Vintage Bake Sale!

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Photos By Heather Bullard

Most bake sales I’ve been to entail a lot of plastic wrap and Tupperware but these photos by Heather Bullard are enough to wipe this memories away. Everything is just darling but I think the vintage props are what really take the cake. Make sure to check out the rest of her portfolio, it’s a real treat!

I just adore these DIY Baby Shower Invitations by the talented Edyta Szyszlo. Created for her friend, I especially love the fruit stripe envelope liner and the custom silhouettes. Also, make sure to check out the photos form the event, Edyta did such an amazing job!



DIY Table Number Napkins

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Hi Friends and happy Monday! I thought I’d start the week off with a DIY project that I created for larger events like weddings, showers or anything that requires multiple tables. Instead of traditional numbered cards I thought it would be fun to number the napkins instead. They make for a striking presentation that your guests are sure to remember. The template comes in black but can be easily customized by changing the color of the napkin.

Complete instructions and step-by-step photos after the break.

DIY St. Patrick’s Day Coasters

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011


No St. Patrick’s Day is complete with out a good Irish beer! Why not celebrate in style with these shamrock inspired coasters?! Substitute with sparkling cider for little ones and everyone can join in the fun!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED
Color Printer
Paper
Blotter paper or thick cardstock
Spray Adhesive
Craft Knife

INSTRUCTIONS
To make these printables more coaster-like, simply print template onto regular text weight paper then glue them to a thicker cardstock with a spray adhesive. I use thick blotter paper or watercolor paper which can be found at any art supply store.

Once glued together, using a craft knife, carefully trim out each coaster along solid grey line. If printed with an ink jet printer be warned that the ink may bleed when dampened. An alternative is to either print with a color laser printer or have them laminated. Sláinte!

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!
