Printable Mini Super Stars

by Alix Sorrell

I recently returned from a trip to India where beautiful paper stars (leftover from Christmas) were hanging everywhere! Even though the holidays are over, I loved how fun & versatile they were. These printable stars can be printed on any color paper which makes them the perfect addition to any party you were planning. Hang them from a centerpiece or string them together to make a banner. Fold one into an envelope and sent as a birthday card to let a special someone know that they are a super star!

DIY Anniversary Gifts

by Kathleen Ballos

Did you know that there is a specific material assigned to each year of marriage? I thought it would be fun to use the list as inspiration for DIY anniversary gift packages. For this post I focused on paper (1 year), wood (5 years), and silver (25 years) but wouldn’t fruit & flowers (4 years), cotton (2 years), and lace (13 years) be fun to do as well? It’s a lot of fun coming up with creative and affordable ideas to fill each package – let us know if there are any other cute gifts to include!

Beehive Cloche

by Ashley Page Norton 

So many of my friends are having kids these days that I find myself working on baby showers all the time. Here is a cute idea for a party with a honey bee theme – perfect for a shower or a kid’s birthday. Making this beehive cloche is super simple, as it uses items you probably have on hand. They’ll be a great handmade touch to a bright, sunny party!
