And totally 'do-able' with any home printer, too - don't ya think? I sure as heck wouldn't pay for them - I'd make em! LOL

I have seen these and think they are so cute. They are just a bit pricey.

If you check the templates section at this site, they have some simple cupcake sleeve patterns you can print out.

Those are really different. I love the hamburger one. Thanks for sharing the link.

Where can I find the templates at instead of purchasing them? I think the pirate templates are adorbable but a bit pricey. What would you suggest as to making them stick. I was thinking of just putting a little buttercream frosting on the end. If I printed them out on a regular printer would it be safe to eat? I think that's why they are so expensive at the Roundabout website.

Hi PartyCake and welcome to CC. I am sure you will become addicted as the rest of us are icon_smile.gif

I make these cupcake wrappers all the time. This is the template I use:

Thanks to dynee

I print it on regular computer paper, wax it with a piece of wax paper, cut them out, and use double face tape to stick the ends together.

They never touch the cupcake, as you bake in a regular cupcake case, so using regular printer ink is fine. You can usually get four on one piece of paper. I use PrintShop 23 for my designs.

To wax the paper, which I do after the wrappers are printed, set your iron on a low setting, take a piece of wax paper about the size of your computer paper and iron it onto the wrong side of the wrappers. The wax paper does not stick, but leaves the wax. I think it helps somewhat to keep greasy spots from the icing.

You could also use scrapbooking papers.

Here are some cupcakes using one of the wrappers I designed:


Hope this helps, sorry it is so long, feel free to pm me if you have questions.

These are cute and they are cheaper than many other cupcakes wrappers I've seen. I'd happily pay for them instead of taking the time (which translates into payroll expense) to make them.

I will buy some scrapbooking paper today and try it out. I will be making Pirate Cakes and will see if I could find some Pirate paper and determine if it looks better than the Roundabout sleeves. If not, it might be worth the investment to buy the Roundabout ones. I have looked on the Internet and this is the only company that sells creative looking ones.
