SVG Cupcake Wrapper Instructions
Make an SVG template to decorate your cupcakes with a customised cupcake wrapper. (Jupiterimages/ Images)

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.
