My hubby's b-day was at the end of June, but we celebrated it a few days later. I wanted to make his cake a bit more festive so I made these mini birthday flags. I made big felt flags like this a few years ago and now whenever it is somebody's birthday I hang them up.
Can you see the repair work I did? Originally I had set the cake up in a different location. Right as I was about to snap a picture, Moose put her hand right into it and dug out a little chunk! Oh toddler hood, you bring me such daily adventures. So I had to move the cake to a less attractive location.
To make them I took a wooden skewer and broke it in half. Then I took some floss and glued some paper diamonds folded in half on to the string. I tied the strings up and stuck it in the cake for some simple and festive fun.
