Cricut Cupcake Wrapper Cartridge

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I just got the new cricut cupcake weapper cartridge the other day from walmart and it is awesome! The only issue I am having is what size I should cut them in. 2 1/4 seems to be the right size (dont have any cupcakes to try them on yet) but the other day I was reading a post (which I can't find now) and someone said they got 3 wrappers out of one piece of paper, but at 2 1/4 I only got 2 wrappers. Anyone know what size it should be?

I think each design is a little different in the size you have to cut it. What i have done is cut one with cheap paper to get the size right. I think i have the congrats wrapper on 2 1/4 or 2 1/2. I figure the wrapper has to be about 8 to 8 1/2 inches long for a standard cupcake. I can fit two wrappers on the 6x12 mat, what i do is cut one then turn the mat around and cut another going the other way.

Just wondering what the name of the cupcake wrapper cartridge is. I have been to 2 different Walmarts and cannot locate it.

its cupcake wrapper.

And the directions on the cricut site say to click fit to length and cut at 8" for a standard cup cake. I have the original cricut and don't see a fit to length button, but i'm going to have to look again.

I'm waiting for them to update the gypsy so i can set it them up that way.

hi! I was thinking about getting this but had a question... do you need to use a special type of paper, or can you use regular scrapbook paper or card stock? I'm worried about the moisture/grease from the icing getting on the wrapper. Any help/suggestions are appreciated!

I'm just using card stock. I'll let you know about the grease thing after the weekend. I'm working on cupcakes for my son's grad party.

I already Pm'd Maria this info, but in case anyone else is looking for it too. I will post here.

I used card stock, that you would buy in staples or walmarts, not the fancy papers that cost a bundle, and only have a couple of sheets of each style on a pad.

it was 65# paper and it worked well, as far as grease spots i only had problems where i got icing on my fingers then touched the paper. I did ice the cupcakes and let them crust well before putting the wrappers on.

I did have a problem with getting the wrappers to the exact length i need as i only have the original cricut and it doesn't come with the fit to length option. Once provo craft gets these updated to the gypsy i won't have that problem as i can set it all through there. If you have design studio you could set the length there.

They were a big hit at my sons party, and the cupcakes were very simple just swirled, you would have thought i made some elaborate cake, and here it was these simple little wrappers.


No one seemed to notice that the wrappers were a little big for what i was doing, just me. I used the congrats wrapper, and sorry i took no pictures. Was too busy trying to get everything done.

The Cricut Lites aren't TECHNICALLY supposed to be released until July 1st, but they are sneaking into some peoples stores early. My Wal Mart is not one of the lucky ones icon_wink.gif

thanks, peg818! I cut some out this morning, and your info. really helped!

but I've noticed that they don't all actually cut the same size even though they're set to the same size. I'm in the process of cutting all of them with cheapo paper to see which setting works best to fit standard sized cupcakes. I'll be sure to post it when I'm done. I'm surprised that Cricut didn't provide that for us. oh well...more play time for me!

i was concerned about grease leak-through too. i was thinking maybe i could stick clear contact paper to the back of the cardstock and then run it through the cricut...not sure how well that would cut though! but i guess it'd only be a problem if the cupcakes were sitting around for a long time... but good cuppies should be gone quick icon_wink.gif

I've never made them with the cricut, but I've done hand cut ones with scrapbooking paper, and yes, if they sit awhile they will start to get greasy edges, but they're fine for a while. And really, it doesn't leak through to the outside, so it doesn't look tacky. When you pull the cuppy out, you just see a tad where the icign was touching the paper. Nothing gross looking!

What size paper do you use to cut the wrappers? 12x12 or 8 1/2 x 11?
Thank you!

it was $39 at my WalMart.
the size paper depeds on which cricut you have. the original and create take 6x12 and the expressions takes 12x12. I wish I had an expressions now, but I have a create. it still works well, you just have to change the paper more often.
