I just got a cricut cake and I know that I can get additional blades and mats so that I can use it to cut paper as well. I'm wondering if it would be cheaper in the long run (time, paper, electricity, wear and tear on the machine) to make my own pretty cupcake wrappers, or to just buy them in bulk online for about $0.60 which seems to be the going rate for basic wrappers.

Any thoughts on the cost/benefit?

0.60 a piece? I have the cricut expression and the cupcake wrapper cartridge which has so many options. I can make 4 - 5 wrappers on a 12x12 piece of card stock for about 0.60 (depending on the type of paper). Definitely cheaper if you make your own and more options to offer clients.

I guess I was thinking that making 50-100 wrappers for a wedding might be too much wear on the machine- I don't want to burn it out on these.

i think it's a pain in the butt to make a lot of them. if it's a couple dozen, sure i'll suffer through it, but i can't imagine having the patience to make more than that.
