Cake Folding Paper Giveaway

I was at one of my favorite stores and stumbled upon this cute cake folding paper. I decided to buy one and give it away to one lucky reader. I'm thinking of hosting more giveaways like this on the weekends. I would give away unique items, purchased by me.

To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment telling me if you like the idea of giveaways on the weekend. One entry per household. Please leave an email address so I can contact you if you win. Contest ends Monday, January 25th, 2010. I'll announce the winner Tuesday on this post. International friends welcome :)

*If you're reading this through Facebook, make sure to leave your comment on the actual Zakka Life site and not the Facebook fan page. I wouldn't want you to miss out.


Contest Closed

Congratulations to Nicole who is the winner of the cake folding paper giveaway!

Thank you to everyone who participated. Please come back next Saturday for a new giveaway.

These are super cute! I love the idea of weekend giveaways; similar blogs do it, as well.

The cake paper reminds me of felt kits I saw in my trip to Japan last month; the kits included all the necessary materials to make little stuffed dessert accessories for cell phones and other electornics
