So i wanted the most possible blinged out card box without spending a fortune. I finally finished...
I posted this on my old blog and had tons of awesome feedback, so I figured I would post it for all the lovely new ladies on here that might like to try. I am probably making some in pink for our candy table, or putting some on each table for coffee. I also thought it would be cute to give some as favours with coffee beans or something :)
Here are the instructions ladies, enjoy!
greaseproof paper (parchment/wax paper)
small heart-shaped cookie cutter
1. Prepare bowl with sugar. Then add a tiny drop of food colour to the sugar, and a little water to make it damp. Mix until evenly coloured.
2. On a piece of greaseproof paper, push a small amount of sugar firmly into the heart cutter (see 1) and level the top with a spoon (see 2). Carefully lift off the cutter and let dry (see 3&4)**
3. Repeat until all the sugar us used up.
** note: make sure that you do not try and move the cubes until they are dry, about 1/2 hour
p.s. don't you just love my damask cappuccino mugs! I also have coffee and espresso ones :)
