Although we usually only prepare Valentine's Day goodies for the boys' classmates and teachers, this year I also wanted to pass along some Valentine's Day love to friends. My oven only likes to broil (fixing it is on my to do list!) so I haven't baked anything in a long time, but fortunately we have a local cupcake shop that makes red velvet cupcakes. The cupcakes come adorned with a sweet little red heart and I thought adding a simple cupcake topper would be cute. The great thing about these toppers is you can add them to any baked good or even use them to decorate a Valentine's Day gift as a gift topper like I did here. You can also use the toppers as stickers to wrap around a box or bag. The possibilities are endless!


1. 8.5" x 11" sheet of white sticker paper

2. X-Acto knife

3. Cutting mat

4. Ruler

5. Toothpick


1. Download Valentine's Day Cupcake Topper printable here.

2. Print Valentine's Day Cupcake Topper printable on to white sticker paper.

3. Cut out a cupcake topper using a X-Acto knife, ruler, and cutting mat.

4. Peel off the backing from the sticker paper. Place toothpick in center of cupcake topper and wrap cupcake topper around toothpick, pressing the sides together to seal it.
