Inauguration cupcake toppers

Here are some simple cupcake toppers you can make to celebrate the upcoming Presidential Inauguration.

 

All you need:

1.  wooden picks, or toothpicks

2. a large circle punch (1 3/4 ” to 2″)

3. scissors

4. a glue-stick.

Here are the templates you can use:

Printable Obama Cupcake Toppers and Stickers
Printable Inaugural Circle Cupcake Toppers
Printable Inaugural Flag Cupcake Toppers

Instructions:

Download a cupcake topper PDF and print on card-stock. Center the image in the punch and cut. The large open bottom of this circle punch makes it really easy!

Place glue on the backs of the circles and sandwich a wooden pick in between two circles.

For the triangle flags fold in half, cover inside with glue and place a wooden pick in the fold.

These cupcake toppers even make great stickers for party favors. Print the toppers on 1-up sticker paper (it’s a solid sheet available at copy shops). Add a ribbon and the sticker to a miniature Chinese take out box and you have a festive party favor for your Inauguration celebration.

I love the print-outs. I’m going to use them in my classroom tomorrow to celebrate the inauguration instead of on cupcakes.
