cupcake wrappers

I wish I could say that these cupcake wrappers made from paper doilies were my very own idea. I wish I could say that I was the genius behind this DIY brilliance.

I discovered these cupcake wrappers over here. I was skeptical at first, thinking that it looked too easy.

I asked Brittany over at Pink Peacock Paperie to whip me up a template for the cupcake wrappers. Then I tested it out on some doilies that I had kicking around in my arts and crafts room. They just happened to be the perfect size.

I was amazed at how easy they were to make and how pretty they looked. And if you lack patience like moi, you can stack multiple doilies on top of each other and cut out several at a time.

Here is the free cupcake wrapper template download.

Using a glue stick, add glue to one of the edges of the wrapper. Wrap around cupcake and adhere. Fini! Wasn’t that a breeze? BTW, if you don’t want white cupcake wrappers, you can buy paper doilies in a myriad of colours online.
