Super Easy Low Cost Tinkerbell Cupcake Topper Idea

by Linette

My niece was planning a birthday party for her daughter a few weeks ago, and she called me looking for advice for a cupcake or cake idea that wouldn’t cost a fortune. Her daughter is a huge Tinkerbell fan, so she really wanted to do something Tinkerbell for her, but didn’t have the budget for a professionally decorated cake.

I had some Tinkerbell stickers in my scrapbook stuff, and plenty of scrapbook paper, so I put together these super easy Tinkerbell cupcake toppers.

They only cost a few dollars to make. Here’s what we used:

  • $1.99 for a pack of 24 Tinkerbell Stickers
  • .25-30 cents each for 2 sheets of scrapbook paper ( I used leftovers from another project)
  • 24 toothpicks
  • Some star sprinkles for fairy dust
  • A cake mix and icing

I used my Cricut to cut out the scrapbook paper squares, and made them just a little larger than the stickers so they would make a boarder backdrop for the sticker. You could also cut them out with scissors, or use a straight edge cutter to cut out a couple at a time.

Then I just added the sticker, flipped them over and glued on a toothpick. We made them single sided, but you could also make them double sided if you would like.

The cupcake toppers were a big hit for my niece and her friends, and the best part is you could make these for any theme you could find a sticker for. You don’t have to pay a fortune to have your cupcakes decorated for you.

Very cute! My 3 year old is a big time Tinkerbell fan and would love to see these on her birthday cupcakes. She was even Tinkerbell for Halloween this year. ;p Now I need to find some Big Time Rush stickers for my oldest daughter, lol (she’s 6).

Susie~ If you can’t find a sticker, find an image. You can always glue it to the scrapbook paper.
