Easy 3-D St. Patrick's Cupcake Toppers from any Graphic!

St. Patrick's Day is a time to celebrate, eat, and make everything green and fun. Liven up your cupcakes with these adorable 3-D toppers!

You can use pretty much any graphic or cut it, but since I'm totally in love with the new Kiss Me I'm Irish Collection, there was no other option for me! You want to begin by laying out the images you want to print and cut. Every program is different, but essentially you will need 4 images for each topper, with 2 images being a mirror image of the others:

Go ahead and print and cut out, then you will want to score them each in half. I used my bone folder and board. It went super fast, and I did it by laying two on top of each other front to back, scoring both sides. When the two were done, I would lay the 3rd on one of the first two, and repeat the process and so forth.

You will then glue together the corresponding sides:

And continue to glue until all four pieces are attached together to make one topper:

Push a toothpick through the bottom, and your done!
