How to be Featured

So, you want to know how to featured here on Paper*Cakes finds?? There is a little bit of criteria that we look for when choosing items or websites to feature.

We have a specific theme here on the blog. We look for cuteness first and foremost. Our definition of "cute" is quite broad, but basically we are looking for well made items, good quality, nice design, focus, and a nice sense of color. It would be a plus if your item had a really cool function!

The types of things are are looking for are: (but not limited to)

- items for sale
- fun crafts
- blogs or websites
- tutorials/DIY projects
- home decor photos or projects
- beautiful photos
- party planning
- recipes with photos - baked goods only
