How to make Cupcake wrappers

I love making my own cupcake wrappers, it is super easy to do and you can get exactily what you want. I have seen the intricate ones you can buy from websites or even the ones you can make with machines like the cricut machine or the silhouette but you can make them on your own and I have even made them out of doilies like these:  


Over at Intimate Weddings they have a template that is great and can be used with any paper you want and a little bit of double stick tape. I have used them to make my sisters wedding cupcake wrappers. First I traced the pattern on my paper then cut it out and used fancy scrapbooking scissors on the top edge,  I then used a stamp and stamped the paper. Use a piece of double sided tape on the back. I like to line up the top decorative edge.  I have found it is easier to decorate the cupcakes and gently place them in the cups afterwards using your fingers in the bottom to guide the cupcake into place. It is important to not let the frosting touch the paper or the butter/shortning/margarine in it will seep through and stain your pretty paper.
