Making Your Own Cupcake Wrappers

Cupcake wrappers are called so because it simply is wrapped around your cupcakes. Unlike cupcake liners which are included during the baking process, cupcake wrappers are added after baking to give more character to your already pretty and delicious cupcakes. It also gives you a chance to personalize your cupcakes according to the occasion like inscribing "happy birthday" or "happy anniversary" or including the name of your loved ones or using prints that you like. That is why it helps to learn to make your own.

Now here's how to make your own DIY Cupcake Wrappers. I actually used my son's old Dora book here for illustration. :)

1. Measure the circumference of the base of your cupcake liner. We'll use this in step 3.

2. Also measure the height of your cupcake liner. We'll also use this in step 3.

3. Using the measurements in steps 1 and 2, cut out strips for your Cupcake Wrapper. So if your base circumference is 7", then the length of the strip is 7". If your cupcake liner's height is 2", then the width of your strip is also 2". Then add at least 1/2" on the strip's length for the flap and the allowance from the edge to the slit (encircled above) for the cupcake wrapper's lock. Using the 7", the total length now of your strip is at least 7 1/2".

Also note that the curver your strip is, the more slanted the sides of your DIY Cupcake Wrapper will be. Check out the straight and angled cupcake wrappers in step 5 to see the difference.

4. Insert the flap in the slit (A) and fold in the opposite direction (B) to secure your DIY Cupcake Wrapper.

5. Voila! Your DIY Cupcake Wrappers are now ready to use. Now go enjoy dressing up all your mouthwatering cupcake creations. :)
