One way to add in a little floral accent to a wedding or celebration is to make flower cake toppers. They are super easy to craft and they can really elevate your event set-up! We first added the paper flower arrangement to our cake, then wrapped it with a scalloped edge cut from birch paper.

Tools & Materials

Crafting your Flowers

There are 3 different flower designs included in the download at the bottom of the post. Use the SVG file with a cutting machine, or print the PDF if you are cutting by hand. We used Cricut’s Pearl Papers for our mid-century mod color palette, and you can find a link in the Shop this Project section. Pick any color palette that matches with your specific event decor! We usually always use toothpicks for our cupcake decor, but to create more of an artsy display with our flower cake toppers we used wooden skewers. That way we could set them at different heights for visual interest. Finish off the flowers by adding a little gold bead to the centers, and the end result is like a big burst of color on the cake!
