Ever wondered how the paper fans/rosettes are created that I often use to decorate cupcake toppers?
You can find them in my many styled parties and I’m happy to share with you just how I make these so you can too!
Required Supplies (click on the supplies to buy these items yourself):
- Sizzix Big Shot
- Sizzix Strip Cutting Pads
- Extended Spacer Plaform
- Sizzix Die-Cut Paper Rosette
- Patterned Papers
- Double Sided Tape/Hot Glue Gun
- Lollipop Sticks
- 2″ paper punch
- Cupcake Topper Designs from Tania’s Design Studio!
Here is a great YouTube video to watch and see the assembly step by step!
Cut your patterned papers into strips. It is best to use 12″ paper strips but you can also use printed patterned papers from the party sets. The medallion die cut will be just shy of complete so I just use a circular paper punch for the that instead.
Run your die cut through the Big Shot. Start with the extended spacer on the bottom, then 1 strip cutting pad, then the die-cut face up, then the paper and lastly the 2nd strip cutting pad on top. Roll the die through the Big Shot.
Turn your rosette over and glue the medallion to the back side. You can use double sided tape, but I recommend hot glue to ensure your rosette remains study.
Add a 2″ cupcake topper to the front side of the paper rosette, again using double sided tape or hot glue. Lastly, add a lollipop stick to the back side of the paper rosette and pop your decorated cupcake topper into your cupcake!
I hope you recreate the paper rosette cupcake topper in your next party!
