As I have admitted recently, I love baking cupcakes! I love their individual proportions, the ability to decorate each one individually and I love using my extensive collection of paper liners. This week I have been playing with making little colourful flags to decorate them with.
I took some cardstock, some double sides tape, and some little wooden toothpicks. I cut the card into 1 inch x 3 inch pieces, which I folded in half, and then inserted a little toothpick and then adhered it together with double sided tape. So quick but very effective. I then inserted them into my white chocolate mudcake cupcakes and voila!
A friend and I have decided to get together at least every 3 months for a craft morning. We had our inaugural crafty morning last week and made lots of greeting cards. Here are some of my favourites!
I recently came across this seam guide recently – such a useful little gadget as it magnetizes to the base plate of the sewing machine to create a guide for sewing. It is especially useful for beginner sewers, children, or the visually challenged. I think I have gotten my $3 worth out of it already! Sarah can’t wait to try it out.
I had a few enquiries on where I got my Japanese craft magazine pictured in the previous post. I found this great eBay seller who has an extensive collection of gorgeous craft magazines. She has displayed plenty of pictures out of each issue so it makes it easier to browse. She also has an etsy shop.
