DIY tissue paper and fringe cupcake toppers

We are working on a really beautiful gold and creme themed baby shower that will take place this weekend. We are really excited to see how it all comes together. One of the diy projects we are working on is a creme colored tissue paper flower with a gold fringe center! We obviously love making paper flowers, and these are so easy to make and look so pretty on top of your cupcakes!


tissue paper

gold fabric or ribbon

lollipop sticks

hot glue


hole punch

We are topping mini cupcakes, so we cut mini circles our of our tissue paper, about 2". If you are making them for regular sized cupcakes you can cut your circles larger. Just layer your tissue paper and cut out circles...don't worry about them being perfect, the more imperfect you cut cut the more shapely the flower. You are going to use about 6 circles per cupcake topper. Punch a hole in the center of the layered tissue paper.
Cut a 1" strip of your gold ribbon or fabric {we found a spool of this thick gold ribbon in the dollar bin at Jo Anne Fabrics}. Roll the ribbon and hot glue the bottom of it together. Then just cut strips taking care you don't cut all the way to the bottom, you just want to create a fringed look.
Next add a dab of hot glue to the top of your lollipop stick and slide your 6 layers of tissue paper on. {Exactly like our diy ombre flower cupcake toppers} Then add another dab of glue in the center of your flower and add your fringe piece. Immediately close the top layer of tissue around the fringe so that it attaches. Then just continue to bunch your tissue paper layer by layer.
It's that simple! Hope you will try these, they would look beautiful in any color...especially with spring approaching!!
