I'm Teaching a Class!


Would you like to learn how to make paper and ribbon bunting and picnic-inspired cupcake toppers for your summer parties?  If you're in the Leavenworth, Kansas area and would like to join me and Sheila Rumney for some papercrafting picnic-y and polka-dotty fun, call or drop by The Peacock Cafe (phone:  913-651-9914) to register today!

The class registration, materials and instruction fee is $30.  Participants will make and take party bunting and a set of cupcake toppers.  Don't be surprised if you use these party items as templates for other celebrations and holidays throughout the year: 4th of July, birthdays, weddings, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, Valentine's, Easter... the possibilities are endless!

Please bring scissors (for cutting paper) and a low temp glue gun and sticks.  I'll provide the paper, ribbon, buttons, fabric, lollipop sticks and instructions!

Hope to see you soon (June 18, 2011 to be exact!),

Cake/Cupcake Toppers

With only nine days left in the school year (I'm a full time kindergarten teacher), I've had little time to hole up in the crafty nook to play with paper to my heart's content.  Thankfully, these little accordion-folded rosettes (or do they look more like prize ribbon medallions?) are quick to whip up and glue onto lollipop sticks:


Topping cakes and cupcakes, they bring  lollipoppy or pinwheel-ey fun to traditional party desserts!

June 18 is the date for my Polka Dots and Picnics Bunting and Cupcake Topper crafty class!  You'll be able to reserve your spot soon through The Peacock Cafe for $30, and you'll need to make sure you bring a glue gun/low-temp melt glue sticks, sharp scissors and a smile!  You'll leave with party bunting and cupcake toppers to complete your next picnic or summer party:


Three cheers for summertime fun!

Happy May Day!

They might not be May flowers brought about by April showers, but these cupcake toppers are certain to bring sunshine to any celebratory summer party!

I do hope the special young lady they were made for has a ~fabulous~ eighth birthday later this week!
