Cupcake Wrappers… They come in an amazing array these days. Black , gold, filigree, glitter, artful cut outs, the types are endless. You can honestly get a wrapper to fit any theme on any day of the year. Here is our issue though. Some times you just don’t need ALL the wrappers that come in the package. It’s kind of like Hot dogs and hot dog buns….
Here is the deal though, with extra hot dog buns you can make french bread for your sweetie the next morning. With Extra cupcake wrappers…. or in some cases crushed cupcake wrappers… We have found some really fun stuff to make these bad boys useful, or at least pretty. Check it out!

Cupcake wrapper flowers
If I’m going being honest here though, these cupcake wrappers are so fancy and fun, I fully plan on incorporating them into my own bridal bouquet. It does make the most sense. So I look forward to sharing the fun and/or frustration that that provides and the final product once I’m done. It’s going to have to wait a little bit though because I have asked friends and family to donate jewels and pearl like shiny things so that they are all a part of the ensemble and walking right down the aisle with me.
Hrm… that’s right… I guess I should put that on here, this cupcake lady is getting MARRIED! ❤
