My daughter is having a little party with a few of her friends this weekend to celebrate her birthday, and I am making cupcakes for her. ( We are having her birthday cake the following weekend with all of the family )
I really love the cupcake wraps that you can buy, but they are so expensive. The more fancy ones are a least a dollar each. So for the two dozen cupcakes I am going to be making I would need to fork out at least $24.00 just for cupcake wraps. That is just not going to happen.
So I thought that I would try to make my own. I had a 40% off coupon for Michael’s craft store and bought a pretty paper edge punch from the Martha Stewart collection. Then I went to Home Sense and found a huge book of thick scrapbooking paper. I found a template on line for the cupcake wrap ( I made it slightly longer) and traced it on the paper and then used the paper edge punch to make the design around the edges. This is what it looks like.
Oh, I can’t wait till christmas. I can make smaller wraps to put truffles and fudge in. I’m so excited!!!
