Vintage Wedding – How to Make Cupcake Wraps

March 8, 2010Sarah Khandjian

Today I have an an extra special post for you. A couple weeks ago Shannon of SNS photography and I did a vintage, handmade wedding shoot. We had tons of fun styling and creating all the little handmade details. We were also lucky enough to have Jamie of Work Your Closet and her husband as our models!

I sugared fruits and made vanilla cupcakes for the centerpiece. We used vintage glassware and linens to compliment the handmade theme. I created the menu using the lovely Repro Depot’s folk and flora pattern books. They are a great resource for the DIY bride or anyone wanting to make fun paper projects.

I also hand painted chalkboards to use as table numbers and photo props.

I made a banner that read, “Sew in Love” that we used the decorate the space. I absolutely love how this can be personalized for the couple and how you can use it in so many locations. For even more eye candy from this shoot, visit Shannon’s blog.

Today I would like to share how I made the patterned cupcake wraps. The details are below.

You will need:
– Letter size cardstock paper (patterned or solids)
– scissors
– Clear tape or glue dots

Print out this file on your favorite patterned paper to create lovely cupcake wraps. You can also print out this file on cardstock and cut out the shapes to create a template. Lay the template on colored / patterened paper and trace along the edges then cut the shapes out. Wrap the paper around a cupcake and secure with clear tape or a glue dot. For a custom look, cut the top edge with pinking shears or scalloped scissors.
