It's February! To celebrate this brand new month, I've compiled a round-up of some of my favorite February free printables, starting with Groundhog Day of course...
This Groundhog Day card measures 5 1/2" x 4" when folded. Click here to download. Print the image (including blank space and instructions) so that it fits on to a regular sized piece of paper (cardstock is best). Enjoy!
This little music lover Valentine's Day card measures 5" x 3 1/2" when folded. Click here to download.
These are perfect for the men in your life. All you have to do is print these free valentines I whipped up and stop by your local market (or liquor store, or gas station) and you're all set! Click here for the free printable.
Last but not least, show the Roseanne fan in your life that you truly care this Valentine's Day! Click here to download.
Over the weekend I attempted my first naked cake. I'm pleased with the results and wanted to share how I did it! I found some really helpful YouTube videos that explained how to stack and frost the cake.
The video I found the most helpful was this one below. I even used Yolanda's vanilla cake recipe and it was delicious! It was nice and dense to make stacking and frosting the cake easy. You can find the vanilla cake recipe here.
The inside of my cake was filled with chocolate buttercream. I used this recipe. I just piped a little bit of vanilla buttercream on the outside because I thought it looked nicer.
I used straws as dowels and got that idea from the video below. This video is also extremely helpful.
Here is a list of the tools I used that made the whole process way easier:
Cake Pans - I used an 6" x 3" pan and an 8" x 3" pan. I made two cakes in each then cut the cakes into 2 layers. That gave me 4 6" wide layers and 4 8" wide layers. I only used 3 of each though.
It's that time of the year again! I love Halloween crafts especially when they're cheap. I got everything I needed to make this headband at Dollar Tree, aka my all time favorite store. This headband cost me just $4 to make and took less than 5 minutes. Read on to learn how to make your own!
What you'll need:
plastic headband (any color)
spiderwebs (you'll only use a little bit)
plastic spider (I got a sparkly one)
Start by wrapping the headband with the black ribbon and securing the ends with hot glue.
Now glue the spider to the top (at a slight angle).
