World Cup Swizzel Sticks

by Ashley Page Norton 

Is everyone watching the World Cup? For me, this summer will be remembered as very World Cup focused – I’ve loved watching as many games as I can get to. It’s sad that the U.S. is out but there are still some amazing games left to watch – the remaining four teams play this week to determine who’s in the final on July 13th! Here is a quick way to make some soccer ball drink stirrers to use at a viewing party. They come together easily, despite having a tricky shape (the pentagon) on the ball!

Giant Paper Bead Garland

by Ashley Page Norton 

I love making simple necklaces out of beads (evidence here) and often have my crafty friends over to work on jewelry projects. This garland would be perfect decor for a jewelry crafternoon but it’s so bright and graphic it could work for just about anything. These mega versions of my favorite seed beads come together quickly using whatever paper you have on hand. If you love stringing beads together this will be right up your alley!

Washi Tape Box DIY

by Ashley Page Norton 

I’ve been a huge fan of washi tape for a while and love using it to make permanent designs. Since it’s intended to be removable, using a little decoupage glue over top of the finished design helps the tape to stay stuck. With this method you can whip up some colorful boxes to use as gift packaging that can be repurposed to hold whatever the lucky recipient chooses!

Punched Leaf Napkin Rings

by Ashley Page Norton

I love the idea of tying a piece of rosemary into a mini wreath for a napkin ring – a little bit of greenery always looks nice on a table. Here’s a way to have a set of leafy napkin rings you never have to throw away – they’re made of paper! You can make these into mini wreaths which are super pretty, or customize them by making letters for everyone’s first name who’ll be sitting at your table. Either way it’s a little bit of spring to keep all year round!

Popup Happy Birthday

By Ashley Page Norton

When I saw these silver foil Helvetica stickers, I knew I had to use them somehow! This popup happy birthday message would look great set up on a coworker’s desk or as a surprise somewhere around the house (like in a medicine cabinet or on top of a dresser). You can customize the message by adding the recipients’s name or changing it to say whatever you like. It would also be cute to mail them to a long distance birthday boy or girl – they can unscramble the letters and set them up wherever they want!
