A while ago, I was browsing the internet and found a website featuring incredibly cute cupcake wrappers. I wanted to buy some but the shipping cost was pricey. I wonder if I can make it myself with the help of cricut machine. Unfortunately my computer crashed and I lost my cricut software.
Lucky me, Jo-Ann was having a big sale on scarp-booking paper. I got myself a bunch and my experiment began. It was not as easy as tracing a cupcake liner into paper as I thought. It required a lot of trial and errors. Finally, I came up with the right rainbow pattern for a perfect regular size cupcake wrapper.

I have no need of these cupcake wrappers at the moment so I made mine simple… just paper with scalloped edge. To glue the end together I used clear tape. I suggest you use a double sided tape for a cleaner look.
You can go fancy with it by adding ribbons or rhinestones.
You can use solid color paper and add-on stamps.
Wouldn’t it be awesome to use newspaper or lunch brown bag? maybe for Earth day cupcakes?
Yes? No? Maybe?
Here are the summary. To make a cupcake wrapper, you’ll need:
- paper – plain or with pattern
- double sided tape
- craft scissors – optional
- add-on accessories, such as ribbons, rhinestones – optional
- stamps – maybe
The most important thing is the ‘Cupcake Wrapper’ template, see below.
One 12″x12″ scrapbook paper can make 5-6 cupcake wrappers. Happy crafting !
