A cupcake wrapper is a decorative paper form -- separate from the cupcake liner used for baking -- which is placed around a cupcake to add a little flair. Cartridges for home die-cutting machines can be purchased at most craft stores. However, using any vector-based graphics editor, you can easily create your own templates and customised cupcake wrappers in a Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) format for use in compatible die-cut machines and software.

    Navigate to images.google.com and search for a cupcake wrapper template. Right click and select "Save As" then open the file in an image manipulation program such as GIMP, Photoshop or Paint. A free template can be found at freeprettythingsforyou.com

  2. 2

    Modify the image until your cupcake wrapper is personalised. Save the file as a JPEG and exit the image editing program.
