For my 5 year old’s birthday party we decided to go with a Purplicious Dance Party theme–combining her favorite color with her favorite activity! I made some simple dance leotard & tutu cupcake toppers to help tie it all together. I was happy with how quickly these came together.
Supplies to make leotard cupcake toppers:
cupcake liners for the tutu part from any party store
tape (or glue would work too)
leotard shapes cut from cardstock
stickers or embellishments if desired
First I cut the leotards out of light pink cardstock using my Cricut Mini electronic cutter–I used a shape from “Paper Doll Dress Ups“. You could also find an image online of a ballerina or leotard and cut it out yourself if you don’t have a cutter.
Next I folded a purple and white polka dot cupcake liner in half. . .
then I cut a semi-circle out of the middle like this.
Next I slide the cupcake liner onto the tutu and secured with a little piece of tape. I also taped the lollipop stick to the back of the leotard.
SO EASY!! I love the polka dots and I love how the cupcake liners give the tutu some flair and dimension! They are the perfect shape for a tutu.
I added little sparkly butterfly stickers to the front and then stuck the leotard cupcake toppers into the cupcakes for the birthday girl! She loved them. It would also be cute to add initials of the party guests or even let them decorate their own leotards as a craft.
Soon I’ll share more Purplicious party ideas, along with a printable “Purplicious Bingo” game we played!Pin It
