Printable Tracing Paper Candy Wraps

by Alix Sorrell

I’ve always loved the look of vintage candy wrappers. This simple printable takes inspiration from all of those pretty packaged candies and looks especially great if you have some fun colored treats to showcase. Printing on tracing paper can be a little bit tricky but it’s well worth the end result. This printed paper also makes great tissue paper!

Crepe Paper Petals Wall Hanging

by Ashley Page Norton 

I love looking at images of flower torans, which are festive garlands hung in Indian households as celebratory decorations, and decided to figure out a crepe paper version. Torans are so fun - the patterns and colors are super cheerful. There are a million ways to use this technique – you can make a wall hanging, garlands, bunting, leis, etc., and you can scale them to suit whatever space you’re decorating. They would look great as a backdrop at a party or wedding!

Felt Birthday Banner DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

Do you know the cooking show Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee? I think sometimes crafting should be like that. I’m happy to cut out garlands for hours, but ask me to cut out felt letters and I might sigh loudly. This banner is really easy to make by purchasing pre-cut letters – and they come in all sorts of amazing colors. Using felt is great because there is no need to hem the edges, and gluing the letters on (instead of sewing) saves time too.
