Of course, I can't find it now. Just a week or so ago someone posted they can get 3 or 4 wrappers from one sheet. I can't remember who or if it was 3 or 4.

I'm using a standard size sheet of craft paper (8.5*11). All I can get is 2 no matter how I turn it. Does this sound right for this size sheet? I'm using really expensive paper - need to get the biggest bang for my buck.

I am not needing to follow a decorative pattern or picture on the paper - it's a solid color.


Thanks!

Here's a link to cupcake wrappers in the templates/sketches/patterns gallery:

2 is the most you will get out of 8 1/2x11 if it is regular size cupcake. 3-4 probably could be cut from a 12" square sheet.

I have a quickutz die cutting machine and I can get 6 wrappers out of 12x12 paper. They are a great investment and it's not as time consuming either.

I also get six out of my cricut using scrapbook paper which usually runs a dollar a sheet so it ends up being about .16 cents per wrapper. I can also get six out of cutting them out by hand but then you have to glue or tape them together the template I have for the cricut is made so they connect on their own.
