Cookie favors for the American's Womens Club meeting.
I love catering for the American Women's Club...and love visiting their beautiful homes. This is the second year I am catering for their meeting. They are a wonderful group of ladies, always working very hard to raise money for charity. Catering for them is very meaningful. That day, it was pouring in Shanghai and it took 45mins to get from Changle Lu to Huashan Lu. We were getting close to very late. And we manage to set the table in Half an Hour. I was very impressed so is Myszka.

What You'll Need for the Large Snowflake Pictured:
- 3 sheets of 8½" by 11" heavyweight paper —we used double-sided metallic cover paper from Archiver's
- 1 sheet for the larger loops (shown here in red)
- 2 sheets for the smaller loops (shown here in gold)
- X-acto knife
- ½" double-sided tape
- 18" piece of ribbon
Cut your paper into 1"-wide strips. You will need seven 8"-long strips for the larger loops, twelve 6"-long strips for the smaller loops.
Step 2: Make Loops
Using your double-sided tape, make all of your strips into loops. Double-sided tape should be strong enough for most papers but, if needed, you can use regular clear tape on the outside of your seams to make your loops extra secure.
Step 3: Assemble the Spokes
To make the spokes of your snowflake, use double-sided tape to attach two small loops to a large loop—one attached to the inside, one to the outside. You should have one large loop remaining. This is the center of your snowflake.
Step 4: Attach the Spokes
Arrange your spokes around the center loop and attach them with double-sided tape.
Step 5: Attach Loops
Use double-sided tape to attach the sides of your spokes together.
Step 6: Attach Ribbon
Tie on your ribbon and hang!
Note: Experiment with different configurations and papers. The center snowflake pictured was made by pinching the loops into a petal shape. The snowflake on the far right was made with white and silver papers.

See more designs from Susy Jack
I definitely will want one of these. It cost $275.00 for the clear table and $310.00 for the opaque via here.
I've been ask this question since I started drawing. My graduate essay was [Design: Making order out of chaos]. These simple answers by Calie Anderson really put things into perspective.
Never go out of style with these little animal blocks. I am sure adults will love it too.
See it all here.
I always love SUN JAR BY SUCK UK. imagine the tables lit with the sunjar. I will not worry about wind or electricity. I was looking all over the town for it because for table decorations for my events. Here is what I've found:
It will cost 48USD each on the web. I've found the real thing at Nest, Taikang lu, can't remember the price but not cheap. The other day, while i was sourcing at Cheng Huang Miao, I saw it. at 150 rmb each. and I am going to bargain it down to 100 rmb each.
Let me know if you are interested.

This is absolutely stunning. taking the 2 dimensional brand image apart and reconstructed in a 3d space.
For a brand to be successful it has to have strong presence. If only retails owners realise the power of branding. I am not talking about the flat stuff...like logo, promotional items etc. It is taking the brand, it's element and identity and putting into a space. You will feel the brand throughout and connect with what the brand represents. This is about environmental graphics.
Of course, there are issue on budget. however with smart design, you can create an experience with even the smaller budget. Take the elements of a brand and use them as a guide to layout and decorate the space.

This is one of the best present a child can receive on their 21st birthday. It will take at least a year to document and a few thousand rmb for a camera and another few k for printing and binding, however, that will depends on the number of pages, copies required and complexity. Nevertheless, it's all worth the effort because it will be priceless. And I definitely recommend this to mom-to-be. Start writing!
I will be designing one for my mom's birthday. I know she'll be so happy and the best thing I can give. Memories.
