FREE printable gravestone cupcake toppers

The amazingly talented Xialou from 6 Bittersweets asked me to design some cupcake toppers for her recently, and of course what can you say to that except SIGN ME UP! : ) We worked together to design the perfect little printable gravestone cupcake toppers to coordinate with Xialou’s spooky cupcakes and fondant skull and bones toppers, and just look at the fabulous cupcakes she created! (Told ya she’s talented!)

    Hi! I love these cupcake toppers!!! I love Halloween & have a 'Spooky Dinner' every year & these will be perfect...thank you!

    I have a question, though, my daughter's teacher if turning 40 this week & we are making a big deal out of it. I am making cupcakes & only wanted to use the RIP topper. I thought I'd just crop out that one & make a page full of those to print 40. There is a password & I am not able there any way to just get the RIP one? I don't want to print 40 of all of them, I won't even be able to use all of the leftovers at my dinner if I print that many.

    Thank you!!!

      That's a great idea Val! I'll have to keep that in mind if I'm ever in a pinch. Nail polish colors are always more fun anyway! : )

    Would love to open the PDF and print but sadly I cannot. The PDF reader reports a password is required. Is there any way to get this password?

    can the gravestone toppers be used for small home business (commercial) use?

      Heather says:
      Hi Jennie! I'm guessing you're a baker? As long as you're selling the toppers with your cupcakes (not just selling the toppers as a product by themselves) I have no problem at all with you using them for your business. Thank you for asking! : )

        jennie says:
        I'm somewhere in the middle! :) I actually would print them as edible toppers that can be applied flat, directly onto icing. I would sell the toppers for people to use in their own baking. Is this ok? :)

          Heather says:
          That's totally fine! And a great idea : )
