A cute cupcake card is yours without a lot of prepping and absolutely no baking. This project is perfect for craft scraps--think of leftover ribbon, glitter, scrapbook paper scraps, faux jewels--but you will need a few standard supplies such as scissors, card stock and a craft glue of your choice. If you are making cupcake cards for a child's birthday party, consider letting your children decorate their own to make each card creative and unique.

  1. 1

    Select and print two cupcake templates from the Internet. See the resources section for an example. Using a template is the most precise and easiest way to get your cupcake card started.

  2. 2

    Cut out the templates with a pair of scissors. One template you will use as your card base. The other you will cut in half to make a template for the cupcake parts. Cut the top off the cupcake, so there is a top (where the icing and cherry goes) and a base (the cake part).

  3. 3

    Trace the whole cupcake template on a sheet of card stock with a pencil. Repeat this on a second sheet of card stock. Cut out with a pair of scissors and set both cupcakes aside.

  4. 4

    Trace the cut-outs of the top and base of the cupcake on card stock with a pencil. You might want to trace the base on a yellow sheet of card stock and the top on a pink sheet of card stock. Cut out with a pair of scissors.

  5. 5

    Swipe the back of the pink top and the yellow base with a glue stick and press onto the top of one of the whole cupcake templates.

  6. 6

    Embellish the face of the cupcake card with craft scraps. For example, use a silver paint pen to draw vertical lines on the cupcake base. Use a glue stick to attach a strip of ribbon across the base. Attach a faux jewel in the middle of the ribbon strip. Be creative.

  7. 7

    Place the decorated cupcake on top of the blank cupcake template. Staple them together by stapling through the cherry at the top. Squeeze a small dot of glue on top and press a pink pom into the glue.
