How to make cupcake cases from doilies…

 I have found a great way of making your own pretty cupcake wrapper cases. You can make approx 20 for less than £1 in total. All you need is a little time, a printer, scissors, glue, and paper DOILIES!

Here are the ones I made earlier today.

With my cupcakes inside

 Here’s what you will need:
Doilies (I bought these ones from Home Bargains for 49p, but you can also get them on ebay for £1.50 + delivery here)
Printer & paper
Glue (I used pritt stick or PVA)
Wrapper template (download here)
Here is my pack of doilies:
Download the pdf template and print it out. Cut out the little shapes. Then hold the shape against the edge of your doily (you can use a pencil to trace the shape if you like) then cut it out.

Then you will end up with something like this:
Then glue the two edges together with a little glue and thats it! 
Once you’ve baked and decorated your cupcakes, just drop them into the wrapper.
Easy peasy 🙂

    I think these are great, particularly as you could use any colour doilies that you like. I have featured them on my blog Springy Beard. Thanks for putting this tutorial out there. x
