Try this tutorial – http://www.brides.com/planning/favors/feature/article/182890/

Note: Covering votive cups that taper from top to bottom is a bit trickier; there needs to be a slight curve to the top and bottom of the paper when it’s cut. To get the proper shape for your template for tapered votives, wrap a piece of scrap paper firmly around one of the votive cups and hold it in place. With a pencil, trace along the top rim and bottom edge of the holder onto the paper. Unroll the paper and cut out the shape, extending the length 1/4 inch to create a small overlap when the votive is wrapped. Copy the shape onto cardboard or cardstock and cut it out to make a reusable template.”

Another option is to trace around that template and then scan it in as a picture so that you can print multiples on one page. 

The tea light holders are really cute, but they’re also really tiny.  I would a few practice ones to see if they’ll be big enough for the information that you want to print on them.

Good luck!
