The aim of this page is to add any Special Occasion Ideas linked crafts or activities that I have tried and used regularly that may be of use. They may not be very new to many, but swapping of any ideas is one of the main reasons why I like craft blogs in general. So this page will gradually be added to. Do leave a comment of you wish, especially if you have tried any of these ideas or have suggestions as to how they could be developed and I shall add those too.

Festive Cake Design
This is my take on a cake design that I found on the Pink Whisk. I decided to use it for my Birthday cake seeing as my birthday is so close to Christmas.

Homemade Gift Tags
Simple homemade Christmas Gift tags.
Original Post here.
Keep your Christmas cards and make sure that there is not any writing etc on the back for the front panel.
Using pinking shears or ordinary scissors, cut the front of the card to a suitable shape.
Using a hole punch cut a hole in the top left hand corner or in the top centre. Pop through some ribbon, string or foil gift ribbon through the hole.
The tag is now ready to write on and attach to a gift.
This is an ideal task for children to do and a variety of shapes could be cut. The same could be applied to birthday cards if the designs lend themselves to it.
