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!

Glitzy Easter Placecards

By Ashley Page Norton

Easter is right around the around and these egg and nest placecards come together super fast. The supplies are easy to pick up or if you’re like me you probably have most of them on hand – I love pipe cleaners and always have some around! I’m also total sucker for good alphabet stickers so I pick them up whenever I see them, but you could always handwrite the names instead. These will look great at an Easter table setting!

St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Necklace

by Ashley Page Norton

Somehow I never have anything green to wear on St. Patrick’s Day. This long seed bead necklace is great to have on hand if you’re like me and want to avoid getting pinched! Choose a variety of colors and shapes of beads, just make sure every color of the rainbow is represented (especially green) and even a little gold for the rainbow’s end.
