Make your own cupcake wrappers

    Posted by  ·  October 22, 2009

    This is so easy to do, but  if you don’t want to spend the time making a template I have one for you.

    Cupcake Wrapper Template Download


    All you need is some scrapbooking paper! I did use scalloped scissors to cut across the top to give them a fancy edge. You might need to make slight adjustments for height and length depending on the size of your cupcakes. Fasten the wrappers together with glue stick or hot glue.


    Come back tomorrow to for a free digital cupcake wrapper template with some different paper options to drop into the template and print! There will also be a tutorial on how to use the digital template.

      Thank you for sharing your pattern and ideas.
      I am cutting them a little wider, extending the top only, to make wrappers that will look like tea cups. I tried and tried to make my own pattern but was having difficulties.

      Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Thank you so much for the template! I printed it out on a 8.5 x 11 paper (the normal size) but the wrappers seem too short for a regular cupcake. What size paper do you use to print it out before you trace it on a scrapbook paper?

      Just downloaded the template. Can anyone tell me how to do the last step using gimp? I can't get the paper layer to take on the shape of the wrapper.

      This we great; thank you! I am starting a small baking business and wanted some pretty wrappers for a dozen cupcakes I donated to an auction at my parent's church, but couldn't fathom paying over a dollar a wrapper. I printed your template and bought beautiful foiled leaves scrapbooking paper and voila! I had the loveliest wrappers for my red velvet cupcakes :)

      Thanks so much for posting this. I tried to make my own and you figured it out for me. I took a copy of the wrapper and shrunk it to %75 on my copy machine and could use it for mini cupcakes.

      OMG these seems great but... when you cook your cupcakes do you cook them with the scrapbook paper?? or do you you just glue it after they are all cooked??
