Homemade Cupcake Wrappers

Cupcake Wrapper Tutorial can be found HERE!

Inspired by Nicky from Small Things Iced (I LOVE her gorgeous cupcakes!!), I decided to make my own cupcake wrappers last night. I recently ordered some of the fancy laser cut ones, and while I like them, I can't say that I love them as much as I thought I would. They are pretty, and really make cupcakes look elegant, but they are really expensive for what they are ($1+ just for one!).

I bought a bunch of nice card stock and some scissors that cut fancy edges, and went to work!

I'm still getting used to cutting straight lines with the fancy scissors, but these aren't bad for a first try! They are time consuming to make ... but so worth it. These are closed with a little tab in the back just like the laser cut wrappers.

Oh what an awesome idea. I love the laser cut ones too, but have to agree they are pricey! Yours look lovely.

Thanks Jenni! I love the idea of being able to make wrappers out of any paper that I want .. so easy to match colors/themes/etc. Yay!

These are gorgeous, and I felt totally the same about the lasercut ones, so not worth the money, but at least they can be used as a template for beauties like these!!!
