Coffee Filter and Cup Cake Banner

Coffee filters, cup cake holders, decorative paper, ribbon,tea bags and a little imagination and you have one sweet Valentines Day Banner. I began by tea dying the paper and coffee filters to give the banner an aged look. Then, I layered the filters and cup cake holders until I was happy with the way it looked. For added interest, I trimmed some of the filters with pinking shears scissors and then stapled it all together and placed a glittered circle cut out in the middle to camouflage the staples. Then, I placed the banner on ribbon and attached the glittered letters that I found at Target in the dollar section. This project was really fun to make and it was soooo simple.


For this next project, I simply placed a ribbon around the glass cylinder of a red candle and added a sweet little vintage pin. Then, I added a paper hearts garland that I cut out of the scrap paper from the banner project. I simply strung the paper hearts on craft wire and placed it around the cylinder of the candle and it turned a simple candle into a sweet Valentines Day decoration. What I love most about these decorations is that they didn't really cost me much of anything to make and they were so fun and simple to make. Hope one of these projects inspire you to create something for yourself. Take Care!

  9. Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appearance. I must say that you've done a
    superb job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer.
    Superb Blog!
