If I had a F.A.Q corner this one might be the most frequently asked question by email from babalisme readers: "How do I create a professional looking, coordinating party decoration without spending much money/creating much DIY crafts?".
Fair enough, I think, most of party decorations demolished or even perished/lost/damaged in less than 12 hours after the party started. So, no one wants to really invest much time or money or effort in creating decorations, right? You know how fast party balloons gone? They're quite affordable, thankfully. But here is a little trick to boost extra "oooomphs" and generate extra "aaaawwws" to your party without breaking any bank account: Use cupcake topper ANYWHERE. Yes, I mean it, anywhere. These little dudes are usually easy to make and affordable as well. And..they are so versatile in terms of shapes and wording they can be used anywhere. Here are some of my ideas :
the cupcake topper "modeled" here is free, get it here if you haven't.
I may set the font too small to read so here are what's actually written there :
- as a cupcake topper, doh!
- as a party garland
- as a favor tag
- as a lunchbag name tag
- as a lollipop or party straw label
Do you have any ideas on how to make your cupcake toppers work real hard at a party? Or even after the party? Do share with us!
