How to make Jack Skellington cupcake toppers
So the easy part, print off your Jack Skellington cupcake topper using Cricut Design Space. Then you'll load them into your Cricut machine and allow that to do the cutting. Cut out the black cardstock of the silhouette so that you have something to place your Jack Skellington pictures to it.
You can use white cardstock to print on and then just glue it to your black silhouette cardstock or use some printable vinyl just to make it into a Jack Skellington cupcake sticker.
How do I print with my Cricut?
So it's not actually your Cricut that is printing. To print with your Cricut, you'll need an actual printer which will print off your design and the registration marks. Place that printed paper onto your Cricut mat and then load it into your machine. The Cricut has an electronic reader near the blade and that will read your registration marks so that your machine will know where to cut.
*You will need to have calibrated your Cricut Machine before you're able to cut precisely on your Cricut. Go here to learn how to calibrate your Cricut.
Use some hot glue to attach the Nightmare Before Christmas toppers to the toothpick or skewer. These Jack Skellington cupcake toppers are sure to be a hit at any party.
