It's Time to Party w/ Cookies, Cupcakes, and Ice Cream!

Are you ready for a party???  This is a little project I put together for a party we had at our house.  We have used it to decorate cookies & cupcakes, and we have used it for ice cream toppings for banana splits.  The teens in this house LOVE it :)  They can decorate their own cupcakes & cookies, or add their own special toppings to their ice cream. 

I started with a See & Store magnetic stand (someone had given it to me and it had been sitting around in its box for quite a while.  Glad I FINALLY found a use for it!) and flipped it over on its side.
Then I added some fun scrapbook papers, ribbon, and bling to it.
I found some small spoons (the kind like they give you an ice cream sample with) and I punched a hole in the top of each of them.  Added some ribbon and a jewel.
I took one of the plastic containers and cut a slot out of the top so that the spoons could slide down into it.
Then I filled the containers with all kinds of sprinkles and toppings.
I took a clear plastic container and added some embellishments to it.  Then I tied a ribbon to the tops of the frosting tubes and put them into the container.
VOILA!  We are now ready to party!  Now all we need are some cupcakes and some cookies :)
I am BLOG HOPPING HERE this week.
I am LINKING UP HERE this week.

CraftyMummy said...

This is such a cute idea! I love the ribbons on the icing tubes to tie them into the other decorations.

Elisabeth said...

This is so cute. Two questions, what did you use to drill the holes in the spoons as well as the top of the lids?

Also, where do you get the See & Store magnetic stands? I've seen them used to scrapbooking supplies and I thought that was a great idea, too.

Lori@ Paisley Passions said...

Elisabeth, the See & Store containers were given to me, but they sell them at craft stores. Michaels, Hobby Lobby, those types of places :) I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch the holes in the tops of the spoons. Hope that helps!

Sachiko said...
