Hi ladies! We are having a cupcake tier instead of a traditional wedding cake. I loved the filigree wrapper but they are out of our budget. So I created them myself! So easy! I used a template for the size and shape and designed them to match our invites. I printed them on cardstock and I cut the edges using a scalloped scissor. I even glued a rhinestone to it. So what do you think!

Wow! Those look amazing! I can’t believe they are DIY! We are also planning cupcakes, and when I saw the price of those fancy cupcake cups I needed to be picked up off the floor! I hope you don’t mind me using your idea! What kind of cardstock did you use? Did you just attach the paper to the out side of the regular cup paper after baking them? And how did you get that cute pattern on there?

Those are fantastic… and I love the little seahorse! You did a great job! This is a project for the DIY section of the site for sure. You should post it there, too! :o)

Hi! Thanks! I’m pretty impressed with them too! I used 65lb cardstock (lots left over from my DIY pocketfold invites) I printed them using my inkjet printer. The design was created in Adobe Illustrator, I matched my invites, which I designed too! The possibilities are endless! You can put your logo, cute words, poems, anything! I used Scotch 3M wrinkle free glue stick for the back (just overlap your ends by a 1/4 in or so. I also used the same glue to apply the rhinestone. Yay! Glad you like them. I hope another bride can use this idea for an inexpensive, but surely more adorable and personalized cupcake!

By the way, I wanted to add that you don’t bake the cupcake with the wrapper. After they are baked you just slide them into the wrapper (the wrappers are glued ahead of time). 🙂 Yes it’s a little time consuming, but fun! Have your girlfriends help you out! Have a cupcake party!! it also depends on how many you will be making, I just needed 100.

Those are adorable! The scalloped edge really makes them look professional.

I have a question – might be silly – are you making your cupcakes or getting them catered. My DoC told me the cupcake people might not ‘like it’ if I made wrappers for the cupcakes.
