Cupcake Carnival: Lindsey from The Lovely Paper Blog

Hello! I am Lindsey from The Lovely Paper Blog! I was delighted when Kimberly asked me to guest post during her yummy Cupcake Carnival because I LOVE anything to do with cupcakes!

I love making cupcakes, because they are so yummy and they can be so cute! I love finding cute cupcake liners, but I hate it when they blend in with the cupcake after I pull them out of the oven. You know what I mean? So, in an effort to find cupcake papers that don't fade in the oven, I found these darling cupcake papers at Fancy Flours and... oh my! I'm in love! To use them, you cook your cupcakes with ordinary [cheap] cupcake liners and then you wrap these cupcake papers around your cupcakes when you are done decorating. So cute, right?

Unfortunately, these little cupcake papers can be a bit pricey... so I made up my own template, which you can download here. Making my own is so much more fun, because I can use any paper I want (not to mention the fact that I am saving money)!

To make your own cupcake papers, all you have to do is:

1. Download and print off the template

2. Trace the template onto cute paper

3. Secure it together with a little hot glue

4. Place your delicious cupcake inside

This adorable cupcake was decorated using the cupcake paper template:

The Lovely Paper Blog is about all things paper! It is also a creative journal in cahoots with The Lovely Paper Shop website where we design and print custom wedding invitations, baby announcements, and personal stationery.
