Cupcake Liner Bows

Ok, so I LOVE cute cupcake liners! I think they’re one of the funnest things ever. And I sort of hoard them….errr, I mean, collect them. ha! So to justify my {ever growing} collection, I like to find fun ways to craft with them. So of course, here is a fun way to use those adorable Christmas cupcake liners in your holiday gift wrapping endeavors this year.

Here is a quick, easy way to create a cupcake liner bow that will add a little fun to your gifts.

How To Make Cupcake Liner Bows Tutorial


Cut a 2″ circle of white cardstock with a hole punch. Then fold 6-7 mini cupcake liners into fourths.

Hot glue the folded wrappers around the cardstock circle overlapping slightly.


Then hot glue a 1″ cardstock circle to the center to label whose gift it is. {I just used the first initial} and layer on top of a paper doily {I used my Epic die cutter for the white paper doily}.

You can then place directly onto your gift or wrap a thick ribbon around the gift like I did and attach the cupcake liner bow on top.

Use Washi Tape! And one last quick idea, use washi tape to secure your wrapping paper. washi tape craft

People are asking me all the time on my Facebook page for ideas on how to use their washi tape, well here you go! Use washi tape on those gifts for some added spunk! Need some ideas on how to store that cute tape? Check out this Washi Tape Storage post for loads of ideas :)
