Radiant Orchid Cupcake Circles

<a href="">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

Its no secret I love using to design, 
well whatever I want.
Upload a swatch of your colour of choice-
I went with Pantone's colour (or color for Americans) of 2014
Radiant Orchid
And use the colour picker to match that swatch.

Or print off these ones- 
I promise to make more to choose from soon.

Once you print them off, 
tape the tip of a toothpick to the back of each circle
You can hide the tip of the toothpick either 
by cutting out circles from cardstock or 
printing out an extra copy of the cupcake circles 
and glue them to the back. 
Now you can stick those suckers into your cupcakes.

Dresser Drawer Makeover

This dresser/change table was handmade and 
has been in my family for some time so I wanted to keep it,
but it was in rough shape

First I cleaned it and then pulled out the old contact paper-
there was a reason that contact paper was on there!

I scanned and printed some book pages and 
used Peter Rabbit postcards 

Once I arranged them the way I wanted 
I measured out how much contact paper I would need.
Use clear contact paper to hold the pages and postcards in place.

Follow the directions on the contact paper, but ye be warned
it is frustrating getting all the air pockets out.
Whatever the design, use glossy paper 
because it may take a few tries getting the contact paper how you want it and if you use regular paper it may rip. 

 PS. contact paper does not photograph well
but looks great in real life
