Are you just loving the Woodland vibe that’s out there in party and decor right now? it’s so fun and I just love the rustic feel. It’s a great theme for celebrations, parties, and even weddings – with that thought in mind I’ve made some Woodland Cupcake Wrappers and I just love them!
On display as a whole set, they really make a statement. They take cupcakes to a whole new level, and they were super simple to make with my cutting machine:
A lot of projects I do with my cutting machine I say that you could also attempt with hand cutting – this isn’t one of those! The details are so intricate, and you want to make them over and over, so a machine for sure on this project. I used my new Cricut Explore and it was super easy. The design was actually an option right through their software – I just grabbed it and it was ready to cut. It was that easy.
I used two types of paper, one with a wood grain and one that mimics burlap. I thought both had a woodland feel and had depth and the illusion of texture, so they were a great choice. As a flat shape, cupcake wrappers look like a crescent shape:
You simply take one end that’s a “hook” and slide it into a precut slit on the other end – this is how you assemble the wrapper. It’s best to put your cupcakes in their wrappers BEFORE you put the icing on – trying to slide a cupcake topped with icing into a wrapper would be tricky!
I really love how a simple project like this can make such an impact!
I think you could build a whole party-scape around these fun cupcake liner wrappers!
And in other news, as I set up in the driveway (where the light was the best) to take pictures for you, I wonder if the new neighbors think a bunch of crazies moved in…
