How to Make Fortune Cupcakes (Free Printable!)
Wednesday, 25 July 2012
Two weeks ago, I posted a photo tutorial on how to make DIY cupcake wrappers. It’s a really easy process – just print out the free template and get some pretty scrapbook paper. Today I have a slightly more complicated, but even more fun DIY cupcake wrapper for you: fortune cupcakes!
This cupcake wrapper looks totally normal and innocent, right?
Until you take the cupcake out and realize there’s a surprise inside!
I got the idea for this when I saw a package for fortune cupcakes a store. They were selling them for $15 – for just some cupcake wrappers! Can you believe it? I knew this was an easy DIY, so I went home and made them myself. I thought I’d share the process with you guys so you can make them too and save a little money.
You can use this tutorial to make any kind of written surprise in a cupcake wrapper. Plus, it’s a crash course in adding text to photos using my favorite photo editing website, PicMonkey.
