Whoever invented the “Around the Clock Bridal Shower” deserves a high five. Such a good idea! Each guest receives an invitation with either Breakfast—8am, Lunch—noon, Dinner—5pm and “Dessert”—10pm. They then purchase a gift according to their assigned time/meal. It makes sure all your bases are covered…a bit of practical and a bit of fun!
Instructions: 1) Download the free printable below and print out each invite. If you so choose, you can print the stripes on the back. Who doesn’t love some extra stripes?!? 2) Cut out and fold in half. Easy!
Are you a cone or cup person? I was usually a cup type of girl myself (save a few calories? why not!) But why eat them at all when you can use them as a vase and pass on feeling the guilt. Now, that’s my type of treat. These paper flower ice cream cone bouquets would be perfect for birthday parties, a good cheer up, or just the floral/ice cream lover like myself.
Materials: ice cream cone (waffle or sugar), x-acto knife, glue gun, cutting board, scissors, skewers about 3-4″ long, garden pot 2″ in diamter(optional to be used as stand), bright colored paper for flowers, green paper for leaves, striped paper for cone covers (free download here)

I love boxes…all shapes, all sizes…colors, patterns…you name it I probably love it. For Valentines Day, I thought it would be fun to design some custom boxes you can print off and make from home. They are a great way to dress up your small gifts or party favors for February 14th.
How To: Get some plain white card-stock and print the template from the link below. Fold along each edge (tabs included). Then use a glue stick to attach the tabs to the inside of your box. Let your box dry for a minute or two before filling with goodies. Enjoy!

I’ve always had a soft spot for pinwheels. No matter how old I get, I have a feeling I’ll always enjoy them. Click the link below to download the template…follow the simple step by step instructions and you’ve got a colorful party favor, decoration or even activity for your next party!
Tip: If these colors don’t match your next party, just print off the template and use paper of your own!
Step 1: Gather supplies (cutting board, ruler, scissors or exacto knife, pins, and pencils or straws). Print off colors and patterns of choice (front + back). Mix and match the colors and stripes to your hearts content.
Step 2: Place your template on paper and cut around edges. The template fits two squares per page, so space accordingly! Use the diagonal lines to cut your flaps.
Step 4: Fold your flaps parallel with the cut. Make sure the end reaches beyond the middle of the pinwheel. (see details above)
Step 5: Take a pin and poke a hole through the end of each flap. Once through all four flaps, press through to the back of your pinwheel.
Step 6: Push pin through the eraser of a pencil. Test the pinwheel for pin length, then cut off the sharp point with scissors or wire cutters. Push the now dull edge of the pin flush with the eraser. They stay put very well…but just to be safe you can always glue it in place.
These pinwheels take very little time to make. They are fast and fun and perfect way to add some color to your next party. Click the link below to download.
