as many toppers as you want to make.
