On Saturday morning I was informed by my love that Zavian had a birthday party to attend that day. He had known all week but had forgotten to mention anything to me! I am not a great baker, but I can whip up a nice vanilla cupcake without much of problem.

I was just thinking how could I make them look a little more snazzy - then it occurred to me that I could easily make little flags using just washi tape and a hand-full of toothpicks... Super quick and too easy! Just wrap the washi tape around your toothpick and cut out the decorative ribbon shapes at the end. 

It could be a handy trick to have up your sleeve for your next cupcake decorating dilemma...

  2. What a great little idea. The washi tape would also make good bunting strung between two skewers on a cake.

  6. I'm sure MacGyver could do lots with some washi tape and a toothpick but nothing as pretty as your invention! Lovely ;-)
