DIY St. Patrick’s Day Treats!

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

Even though I have bright red hair, I’m not the least bit Irish but that doesn’t mean I can’t celebrate St. Patricks Day like I am! This week I’ve got two DIY projects in honor of ol’ St. Pat and this first one is a sweet twist on a pot of gold.

Simply cut rice crispy treats into the shape of gold bars, wrap in parchment paper and gold foil and serve! Don’t worry about cutting them perfectly, once wrapped in the gold foil, they truly look like the real deal! Fun for a party, lunch boxes or even shimmering favors!



You’re Invited!

Monday, February 7th, 2011

The 2011 Oscars air on February 27th this year and I couldn’t be more excited! I’m a huge movie fan and grew up in a family that celebrated film and television. Consequently, the Academy Awards were always a big deal to us. My parents even named our cats Oscar and Emmy!

Last year, I created a downloadable Oscar suite that included printable party invitations, ballots, envelope liners, popcorn bags and candy toppers. I’ve been getting quite a few requests for an updated 2011 version so, with out further ado, here they are! Each PDF includes instructions and if you need more information, please see my original posts here and here.

OSCAR INVITATION & ENVELOPE LINERS
Set the tone for the party to come with these printable Oscar Party Invitations and envelope liners.

OSCAR BALLOT
Play along while you watch! Have guests arrive early to fill out the ballot ahead of time for who they think will win. At the end of the evening, tally up the score to see who guessed the most right!

POPCORN BAGS
What are movies without the popcorn? Serve individual portions by printing the template directly onto white paper bags, line with glassine bags to prevent butter stains and fill with movie popcorn! Both the paper and glassine bags can be found in my Etsy shop here.

CANDY BAG TOPPERS
Of course you can’t have the popcorn without the candy! Dress sweets up by arranging in cellophane bags and topping with red and white stripped toppers. Arrange it all on an old fashioned candy tray and pass it around to all your guests. Learn how to make a candy try here.

To make; purchase standard white paper cups (available at Target), print Cup of Cheer Cup Sleeves PDF onto cover weight paper, cut, wrap and tape with double-stick tape and you’re done!

Stay tuned, I have another giveaway to announce later today. Here’s a hint; two people will have a chance to win and it’s awesome!



Love and Thanks Freebie

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

Another amazing DIY freebie today! Amy Moss of Eat Drink Chic posted this a few weeks ago but it seems fitting for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday here in the states. Delightfully sweet and equally as charming, this little “Love and Thanks” card is available as a free download through Amy’s site. Just Print, cut and fold!

Paired with a bouquet of flowers or dish of sweets, this would be the perfect card to add to a hostess gift or a simple greeting.
