If you're using the free printable origami paper featured in this tutorial, cut the paper so the green squares are in the middle.
Create Your Origami Cupcake Card _ Fold a sheet of 8 1ǘ by 11 inch paper into fourths to create a base for your card. Attach the origami cupcake to your card with a glue stick or some adhesive squares. If desired, use colored washi tape to create a birthday candle and table base for your card design. You could also use fine tipped markers to go over the fold lines created in Step 5 and add colorful sprinkles to the white cupcake frosting. To add a feminine touch to the card, consider embellishing with a bit of glitter glue or small self adhesive rhinestones used as cupcake sprinkles.
