Minnie Mouse Inspired Cupcake Toppers

Happy Friday!

This weekend my niece is celebrating her 2nd birthday!  She adores Minnie Mouse so my sister is having a birthday party completely Minnie inspired!  I LOVE themes and tend to run a bit wild when given the opportunity to participate in one so I offered to make the cupcake toppers.  These are what I came up with - I think they turned out pretty sweet, don't you?  Here's how I made each one of them, in case your theme crazy too!


Stamps: N/A
Cardstock: Basic Black, Strawberry Slush, Melon Mambo DSP Stack
Ink: N/A
Punches: 1/2" circle, 3/4" circle, Small Oval, Large Oval, 1 1/4" Circle, Owl, Pennant, Heart to Heart (retired - but could be substituted with the Heart punch)
Accessories: White Chalk Marker, Multi-purpose glue, Crystal Effects, Toothpicks

For the Minnie Mouse Silhouettes
  • Punch 1 - 1 1/4" circle from Basic Black
  • Punch 2 - 3/4" circles from Basic Black, glue onto larger circle with Multi-purpose glue
  • Punch 2 - hearts from either the Heart to Heart punch or the heart found in the Owl punch from Melon Mambo DSP, glue below left ear with the tips of the hearts touching
  • Punch 1 medium sized circle from the Owl punch in Melon Mambo DSP and glue between the 2 hearts to create a bow
  • Glue a toothpick to the back of the head using Crystal Effects

For the Bows
  • Punch 2 - medium hearts from the Heart to Heart punch from Strawberry Slush cardstock
  • Punch 1 - 1/2" circle from Strawberry Slush cardstock.  Glue the hearts to meet behind the circle
  • Add random dots using a White Chalk marker
  • Glue a toothpick to the back of the bow with Crystal Effects

For the Purses

  • Punch 1 Scalloped Pennant from the Pennant punch in Melon Mambo DSP.  Fold the upper portion of the pennant downwards and glue into place
  • Punch 1 of the smallest circles in the Owl punch from Basic Black.  Glue near the bottom of the purse flap
  • Punch out a handle by first punching a small oval from Basic Black.  Realign punch and move slightly upwards on the cardstock.  Punch again to create handle.  Glue to back of the purse.
  • Glue a toothpick to the back of the bow with Crystal Effects

    For the Shoe
    • Print out provided shoe template.  Transfer larger portion of the shoe template to Strawberry Slush cardstock and cut out
    • Transfer smaller portion of the shoe template to Basic Black cardstock and cut out.  Glue in place onto larger piece.  Add a small highlight with a White Chalk marker.
    • Glue a toothpick to the back of the bow with Crystal Effects

    And just in case you might need a card to go along with these cute little cupcake toppers, be sure to check out my Mickey & Minnie Inspired Shoe Cards!

    Have a great weekend!  I'll see you back here next week!
