Need to make something pretty in a jiffy? Just download and print for the most original label and template designs this side of the Mississipi. P.S. They’re free! (But you must send me your firstborn child as a thank you gift. I kid...I kid.)
It’s advent calendar time! Anyone who has read this site knows I love advent calendars. In our family we print out a list of Christmas related activities and put one in each box with a little toy or candy. Some activities are big, like “go see the Nutcracker” or “Sit on Santa’s lap” but others are simple, like: “Drink Spiced Cider” or “Hang Mistle Toe.” I started doing this as a way to avoid missing Christmas. Sometimes it gets so busy that we forget to do the things that make us love the Holidays in the first place. This helps me make time for the fun traditions and my children love it. (Check out our other advent calendars here.)
This might be my favorite advent yet. All you need is the free downloadable template and glue to make this little forest come to life.

I love the modern look when paper gets folded in facets. This modern paper vase tutoria is really easy to make and you can just slip it over a glass for a fancy look. It is easy to resize the template to go over a bigger or smaller vase if you need. (ps: Find the star tutorial here, and the moon pinata here.)

I’ve actually never been to a book baby shower, but I just love the concept. Books are such treasures! What a wonderful way to start a children’s library. Click below for a free Book Shower Invitation Printable!
Directions: Just print the cover (front + back if you choose) on cover stock, then the interior page on text weight paper. Use the guides to cut and fold. Staple the pages inside the black bar and you’re all set! Fill in the blanks with the appropriate information, then address the outside and mail as is! It’s fun and easy.
It’s Mother’s Day week! And if your mom has a fun sense of humor these printable tattoos might be the perfect thing to add to her day. Just order this tattoo paper, download the PDF and print! They are super easy to make and we had SO much fun putting them on. Just remember to put the letters on right side up! Unfortunately we turned the B upside down on our first try. Ooops!

This is the next post in my new series Styled Eats that focuses on how to package and make food pretty. This brilliant DIY picnic basket is the work of Alexis Birkmeyer. The materials to make this are really simple. Here we used an extra heavy butcher paper but you could even use poster board or a flexible cardstock. You just trace the template, cut it out and fold. So easy! If you wanted to use these for a bigger party I would call together some friends to help make them. These are a special detail that you can add when you are entertaining but they don’t feel fussy or too precious. Find the full instructions and more photos below.
