Halloween is coming and that means we will be having the first classroom party of the school year soon. Cupcakes are the must-haves in any parties and today's tutorial will help you to dress them up quickly. I'm going to show you how you can use Silhouette Studio to print-and-cut cupcake toppers quickly.
To follow this tutorial, you will need:
- Jin's template for 2" cupcake toppers. I have made this as a free download and you can find the link at the end of this post.
- graphics designed for cupcake toppers. For this tutorial I am using Lettering Delights' Halloween Town Party Printables (only $1 during the Monster Sale!)
Even though I am not using any SVGs in this tutorial, you will need Silhouette Studio Designer Edition to follow along. The reason is explained in my YouTube video below.
Now let's get on with the tutorial:
After downloading the template, just open the file in Silhouette Studio.
Locate your graphics and drag-and-drop to fill the template and you are ready to print-and-cut.
Seriously, that's it!
I have designed the template so that twelve 2" cupcake toppers fit on a letter-size page. There is no tracing required as all the cutting lines are already in place. There is also no need to resize the graphics because the template is designed for 2" toppers. You also don't have to open the Cut Style window to turn on the cutting lines because the cutting lines on the template are already set to cut.
Once you have filled the page, just click on the Send to Silhouette button and follow the instructions to print, and then cut!
I hope that my template and tutorial will make it easier for you to get your cupcakes party-ready. You can also use these cupcake toppers to dress up your treat bags or even make stickers. Just print-and-cut on sticker (or adhesive-backed paper).
