How to make

Ice Cream Party Bags

Step-1

Ice cream party bags: Using the circular craft punch on the coloured card, create a selection of coloured card circles. These will be your ice cream ‘scoops’ so if you wanted you could draw some sprinkles on with the Posca pens or get the birthday boy or girl help with some drawing onto them!

Step-2

Cut a tall triangle out of a yellow card to use as your cone.

Step-3

Using the white Posca paint pen you can draw diagonal lines down the cone in both directions to create the grid effect on the cone

Flag Cake Toppers: 

Step-1

Wrap a length of Washi tape around the top of the cocktail stick and fold it over to stick back on itself

Step-2

Cut a triangle in to the end of the length of Washi tape to create a flag effect

Step-3

Use different colours and lengths to create double flag toppers. These will work well for cupcakes but you could definitely make larger ones with more flags working down the stick for bigger cakes.

Step-4

Keep working along the twine to create your own garland. You could use these for tails for big helium balloons, to hang and decorate the house or even to wrap round gifts as an added touch of fun!

Sprinkle Plates

Step-1

Begin in the centre of your plate as the paint pens smudge quite easily so its better to work outwards from the centre

Step-2

Draw rectangles and colour them in at different angles to create a sprinkle effect. I found it easier to draw each sprinkle alternating the colours rather than drawing all the pink first, this way I could make sure the colours were even across the plate.

Step-3

Don’t be too worried if your rectangles aren’t all exactly the same, as long as they are all working in different directions and colours they will create the sprinkle effect

Step-4

When you’re happy with your design pop the plate in the oven for 20-40 mins on 140 degrees to bake and secure your design, this will make it washable. You could varnish your plate to make it food safe however it would be best if these are used as decorative items rather than for food.
