How to Edit, Print and Assemble Printable Cupcake Toppers

printable medieval knight cupcake toppers

Every party printables pack from The Digi Dame Party Shoppe contains at least one page of cupcake toppers - usually a dozen toppers in a pack.

Depending on the pack, some of these are editable PDF files, some are non-editable PDF files and some are non-editable JPEG files.

In this tutorial, we will be discussing how to create your editable toppers - from opening the file in Adobe Reader, through to assembling them after printing.

If you have purchased cupcake toppers that are not editable, the instructions on printing and assembly will still be helpful to you, so read on!

The example we have used here is the cupcake toppers from our Medieval Knight Party Printables Pack.
Now, with that out of the way, let's get this party (tutorial) started!

Edit your File in Adobe Acrobat Reader

2. Choose File > Open and choose your file. Click Open (see images below).

3. You will see the editable text fields that are highlighted in blue boxes (see below). Our sample text will usually be visible in these blue boxes. Note: On some systems/versions, you may need to click on the "Highlight Existing Fields" Button in the top right corner of the screen. This will highlight the text fields in which you can begin typing.

4. Highlight our sample text by clicking and swiping over it. Then you can either click on your delete button to clear our text, or simply type your own text over the top of our sample text. As you begin typing, your text will appear, as below. Make sure your text fits inside the box, or it will not be visible when the file prints.

When you have filled in all the fields as desired, then you can choose to save or print your invitations.

Note: The highlighted field boxes will not print on your files. But if you wish to remove them, click Preferences > Forms > Highlight Color and untick the box that reads Show border hover color for fields.

5. To save your edits, Choose File > Save As (as image below) and choose a location on your computer to save your edited file (next image).

Note: Only the latest versions of Adobe Acrobat Reader (Version 11, DC or newer) have the ability to Save Edited files with MAC & Windows.  If there are no Save or Save As options under the File menu, then you are using an earlier version of Adobe Acrobat Reader. You can only save files in PDF format using Adobe Reader, which is the same format as the original file.

  • Glue or tape

7. Cut out each of your toppers using either a round punch or scissors, as shown in the images below.

Next, use glue or tape to attach your lollipop sticks or toothpicks to the back of your toppers. You can cover the sticks with a plain circle the same size as your topper, if desired (optional).

And now your personalized cupcake toppers are ready to insert into a delicious iced cupcake! But that is not all - you can use your toppers as stickers if you print onto sticker paper, or envelope labels or other decorations. The only limit is your creativity.
