The Allure of the Cupcake Wrapper

I never thought it possible to improve upon a cupcake! A cupcake in and of itself can be such an exquisite little work of art--sometimes even a tiny one if a mini cupcake is made--with dreamy, creamy frosting swirled over the little cake, and everything from jeweled sparkles to a garden of flowers placed on that small rounded mound of perfection. I've seen some beautiful ones lately--in magazines mostly. I was also at the craft store this week and noticed some for sale. I think it is a rather extravagant splurge for the already glorious cupcake, but I can't help liking them! I decided to do a simple search and found some GREAT wrappers on Etsy that I thought I'd share with you. I'll certainly keep these shops in mind when I'm ready to have my own parties with all the stops and whistles, and I hope you will too.
These pretty wrappers are at Have2HaveItPersonalized. I think her design is very fancy--perfect for a wedding or the most feminine of parties.
These two by Geekinesis are amazing and hold many fabulous possibilities. Their intricacy is alluring.
Any--and, yes, EVERY--floral cupcake deserves this picket fence wrapper by Cupcakeflair.
This one by Joosy Card Co is fabulously French and elegant.
And this one by ALittleLollipopTree is just plain fun. Though the design is simple, I can't resist them! They make me think of popcorn (which along with cupcakes is one of the "fun" foods in the world), and I can just imagine decorating cupcakes with yellow and white marshmallow bits to make the cupcake top look like popcorn in a bag.
I hope you've enjoyed these great finds as much as I have.
