A special cake!

How lucky is little Emily? For her 3rd birthday she got to have this amazing Bubbles Before Bed birthday cake and special Boo cupcakes at her party! The rich chocolate cake was made by A Little Bit Fancee and is all edible! We're in awe.

Bubbles Before Bed Cutie's

We got sent this picture by Things I Saw and Liked with the following commentary  "Using our Bubbles Before Bed, To Do Book. One happy little girl.....She's still playing & chatting away. The paper boat's in her play oven & Boo's in some kind of trouble. To be contd.."

We love the thought of our Bubbles Before Bed To Do Book inspiring so much creativity in little minds!

Deborah at Four Little Munchkin's strikes again too.
She turned her paper doll at the back of Bubbles Before Bed into a mini Belle (and Boo!) fabric toy to go into the bed! So clever.

Bubbles Before Bed is a perfect summer holiday activity book... how have you been using yours?

Love, Clare

We're big tape fans here at Belle & Boo, in case you hadn't noticed! We've got tape on the mind too because we're in the process of designing a new one to come out for Christmas... exciting times.

While we mainly just use the deco tape we sell to make parcels, envelopes and presents look pretty it often gets other uses. For example, the parade tape holds my old and cracked mac together!

But check out these craft projects that people have done with our tape...

The folk over at Lovely Tape have done a few projects. I'm so in love with this bookmark idea that uses our London Umbrella Tape.

And in their shop, they've used the London Umbrella Tape to cover a shelf!

At Christmas, a clever customer sent us this picture where they used our Christmas tape to make these sweet jars.

I also came across this picture where water bottles have been jazzed up with some fancy tape. I can't help but think the Boo & The Butterfly tape would look great done like this for a kids/christening or Easter party.

 Have you done anything creative with our tape? We'd love to hear about it if you have... send us an email with pictures!.
