it's all about the presentation

in my last post i talked about my house being the crafters version of hoarders. i have recently become very into ribbon and matching stickers. this probably seems pretty juvenile seeing as i am a almost 26 year old woman, but the stickers make great gift tags. i've never been a fan of huge gift tags that dangle around ribbon, i think it takes away from the elegance.

any time i am going to visit someone or even if i just feel like surprising someone with a sweet treat, i pull out my wilton cupcake boxes that i picked up at michael's with my 50% off coupon (if you haven't already downloaded the phone app, do it now, i save a ton of money!), a colorful ribbon that matches the person i am delivering too and of course a matching monogrammed sticker to address the box.

see my examples below.

boxes - pack of 3 $4.99 at michael's
ribbon - 1 spool $2.99
stickers - 1 pack $2.99
total price = $11.00/plus tax
but if you use your handy dandy michael's coupon you can save up to 50%

until next time...happy baking xoxo

Aww thanks love! That makes me happy that you're happy!!! omg social media buttons! that's the one thing I had to have a friend do for me. I was lost on creating these things! But there are so many youtube videos out there that might be able to help! P.S forgot to say that I love the blog name change! I can see it now on the sign of a bakery... :)
