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.

Top Tip!

For a standard cupcake (not muffin), size the width to approximately 8 inch.

4. To personalise either image with a name: ‘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.

5. Re-size the topper image.

6. Select ‘Insert shapes’ and choose ‘Circle’. Re-size the circle to fit the back of the topper.

7. Cut the images from the various shades of cardstock as required. Use the ‘project copies’ window in the preview screen to cut multiple projects.

Top Tip!

Use the scraper tool to apply the cardstock to the cutting mat to ensure good contact and no air bubbles. Use the spatula tool to carefully remove the cut images, minimising damage to both the image and the cutting mat.

8. Carefully glue the topper layers together using PVA glue. Then use a hot glue gun and glue sticks to attach them to wooden sticks, sandwiching the sticks between the topper and circle.

9. Gently curl the wrappers round and slide the hook end into the slot end, fill with a delicious cupcake and add the topper. Enjoy!
