I’m a huge fan of a few different things in my life (Valentine’s Day, paper crafting, and sweet treats – just to name a few), so when I get the chance to combine those three loves in to one awesome project that was actually super simple to put together, I couldn’t be happier. These DIY cupcake toppers pack a pretty visual punch without the hassle of a super intense craft project so anyone can re-create these babies!
- Cricut Explore or Alphabet Stickers
- Sizzix Texture Embossing Machine
- Mini Heart Embossing Folder
- Red and White Cardstock
- 2 inch Circle Punch
- Tombow Tape Runner
- Aleene’s Quick Dry Tacky Glue
- Candy Sticks
Step One. To create the XO letters for the cupcake topper, you can choose from two different options: cut them with a Cricut or use alphabet stickers. I chose to use my Cricut so I could make a higher quantity of cupcake toppers and simply used a cursive font in Design Space. If you use the alphabet stickers, you’ll likely have enough of the X’s and O’s to create three to four cupcake toppers.
