Cupcake Wrapper Wedding

It's time for day 2 of Brittany's wedding invitation choices! When we had one of our mini consultations, she referenced the tone of her invites as a "sophisticated child's party." How great is that? Told you she was creative...

Well, I kind of ran with that theme and as you know, I love me some cupcake wrappers. I found these at Michael's and they have a really cool, colorful design on them. In order to make them lie flat, I cut them to the center and it created a really cool fan look. (To see some birthday cards I made using this same technique, visit my Etsy shop!)

I originally wanted to have the cupcake fan in the center of the invite with the wording over the top but it wasn't cooperating with my vision so I ended up making it peek out of the corner. I love it! I added a burlap tie and there you have it! Another way to play this up and make it even more creative is to print the wording on colorful paper like a yellow or teal. I kept mine more neutral because I really wanted the colors in the wrapper to stand out but it's fun to play around with.

This design would be PERFECT for a picnic wedding, birthday party, baby shower...really anything! Since there are SO many options for cupcake wrapper designs, this is really one of those ideas that you could take anywhere.
