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:
And one of our snowflake cupcakes:
Next up – some paper wrapped chocolates!
I 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 🙂
