Hi everyone! Amanda here today. The other day I went to the local bakery for some carbtastic goodness and had the most delicious pumpkin chocolate chip muffin. I was so impressed with my muffin that I bought the rest of them and came home and created a customized wrapping for each delicious treat.
Inspired by the brown bakery wrapping around each muffin, I used the rich, warm patterned papers from the Harvest collection to create a pretty wrapping for each muffin. They are super easy to make and don’t require any special tools. Bonus.
Pretty, right? These muffin wraps would help turn a homemade (or bakery bought) muffin into a special treat or gift. Don’t be shy when adding a “from my kitchen” or “home made” sticker. No one will ever know the difference.
Each muffin wrap is wrapped with jute twine secured with a sticker. No doubt that these bakery muffins were made with love.
Although these wraps contain a yummy muffin, you could also use them to doll up a fancy cupcake or fill them with other treats or goodies.
To make the muffin wraps, start with a 7″ x 7″ piece of patterned paper. Fold the paper in half (both ways), creating nice creases. Trace a 2 1/2″ circle on the inside center of the wrap. This will help guide you as you create the remaining folds.
Begin by using your finger to fold the paper along the circle. TIP: Trace the circle several times with a pen to create a score line.
Using the creases and the circle you created earlier, bring the two sides of the crease together, overlapping by about 1″.
Fold your paper over to the side and press down to create a crease on the back. Repeat with all four sides of the muffin wrap.
Fold up each side of the wrap and secure with a staple.
Fluff and fuss over your newly made wrap just a bit, embellish with twine and stickers, and fill with something yummy. Your friends and family won’t be disappointed. (Need another easy fall treat idea? Check out this one HERE.) Thanks for stopping by today!
