Did you see last month’s DIY Paper Net Garland post? This cut paper garland  is a variation on them. Make these springy hanging garlands with just paper, glue, and scissors! Wouldn’t they be fun hanging in a doorway at your next party?

Shamrock Money Cakes

by Kathleen Ballos

Have you ever had a money cake? My grandma used to make them for us when we were kids – she’d wrap coins in wax paper and hide them in the icing layer of our birthday cakes. When you ate your slice, you would always hope for lots of coins! This Saint Patrick’s Day, I thought it would be fun to use chocolate coins instead and hide them under shamrock toppers on these miniature cakes. So simple, but what a fun surprise!

And did you know Carnival Day is this Wednesday? These hats would look darling with this DIY carnival cake topper!

Matchbox Birthday Card

by Kathleen Ballos

I love including a little treat in with birthday cards. Usually the treats have to be flat (like stickers or temporary tattoos) but not for this birthday card! Repurpose an empty matchbox into a unique birthday card with a fun surprise inside! Paired with a homemade cupcake, wouldn’t this be the sweetest gift ever?

Paper Net Garland DIY

by Kathleen Ballos

Aren’t vintage craft books the best? Some of the projects can be a bit outdated but you can find some real gems as well! This garland was inspired by Christmas tree decorations in an old Girl Scout craft book that I was thrilled to get my hands on. They’re so easy to whip up and you likely already have all the supplies.
