As cute as the graduation cap bottle toppers are, I think I got the most ‘love’ for these modern triangle cupcake toppers from the graduation party ideas I styled. I was inspired by the triangle design of the party invitation and knew I wanted to repeat that somewhere in the design. I decided it could be a stylish way to add interest to the cupcakes on the dessert table.

They turned out even cuter than expected! They add such a modern edgy look to the display. What makes them extra special is the 3-D effect they have. These are a quick project, in fact the most time consuming part is deciding how I was going to align each triangle together for the best look!

These can be made in all different colors for any number of party themes. They’re wonderfully suited for young children’s birthday celebrations as well as teens and adults.

These triangle Cupcake Toppers are Perfect for birthdays and other parties too!

DIY Modern Cupcake Toppers


  • 1 pack gold foil stars {I got this set of 5 at Party City}
  • Black heavy duty scrapbook paper or card stock
  • Double sided adhesive foam circles
  • Toothpicks
  • Scissors

Cut the points off the stars to create small triangles.

Cut the scrapbook paper into small triangles. It’s easiest to cut a long strip first and then cut that into angles.

Attach the 2 triangles together in a random pattern, using the foam circles. To get more of a 3-D effect I cut the circle in half and stacked it for more thickness.

Attach a toothpick to the pack of the triangle topper using another adhesive circle or tape.

Place into cupcakes and serve.

Will you be making some of these for your next celebration?  Let me know if you do.

Have a great day!
