DIY Muffin Liners Tutorial Video


Parchment paper – Use any parchment paper either brown or white colour. I have used 10×10 inches square parchment paper.

Measuring tape or ruler

Scissors – You can even use a ruler or a knife to cut the paper.

Object that fits inside each muffin cup (a glass or can) – Get hold of any object like glass, can or tin goods, that fits well into the base (cavity) of each muffin cup. For making these liners I used my individual muffin cup which fits exactly in my muffin tray.


I used 10×10 inches parchment paper. Out of which I got four 5 inches square parchment paper. Fold the parchment paper from the center. Again fold them to form 5 inches square.

Now with a scissor or knife cut the papers though the folds so you get 4 peices square paper.

Placing the object base in the center of the parchment square, wrap the parchment around the object and make necessary folds to form the cup and forming creases around the bottom to really mold it into the shape you need.

Transfer muffin liner to muffin tin. I like to place the liner along with the object so that it firmly set it in place and hold their form better.

Voila! You have homemade tulip style muffin cups. That’s it! Grab some muffin or cupcake recipes. Fill it up with your favourite muffin batter and bake as as directed in the recipe!


● Use any parchment paper or baking paper to make this liners.

● Run your finger or thumbnail around the object and base of the object to make a strong crease in the parchment.

● Press your hand firmly along the parchment against the can to set the creases of the parchment.
