If you follow my other blog, you might have seen the cupcake bouquet I made recently for my friend. To make this, I had to get a few supplies from hobbycraft. As soon as I enter the store I lose all control, but I'd told myself that I was here specifically for supplies for that project, and no extras (I decided July was "essential spends only" month). Unfortunately, I saw a whole load of shiny sticky paper rolls for just 20p each, and whilst I had no particular project in mind, I knew it would come in handy at some point.
For the cupcake bouquet I needed lolly sticks, but instead of getting the small packet, I got 1000 lolly sticks. It made sense really, as they were practically the same price and you can do tonnes of things with lolly sticks right? As it turned out, I didn't even use any of the lolly sticks, so now I need to think up a good project for them. But yay for more stash!
