A Camp Party

by Casey Baudoin

Summer and camp are a perfect match for each other.  Think of the movie, Parent Trap, when planning your camp party.  T-shirts, old pennants, canoe cards, smores, campfires… I could go on and on!

Foil Space Mobile

by Kathleen Ballos

One of my favorite unexpected craft supplies are the foil baking sheets available at grocery stores. They are so affordable and versatile! This time I’ve used them to make these simple night sky mobiles – wouldn’t they be fun for a space party? I made a few of rocket party poppers to go with it. So fun!

Watermelon Place Cards DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

Did you know watermelons are 91% water? You will only need a cup of water to dip your paintbrush in for these watermelon place cards. Perfect for National Watermelon Day – August 3rd! These could also make a festive garland – instead of putting a name on the cards, just fold them over some string and use tape or glue to secure. Happy Watermelon Day! (PS – Watermelon favors!)

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!
