Cup Cakes and Bunting

Good morning to all my lovely friends and  followers. Today I'm sharing something a bit different and something I've never made before.
 When my Daughter -in Law was pregnant with Miles she attended an NCT class and made friends with a lovely group of ladies who were all expecting around the same time. The babies have all turned one just recently and  yesterday they held a joint birthday for all eight children in The Cafe in Didsbury Park .
I was asked if I could make some Cup Cake Toppers and  Bunting with pictures of the babies on. Something they had seen advertised. So a new craft talent has emerged I'm now officially a Bunting and  Cup Cake Topper maker !!! I thought you might enjoy seeing them even if its just to admire the lovely babies.

Cup Cake Topper Cake





The Bunting







I used scraps of paper and Tim Holtz card for the hats and the Pom Poms and  Ribbon are from Boyes Stores. Straws from Poundland.  I needed 8 got 250 in the pack !! The  pegs and heart trim are from my stash. I made the templates from white card. 

Finally a photo of the babies 





Well I hope you are having a good weekend and  like my new craft talent and this fun post love and  hugs Carole x
