True :D here.
Welcome to another Tuesday Tutorial!
I'm dedicating this post to our sweet Katie Renz.
I think she would have liked it! :)
Today I am featuring one of my new digi sets called "Snowflake Cupcake Wrappers".
I have found a super quick and easy way to give cupcakes as gifts or to just decorate for parties.
This is what my "Snowflakes Cupcake Wrappers" set looks like.
It is available now for just $2.50 for instant download.
This time I printed my wrapper out on thin presentation paper. (It works so great for vivid colors and for printers that don't like heavy cardstock)
Cut the wrapper out with scissors and punch the topper with a 1 1/2" circle punch.
(or cut by hand with scissors)
Use some coordinating cardstock to stiffen up the wrappers and add some more detail.
Temporarily attach the wrapper to the cardstock with just a tiny bit of tape runner to hold it to the cardstock while you cut around it.
I used a round scalloped Nestability that is just a little bigger then the topper, to cut a coordinating circle.
Cut the sides and bottom of the wrappers with straight scissors then cut about 1/4" above the top of the printed wrapper with scalloped scissors. (you can use straight scissors if you would like)
Gently peel the printed wrapper up and use more tape runner to attach the printed paper to the cardstock on both pieces.
Then run a line of tape to the inside of the assembled wrapper.
Bring it around and attach it to the other end.
I love that Wilton has blue snowflake sprinkles this year! I have seen them in almost all stores and they work with my wrappers perfectly! :)
Another thing I do is to set the baked cupcake down in a foil cupcake wrapper so that oils don't soak into the outer wrapper and spoil the look.
This is what it looks like before packaging. Pretty isn't it? :)
To keep the cupcake from getting squished and the frosting from getting messed up in the bag, I first drop it down in a clear Dixie cup.
Then place it in a clear treat bag.
This time we are turning the topper into a tag, so you will need to use a hole punch to punch a hole.
Tie a pretty ribbon that coordinates with the wrapper, then attach both with the twisty ties that come with the treat bags.
Doesn't it make a lovely presentation? :)
I think it looks "snow yummy"! :)
The cupcake recipe is super yummy too. My own creation and I call it "True's Blue Hawaii Cupcakes".
If you like coconut and pineapple,
