Personalized Sugar Cube Wrappers {free printable + how to wrap}

Custom sugar cube wrappers

I made these personalized sugar cube wrappers to go along with a bridal shower gift for my friend Debbie. I bought Debbie’s sugar bowl and creamer from her registry (very pretty btw) and filled it with personalized wrapped sugar cubes in her pink and orange wedding colors with her soon-to-be married name: Ten Eyck (yep, there’s a space).

Personalized wrapped sugar cubes would also make a great DIY birthday or Christmas gift along with handmade fabric teabags for loose tea.

For the sides of the sugar cube wrapper I used a super cool free font called Aierbazzi to make personalized bouquets. Each letter in Aierbazzi is a plant, and when you type a word it puts the next plant right on top of the previous one, creating a unique bouquet for your words and phrases. This bottom plant on the sugar cube wrapper says “Debbie and Tony” and the top one says “Love Kathy.”

When you fold the sugar cube wrapper, the plants wrap around the sugar cube showing their wedding date on the bottom.

For Debbie’s new married last name I used the free Ostrich Sans font from the League of Moveable Type – those guys are so generous to give away such cool fonts.

This was my second DIY take on Debbie’s shower gift. I’d first planned on decorating sugar cubes with royal icing like these. But then I saw these personalized sugar cube wrappers by Alejandra from Always Order Dessert. Hooray! This would be perfect. Alejandra used tape to wrap her sugar cubes but by looking at her suggested pictures of vintage European and American sugar wrapper on flickr I experimented and figured out how to fold and wrap the sugar cubes without tape {see step-by-step folding instructions and printable PDF template below}.

Package them up with this super cool blooming tea.

OK, now read this step before you do it. Put the sugar cubes on your table with the open end towards you.

Using both hands, crease it so that it is slightly folded in. You don’t want to create a triangle like you did last time – this is more like an isosceles trapezoid and most of the design should still appear.

It should look like this.
