~Our Renewals~ Hey my WBC family! I've been a little hush- hush lately. Our 14th wedding ann...
Sorry for the delay ladies. I was eating cupcakes. But here is the tutorial for how to make your own super cute cupcake holders.
Step 1: Get the template for the basic shape of the holder. I found a really great one HERE. If you have cardstock print it out on that so when you trace the shape it's easier.
Step 2: Cut out one of the shapes.
Step 3: Find cute paper. I went to Michael's and found this book of scrapbooking paper with a bunch of cute black and white designs. It cost $30 but I have a 50% off coupon so it came to roughly $18.
Step 4: Trace the shape template as many times as possible on the paper you want to use.
Step 5: Cut them all out.
Step 6: Assemble cute scissors with a fun edge and scrapbooking punches. I was super lucky and borrowed these from a couple friends. I did notice that the punches were pretty expensive at Michael's ($30 each).
Step 7: Cut the longer edge of the holder using the funky scissors.
Step 8: OR Experiment with the punches on the longer edge of the holders. These were a little trickier to do and I actually wrecked a whole bunch while figuring out the placement of the holder in the punch.
Step 9: Admire all your handiwork (this is the back of the paper so you can see the edges more clearly).
Step 10: Figure out how big/small the holder needs to be and tape edges together. I started by gluing it closed but it took too long, got very messy and I was worried the glue might get on the cupcakes. You notice the tape more, but it will be dark in the venue so I don't think anyone will REALLY notice.
Step 11: Pop a cupcake in to make sure it is as adorable as possible.
PS. Do NOT tell your fiancee there are cupcakes in the fridge, but he can't eat them because of a wedding project. He will look at you as if you are crazy then try to eat all the cupcakes. :)
Let me know if you have any questions or run into any problems! Good luck!
