In this tutorial I will be using Illustrator to make a cupcake wrapper design for a baby shower, but you can create designs for any special occasion once you know how, be it a holiday, birthday, or a day to say "congratulations!" I'll start with a template, then use a variety of tools, such as the Ellipse tool, Rectangle tool, Scissors tool, Line tool, Arc tool, Scale tool, and Rotation tool. I'll also add color using the Color Picker, and add type to a curved path.

To follow along, right-click to download a template and open it in Illustrator. Once it is open, choose File > Save as, and save the template with a new name. This will preserve the template for future use.
