Deelish Inside Out

Doily-wrapped cupcakes are my idea of a white tea party treat

This Wednesday I offer you a very easy do-it-yourself project to make a pretty treat even more fun. Use these white cupcake wrappers at your next gals’ night in and you’ll earn major domestic goddess points.

I found this little project featured one of our favourite blogs, How About Orange, who in turn found it at Intimate Weddings. I reproduced the instructions here to show you just how easy it is to create these lovely white cupcake wraps. To make the doily cupcake wrap you will need to download the semi-circle pattern shape here.

What you need:

Doilies (About 11 inches across, makes two cupcake wrappers)

Everyday tools: paper, scissors, glue stick

How to make the cupcake wrapper (3 super easy steps):

Step 1: Trace inner part of the the semi-circle pattern on the doily (see images A and B below). Semi-circle pattern available for download here from original source.

1 Paper doily approx. 11 inches across

Trace the inner semi-circle pattern on the doily. Trace the side edges. One pattern tracing = 1 cupcake wrapper.

Step 2: Cut out the inner circle and sides.

Cut your doily along the semi-circle pattern line you traced.

Step 3: Glue the edges of the wrapper together.

Use a glue stick to glue the edges together.

And voila.

Happy tea party!

    Thank you so much for posting the instructions on how to make these.

      My pleasure, Laura! I think they look really great, even if you didn’t bake your own cupcakes ;)

      Another Tip: I read in the full-length instructions that we may want to glue the sides together (the last step) as we wrap the doily around the cupcake to make sure we have the right fit.

      We’d love to know how this project works out for you! Thank you so much for your comment!
