DIY Mini Rosette Cupcake Stands

We have been having so much fun filling orders for our rosette lollipops! But, there are always so many left over paper scraps and we just knew there had to be something that we could create out of them! So...we came up with mini rosette cupcake stands!! They are so easy to make, festive and perfect to display your mini cupcakes, bon bons or other mini treats!


2 strips of 1" decorative card stock for rosette (we used 12" paper so the strip is 1" in width and 12" in length)

1" width 3" length strip of decorative card stock for stand

glue gun


1" circle paper punch

Take your 2 strips of 1" card stock and accordion style fold them. Then glue the end of one of the strips to the end of the other strip, then glue the other ends together to form a circle. Fold the circle inward and bring center together to form a rosette, turn the rosette over (to show the bottom of the paper) and glue a punched out circle of paper (use your paper punch) to secure the rosette in place. Turn the rosette over to show the decorative paper and glue another circle on top. Take the paper for your stand and just wrap it around and hot it glue it to secure it closed. Then just put some hot glue around the top of the stand and glue/secure it to your rosette! (Make sure your seam from your stand is in the back).

Pinterest directed me to your site for the candy cane toppers. It said you heat up the canes and reshape them to make the cute curls. Did you do these yourself? I've seen ones that look like this at Target, I was just trying to find a cheaper way of making them if possible. I would appreciate any info!

Here are some of the instruction from the pre posted site about shaping candy canes:

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees F (120 C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon liner.

Unwrap large candy canes and place them on the baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 250 degrees.

Remove baking sheet from oven, and use a spatula to lift the warm candy cane off the tray. Gently form it into the shape you want. (You can cut it with kitchen shears if it is not the size you want) Set newly formed canes aside to cool and continue with remaining warmed candy canes.

If they become too difficult to shape, return them to the oven for a few additional minutes to soften.

To fuse two candy canes together, either press them firmly together when they are just out of the oven, or overlap them at the point where you want to fuse them and place them in the oven for several minutes.

If you want to use your Candy Cane Shapes as Christmas ornaments, use a small sharp nail or toothpick to poke a small hole in the candy canes when they are very warm. Once cool, thread them with fishing wire or thread to hang.
