First I started with a pattern for the bodice of the dress (this will be the base of the dress). Next you cut out a skirt that will be layered on top of the bodice.
Then you take a piece of tulle (slightly larger than the skirt layer) and you attach it to the very top of the skirt with double sided tape making sure to pleat the skirt as you go.
Next you take a piece of ribbon and adhere to the top of the skirt (as seen in the picture). Then you punch a flower shape out of cardstock and attach it to the front of the skirt.
Once the skirt is all done then you can attach the popsicle stick in between the skirt layer and the bodice layer. (I discovered that it is best to adhere it with a glue gun). And there you have a beautiful cupcake topper perfect for your little one's party.
So if you happen to find that these toppers are little too difficult to make yourself (or time consuming) then I got you covered. You can always buy these pre-made in my Etsy store. Just follow the link on the side of my blog page. And for those of you who wish to make it yourself, I am also selling a digicut for the "Sure Cuts Alot" program with the patterns to make the ballerina dress in my Etsy shop for $1.50. Note: The digicut is an SVG file and will only work with the "Sure Cuts Alot Program for the Cricut machine.
Till next time
