Eat Me Cake and Food Toppers – Free Template

26 Feb

I’ve been busy this week making and designing all sorts of things for a Mad Hatters Tea Party I’m attending in April (I’ll keep you posted on everything we make!!). Today I’ve made some Eat Me Cake and Food Toppers so I though I’d share them with you and include some free templates if anyone fancied having a go (templates attached at the bottom of this blog). If anyone has any Mad Hatter Tea Party ideas I’d love to hear them, you can also take a look at my pinterest board to see where I’ve been getting my inspiration!

I managed to get the swirl shape of the flag by using doubled sided tape and rolling the cocktail stick along the flag.

Origami Fortune Cookie in a Mini Take Out Box

13 Feb

origami fortune cookies and mini take out boxWell here is my very own handmade valentine gift….An Origami Fortune Cookie in a Mini Take Out Box!! I’m using mine as a valentine gift with a personal message but I think it could be used and decorated for all sorts of occasions such as weddings, birthdays, new year or it can even be used as a mini jewellery gift box. I found a template for the take out box at Mirkwood Designs, you will find lots of box templates that you can use for all your handmade crafting needs on there. I was going to create a tutorial to make an origami fortune cookie but I’ve found two great examples that helped me: 1. HP Fortune Cookie Tutorial 2.Origami Fortune Cookies from The Pretty Blog, both come with free templates you can use!!
