MAKE CUPCAKE WRAPPERS
Step 1 - Print Cupcake Wrapper Template. Use your own cupcake wrapper pattern or get some here!
Step 2 - Cut the pattern out.
Step 3 - Fold around the cupcake to measure where the slit for the tab should be and mark with a pencil.
Step 4 - Cut the slit for the tab in the center on the straight side with a sharp knife or craft knife, about 15mm in length. Once you have marked the first one and it fits fine, you can cut a few together to speed up the process.
Step 5 - Make a small 2mm cut on each side of the rounded tab. This will secure the tab once in the slit.
Step 6 - Place the tab between your index finger and thumb and gently squeeze the two little cut corners away from the paper without actually folding the tab.
Step 7 - Make the cupcake wrapper smaller by cutting off any excess at the end on the opposite side of the tab. If it is to high cut away at the bottom.
Step 8 - Insert the tab sidewards into the slot (it's easier because the slit should be a little smaller than the tab) then wiggle around to secure.
Step 9 - Your cupcake holder is now ready to place a cupcake in!
Step 10 - You can also use the pattern to cut cupcake wrappers from other matching decorative paper.
