This is a simple tutorial on how to make cupcake wrappers.
These little wrappers are easy to create and make your cupcakes very
decorative for any type of party. These wrappers are different then

turn out looking greasy or dull. The wrappers give your cupcakes a
fresh, more dressed up, party look to them.

with lace glued to the top.
Before starting your decorating, buy cardstock paper that is 8- 1/2
