Hi guys
I am trying to work out exactly how the Cricut machine even works.
I don't have sound knowledge as I've never seen one in action.
I need cupcake wrappers for my own wedding, but im actually going to be rolling up face towels and putting them in the wrappers, so the size of the wrapper is very important, since I can't just put a little less or a little more batter in my cups to suit the size of the wrapper!
I've purchased a pack of these wrappers which suit my towels perfectly http://www.cupcakewraptureshop.com/shades-of-strawberry-pink.html
BUT -
I can't seem to find a coral colour to match my bridesmaids dresses
SO...
I was thinking, if I used this correct cutter size, and found coral coloured paper myself, could I make them with a cri cut machine?
I'm so tired of looking online and trying to guess which wrappers may suit me best, its actually really hard, I thought it would be so easy! I guess I chose a less common colour.

Cricut makes a cupcake wrapper cart. You can adjust the size like the others. I think it was about $20 at Walmart. I think I got 4 standard size from a 12x12 card stock. I have also used wallpaper cut to my mat size. HTH

thanks so much... where can I look at the shape of it, or where can I check the measurements at its assembled size?
Really I just want a simple solid wrapper with scalloped edging - not lacework or other fancy cutouts because the towel inside could possibly show through a bit messy.

Go to cricut.com and go into the craft room and pick the cupcake wrapper cartridge and play around with that and use the size of a wrapper you have that fits your needs as the measurements. You can do all that first and then get the cartridge. But how are you going to cut them if you don't have a cricut?

well I thought I could buy one - until I saw the price and figured for 150 wrappers that I need, maybe it wouldn't pay me to do that. Its just that I'm really struggling to find the right colour and shape and thought I could make them if I knew more about cricut.

p.s. I went into the craft room but I am unable to fine the cupcake cartridge.
