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 my 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?”
Supplies for making wrapped sugar cubes:
- Kathy’s free “Pour Some Sugar On Me” wrapped sugar cubes printable template (PDF)
- 1/2″ Square Sugar Cubes (I used Domino brand)
- White paper – get the thinnest paper you can get, it’s easier to fold (if you print at FedEx Office choose their thin 24# laser paper). It would also be fun to try sugar cube wrappers with clear vellum.
- Paper trimmer OR Self-healing mat, rotary cutter and clear plastic ruler

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

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.

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?

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

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...
