Tissue Paper Cupcake Wrap

Cupcake Tissue Paper 6

I was up late trying to quickly finish cupcakes for my friend’s Mint, Pink & Gold Baby Shower earlier this week. I had just designed and printed out cupcake wrappers and started to cut out the first wrap. I taped the wrap onto the cupcake and thought that it was going to take way too much time for me to finish the rest of them. I looked over at my dining room table and saw that I still had some of the gold polka dotted tissue paper laying there. Whether or not this idea is completely original, I had to try it out. I cut down the tissue paper to fit the cupcake, stuck it into a plastic cup and it looked cute and most importantly, it was going to save me lots of time!

Here’s how I did it:

I cut down my tissue paper to a 5×5 square (sizes will vary by cupcake).

Cupcake Tissue Paper

Gather the sides of the tissue paper and wrap it around the cupcake.

Cupcake Tissue Paper 2

Stick your cupcake and tissue paper wrap into the cup.

Cupcake Tissue paper 3

Ice your cupcake, making sure the icing doesn’t touch the tissue paper.

Cupcake Tissue Paper 4

Last, but not least, insert the cupcake into a candy bag and wrap it with ribbon or baker’s twine and it’s ready to be used at your next party! These were super easy and such a great time saver! Don’t be surprised if you see me using these more than once!

Mint, Pink & Gold Baby Shower + Printables

Baby-Shower-Mint-Pink-and-GoldOur good friend Rachelle (who is also an amazing photographer) is having a baby in less than 3 weeks and we wanted to throw a baby shower for her. We tried to keep it simple, and had a pancake bar that included a super delicious homemade buttermilk and strawberry syrup. Everything was delicious, and we had lots of fun celebrating Rachelle and her baby! We can’t wait to meet her little girl soon!!!

Photo Credit goes to Rachelle Packard. (I must make a side note that I did the editing on the photos, as they are nowhere close to how good Rachelle’s photography and editing skills are).

When it came to designing printables, I followed these color palettes.

Baseball Printables

Baseball Printables

It’s that time of year again – baseball season has begun. It’s the start of a brand new year, and the hope that your team will do better than the last. It’s a brand new team that has been given a clean slate. In my home, Opening Day is considered a Holiday, and we are die hard Oakland Athletics fans (I married into it). I was never a baseball fan, or a sport fan in general, and yet after 5+ years of marriage it has slowly grown on me. My husband grew up going to A’s games, and now that we have a family of our own, it’s turned into a family event. I can now say I enjoy going to baseball games, especially since both our boys love it.

I’ve slowly been turning our boy’s room into a Baseball/Oakland A’s bedroom, and I’ve finally gotten around to making some wall art for their room. If you’re family is as big a fan of baseball as we are, then you’re going to love these Baseball Printables. I’ve created two versions of the quote “Baseball isn’t just a game, it’s Life,” and “Let’s Play Ball” with a few different colors to match your favorite teams. Hope you’re enjoying the beginning of baseball season as much as we are!

Let’s go Oakland!

Easter Cupcake Toppers & Liners

Easter Cupcake Topper and Liner Display

The Cadburry Eggs make another appearance! Seriously, I have no will power when it comes to these things. They are just so good, I’d trade them in for cupcakes! đŸ™‚ Which is what I did in today’s project. I was used plain party cups (the size I used were 2 inch dia) and gave them a quick Easter “make over.” Here’s what I did.

Materials Needed:

Paper Party Cups (2 inch dia)

Tape

Side note: If you’re using regular cupcakes, download these cupcake liners in the following colors: Blue | Yellow | Green | Pink

Easter Cupcake Topper 1

1. Use these Party Cup Liner printables. Cut out your liner and make a circle.

2. Measure it around your party cup to make sure it will fit. It’s not going to be perfect on the bottom, but you won’t notice it unless you pick it up. Grab some tape and place it at the end of the liner.

3. Place some Easter Basket grass in the cup and insert your cupcake topper.

4. Strategically add your Easter Candy of choice to keep the cupcake topper standing, and you’re done!

Mini Easter Baskets – Free Printable

Mini Easter Baskets Display

I have to admit, last year was the first year I ever had a Cadbury Egg (or it had been a VERY long time since I had one) and I fell in LOVE! I have been addicted to them and have to control myself whenever I have them in my house, so as you can imagine, taking pictures of these Mini Easter Baskets was not easy. On the other hand, these Mini Easter Baskets are very easy to put together.

You can use these as part of your table setting for the “Kids Table” (or the “Adult Table”) at Easter Dinner, use them for a party favor or a little treat to pass out to friends. I’ve created 5 different colored printable baskets, or you can use your own scrapbook paper and use the Blank Mini Easter Basket printable here to print on the back. They’re a fun addition to your Easter celebration and they’re totally budget friendly.

Here’s what you’ll need:

-Printer

-Mini Easter Basket Printable (grab the downloads below)  or (blank version here)

-Glue or Double Sided Tape

-Grass for Easter Baskets

-Easter Treat

-Easter Tags (download here)

-String

This time of year is the busiest for our family as we celebrate birthdays. With March and April combined, we have a total of 8 birthdays (April being the busiest)! With these upcoming birthdays in mind, I wanted get a head start on these Cupcake Gift Tags.

These Cupcake Gift Tags are so easy to put together and look so cute on top of a birthday present. You can make these ahead of time, store them and use when a birthday has snuck up on you. My favorite thing about these Cupcake Gift Tags is you can use any type of scrapbook paper to make them gender friendly, or go perfectly with your wrapping paper! The possibilities are endless and you’re birthday boy or girl will love them (and your gift)!

Materials Needed:

Cupcake Top Printable (Blank copy here)

Cupcake Liner Printable (Blank copy here)

Scrapbook Paper

Mod Podge or Glue

Scissors

String (or bakers twine)

1 Cupcake Gift Card

Step 1: Choose your scrapbook paper of choice.

0 Cupcake Gift Tag

Step 2: Print the Cupcake Tops & Cupcake Liner printables on the back of your scrapbook paper. If your scrapbook paper doesn’t fit in your printer, you can always trace the printables onto the back of your scrapbook paper.

2 Cupcake Gift Card

Step 3: Cut out your cupcakes and match the cupcake tops with the cupcake liners.

3 Glue Cupcake Gift Tag

Step 4: Use a small amount of Mod Podge or glue on the very top of the cupcake liner and stick it onto the very bottom of the cupcake top (the curvy part of the cupcake top). When the glue is dry, punch a hole at the top and insert a piece of string, and you’re done! To really go with the theme, use some matching bakers twine instead of string.

“Be My Valentine” Cards for Boys

IMG_4195

I found out yesterday that my son’s preschool class was going to be passing out Valentine’s Day cards tomorrow. I was super excited and already had the Valentine’s Day cards I wanted to use. These ones…

Valentine's Card DisplayPrintable Valentine’s Day Cards

I had already cut the cards out when I thought to myself, “I can’t have my son pass out girly Valentines.” I already bought the hearts to go with the cards, so I looked on Pinterest to see if they had any Valentine cards that could use the hearts and be for boys. No luck. I loved all the mustache printables I found and was inspired to put mustaches and hearts together to create this cute little gem.

It was so simple and easy to put together (seriously a great last minute project!) I placed a small dot of hot glue onto the card, had my son place a chocolate heart, and we got 30 cards done! I can’t wait for him to pass them out tomorrow.

Avenger Birthday Party Printables

JD had been waiting for his birthday since Christmas was over. That may not be that long of a wait, but for an almost 4 year old that’s a long time… and it felt long for me as well, since he’d ask me every morning if it was his birthday yet. It didn’t help that his brother’s birthday was just 3 days after Christmas, my birthday was 2 weeks later, his cousin’s was a couple days after mine, and one of his good friend’s was 2 days before his. Because of this, I wanted to make sure his birthday was extra special (as it will have to be every year). He loved everything about his party, and he had a blast! It was a lot of work, but totally worth it.

Today, I’m sharing the printables I made for the party, including a couple of the ones that I didn’t have a chance to put together. If you have a little super hero in request of an Avengers Birthday party, they’re going to love these decorations! [For personal use only].
