Head over to our blog for recipes and more about our group.
Paper Cake ...
I made this Paper Cake for the take home treat. The cake is made from 12 slices of paper cake treat boxes. To make the cake slices I used the cake-slice template from the Better Homes and Gardens website. I enlarged the template and then printed each cake slice on Christmas theme scrap booking paper and tied a ribbon around each slice.
Covered Button Bookmarks ....
Inside each cake-slice the ladies received a hershey kiss and a fabric covered button bookmark / jumbo clip. My daughter and I made these bookmarks together.
I purchased the jumbo paperclips and my daughter and I made the fabric buttons using various Christmas fabrics and a Dritz Cover Button Kit Size 45. We attached the fabric covered buttons onto the jumbo paperclips using Evercoat Epoxy Glue (I'm sure you could using something else, such as, Gorilla glue, etc.).
