This is my last post showing you things I made for our recent Christmas in July in August party.   I promise!  Today I’m going to show you cute stuff we made to eat.

First up – some Christmas themed cupcakes!  My son and I had a ball decorating these.  He made all the red berries and painted on the water to glue the decorations to the top of the cupcakes.


Here are our holly cupcakes:

Next up – some paper wrapped chocolates!

photo-5I have seen so many blogs from the US showing papercraft ideas and presents with  Hershey’s chocolates wrapped in DSP – and I’ve always wanted to try my hand at making some of those beautiful creations.  And I don’t even like chocolate!  I was standing in line at the Reject Shop the other day – and what did I spy but some Hershey’s chocolates.  That was the first time I’ve seen them in Australia.

I ran out of time to do anything too fancy with them, but I did use up some scraps of old Jolly Holly DSP I had lying around to make them pretty Christmas chocolates.   I cut strips 3cm x 7.5cm.  This meant you could still see the foil and a little of the wrapper.  Next time I’d probably do 3.5 x 7.5cm.   7.5 cm is a really handy length as you can cut four pieces from a single strip from a 12 x 12 ” sheet of DSP.

Now that I know you can get these in Australia I might have to revisit some of those blog posts!

Thanks for reading this one 🙂
