Bling sticks are sparkly bake sticks that are intended for cake pops and other delectable sweets on a stick, but Tonya set forth to find many more uses for these glittering gems! They can be purchased online from Made by a Princess.
We of course were smitten to see her use the bling sticks as name cards that were housed inside our black and white chain link blumebud place card holders for one star studded Pap-a-Razzi Baby Shower she hosted.
The inspiration for our “how to make a shabby chic container with tissue paper”, came to us after seeing this DIY Favor Box Ideas from Tulle Box Designs over on Wedding Chicks.
Using a few supplies, (4″ white blumebox cube, cut up 2″ squares of white tissue paper, double stick tape and the end of a pencil) this tissue clad blumebox flower vase began to takes its poofy shape in no time at all.
1) Line each side of the blumebox with strips double stick tape, leaving about a 1/4″ between each strip.
2) Take a piece of tissue paper and wrap round eraser side of pencil. This will help you stick the tissue to the blumebox. Continue along the path of the double stick tape to you reach the end. Repeat till each panel is covered with tissue. To mix it up a bit use various colored tissue to get an ombre effect!
3) Fill with flowers, candy or cake pops!
Party Planners, Michelle from Maddy Cakes Muse and Mariah from Giggles Galore hosted a class, Blog Stars with an Old Hollywood Film theme. The movie theme brought some great ideas including this “Pop”Arazzi Popcorn Bar that was complete with buffet of flavored popcorn from Poppa Maize Gourmet Popcorn.

With just four supplies needed and super simple instructions, you can make a layered ribbon box in no time.
1) Apply two strips of double stick tape to each side of the blumebox (8 strips total).
2) Measure out one strip of ribbon that covers the circumference of the box and cut. Proceed to cut the necessary amount of ribbon needed to cover the entire blumebox.
3) Starting from the base or bottom of the blumebox, proceed to stick ribbon to the double stick tape. Extra tape might be needed on the ends of the cut ribbon to ensure a clean join.
After finishing the light pink satin ribbon vase, we wanted to try a version with some light and bright pink ruffled ribbon we had in stock. By adding the cake pop/lollipop insert, the layered ribbon container transformed into a pretty awesome pink ombre cake pop display box.
Coming soon…tissue paper case!

Calling all Sesame Street fans…
Check out this colorful birthday party designed by one talented mom, who made sure to celebrate her kids, Sesame Street style!
We loved spotting an array of blumeboxes throughout this party and the ways in which the blumeboxes were used. While blumebox is designed to hold flowers, with its cardboard make up, it allows for so many more uses. And this party showcases some fun alternatives.
Amidst the endless offerings of candy on the sweets table, two 6″ blumeboxes are filled with assorted suckers and tissue. Talk about cute, colorful, and cost effective!
Need a way to display signs? How clever are all the Sesame Street cut outs, displayed in different colored 8″ blumeboxes. To weigh down the box and hold up the signs, you could fill the blumebox bag with sand, rocks or marbles.
We want to hear from you! Have you incorporated blumeboxes into a recent celebration and have images you would like to share? Contact us.
