Bridal Shower Cupcake Toppers with my Cricut Explore

Hey crafty friends-

I was recently asked to make cupcake toppers for a family member's bridal shower. I got to have a little fun with this one. I was trying to figure out what shapes to use when my sister in law (the matron of honor) told me the bride's ring is a large blue sapphire. I instantly went to my Cricut Design Space and started looking for the perfect cut. Here is what I came up with.

The ring shape is cut from the Once Upon a Princess image set. I cut the gem from 2 shades of blue cardstock and the ring from silver glitter cardstock. The backing shape was cut from one of my Martha Stewart cake images. I inked all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I did half of the toppers in this design then mixed it up with a different shape.

This shape with the wedding dress cutout comes from the Tie the Knot image set. I cut the top layer from a blue stripe paper and a second layer in solid white glitter cardstock to layer behind the blue creating the wedding dress.I stamped the "beautiful life" sentiment in black then inked all the edges in blue distress ink.

Here is what it looked like all put together.

I think the display turned out amazing! Everyone loved the way the dessert table looked and the bride was so happy. I now have requests for cupcake toppers for a baptism and a charity bake sale. I think I may have a business here!

Thank you everyone for hopping by today. Please follow me and come back often for more inspiration.

Have a great crafty day!



  1. Beautiful, you do have a special knack for these.

  2. Cupcakes can be themed around any occasion, with the fixings or with their enrichments. For example, a veggie lover social occasion can include cupcakes made with absolutely vegan or vegetarian amicable fixings. 2048 cupcakes

  3. There's no point having beautiful handmade or manufactured jewellery and keeping it sealed away never to be worn. Wearing jewellery will mean that inevitably it will eventually need to be cleaned as various everyday things can make jewellery start to lose its lustre such as natural body oils, perfumes, soap, and cleaning products. Therefore it might be helpful to have on hand some great tips for keeping your jewellery looking as special as the day it was made. Bridal Sets
