Make wedding reception tables extra special by creating elegant cupcake wrappers and toppers using the Cricut Explore and its on-line software, Design Space.

With over 30,000 images available to choose from, you can create toppers to fit the theme. Personalise either the topper or wrapper to create unique guest favours: the Cricut Explore will write and cut and Design Space will access both Cricut and system stored fonts.

3. The wrapper image can be re-sized to fit any cupcake, either by first highlighting the image and then dragging the corner point: the size appears in a black text box as the image is altered: or applying a known measurement into the ‘Edit’ window.

4. To personalise either image with names or dates: ‘Ungroup’ the images and separate the layers. Add a text box, choosing the preferred Cricut or system font that ‘has writing style’, from the dropdown lists in the edit window.

Re-size the text to fit the image. ‘Attach’ the text to the image; highlight the whole image and select ‘attach’ from the layers window. ‘Group’ the images together.

8. Carefully glue the topper layers together using PVA glue. Then use a hot glue gun to attach the wooden sticks, sandwiching the sticks between the topper and circle. Knot a length of ribbon around the stick just beneath the topper.
