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!

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?
