Mama Chick and I were discussing how to make the cupcake holders this morning, so I did a little research.
Here’s what I came up with:
We can buy these paper ribbons and somehow affix them to the bottoms of the cupcakes. How? With hot glue? Or spray glue? I think spray glue would look neater and it would all stay better, as well. We could cut out two circles for the bottom and sandwich the paper ribbon between the circles. I will experiment and take pictures!
The Etsy shop of A Bohemian Market has these great paper ribbons that come in white. Unfortunately, their store was on vacation, so I couldn’t get a picture of the exact ribbon I want. Thanks to Miss Apple Cider, I was able to get a couple of pictures in other colors so you can get an idea!
1 roll of 12 yards for $4.00.
Alternatively, we can get these awesome doilies and somehow shape them into cupcake holders. What do you guys think? How would that work?

You can get 8 doilies for $10, and select 4″ or 6″ in diameter. A bit pricey. I really love the butterfly ones. Maybe I can think of something else to use them for, perhaps another project where I won’t need 100+ of them. Again, throw your ideas my way!
Or we could just go with plain doilies. I found these at Anderson’s Giant Party Store. 48 4″ doilies for $2.38! Now that’s more in my price range! I do wonder about the quality…
If we decide to forgo the whole lace/doily DIY cupcake holders, we could always buy some pre-made ones that are cheaper, like these adorable ones from the Etsy shop of Cake With Love. I’ve seen many similar cupcake holders at FIT, an awesome Japanese household store here in Houston. All images below courtesy of Cake With Love:
These would go well with the flower lights!
Or perhaps these?
We could keep it simple. These are a bit more chic than the regular white holders you get at the grocery store:
I like the scalloped edges and the vellum transparency.
If we go with something simple, I could get some of these adorable picks and stick them in the cupcakes! Can you imagine, white cupcake holders with white frosting, with a pop of color that says “Love”? Fab!
I’m not a huge fan of the glitter in those pics. If you find any cute picks, you know what to do – send them my way!
I also like these, but I have no idea what to put in them:
How are you blinging out your cupcakes?
