  1. Using the design program, lay out your picture three times in a 1½ by 1½ circle and print. Printing your photos on sticker paper makes it easier to
    assemble your 3-D toppers.
    You can also print on plain paper and use a glue stick to assemble.
  2. Cut out each picture.
  3. Fold each circle in half. Peel off backing and adhere your toothpick to center of one of the circles. Adhere second circle to half of the first circle,
    adhere third circle to first and second circle, creating a 3-D topper.
  4. Insert into a yummy cupcake or any other dessert!
