Keep Calm and Carry On!

I keep seeing Keep Calm and Carry On everywhere and today while I was looking for cupcake wrappers I saw it on Robert Gordan's website, printed on a milk bottle of all things! It's become a shabby/retro slogan!

And for those of the who are interested, it was one of three posters printed by the British Government during World War II in bold colours with the symbol of the king's crown. The plan was that if Germany invaded, all of these posters would be issued. As history tells, Germany did not invade and so the posters were burnt, bar a couple which got kept and later auctioned off. Apparently a couple still exist in the Imperial War Museum in London. How Brainy am I ??!! (source: www.keepcalmandcarryon.com).

Now these guys have keep calm printed on ev-er-ry-thing! but....when I searched for cupcake toppers, I saw this: no results! *gasp*

So, what else is a girl to do on a Friday night when DS and DD are asleep woot woot!! and DH has gone fishing? you got it... make cupcake toppers!!
Here they are! Approx 3.5cm by 4.5cm, perfect size to make your cupcakes retro chic.

Of course there is one about cupcakes....

These are available in my ETSY shop in nearly any customised colour. Pink, light blue, turquoise, black, pale green and red are the most popular.

You can request different combinations of sayings too.

They will also be on sale at our market stalls!! See our market page for details of when and where we will be! Keep calm everyone!
