For Valentine’s Day a few blogger friends, The Cheerio Diaries and The Pampered Baby, and I got together with our daughter’s to plan a styled Valentine’s photo shoot. While getting everything together and gathering our thoughts the night before we realized that we didn’t have a cake topper. We chatted back and forth and then I thought of the idea of putting together a mini tassel garland cake topper to match the tassel garland we had for decor from Fun Fiestas by Ili.

I brought the tassel garland cake topper home because I wanted to share how easy this was to make! Follow the simple steps and you can put together for your next event in no time.

How to make a Tassel Garland Cake Topper

Materials:

  • Decorative paper straws
  • Tissue paper
  • Twine
  • Scissors

Step One: Cut up your tissue into three inch long tassels. I made nine groups of three strands of tissue for the garland. Create as many to your liking to fill the length of your desired garland.

Step Two: With your tassels in groups of three place each tassel above the other and then twist together in the middle of the tissue. Twist about a half an inch length. Fold in half and then twist the two sides together until they are secure. Leave a little loop at the top to thread your twine through the tassels.

Step Three: One by one thread on the tassels, either creating a pattern with the colours or at random, and wiggle the tissue around until it forms and lies to your liking. Add on all of the twisted tassels until your garland is complete.

Step Four: Tie the ends of your twine around the straw and fasten either by a knot, glue or tap. I have hidden my ends behind the hearts on the Valentine’s inspired straws created by Dixie and Twine.

  • We got crafty and turned our Nesquik container into a monster piggy bank! Ezra sure had fun getting crafty, I got to sit back and watch 😊. Of course I tried to be a funny mom by shaking his monster’s hand 😊. Our time crafting was also enjoyed with a healthy snack of fruit!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We are hoping that we inspired you to get creative too! See a little behind the scenes of our creation in my stories and then head to the Nesquik Imagination contest to submit your craft creation for your chance to win 1 of 4 $500 prize packs. We've got a full summer ahead of us and I'm sure some of you mama's are looking for something to do, so here it is! PS go ahead and take our piggy bank idea as the starting point for your contest entry. Good luck!⁠⠀

  • @Breyers Delights just launched three new flavours including Vanilla Cupcake, Caramel Brownie and Raspberry Fudge, and they are the perfect reward after a long day’s work. I've been working hard on living a healthier lifestyle and exercising more but I think it's also important to find balance and indulge in delicious treats every now and then.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Made with high quality ingredients and only 80-90 calories per serving (125 ml), @Breyers delights gives me the delicious taste I've been craving. Visit the link in my bio to learn more about the new flavours and try them out for yourself! #Breyers #BreyersPartner #Ad
  • Each issue I contribute to @ilikeherstylevancouver’s magazine and every single time it’s SO HARD to keep it a secret about what I’m about to share.

I teamed up with @lisa.pineda.fit to put together some morning stretches to start your day on a positive note. I am IN LOVE with the feature, would love it if you grabbed an issue or checked it out online, also swipe right to see two of the cutest photos of Evelyn and my mom stretching it out that @juliechristinephotography snapped just as we were getting started (I may have given them matching hairstyles too )
  • This is the first summer where I haven't worried about having all the kids home, the no naps and everyone potty trained has definitely helped with that!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I also know that having ALL THE SNACKS on hand when we head out for adventures is KEY! Summer Days is back at @shell which means you get 10 Bonus AIR MILES when you buy any 2 snacks or 2 drinks. Next weekend is the FIRST weekend this summer we actually don't have plans!!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Give us some ideas, what's your favourite Summer activity or destination?⁠⠀

  • The other week @lovinglittlesblog and I were invited to participate in a black box cooking competition put on by @whitespot_restaurants and @eatdrinkbuybc in support of a charity of our choice. We competed against 8 other teams and created a pecan crusted chicken stuffed with goat cheese and fresh local blueberries. You guys.... it was GOOOOOD! But, there were lots of amazing dishes created that afternoon and even though we didn't win we were still able to donate $200 to the charity of our choice, @bcwomens.

Fun fact: White Spot and Triple O's serve more than 49,000 pounds of fresh blueberries in their menu items, all from local farmers across BC. That's a lot of blueberries and a lot of local love! Starting today blueberries have returned to all White Spot and Triple O's locations but are only available for a limited time while Mother Nature allows. We got to try their fresh BC blueberry milkshake and fresh BC blueberry pie this afternoon, still drooling.
