{Freebie Friday} Special Delivery Tags

Daydream-In-Color-Holiday-Box-2012

If I were more on top of things, I would’ve shared with you all my recipes & packaging for this year’s holiday box (I may still share them in January). But as time would have it, I’m headed to the Bay Area tomorrow morning & I still need to wrap gifts & pack. If you’re crunched on time like me, I’m sure these tags will come in handy for those last minute gifts you’re trying to find! These Special Delivery tags are what I used on my boxes this year, which were pine themed (pine green, coral, kraft colors).

{Freebie Friday} Canning Jar Labels

My BFF is a big into canning and making yummy preserves. I have yet to take my little kitchen on that journey. I’m excited about getting ready to go to U-Pick farms to get all the delicious produce and berries the Pacific Northwest has to offer. I came across these cute vintage inspired canning jar labels that make me want to start concocting fun flavor combos like peach rosemary jam or rose raspberry compote just so I have a reason to print out these little darlings.

{Freebie Friday} Fruit Stationery

With yesterday’s Daydream In Fruits post, I’m daydreaming of laying in the warm weather and writing to catch up with all my friends. I thought I’d share some summer stationery perfect for the occasion! If you end up throwing a fruit themed party, these would be so cute for favors!

Supplies:

  • Template
  • Printer
  • Paper (plain printer paper works well for this since multiple sheets may be used for a letter)
  • Scissors or paper cutter
  • Envelopes (A7 for no folding of the stationery sheets)
  • Ribbon, seals, or other trimmings to decorate for a gift set

Directions:

  1. Click the template to open.
  2. Print on desired paper. These would be cute printed on kraft paper or on colored paper too.
  3. Cut along the solid rectangles around each sheet. There are 2 per printed paper.
  4. Pair them with envelopes and seals for a gift set. Tie them all together with ribbon or twine. Tie on a couple of embellishments like vintage buttons for fun.

{Freebie Friday} Sherbet Stripe Party Set

 

You may remember the Ombre Tulip Party Set I had on my blog last year inspired by these beautiful tulip fields. Well, today I’m inspired by ice cream and sherbet and a couple of my favorite colors this season, coral and aquamarine. Definitely wearing my aquamarine pants right now as I type.

Not only are there stripey invites for all those Spring/Summer parties, but there are place cards, placemats, thank you cards perfect for anytime, and a really adorable ice cream garland tutorial! The only thing missing from the party is some ice cream, friends, and sunshine!

In case you’re curious, we got some french vanilla ice cream, english toffee, Dancing Deer Co. peanut butter brownies, and Stonewall Kitchen dark chocolate sea salt caramel sauce ($7) for this little shindig. That sauce. OMG. A described it as melting down our favorite chocolate covered sea salt caramels from Fran’s. So good! I could seriously have this combo for dessert everyday.

What are you planning on using this sherbet stripe set for? Are you planning any parties?

Supplies:

  • Templates
  • White card stock
  • Scissors/Paper cutter
  • String and adhesive (for garland only)
  • Optional: scoring tool

Directions:

  1. Click desired template download link to open.
  2. Print template on cardstock.
  3. Fold along dotted lines, if applicable.
  4. Cut out along solid lines.
  5. Final touches:
    • For invitation, fill out information and mail to your friends in an A7 emvelope.
    • For place cards, write your guests’ names in the scalloped area and place at their chair. These can be used to label your food too.
    • For the place mat, cut along the outer edge of colors and place under your guests’ plates/bowls/cutlery. These can also be used as the table runner if placed along the center of the table.
    • For the ice cream cone garland, follow the picture directions below.
    • For thank you cards, write in the card and mail to your friends in an A2 envelope.

 

  1. Supplies
  2. Cut out template and arrange into cones. I sandwiched two circles so that it would be colored on both sides as it twirled.
  3. Open your arranged cones with white side facing up and apply adhesive (around the edges and down the center).
  4. Place string in the center of your shape. Continue until you reach the length you desire.
  5. Hang on the wall or around the table. I used washi tape to stick it to the wall.

{Freebie Friday} Message Flip Books

I remember making flips books in art class when I was young. I made one of a bursting star and I thought they were just about the coolest things ever. I wanted to incorporate this fun in a little message flip book. These would be so cute as a card substitute, the thank you’s as part of the favors for a kid’s party, or just to brighten someone’s day. You can’t go wrong. Everyone reverts back to a smiling kid when a flip book is involved!

Supplies:

  • Template
  • Cardstock and/or copy paper
  • Scissors or paper cutter
  • Stapler
  • Decorative tape
  • Optional: Pliers

Directions:

  1. Click on template to open.
  2. Print onto card stock.
    • If you are making a bunch, you can just print the cover on card stock & the pages on copy paper.
  3. Cut along solid lines.
    • This is the perfect job for a paper cutter because all the liens are straight. You can also cut through several papers at once.
  4. Place a cover set around each set of pages and straighten.
  5. Staple the edge of the pages together.
  6. Flatten the staple with pliers, if desired, and cover with decorative tape.
  7. Flip through & smile!

I know you’re thinking. Where had that {Make & Munch} series gone? I was bursting at the seams with ideas and even began designing printables. Then life and work got a hold of me, so I was never able to shoot any pictures or make the fun recipes I had been so eagerly creating.

Well, I’m back today with a really simple idea. It’s a great way to stay hydrated especially with the warmer seasons on its way (or so I hope!) and the craft is perfect for any get together. We had it with homemade pizza (recipe to come) one night and it was delish!

  • Colored or patterned paper
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Straws
