I'm going to be honest on this one - I was skeptical about these at first. I thought they would cheapen the overall look of the cupcake. And I think some of the prints available do lean that way. But some of them are pretty fun and make the cupcakes look nicer than they otherwise would.
The suggested decorating scheme for the snowflakes print that I choose was to sprinkle the tops with coconut. There isn't a single person in my family who cares for coconut, so I just sprinkled with red sprinkles. Not very snowflakey, but they still turned out cute and I thought the cupcake sleeves really did add something extra to the cupcakes. Look:

Okay, so I could have done a better job with the icing, but that's my own problem and not one that should be associated with the cupcake sleeves...ahem.
There are many different varieties to choose from, not just Christmas ones. I think these football helmet ones are pretty fun:

They cost $8.95 per package of 12. Shipping is $2.75 for the first package and an additional $0.65 per extra. They seem a little pricey to me, but when you consider the price of store bought themed cupcakes it seems to still come under that.
