Spaceships and Laser Beams

The handmade market seems to be flooded with cute items for girly girls. But what about the boys? They want cool handmade stuff, too! Thanks to the Etsy collective Spaceships and Laser Beams there's more boyish items to choose from. This group illustrates DIY party supplies just for boys & they have developed a special-edition cupcake wrapper for Valentine's Day that boys are sure to love. It can be hard to find Valentine's cupcakes that appeal to boys, so the idea behind this cupcake wrapper is to look at Valentine's Day from a little boy's perspective: Ewww. Girls. Ewwww. Kissing. Ewwww. From far away, the wrapper looks as though it's turquoise with red hearts. But up close you realize those aren't hearts at all - they're germs and cooties. Awesome! This unique perspective was illustrated & designed by Andrew, the only male designer in this collective. And, the icing on the cupcake so to speak, is that 5% of all sales are donated to the YMCA Strong Kids campaign that aims to help young boys grow in to strong young men. Visit the Spaceships and Laser Beams blog that covers all things boy party related.
