Here’s an assortment of over two dozen free printable cupcake wrappers that I’ve collected from around the net (blank templates and plenty with pretty patterns and designs too).
It’s really easy to make your own using decorative paper, a bit of glue or tape and a few crafty embellishments. I’ve tucked in some tutorials at the bottom of the page that give a bit of creative inspiration.
This is such a simple way to jazz up an ordinary cupcake, making them more festive and fun for any occasion!
First up, I have a pdf download for you here featuring simple striped wrappers with scalloped edges, colors available: Purple, Red, Blue, Pink and Black. Click Here To Download The File. There are two per page and if you find them a bit large, just trim the edges a bit to adjust.
Bonus #2: Here are a few different witches legs that you can use as Halloween toppers. Simply download the pdf, print them off (reduce/enlarge as desired before printing), then adhere to a toothpick, place with feet up and knees resting on the cupcake surface. So fun! Witches Legs Toppers. Paste two together (wood stick in the middle) or a single piece will display nicely too.
Now on to the freebie collection…I’ll be adding more as I find them so you may want to bookmark it for future reference :).
*Note: I’ve only included those that are free to download with zero hassle (meaning no signups or emails required to get them). Sometimes things change so if you’re having trouble with one, please let me know in the comments area below.
