Between friends and family we have three birthdays this week (including mine!). So, for the third week of #52crafts, I decided on cake decorating. This cute tassel decor from Creativebug looked simple enough.
The cake is Smitten Kitchen (of course). It is good and the frosting is not too sour at all. The decorations are ginger crisp cookies cut out with cutters from Ikea. Candles by Oscar :)
And since I had a few spare minutes I painted gift wrap inspired by this Creativebug class. I used paper grocery bags and black paint because the gift inside was black shoe polish. Doesn't every 13 year old want black shoe polish? They do if they're in Civil Air Patrol and really conscientious about polished shoes.
I was a total skeptic about online video craft instruction but I'm finding it really fun to scroll through the various classes at Creativebug and just try stuff. Makes for fun (creative) Fridays.
