Birthday Craft and Band-aid Ideas

on February 16, 2012

Birthday Cupcake: This is a great idea for a decoration or a b-day gift.  What I did differently was use a regular cupcake wrapper instead of making one.  Also, for the frosting part of the cake, I cut the strips of paper to different widths and made the paper curl differently.

Band-aids: Something I thought about is using band-aids for a kind of healing journal/scrapbook.  Throughout our lives, we have times of healing.  One way to help with the healing process could be to create a journal or a scrapbook.  As an accent, you could use band-aids that have words of inspiration or healing quotes.  Or create a border with the band-aids.  Use them to tape down photos or as part of the binding.


“Time heals all wounds.”

“We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise we harden.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Laughter is the best medicine.”

“Love is the great miracle cure. Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.”
   Louise L. Hay (born 1926)

Other ideas: You could also use band-aids as part of a get well card.  You could also write and decorate fun little words or quotes or with a name of an organization as a fundraiser item.
