Re-using your cake
The rubber bands
The rubber bands used are unfortunately not recyclable. However, you will always find yourself looking for one, so you can definitely re-use them.
Luckily, the cardboard are all recyclable.
The cellophane we've used is bio-degradable.
What do I do with all the ribbons?
Now for the ribbons. The ribbons have really endless usage, all you need is a granny or mommy, or in some cases, yourself, to create any of these ideas. Definitely use Pinterest/Google for inspiration, if needed.
-Taggy Toys/ Blanket
-Dancing Ribbon Ring
All of these are great for new babies and contributes to sensory & motor skills development.
Or simply use to wrap gifts or any DIY project!
Do use # thebabypetal, so I can see and share further.
Keep in mind, that I have to glue these ribbons on though, to keep them in place. I have tried to use minimal glue, so they can be re-used. In some cases, you can carefully try to peal it off and maximum usage.
What about all the other stuff?
Put the flowers in a vase.
Use the chiffon flower to make a headband or add to a treasure basket (Pinterest!). Or why not combine with the ribbons to diy a baby mobile?
Use the accessories on doors or walls for decorative purposes.
