Cakes and Confetti...


Just stopped by to share my Valentine's day makes. So boring making cards for men, no pink, no ribbon, no lace.  To relieve the total boredom, I filled my heart with a confetti pocket.  So easy to make, just punch holes in co-ordinating papers to create the confetti.  I used a two hole punch, the office kind. 


Sandwich the confetti between two sheets of transparent film and stitch around the edges so it can't  escape.  Then attach the pocket inside the card.

I made some chocolate cupcake hearts too, using a little trick I picked up on Pinterest. 



Use marbles to make heart shape cupcakes with a regular pan.


it works too!
