Cupcake Liner Gift Toppers

10 cupcake liners, a stapler, a pair of scissors and a few minutes are all you need to make this simple gift topper.

Flatten out and stack 10 cupcake liners - staple them together at the center. I used two different colored liners and alternated front and back.

Fold in half.

Make evenly spaced apart cuts into liners to fray the edges.

Pull apart liners and shape into a semi-circle.

Glue or tape onto box.

    I was confused at first because after stapling, folding in half and making the slits with scissors, my “bow” just laid limp so I scrunched up the liners and worked with pulling the liners apart and now it looks great! My liners really wanted to stick together.

    Thanks for sharing! My daughter’s 4th bday is on Monday and I am using these for her presents 🙂
