Wrapping a cupcake.

Few days back,when we had the school carnival, I volunteered to bake cupcakes for the bake sale. Baking was no problem, but  all baked stuff needed to be individually wrapped for the sale and that was the problem. How do I wrap 50+ cupcakes!!. I didn't have time to go shopping and as it is those cupcake boxes I have bought in the past are not really cheap, specially if you need so many.

I searched online and found lot of ideas of wrapping cupcakes. But the one I liked and that was really inexpensive and with the things I already had with me was to use clear plastic cups. The idea was to put the cupcakes in the clear cups and wrap it with clear plastic sheet and tie with ribbon. But I dreaded cutting all that wrapping paper to wrap each cupcake. So I used the fold down sandwich bags and that worked just as well. No need of cutting 50+ wrapping paper squares.

Paper dress

I am loving this paper dress. Use it in cards or scrapbook. Or make a few and clip them to a string to make a garland for a shower or any party.

Below are the instructions with pictures. In the pictures below, don't be confused when the color of the paper changes...:)  I was making the first one and taking pictures along the way. But later on going through the pictures, I realized I missed taking pictures of some of the steps I wanted. So started to make another one, but then some of the pictures came out blurry. So I had to mix the pictures in the instructions..:(

Wine Cork Letters

I have seen different projects using wine corks and have been collecting wine corks for sometime. I had finally managed to have enough to make a project and decided on making letters with it. And this is what I came up with.

Happy Valentines!!

This year for valentine class gift/card exchange, we gave tattoos. I found this adorable 'love' tattoo boxes at target and thought it was great for giving out to friends.

I printed these sayings which I thought was appropriate with tattoos...'I'm stuck on you', 'Stick with me Valentine' and 'I'll stick with you Valentine' on plain Word document. Cut the sayings out and tied it with a ribbon. It looked quite plain on a plain printer paper, maybe I should have printed on red paper. But this is what I had, so ended up just coloring the top and bottom with red pen. That's red enough I think..:)

Cardboard Dollhouse

I made this doll house few months back. I made it with one of the packaging boxes from Amazon. It was a nice recycling project, which was fun to make and turned out pretty nice. I tried furnishing the house and as you can see made a dresser and stove too. I did add other pieces too - made sofa and a bed. And then my little helpers took it over. They colored on the walls and also the furniture. But this is how it looked before the little interior designers took over.
