Amy Cluck-McAlister, continues the Valentine’s theme this week with her Hot Cocoa Gift Basket. What a fun idea for those chilly days of February. The mason jar lids are lined with Bitty Bags in red and pink for a festive flair and the adorable tags are strung with Cherry and Cotton Candy Divine Twine. The best part, you can download the tags for free on her blog which is appropriately named Amy is the Party. We also have twine in solid red and solid pink available in the shop that would look great too!

6 Free Valentine Printables

January 19th, 2014 § 18 comments § permalink

One of my 2014 intentions is to strengthen my creativity muscle, which means I need to use it more. So, I sat down the other day and came up with six Valentine Printables I hope you’ll enjoy. I tried to design each Valentine so that young and non-as-young could use them. I purposely left the word “valentine” off a couple of the designs in hopes that they will get used all year long. If you download one (or more), please leave a comment letting me which one(s) you download. It’s always nice to know what is getting enjoyed.

Happy (early) Valentine’s Day!
Whitney

Cross Stitch Gift Tag Printable

December 17th, 2013 § 1 comment § permalink

This year I’m going a little old school style with my holiday wrapping. I’ll be using my favorite stand-by wrapping paper (brown kraft paper) and embellishing my gifts with Divine Twine, maybe some washi tape and these Cross Stitch Gift Tags. The gift tags simulate linen with cross stitched holiday words.

I tried printing the tags out on plain copy paper on my HP ink jet printer and on card stock on my Epson ink jet printer. Wow! What a color difference. (See photo below.)

Plain copy paper from HP printer on left; Card stock from Epson on right.

I prefer the color from the HP, but I really wanted the tags to be on heavier weight paper which my HP can’t handle, so I ended up using my Epson for my final tags. Your printer may produce the colors a little different, but regardless, you’ll have some sweet tags to accent your holiday gifts.

Please leave a comment if you download them. I’d love to know if  you’ll be using the tags.

Have fun gift wrapping!

Perfect DIY Treat + Recipe Printable

December 5th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

What makes a DIY treat perfect? Well for me, it has to be made from easy-to-find ingredients, easy to make, quick to clean up and taste beyond delicious. This Toffee Chex Treat ticks all those boxes, plus it’s easy to share and it travels well (hello road trip).  To make myself feel better when I’m eating waaaay more than I should of this stuff, I remind myself that the cereal is vitamin fortified and therefore this is a nutritious treat. Yeah, right.

Chex Treats 2

Last year we made and packaged this candy-coated, addictive treat (no lie. this stuff is addictive. beware.) for our neighbors at the holidays.

Chex Treats 3

We used Middy and Bigger Bitty Bags, Colored Tags, Glassine Bags, and Divine Twine for the packaging. We lined the Bitty Bags with the Glassine Bags so the buttery goodness wouldn’t soak through.

Chex Treats 1

It was such a huge hit that I thought I’d share the recipe on handy recipe cards. Just download, print and cut. If you end up giving a batch away, you could attach a recipe card to your packaging. That way it’s a gift that keeps on giving.

Tip: I’ve substituted Crispix for Chex if that is what is on sale. Still turns out great!
Enjoy!

Disclaimer: I did not invent this recipe. I got it off the internet a dozen or more years ago. It is called “School Fuel” on the Chex.com website. I renamed it Toffee Chex Treats because I think it describes it much better. The original recipe calls for chocolate to be drizzled over the treats, but I’m more of a purist and do not like chocolate interfering with my toffee taste. 🙂

This is not your ordinary holiday card. It can act as cheery wall decor or as a mobile. How fun would this be to receive!?

Hanging Holiday Card with reindeer “Vanna White”

It’s super easy to create. Just download our free Printable below and print out using a color printer. I used regular copy paper because that is what I had on hand, but I would recommend cardstock or heavy weight copy paper.

Cut out the rectangles and write your personal message in the blank rectangle. You can decide how many HAPPYs you want. I went with 4.

Printable assembled

Attach Divine Twine (I used Holiday) to the back of each rectangle using Petite Stickys (I used Red Stripes). Use 2 Petite Stickys on the last rectangle to keep it from tilting forward.

And ta-da! Your card is ready to mail to friends or family or you use it as decoration at home. If you are mailing it out, it fits nicely in a #10 envelope.

FREE Valentine Printable

February 7th, 2012 § 10 comments § permalink

That magical day is coming where you let the people you care about know that you care about them. Personally I think it’s a nice idea to let them know any and every day, so I created a Little Love Note and Petal Envelope Printable that can be used well past Valentine’s day. They are just 2 inches in size so they can be tucked away (in a bouquet of flowers, in a medicine cabinet, on the dashboard of a car, next to the alarm clock or on a breakfast tray) to be found by the recipient as a nice surprise. You’ll need a color printer and a pair of scissors. Print, cut, fold, write a note and sign. Easy peasy! I used copy paper, but card stock would be lovely too. Enjoy!
