One of my favorite things ever? Giving gifts! Especially a pretty one! My friends and I are always giving each other little doo dads when we meet up, it’s so fun! You never know what kind of treasures you’re going to come home with! Even if it’s the smallest trinket, it’s a really nice way of showing someone you love them. That’s why little bags come in so handy! It only takes a little magic to make a small gift seem super special 😉 Let me show you!
There are so many little bits & pieces in the Cake For Breakfast Kit! A whole pack of ephemera, a whole pack of tags, sequins, ribbon, etc! Makes it super easy to create fun little gift bags!
I have this thing with fussy cutting… I’ve always been kind of obsessed… so when I saw this sprinkly cake on a cake plate ? Yeahhh. I couldn’t look at the paper anymore until I cut it out lol! Weirrrddo!!
There’s something about book paper that adds so much interest to a project, I just love it! Especially when it’s got yummy recipes on it!
It doesn’t take much to add some details, just take a few pretties, layer them, then clip them on! I like to just clip things on instead of gluing them because the recipient might want to use the goodies later on!
I always forget how cute dry embossing is?! It can take your glassine bag over the top! Then fold cupcake wrappers over for the win!
Are you giving someone a necklace or something small? Stick it in a cupcake wrapper and tuck it neatly down into a handmade envelope! It keeps it safe, and adds some cute texture and ruffles!
Do you have a gift bag that you want to jazz up a little bit? Grab some streamers, a slice of paper, and your Glossy Accents…
Lay a bead of glue across the middle of the paper strip like this;
Carefully start at the end, working your way to the other end, adding streamer and scrunching in the middle at the same time.
Pretty soon you have a beautiful ruffle! If you’re feeling frisky, do a double decker! Don’t forget to fluff when you’re thru! If you’re feeling EXTRA frisky, put something pretty in the middle of your ruffle, like some sequins or trim!
Then embellish as desired! Umm if I received this gift I wouldn’t even want to open it!
If you wanted to make me a cake like this, I wouldn’t be mad…
If you’d like to get your hands on some the yumminess you see here… hop on over to the store and
