Tutorial: Rosette Cupcake Box Topper


Flower Cupcake Box and Wrapper Lori Barnett Watermarked

Spectrum Noir design team member Lori is here again today to share how she created this wonderful rosette topper for her cupcake box!

Crafter’s Companion supplies:



Step 1: Die-cut and emboss 2 Scallop Cupcake Wrappers.


Step 2: Accordian-fold wrappers at the score lines and burnish each fold.


Step 3: Add glue to end flap of each wrapper. Affix the 2 ends by inserting the tabs into slits. This will form a circle. Tip: The glue can be added before attaching the 2 wrappers together – or afterwards.


Step 4: Using the cut-out piece from the Cupcake Insert Die (from making the cupcake box) – apply a generous amount of hot glue.


Step 5: Affix the 2 pieces together – making sure the rosette forms the circle and lays down flat on the disk with the hot-glue. Hold the pieces together until glue cools and rosette sticks in place. TIP: The center of the rosette doesn’t need to be perfectly lined up in the center, since it will be covered with a flower.


Step 6: This is how the rosette will look.


Step 7: Die-cut and emboss flower and leaves from scrap pieces of construction cardstock that was used to make the cupcake box. Color the stems and leaves with green marker.
