Make It Handmade

After having a pair birthday events below my belt, I’ve determined that cupcakes (stylish or not) are the best way to go children birthday events.

They’re simple to move, and keep away from the mess and trouble of reducing up a cake in the course of the occasion. And they’re cute! Effectively, more often than not. At my son’s Bob The Builder occasion final yr the chocolate cupcakes made the yellow cupcake wrappers look muddy brown. This yr for my daughters occasion I made a decision to strive making cupcake wrappers as a option to keep away from this drawback.

Discovering wrappers that I appreciated was an issue. I needed some that weren’t tall sufficient to the touch the icing, and coated the discolored wrappers fully.

 I searched excessive and low for some cupcake wrapper die that met my necessities. I lastly settled on these dies from W+9.

What I like about these:

  • They’re barely shorter than retailer purchased wrappers, so I can match 4 to a sheet of cheap 8.5×11 cardstock. Different dies I checked out solely match 4 to a 12x 12 sheet. 
  • They’ve tabs and slots for closures so they’re simple to safe closed on the time without work the occasion
  • They’ve a fairly edge, however aren’t overly female or masculine. (See how boyish those within the image are!) 
  • They cowl the whole cupcake paper. So many wrappers that I checked out had been lacy or see through– which did not assist with my chocolate bleed by sample. 
  • And… they arrive with an non-compulsory accent pack to brighten the wrappers with! 

This is a fast rundown of the right way to put them collectively:

Since an ordinary sheet of paper will not match by your diecutting machine, you will have to chop your paper in half hamburger model. You should definitely place your die as vertically as potential since it is a tight match to get two wrappers in every half.

 These could be so attractive carried out on fairly scrapbook paper. Since I used to be making so many (and I used to be on a funds) I ended up utilizing plain paper, after which stamping it with a floral design. I appeared by my stash for any floral stamps, and organized them utilizing a wrapper as a information. I then used one among my massive quilting rulers to choose up all of the stamps directly.
 This manner I used to be capable of stamp every liner simply as soon as, and end two dozen in simply minutes. Rating!
 The notches do an superior job of holding the wrappers collectively, so you may retailer them flat till the time of your occasion.
 The accent pack for the the wrappers is lovable too. The is a die for a bow and tails. It does not appear like a lot as soon as it is reduce out…
 Nevertheless it’s so lovable as soon as it is folded. I like that I used to be capable of make the bow with only one glue dot– tremendous easy if it’s a must to do a bunch.
 It’s also possible to mess around with the tails to create totally different kinds. There may be additionally die for the paper ribbon that goes across the wrapper as proven on the blue cupcake wrappers from above.
 They simply made my little cupcake show. Not a single one fell apart– they usually had been really easy for little palms to carry!
  this image from above you may sort of see how a lot darker the chocolate wrappers are compared to the vanilla, however the cupcake wrappers made all the pieces look good and constant. They had been tremendous fast and simple to make, (and enjoyable too). Subsequent, I need to strive stamping a private sentiment on the wrappers once I make small batches as a present! How cute would it not be to ship a cupcake that claims “Pleased Birthday” or “Thank You” on the wrapper? That is my sort of present 🙂

I need to ship a an enormous thanks to W plus 9 for sending me the dies to make use of for this assessment. I used to be not compensated in anyway, and all opinions are my very own.
