Party DIY {Cake Bunting}

As I mentioned yesterday, we spent the weekend celebrating Rob's 25th birthday. It was filed with plenty of relaxing and of course plenty of cookie cake, his favorite. Being the cookie cake connoisseur he is, there were some specific requirements. It had to be homemade, thick, and free from icing. Free from icing? I know its crazy but that's the way he wanted it. That left me having to come up with a creative way to spell out "Happy Birthday" on top. The solution, three string bunting spelling out the message. I was super pleased with how it turned out so decided to share the how to with you here. Please excuse the instagram, but this is what happens when I'm presently surprised and my camera is out of batteries.

:: Supplies ::
2 Pieces of Colored Card Stock
Silver sharpie
Double Sided Tape
2 Wooden Dowels
Curling ribbon

:: Directions ::
1. Begin by creating a small triangle stencil.
2. Trace and cutout enough triangles to spell out your message alternating colors for each letter.
3. Using your silver Sharpie, write out your message alternating colors for each letter. Using double sided tape, attach the letters of the first word to the string. Tie the string between the two dowels. Repeate for the reaming words in your message.
4. Tie two pies of curling ribbon to the top of each dowel and curl.
5. Stick in the top of the cookie cake and serve.
