Cupcake Wrapper

I have been in love with these black ghost cupcake wrappers from Paper Orchid for a while now.
And although I wish I could make them, I don't have the laser cutter or the patience and skill to do that by hand.

Then I saw these cute cupcake wrappers from Yummy Cupcake Crafts:

And I scrapbook! So I have a TON of fun paper that I could make those with! But I knew I would need a template. So I decided to make one and make a tutorial for you. (Ignore the horrible pictures!! It was 9:00 at night when I decided to do this!)

First you need a cup. A paper cup would work the best, but I only had plastic. And you want it to be the size of the cupcake tin you are going to use:

Then cut straight down to the bottom of the cup (as straight as you can) and cut the bottom out:

Lay the cup flat and trace around the cup on a piece of cardstock or chipboard. (There is not picture of me doing the actual tracing because a plastic cup doesn't lay very flat and I needed both hands.

When you are done it should look like this:

At this point you would cut it out and trace it on the back of whatever cute Halloween paper you have. But it was at this point that I realized that this looked really familiar and a template for these already existed.

So instead of doing all that work (you can if you want to though...) go get one of these:

The cup holder things that keep you from burning your hand, not the drink. Although you can get the drink too if you would like! I recommend their peppermint hot chocolate.

So get the don't burn your hand cup holder thing and use THAT as your template!

And make some fun cupcake wrappers for Halloween!

I was just searching the net for a template for just this thing and here you are with a way to make it myself! Good idea! I'm on my way to make some.
