How to Make Frou Frou Cupcake Toppers

These are some cupcake toppers that I made for a recent birthday party.  They are SUPER easy and were a huge success.  I saw all the ladies leaving with them in their purses.  :)

Here are some quick directions, along with the JPEG sheet I made, if you'd like to make some for your next party.

Supplies needed:

*glue gun
*collage images
*glitter paint
*craft ribbon (I found some in the wrapping paper section at Michaels)
*card stock
*lollipop sticks (can be found in the chocolate making section of the craft store)


I first cut each image out and added glitter glue and a rhinestone to each gown.

Then, I accordion folded the craft ribbon and glued it to the back of each image (this is the most time consuming of the entire process.  You have to go slow when gluing around the back edge.)

I cut squares out of card stock with my Cricut and glued them to the back so that the piece would be sturdy.  Finally, I added some glue inside one of the bottom folds and inserted the stick.  Easy as pie!

This is a great craft because there are so many variations you can use.  Find your favorite digital collage or image and you can create any themed party you want!

For more fun JPEG images, please be sure to stop by my Collage Crazy Etsy shop and happy crafting!
