What's a party without cupcakes, right!?? Isn't this a cute little mini party! I made a balloon flag "centerpiece" and cupcake topper flags. This was so much fun. The hubster loves it when I do 3D projects because they often times involve food, generally sweets, and he gets to eat them after I get all my blog pics. He enjoys it so much that if he questions anything "extra" that goes in the shopping cart on grocery day I just tell him "it's props" and he doesn't bat an eye. HAHAHA!! But I digress....let's get this party started, shall we. :)

Happy Birthday flag using large tag die


Cupcake picks using Chocolate Greetings flag die, curly label die and stitched curly label die.

 



I love the idea of individual 'cakes' so I came up with this fun little idea for cupcakes. {Which I later saw on a baking blog and thought to myself how clever I am for doing this all on my own! LOL} This is great if you have a kids' party and have leftovers to send home. This makes it easier for transport without it getting too awfully squished along the way. 

Gusset bag mini-tutorial:
Also, if you don't have gusset bags, you can easily make your own from flat bags. This works especially well with long bags as this will leave room for tying ribbon to close the top. 

Add a piece of double sided tape along the bottom of the bag, on just one side, end to end. (fig 1)
fig 1 

Remove the liner from the tape and fold up a couple of inches - the higher you fold, the bigger the bottom of the bag will be - press to adhere. (fig 2)
fig 2 

Open up the bag and flatten the bottom. (fig 3) It's not easy to see here as the bag is clear, but I've added arrows to the photo to show the bottom....hopefully that helps you 'get' how it will look.

And there you have it! If you aren't excited about this hop by now, I don't know what to do with you!! Hahaha!! If you started at the beginning you will have arrived here from Ruthie's blog are right on track. Up next is Tracy.

We also have a guest designer joining us today--our former teamie, Trell came to our party!! YAY! So happy to have you with us today, Mr. Trell!!
