Meet the Maker's Event - Mark your calendar for Saturday November 12

Wednesday, 26 October 2016

We have so many wonderful and talented customers that shop in our stores everyday. We always love to see what local makers and bakers are packaging. We also love to hear about the parties, weddings and events that are being planned. 

So mark your calendar for Saturday November 12, 2016. That is when we are going to host our first Meet the Maker's Event at Creative Bag Toronto from 10am to 5pm. Plan to shop for handmade gifts from three local makers and stock up on all of your holiday packaging supplies during the event. While you are in the store - fill out a ballot to win a basket full of holiday goodies! 

Here's our three Makers ...

Doris gives life to modern illustration and lettering. She creates beautiful signage for those special moments in your life. She sells her custom art, signage and paper goods in her “Love Lettering” Etsy shop online and at local shows like the One of a Kind Show from November 24 to December 4, 2016. 

Karen combines her love for watercolour designs and ink doodles with words of inspiration to create her beautiful cards and prints. She sells her handcrafted paper goods in her “Oh My Inspired” Etsy  shop online and at local shows like the Craft Ontario Craft Show from November 4-6, 2016.

Marine creates peanut and nut free cookies, cakes, cupcakes, fudge and truffles for special occasions. Looking for something different to do with kids? Ask Marine about her baked goods decorating kits.  Her adorable gingerbread house and gingerbread cookies can currently be seen on display in our Creative Bag Toronto store.

I hope to see you at our first Meet the Maker's Event!

Making the holidays a little sweeter with holiday cake toppers

holiday cake and cupcake toppers |

I'm so excited about our new and exclusive holiday cake and cupcake toppers. There are two cake toppers and three cupcake topper and they are all laser cut from birch wood. They are a fun way to add a little holiday spirit to your baked goods and holiday entertaining decor.

I added our "Joy" cake topper to a store bought cake that I embellished with candies and assorted baked goods.

Cake toppers are not just for cakes! Take for example our "merry and bright" cake topper on this mini apple crumble pie.

And our cupcake toppers are adorable on mini pies! The "star" cupcake topper and the "merry and bright" cake topper co-ordinate with our Cameron holiday collection.

Our cupcake toppers are available in three different designs - star, tree and deer. 

sweet winter wedding favour |

Planning a winter wedding or party? Here's a fun favour idea using our cupcake toppers and domed glass bell jars. I placed a star cupcake topper into a raspberry marshmallow created by Caitlin Elaine of Cakelaine. Doris Wai from Love Lettering added her hand lettering on the domed glass favours for a personal touch.

If you are getting married soon, don't forget that we sell a large variety of wedding cake toppers. Like this "best day ever" cake topper that I embellished with a gold leaf pen. You can find my diy tutorial to do this here.
