FREE printables: Jubilee cupcake toppers and cake banners

To celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee next weekend, I’ve designed some special Wee Birdy cupcake toppers and cake banners! They’re free to download and print and super-easy to assemble.

Jubilee cupcake toppers
All you need is a colour printer, some cardboard (a cereal box will do or some red or blue cardboard would look great), some scissors or pinking shears, glue and toothpicks.

Print out the free downloadable PDF here* and glue the back of the sheet of cupcake toppers to an A4 piece of cardboard, then cut around each circle. I used pinking shears for a cute finish. Stick a toothpick to the back of each cupcake topper with sticky tape. If you want it to look super-slick, print out another sheet of toppers and glue another topper on the back, covering up the toothpick. Ta-da! How good do they look?

All you need is a colour printer, some scissors, glue, cardboard and wooden skewers.

Print out the free downloadable PDF here* and glue the back of the banner/s to some cardboard. Cut around the border, making sure you don’t cut over the coloured edge. Stick two skewers on a slight angle to each end of the banner with sticky tape. You’re done – now just pop it in the Victorian Sponge and it’s ready for your Jubilee street party. If you’re having a table of cakes, pop a different design in each cake. They’ll look spectacular. Enjoy!

* The Wee Birdy Jubilee Cupcake Picks and Cake Banners are free downloadable pdfs and are for personal use only. Please feel free to pin, blog or tweet about these free printables, but please link back to www.weebirdy.com and to this actual post’s URL. Please do not link directly to the downloadable file. Thank you.

Wee Christmas finds: Papermash loveliness

The rather lovely UK-based online stationery shop, Papermash, has stocked up on some super-sweet things for Christmas.

I love the wine letterpress gift tags (£2.25), the dainty and delicate tissue snowflake card (£5, and it ships flat) and the very special London snow globe print, which was designed by Clare Owen (and is exclusive to Papermash, £46). I think I really need one on my wall to remind of London's winter wonderland right now (it's way too hot, humid and sticky here in Sydney!).

And if you're in a crafty mood, you might like to try the pretty snowflake doily project, which is featured in the 'Free' section of the site.

Forgotten to sort out Valentine's Day tomorrow? Can't be bothered and/or don't want to buy into the whole commercial nastiness of it all, rah rah rah? If you're so inclined, then you may like to check out these marvellously birdy Valentine's Day designs, courtesy of digital design studio Ollibird. Seriously minimal effort required, too. Thanks to Urban Mums for the super tip.

Birdy goes bartering

Picture 9
Until very recently, I had no idea that so many Londoners were such big swappers.

I had always presumed that I had nothing of value to swap, and that certain bartering schemes like LETS were the exclusive domain for those with allotments and a special interest in Hopi ear candling. In fact, LETS and skills-swap groups are more popular than
ever, with record numbers joining up ever since the recession rolled in.

If you want to find out more about bartering, check out my guide to London's freebie economy in this week's Time Out.
