The most important thing you need to make wrappers for your cupcakes are fun, colorful sheets of 8 -1/2 x11 cardstock and your printer. The design or pattern on your cardstock is what will set the tone for your cupcakes.
If you are having a holiday party look for coordinating paper in
Halloween, Christmas, Easter or whichever holiday you are
celebrating. For a birthday party, look for bright fun
designs in colors to match the party.
Making wrappers for wedding cupcakes can work well too by finding elegant looking white paper or finishing off the wrappers with lace glued to the top.Before starting your decorating, buy cardstock paper that is 8- 1/2 x11 or paper that will fit into your printer. Using double-sided paper like the above picture works well, too.
