Paper Flower Party Hats

by Kathleen Ballos

Who can resist paper flowers? Now that it’s finally spring, I think it would be so much fun to host an April Showers Bring May Flowers party. I love making party hats because when you take a group photograph, the theme of the party is unmistakable – and in this case your guests would look like a bouquet!

Mini Cactus Piñatas

by Kathleen Ballos

I’ve been loving the cactus trend that seems to be happening lately, especially since I do not have a green thumb whatsoever. It’s almost Cinco de Mayo, so I thought it would be a lot of fun to make these miniature cacti piñatas to celebrate! Since you pull a string instead of smashing these piñatas, you can keep them up as decorations even after the candy has been eaten!

DIY Easter Nesting Three Ways

by Kathleen Ballos

Have you dyed your Easter eggs yet? I usually dye mine on Good Friday and then set up my basket for the Easter bunny to find overnight. Plain paper nesting is available in stores of course, but why settle when you can customize your own to match your eggs and basket??

DIY Honeycomb Birds

by Kathleen Ballos

Do you love honeycombs as much as I do?  With Easter right around the corner, I spotted egg-shaped honeycombs at Target and thought they would be perfect for making these springy bird decorations! Make a few and hang them around a dessert table this Easter – and once Easter is over, wouldn’t they be fun for a baby shower too?

Loopy Paper Garland

by Kathleen Ballos

I don’t think there will ever be a shortage of garlands to make for parties! When making the vintage-inspired springy paper garland and paper net garland, I had some scraps leftover and came up with this. Wouldn’t it be fun to make this garland in rainbow colors?
