Let's Eat Cake- Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello and good morning!

I am so excited to be participating today in the Little Tangles Birthday Blog Hop!  Neat and Tangled is celebrating its first birthday this month and to celebrate we are having a Let's Eat Cake blog hop.  You should have arrived here from Suzanne Dahlberg's blog. If not, check out the Little Tangles blog for the full hop order.

With all this cake happening on the blog hop today, I thought, what goes better with cake than a cold glass of milk?  And if the milk can be drunk through cupcake adorned straws, all the better!

I paper-pieced the cupcake from Sketchy Cupcakes onto scalloped circles.  I attached the scalloped circles to paper straws with foam tape. The patterned papers are from Dear Lizzy's Lucky Charm 6 x 6 paper pad.

I also made a little card to match the straws:
