#349_How to Make Cupcake Wrappers

Let me share with you a DIY cupcake wrappers using paper doilies, the idea of which I saw on Pinterest.

The wrappers on the left are cut out from the doilies and the ones on the right are the store-bought laser-cut ones which are kind of pricey.
These doilies are $1.00 for a pack of 10 at the Dollar Store.

First, make a template: or you can download one from the net.
Wrap a piece of paper around a cupcake, tape the seams together, then mark where you want to cut it out. Make sure to mark about 3/8 of an inch above the rim of the cupcake.

                                         Take out the paper and cut out along the marked lines.

 Open it up and use this template to trace it with a pencil on the back side of the doilies.(I used a marker pen so the marks will show in the picture) You can stack up your doilies as many as your scissors can cut. You can get 3 wrappers out of one doily, which  means that out of the 10 pieces you'll get 30 wrappers just for a dollar!! How cheap can that be?!

This wrapper is made from a doily paper.

You can also make your wrappers out of gift wrap papers for birthdays, baby showers, bridal showers or any occasion.


  1. Hello Mely...long time no hear! I have been making cupcake wrappers for years now and I found that scrap booking paper works best (for me anyway!). It holds up better than gift wrapping paper and the designs on the scrap booking paper are soooo cute!

    Then doilies that you use...the centers (plain ones ), cut to desired height of the cupcake wrapper and use a puncher (tulip or other designs)... and wrap it around a plain colored scrap booking paper cupcake wrapper. It makes a sturdy cupcake wrapper with sort of stencil design...

    1. Betty!!!yah, long time no hear indeed! how have you been? Thank you for dropping by with your great ideas! I love the scrapbook papers idea! Why didn't I think of that?
