Here is a nice and easy way to fancy up your cupcakes for Halloween.  Don't worry about decorating them when you can just dress them up.

  • Silhouette Cameo (or you can print and cut these out)
  • Paper
  • Scissors 
  • Tape or Glue
  • Cupcakes
  • Silhouette File or your own design (I had to upload it in a zip file in order to get it on the site.  If this doesn't work, or you just want the file, you can email me or PM me and I'll get it to you)

To get started, I cut up a cupcake liner to kind of get an idea of how big it would need to be.  It looks like a good 9 inches should be long enough for most cupcakes.  I went a little longer and then just cut off the excess.  From my experimenting (Photo 6) I decided it was best to not have a straight liner or a circle curved liner.  It seemed like an oval shape works out nicely for not being too wide (Photo 8) or too tight (Photo 9).

Creating the Pumpkin Liner:  (Photo 12 - 17)
  • Create an oval and and use that to line up your design.  Don't have it as extreem as my half circle one, but don't have it go straight.  (I don't have my original screen shots so you don't see the oval in my images but you can see the curve I created.)
  • Then draw or upload your design/image.  I used a pumpkin from one of Silhouette's free images of the week. (Photo 12)
  • Delete part of each side of your design, where the designs are going to meet up (for me, it is the sides of the pumpkin) and deleted the bottom, where the design will meet the base.  (Photo 13)
  • Copy and repeat the design over and over making sure the open sides meet up and twist it one way or the other to get the curve.   (Photo 14)  Use the green circle to rotate the design.
  • If there is a lack of connection, as you can see at the base of my pumpkins, create a line or whatever is needed to connect the images together. (Photo 15)
  • Copy until your image is long enough. (Photo 16)
  • Create the base by using two straight lines down on each side and a curved line to connect them. (Photo 17)

Very true, it does get between you and the cupcake, so, for me, they didn't stay on the cupcakes very long!

What a great application of CNC paper craft. Nice work! Do you think the cameo could cut through some kind of material that would be oven safe so that you could use these as the actual cupcake wrapper?

It is supposed to be able to cut through fabric and vinyl so I image it could!
