Cupcake Wrapper T-light Holders


A pack of our cupcake wrappers will make you 12 t-light holders but of course you only need to make as many as you wish…

  • Take out as many wrappers as you need.

You can either just laminate them as they are or you could put coloured tissue paper behind the lacer cut images should you wish to add a little colour to your table decorations.

  • If using tissue paper, cut a piece of coloured tissue paper that covers the back of the wrapper but does not protrude the edges. Secure it lightly to the wrapper with glue or double sided sticky tape. (this is just to make sure it stay in the right place when laminated).
  • When secure and glue has dried place wrapper inside laminator pouch. Or if no tissue paper is used just place wrapper straight inside pouch.
  • Now laminate and leave to cool.
  • Next cut gently round the wrapper leaving a 2-3 mm edge.
  • Finally finish off by securing the two ends together by stapling them together. It is not recommended to glue ends together as the heat from the t-light candle placed inside could ‘melt’ the glue and make it ‘spring’ open when in use causing candle to be knocked over.
  • Tea-light candle is now placed in the middle. We would recommend that it is placed in a small glass container.
