How to fold individually wrapped sugar cubes with Pour Some Sugar On Me sugar cube wrappers

Remember when I made personalized wrapped sugar cubes to go with my friend Debbie’s shower gift? I’m still obsessed. And this time I made a video to show you exactly how to fold paper rectangles to make individually wrapped sugar cubes. Watch the video and let me know what you think – it’s my first with a voiceover (so self-conscious).

Keep reading for free Def Leppard-inspired wrapped sugar cube printables for you! During trial-and-error of looking at photos of vintage wrapped sugar cubes and experimenting with wrapping I couldn’t get “Pour Some Sugar On Me” outta my head.

C’mon, you know you love this song. Maybe like me you were, ahem, in high school when it came out, and it was one of your varsity volleyball team’s key warm-up songs (and we wondered why the football team always came to watch us). So here are free printable sugar cube wrappers for you that feature choice “Pour Some Sugar on Me” lyrics:

“Pour some sugar on me”
“I’m hot sticky sweet”
“You and me babe hey hey”
“Little miss sugar me yeah”
“Sweet to taste saccharine”
“Sometime anytime sugar me sweet”
“You got peaches I got the cream”
“One lump or two?”

    Hi Ted, it’s made for letter size so I would recommend when you print to make sure that no “size to fit” checkboxes are checked or else the pattern might get stretched. Would love to see your finished sugar cubes! Post me a pic and facebook.com/merrimentdesign and I’ll share them with my followers. I’m so excited that you’re making this! It’s one of my favorite DIY projects.

  2. Ted Says:

    oops – saw the “1/2″ Square Sugar Cubes” after posting :^S
    Another Q: papersize used in template? Made for Letter size or A4?

  3. Ted Says:

    Hi Kathy

    These looks fantastic! I want to try that out on a special occasion coming up. One question though: To use your template I have to find cubes of matching size. But I am in europe and Domino Sugar dots are not “readily available on our side of the pond”. Could you possibly inform me of the size of these cubes?

    Hi Barbara, do you mean the Pour Some Sugar On Me wrappers? I made them and give them away for free …I am an 80s junkie. Enjoy! http://cdn.merrimentdesign.com/images/make-individually-wrapped-sugar-cubes-video-with-pour-some-sugar-on-me-sugar-cube-wrappers-free-printable.pdf

  5. Barbara Says:

    Hi, Where did you get the lovely colored paper? Thanks!

  6. Sarah Says:

    So my former college roommate, who’s getting married in two months, use to play this song. All. The. Freakin’. Time. These will be perfect favors for the happy couple’s Jack & Jill. Thanks for the super idea! :D

  7. Tamara Says:

    Hi Kathy!

    Thank you so much – it worked! I am, as we say in my neck of the woods, “stoked”! I have been a journalist for 18 years, BTW, having been a TV and radio reporter and host and now writer, so I know a good voice when I hear one!

    :-)

    I’ll send pictures when I get my sugars done…and then they can join the ones from France in my handbag…

  8. Kathy Beymer Says:

    Thanks, Merry! Glad that you liked them. BTW, I see from your email address (viewable only to me of course) that you might be in Terre Haute (?) – my home town, home of 80s hair band rock forever. Send me a photo of your weekend handiwork and I’ll tweet it out to everyone.

  9. Kathy Beymer Says:

    Hi Tamara, I fixed the link so give it a try again and let me know how the folding works for you. I love that you have sugar cubes in your handbag! Much better than those silly packets, yes? And thanks for the kind encouragement!

  10. Tamara Says:

    PS you have a lovely voice!! Don’t be self-conscious!

  11. Tamara Says:

    Hi there, I can’t seem to download the printable with SUGAR on it – only the shower one from the previous post. Is anyone else having trouble? I LOVE these! I have traveled to Europe a few times and have to admit that there are a few wrapped sugar cubes from the last trip still in the bottom of my handbag!! Awesome DIY.

  12. mouse Says:

    this is the best thing ever!

  13. Merry Says:

    LOVE me some Def Leppard!! Saw them live for the first time two years ago and they totally rocked the place! These are so sweet (bad pun!) and clever! Thank you for sharing them with us. I’m wrapping sugar cubes this weekend and rockin out to some Leppard! :) keep on rockin like it’s the eighties!

  14. winnie Says:

    genius. i love def leppard. this is sheer genius.

  15. Lynnee Says:

    This looks like a fun project! My tween loves to drink peppermint tea with a sugar cube and now I know how to make it more special. Going to “pin” it now!

  16. Julie Says:

    Well done video and voiceover, Kathy! I may need to do this for my sister-in-law’s baby shower. Thank you for sharing.
