Now I want to bring you in to my world for a minute. I hate ants. Like, for real. I don’t tolerate them anywhere in the house but especially in the kitchen. And wouldn’t you know that as I began making this recipe, I started finding ants in this cabinet. Cooking had to be put on hold as I took every item out of the cupboard, ant-chalked the shit out of it and left it open so I could have an ant stake-out. So much for whatever focus I started with. To top it off, many of my mom’s recipes lack instructions. See, she has common sense in the kitchen so she knows what to do. Me? Not so much.

If you are a regular reader of my blog you know that I am a lazy tutorialist and don’t get too crazy with my photo staging. This “craft” is perfect for me. Super cute, totally easy.
Here is all you need to make these adorable cupcake picks. The download prints out a page of 48 one inch circles. I suggest the EK Success punch so that is what I bought. Best punch I’ve ever used! So run out and get one of those, use a punch you already have, or if all else fails, cut out the circle with scissors. As you can see from the picture of the banner, I only used about 5 circles. Not that time consuming. And for the picks, you only need to cut out enough for each guest in attendance (or sometimes it is super cute to just have a few – adds pizazz, excites the guests and half the work!)
Cut the skewers with the scissors to whatever size you prefer. Feel free to use toothpicks or some other type of stick. I loved the thickness of the skewer with the proportion of the circle. And I made these different heights to add visual interest. I do stuff like that. I’m all artsy. Use your Glue Dots product of choice to adhere the cut out circle to the skewer. I used both the Mini and Micro and both worked great.
To make the banner, all you would need is some ribbon, yarn, string, thread, you get the idea – as well as the above materials. Simply tie the string to two uncut skewers and use the Glue Dots to adhere the circles right to the string.
