Shaker Cake Topper with strip - DIY Tutorial




I’m happy to share the tutorial of my first shaker cake topper with strip.

This template includes a strip, which means no foam nor chipboard is required to create the shaker part for the sequins, confetti and even mini pomp poms!

Here are the materials:

- Shaker cake topper template

- 65 lb card stock or other thicker card stock

- Clear craft glue (Similar glue)

- Glue gun

- Acetate sheet

- Cutting machine or scissors and craft knife

Bone folder

- Double sided foam tape

- Sequins, confetti, mini pomp poms, etc

Ways to cut the template:

You can use your cutting machine to cut the template or scissors and craft knife.


- Be sure to upload the SVG file in Cricut Design space.

- Remember to set up the score lines of the strip, before sending to cut. Check out my tutorial to learn how to set up score lines in cricut design design space.

- If you want to resize the box, make sure to group all the pieces of the template.  


- If you using a silhouette machine, I recommend using a DXF file.


- I recommend using the PDF file to cut by hand. The PDF file template comes in Letter size paper.

First, print out the template on card stock, then cut with scissors or craft knife. Note: Youll need to print out the acetate template on paper, then trace onto acetate and card stock.

- You can also print all the pieces of the template on paper, then trace onto card stock and acetate and cut them out.
