Cupcakes are the bestest… we all know that, right? There’s a new trend in weddings to go portable and cute with the sweets, and cupcakes fit the bill. Homemade or gourmet, they’re hard to resist and I have a fancy schmancy new way for you to DIY dress up your little cupcake morsels of delight!
It’s easy to take your cupcakes to the next level with some snazzy specialization a la DIY cupcake wrappers. This literally takes minutes and uses very little material or supplies.
Caveat: My cupcake decoratin’ skills need a little help. I had a short amount of time, and truth be told… a short fuse. Don’t hate!
- Decorative scissors (optional)
- Wrapping paper or decorative scrapbooking paper
- Double-sided tape
- Template design (shown below)
Print out the template at 100%. If you’re making the bigger muffin-style of cupcakes you’ll have to wing your design. Just use the smaller one to go off of, size up, and you should be golden.
Cut it out along the cut lines as noted with the solid black lines. Trace the cutout shape onto the wrong side (back side) of your decorative or wrapping paper. Cut the paper along the traced lines.
If you have decorative scissors and want to make them EVEN fancier, then cut along the top portion of the cupcake wrapper again, to make it super decorative and rad. Make sure you’re only cutting the top slopey piece (the longer side) with the decorative scissors, and not all the way around to the bottom and sides.
Double-back tape the two ends together. Place around your cupcakes. Rinse and repeat as needed. Super cute, super crafty, super simple!
