Keeping It Simple

This past week my daughter turned one. While party planning is fun and exciting, it can also be stressful. I decided a few months ago that the ‘cake’ for her party would be cupcakes. I needed just a little something for the topper and Shimmerz Vibez came to my rescue. I absolutely love how the topper turned out and thought that display was perfect with the Shimmerz accents.

I started with a journaling chipboard piece from my stash. I spritz Razzle Dazzle Berry on it with two coats. Then I mounted the Thickers and hot glued a skewer to the back. That’s it! Simple, simple, simple – yet adorable and a perfect addition to her party table.

Using the same technique as above, I also created a sign for the party favors (pictured here in the background).
