Cute Easter Cake Toppers

It doesn’t have to be all about the chocolate eggs this Easter. There are plenty of other yummy sweets that you can dress up with an Easter twist! Here are two quick ideas…

1. Decorate some bunny rabbit cut-outs with fabric tape, attach to toothpicks and pop them on top of home-made cupcakes or muffins. Tie some natural string around the base to finish it off. So cute!

2. Create miniature flags with Easter themed washi tape, then add them to your sweet treats for a little bit of fun. This is a quick and easy option for when you don’t have much time on your hands. Just cut a strip of washi tape to double the length of your flag, fold the tape in half around the top of your toothpick, and cut a “V” at the end. Done! And looking fabulous!

With just under 2 weeks ’til Easter, we hope your Easter projects are coming along nicely!

3 Easy Ways to Decorate your Notebooks

With the new school year just a few weeks away, we thought we’d share a few ideas on how to decorate your notebooks to inspire creativity and eager learning for 2015!

1. First up is the super quick and easy spine option. Just add a few strips of Fabric Sticker or Washi Tape to spruce up the spine of your books. If you have a few notebooks that are similar, then this is a great way to “colour-code” your books for your different subjects.

2. Second option is to create a cute design for your cover. Using a mix of Fabric Tape, Fabric Sticker and Washi Tape go crazy with shapes, colours and patterns.

3. The third option is full coverage. If you’re not particularly fond of the design already on your notebooks, then this is the technique for you! You can either use a single design or mix it up with a few complementing designs. Here are a few examples using our A4 Fabric Stickers to completely cover the outside of your books. You can also add a little strip of Fabric Tape to write the subject or content of your book for easy reference.

Of course you don’t actually have to be going back to school as a reason to cover your books with prettiness. Whether you are looking to start a journal, create a new recipe book, or maybe sketch in your spare time, any of your books can be decorated for creative inspiration!

Project : Christmas Napkin Rings & Placecards by Fiona Michelon

Christmas Napkin Rings & Placecards by Craft Hunter for Dailylike

Christmas Napkin Rings & Placecards by Craft Hunter for Dailylike

Christmas Napkin Rings & Placecards by Craft Hunter for Dailylike

Skill level
Beginner

Supplies needed:
– 1 x set of Fabric Tape in Afresh
– 1 x set of Fabric Stickers in Afresh
– 1 x Beige Twine
– 1 x Dailylike Lace DL06
– Fresh flowers
– Fabric napkins
– Small gift boxes
– Hole punch
– Metal napkin rings (optional)
– Pencil and Scissors

I love the idea of staying away from the traditional Christmas styles and just making a beautiful, homely entertaining space that feels really special for the festive season. With a combo of soft greens, fabric textures and fresh flowers you can make a space that still has a Christmas vibe, but will have your guests talking about your dinner party for years to come.

The trick is to choose just a few colours or patterns and stick with just those in a variety of applications. The end result will look really interesting but still uniformed thanks to the repeated colour scheme.

Mix a combo of fresh flowers and fake fabric leaves for a really pretty look.

Instructions:

Step 1
Sketch out some leaf shapes onto the back of your green fabric sticker and cut them out with scissors. For these green leaves, leave a tab shape that’s approx. 1cm at the bottom of the leaf. Repeat these steps with some extra leaves in the floral and grid pattern stickers too but just cut these with a rounded bottom. Punch a hole in the bottom of these coloured leaves.

Step 2
Use your Fabric Tape to decorate some plain linen napkins. Cut some mini triangles to decorate the bottom, and for others just apply a solid strip of tape across the bottom.
It can look really beautiful with mixed patterns in a similar colour scheme so have fun with it!

Step 3
Now it’s time to put your napkin rings together. I tried two different styles:

– Style A
Cut some fresh flowers and tie them together with your twine leaving 15cm of twine either side of the knot. Use this twine to tie your napkin in the middle.
Remove the backing area of the tab shape on your green leaves and stick these to place amongst your flowers.
Tie a piece of lace around the twine too and finish with a simple knot.

– Style B
Place your metal napkin ring onto your napkin. Cut some fresh flowers and tuck them in behind the napkin ring.
Remove the backing area of the tab shape on your green leaves and stick these to place amongst your flowers.

Step 4
Use your remaining fabric stickers to decorate some mini gift boxes and use them as a favour box / place card.
The fabric stickers come with a brown paper backing which you can actually use to create little name tags. Punch a hole in the top and thread it on some twine along with your coloured leaves and tie it around your gift box.

Step 5
Use the twine to tie a pretty bow around your cutlery too.

Getting ready for Christmas

Dailylike Christmas Advent Prisms

With the Christmas countdown getting closer we thought we’d share our Christmas Advent Prisms with you again as they are just so darn cute. Can you believe this was the very first DIY project we created nearly a year ago!? It has been an amazing 12 months and there is still plenty more to come! This combination uses the Celebrate Fabric Tape and the free printable template and step-by-step instructions can be found here.

Inspiration : A Fun & Cheap Alternative to Wall Paper

It’s no secret that one of our favourite Dailylike products are the Solid Fabric Tapes.  They come in all sorts of lovely colours such as peach, pink, sky blue and many more! You can’t really appreciate how beautiful they are until you see them in real life!

Dailylike Solid Fabric Tapes

So when we came across this awesome DIY wall-paper alternative by Everything Emily, we knew that our fabric tapes would be perfect for the job!

Not into the crosses so much?  Experiment with other simple shapes.  We think simple heart shapes would look super sweet too.

Double sided tape
Colouring pencils, crayons, pens or markers (optional)

LET’S GET STARTED!
Dailylike Christmas Advent Prisms
STEP ONE
Download the Dailylike Advent Prisms Template and print it onto A4 paper. The template includes 25 prisms and 25 joke inserts. We have used plain copy paper for our example and it’s best to make sure there is no page scaling when you print.

STEP TWO
Use scissors to cut along the solid lines for each of the prisms and joke inserts. Then the colouring is optional but if you want to add some extra colour, now is the time to do it! Here we have used coloured markers.

STEP THREE
Take a prism and fold along the dotted lines. Unfold and lay your prism flat with the design facing up. Add double sided tape to the 3 tabs (attach on the same side as the printed design). It helps to trim the tape on diagonals to match the tabs.

STEP FOUR
Fold in the bottom and side tabs again then peel the backing from the double sided tape. Fold the other half of the prism on top to make a pocket and press firmly along the taped edges.

STEP FIVE
Gently squeeze the top edges of your pocket to make the prism shape, then pop a joke and treat inside.

STEP SIX
Peel off the backing from your top tab and tuck the tab into the prism. Press firmly along the top edge to secure this tab.

STEP SEVEN
Cut a piece of Fabric Tape to 6cm, remove the backing and attach across the top edge of your prism. Repeat for the bottom edge and you have created an Advent Prism!
Do Steps 3 to 7 for each of your cut-out prisms then gather in a basket, string into a garland or place along the mantle for an adorable count down to Christmas Day!
