Mermaid Tail Cake Topper

This past month I have been busy planning my daughter’s 3rd birthday photo shoot. Because Ella is all about Mermaids these days, I decided to go all out and have come up with some really fun ideas and new tutorials, including this Mermaid Tail Cake Topper.

I’m a closet graphic design doodler when I am not busy with paper flowers so today you will get to scoop up this free ‘Under the Sea’ mermaid tail cake topper!

I’m excited to show you just how easy it is to create this; and most of all I can’t wait to show you the whole mermaid inspired photo shoot when it’s finished. I am even teaming up with my new friend from Press, Print, Party and using her awesome mermaid printables!

Supplies you will need/want:

Grab your cake topper cut file just below.  This is intended for personal use. If you would like to sell the topper made from the cut file you may do so as long proper credit is given. Link our website or tag us on Instagram with your creations.

If you do not have a cutting machine there is a PDF included that can be printed and the outer silhouette cut out.

Sign up and find it in the Party Printables section!

Watch the full tutorial below to see how it is put together!
