Create your own party cake toppers with Shrinkie paper. A modern spin on those 80's shrinky wrappers. These are perfect to have in your drawer of supplies when anyones special day rocks around. Use the free design or draw your own!

Step 1: Supplies

Gather your supplies. You'll need: 

Printable Shinkie paper (found in craft stores or online)
Hot Glue Gun
Bamboo skewars

Step 2: Download Print & Shrink

Print out the free design found here - http://www.scribd.com/doc/112821988/Polkadot-Prints-Shrinky-Cake-Numbers
or draw or design your own pattern then follow these image instructions.
(Follow the packet instructions for shrinking your designs)

Step 3: Assemble

Once they are glued to the bamboo sticks you are all good to go. You can embellish these however you would like. I added a gold foil fringe. But you could add glitter for a little sparkle too!

Step 4: Party!

Pop them into the top of a cake, cupcake or as a gift topper for a simple way to jazz up your next birthday cake. Great for keeping in the office drawer for those impromptu morning teas. And at home to be used over in any combination!
