I love the polka dot parade paper. I did predict on video recently that I may have become slightly addicted to it, and these images prove that to be right!
And who doesn’t love the bright sunny colours of skittles?!
With having 4 children, it can sometimes feel like we’re preparing for or attending a birthday party all the time. Even preparing afternoon tea at home is only just shy of most birthday tea parties! So, it’s now almost instinctive to make little treats and goodies for my boys, but I’m not hugely keen on overloading them with sugary stuff. Please don’t get me wrong, I’m not a saint, and I absolutely will give the boys sweets, but I had a big bag of skittles, the 245g bag and decided that rather than splitting it 6 ways, I’d see if I could make it go further.
These treat cups used up a little under half a bag, so most definitely they went further.
And in conversation with my husband who said they looked fabulous, his instant thought was for wedding favours. And he’s right. They don’t have to be filled with sweets, one of my downline makes wax crumbs for tart burners to scent your house. Some of those would look fabulous in one of these cups. Or a miniature soap? Perhaps even a lottery ticket that had been beribboned?
So the possibilities are endless, but we very much enjoyed our ‘Friday-afternoon-favours’ and for me it is lovely that my whole family get involved in experimenting, experiencing and idea creating with me.
