Cupcake and Doily Banner 10.1

This Cupcake Liner and Doily Banner is the last of the banners I made for Emilee’s Birthday. I decorated her door with 3 banners (or garlands). You can check out the other 2 here: Straw Garland with a Surprise and Dollar Bow Garland.

Cupcake and Doily Banner 4

For this Banner you will need:
Small Cupcake Liners (candy liners)
Small Doilies
Bakers Twine

Cupcake and Doily Banner 5

Flatten the liners the best you can.

Cupcake and Doily Banner 6

Then fold them in half. Fold the doilies in half also.

Cupcake and Doily Banner 7

I folded all of mine at the same time. My banner has 12 cupcake liners ( 6 of each color) and 12 doilies. You can use as many as you want to make it as long as you like.

Cupcake and Doily Banner 8

It’s time to warm up that hot glue gun! Run a bead of hot glue down the fold of the doilies and liners one at a time and attach them to the bakers twine.

Cupcake and Doily Banner 9.1

I spaced mine about a 1/2 inch apart from each other with a doily between each cupcake liner.

This is such a fast and easy project. It would be perfect for any celebration, even at the last minute. You can use any colors and even add celebration letters to banner.

Cupcake and Doily Banner 3.1

I like decorating the kids bedroom doors the night before their birthday so when they wake in the morning they get a fun start to their day. I made a fun door for Zachary in January and had done the same thing for Ammon’s door the year before. Emilee really liked hers. In fact, it’s still up.

Spicy Deviled Eggs with MIRACLE WHIP

Deviled Eggs 5.1

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of MIRACLE WHIP and the Mom It Forward Blogger Network. I have been compensated for this post but all words and opinions are 100% mine.

Deviled Eggs 6.1

My whole family loves Deviled Eggs and they have been a staple at our Easter dinner table since the beginning. I have to confess we don’t eat them much in the colder months, but as soon as the weather starts warming I start thinking about picnics, barbecues, and warm weather holidays, and the first food I think of is Deviled Eggs.

Can I tell you a secret? I don’t usually hard boil the eggs, my husband does. He has it down perfectly so I let him do it! Here’s his tips for perfect hard boiled eggs: Place eggs in a single layer in saucepan and cover the eggs completely with water (an inch or so above the eggs). Bring water to a rapid boil for 5-10 minutes, cover and remove from heat. Let stand 15-20 minutes. Drain water from eggs and fill pan with cold icy water. Change water and add more ice if necessary until completely cooled. If you follow these tips I promise you they will be cooked to perfection and be so easy to peel.

Deviled Eggs should have a little kick to them, don’t you think? I mean, just the name says it should be a little fire-y! I already love the sweet and tangy taste of MIRACLE WHIP #ProudOfIt and by adding a jalapeno pepper to the mixture it gives it just the right amount of kick! My whole family loves them. We took a little weekend vacation and they were the perfect snack to have in the cooler, ready to eat.
