Today is my friend Linda's birthday. Last week when I saw her I gave her a little surprise. It's a zero calorie birthday cake. Not my original idea I must add - you know I'm a great copycat! I saw the original here. It is really simple like a real cake - as long as you have all the right ingredients. Personalizing with your own creative flair is always welcome!
You will need a battery operated tea light (you can get 2 in a package for $1 at the Dollar Tree). You'll need some pretty papers, flower and leaf punches and the SU exclusive Flower Folds Die. The link above has a great tutorial.
No cake would be complete without it's own little bakery box. This I will take credit for. I used some Sahara Sand cs and made a little 1 1/2 x 2 box pattern. Gave it a band of coordinated dsp and a ribbon and added some more punched flowers and leaves to the top.
I love this project!!! It's cute, inexpensive, and can help you use up scraps of all that beautiful paper you have from your cardmaking or scrapbooking.
Oh, and by the way - HAPPY BIRTHDAY LINDA!!!
