It’s Your Lucky Day!

Monday, March 7th, 2011

I’ve got a couple of fun DIY projects I did that I can’t wait to share with you but first, I wanted to show this adorable project by the talented ladies of One Charming Party.

Sara and Brittany purchased the clear bags from my Esty shop,  filled them with gold coins and dressed them up with a label. The cute “It’s your lucky day!” printable is available for download on their site and I’m told there are more St. Patrick’s Day goodies to come!



2011 DIY Valentine’s Day Brownie Bags

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

*UPDATE: Download the latest version of the bag here. Enjoy and happy early Valentine’s Day to all!

Out of all the posts featured here on T&T, my Valentine Treat Bags have been by far the most popular. I know that many of you have been awaiting the updated 2011 version so without further ado, here they are!

Instructions are included in the PDF and if you need bags, I sell them in my Etsy shop. The bags are available in Craft and White along with the the Glassine Liner Bags to help maintain freshness for perishables and protect the paper from oil stains.

Just download the file and print directly onto the paper bag using a color ink jet printer. For more detailed instructions and other printing suggestions visit my previous post here. Once you’ve made the bags, fill with heart shaped brownies cut with a cookie cutter. Have fun!



Well Branded: Ladurée

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

I am officially in love with the Ladurée brand! From the pale pastel packaging with the gold foil printing to the coordinating delivery trucks, every detail is exquisite! Ladurée is a luxury patisserie originally from Paris, France. Serving all kinds of sweets, Ladurée is most well known for their colorful macarons. Now if only I could manage a trip to one of those shops myself, I might faint from all the beauty and sugar! Swoon!

Wrap it Up!

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

Truth be told, I almost enjoy wrapping gifts more than I do picking them out. There’s something so fun about finding the right paper and the perfect coordinating ribbon and seeing it all wrapped and under the tree! I’ve had a tough time narrowing it down but Snow & Graham has a few of my favorite wraps this season. I can’t get enough of their patterns and color palettes!
