Make a pretty DIY paper flower cake topper using rubber stamps.
I’ve been on a rubber stamp crafting kick lately and today I’m sharing a fun and easy party craft. I’m going to show you step-by-step how to make a pretty stamped flower cake topper. I love the sketched style detail of the flower stamp I used and it made it really easy to coordinate all of the party decor. I also made paper party hats, a banner, stamped wooden utensils and cute water bottle covers to match.
Would you like to see just how to make the cake topper? The full written tutorial is below or scroll to the bottom of this post for the video tutorial.
- Floral Essence Stamp Set
- Stampin’ Up! Ink Pads (Flirty Flamingo, Crushed Curry, Petal Pink, Old Olive, Blackberry Bliss, So Saffron, Balmy Blue, Mossy Meadow)
- Perrenial Flower Punch
- Perennial Essence Floral Centers
- Glue Dots
- Snail Adhesive
- Simply Shammy (Stamp Cleaner)
- Clear Stamp Block D
- White Cardstock
- Bamboo Skewers
Step 1: Begin by stamping the flower petal images onto a piece of smooth cardstock. You will need two sets of petals for each flower you plan to make. I filled an entire sheet of cardstock with flower petals in all different colors. Be sure to thoroughly clean your stamp before switching colors.
Step 2: Use the coordinating paper punch to cut out the flower petals. To reach some of the flower petals in the center of the page, you may need to use scissors to trim away the excess paper.
Step 3: Use a pencil to lightly curl the petal edges. Layer two sets of petals together with the petals offset to make a full flower shape and attach them together with snail adhesive. Add a floral center to some or all of the flowers.
Step 4: Adhere the finished flowers to bamboo skewers using glue dots.
On the day of the party, simply arrange the skewers on top of the cake and poke them into place.
This is such a fun, easy and whimsical touch for a tea party, birthday party or even a garden wedding, don’t you think?
