Cute cupcake wrappers can take any cupcake (even store-bought ones) to the next level. While it helps to have a digital cutter (like the Silhouette), you certainly don’t need one to make cupcake wrappers.  I’m writing this post in two parts: “How to Make Cupcake Wrappers Without a Digital Cutter” and “How to Make Cupcake Wrappers with a Silhouette Digital Cutter”.

How to Make Cupcake Wrappers Without a Digital Cutter

  1. Buy some really cute paper.  It should be a bit thicker than regular printer paper, although if printer paper is all you’ve got, that will work, too.
  2. If needed, trim the paper to 8.5″ by 11″.
  3. Download the PDF with the cupcake design shown above.
  4. Print it on the side of the craft paper that you don’t want people to see.
  5. Cut out the wrapper shape as neatly as you can.
  6. Use a hole punch to punch circles into the wrapper, or cut out any other design that you like.
  7. Glue the ends together using Elmer’s glue.
  8. Slip a cupcake inside and admire your work.

How to Make Cupcake Wrappers With a Silhouette Digital Cutter

  1. Buy some really cute paper.  It should be a bit thicker than regular printer paper, although if printer paper is all you’ve got, that will work too.
  2. If needed, trim the paper to 8.5″ by 11″.
Just a few examples of cupcake wrapper templates available from Silhouette.
  1. Purchase a wrapper template (Silhouette has lots of wrapper templates to choose from, as shown above), download my Silhouette template, or design your own template within Silhouette.
Always put your cupcake wrapper paper on the sticky mat before cutting.
I learned that an easy way to keep the mat clean and sticky
is to use a lint roller between uses.
  1. Prepare your Silhouette file for printing, following the instructions that come with the machine.
  2. Affix your paper to the sticky mat that comes with the Silhouette, and cut! (Note:
    It takes longer to cut more complicated designs.  If you had a computer in the 80’s and used Print Shop on a dot matrix printer, you know what I am talking about.)

 

  1. Peel the cupcake wrapper off of the sticky mat.
  1. Glue the ends of the wrapper together using Elmer’s glue.
  2. Slip a cupcake inside the wrapper, and admire your work.
