Today we’re heading into the kitchen and taking good old fashioned cupcake wrappers and turned them into ultra glam gift wrapper.

Day 5: Cupcake Wrapper Gift 

1. Craft Paper
2. Double sided tape
3. Ribbon
4. Monogram initial cut outs

Wrap your gift in craft paper as usual. Take cupcake wrappers of your choice and flatten them out. You can use a roller or a simple table edge to get them really flat.  Line the wrappers with double sided tape and start to cover your entire box in a pattern that looks like fans. The pattern can be as simple or intricate as you like—be creative! Tie a black ribbon around the box and add cute monogram initial cut outs instead of a card.
