Cake Bunting with Dear Lizzy Fifth & Frolic!

Sharing is caring!

I recently experience some Spring like joy which isn’t easy to come by this year here in PA (go away snow!!).  In fact, it was a pretty soggy, cold day when I came home from work and found these beauties waiting for me!

It’s the new line of Dear Lizzy Fifth & Frolic products from American Crafts and it’s all available now at JoAnn stores! The colors and patterns are so cheerful and fun!  I instantly had about 56 projects I wanted to make with them, but there was one in particular that I’ve been itching to make and these seemed just perfect for it!

 

A cake bunting!

These are so versatile and can be customized for any occasion and my absolute favorite part??  They can be made ahead!  As a cake decorator, one of the most frustrating parts of the trade for me, is the fact that everything has to be last minute.  It’s really hard to work ahead on something that also has to taste fresh and as if it was just made that morning! But unlike most other cake toppers, these buntings can be made ahead of time and just the thought of that makes me all sorts of giddy and giggly!

These were super easy to make too!  I took a piece of the scrapbook paper that was already patterned with triangles (aka pennants), and just cut some triangles out along the lines.  The glitter foam letters are stickers so that whole step of the project took about 7.8 seconds.  I taped some white thread onto the back of each pennant and then moved on to the support posts.

I LOVE this glitter tape! Such a pretty color (anyone else all over the glitter gold lately??), the glitter doesn’t come off on your hands and it’s flexible and sticky! Perfection!

I wrapped some regular old drinking straw with it.

I made sure to stop about 2″ from the bottom of the straw since that portion would be inserted into the cake and I didn’t need glitter tape in my cake.

Then I knotted the string onto the glitter straws and attached the fabric bows to the top with a little bit of hot glue.
