Gluten-Free? No Problem!

If you or anyone in your family has a food allergy, then you know that making a special portion or having another option available at mealtime is no big deal. Gluten-free or soy-free foods and ingredients are much more readily available at the local supermarket than in the past.

But what to do when you have a house full of people for a party, and you want to make sure people know which are the options for those with allergies?  Why you use your Stampin’ Up! supplies to make signs, of course!

(Warning: SNEAK PEEK content included…)  If you’re a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, then you had the chance to pre-order the new Build A Cupcake Punch (121807) from the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog (orders begin January 4).

Here’s the punch in action…except that I used it to make muffins, rather than cupcakes.  See?  Don’t they look like little corn muffins, ready to eat with chili?

The signs are stuck with glue dots to BBQ skewers on the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch pieces.  Then the cupcake (aka muffin) pieces are punched with the Build A Cupcake Punch.  The punch is just like the 2 Step Owl Punch, where all the pieces are on one large punch, and you just use strips of paper to punch out the ones you need.

Even sweeter, there is actually a stamp set called Create A Cupcake that matches the punch perfectly.  You stamp, then punch your pieces.  So sweet!  But my doorbell was ringing, so this is all I had time to assemble in the 45 seconds available 🙂

If you already have this fun punch, then enjoy!  And if you don’t have it yet… you’ll just have to wait to check it out when your Mini Catalog comes in the mail later this week, or until it’s available online to browse on January 4th!

  1. Meg, great idea. Our neighbor’s daughter has celiac so we always try to have gluten free items for her too. Have to share that Bisquick now has Gluten Free Baking Mix that is GREAT. I made her Toffee Bars a couple weeks ago using it, and we all loved the cookies. For Christmas I made her Chocolate Chip/Brownie Bars using Betty Crocker’s Chocolate Chip cookie mix and Brownie mix and it was a major hit.
    Here’s a link to the recipes:

  2. Between my 2 year old son and my 5 year old daughter they have the following allergies (milk, eggs, fish/shellfish, peanut/treenut, carrots, peaches, apricots, nectaries) along with environmental (animals, dust, mold) etc so for it would be nice to have my WHOLE family on the bandwagon but the only one who really is is my FAVE SIL. She is awesome and has taught me alot…this is a cute idea we just avoid it ALL…

  3. Eeeks! Wow, that is a handful of things to avoid–I can’t imagine. You’d need an awful lot of little signs for food 😉 On the plus side, junk food like McD’s is probably out for your family! There was just an article in the paper here recently about food allergies becoming more and more common.
