Just recently in the Shop this week, two Save the Date designs! These pretties can be purchased in two ways: printed or in digital form for you to take care of the printing. You can find them here.

Everything mint during the holidays is wonderful, don’t you think? What about a mint-inspired printable project? One of the things I like making myself all the time is tags to attach on gifts. They’re such little small pieces but they can make quite the impression. I’m also a huge lover of pop up things versus flat printed things. So here’s a simple way to make your own pop up tags if you don’t have all the proper equipment to cut out your own custom shapes. Who knew overstepping this obstacle could be so easy? So today, let’s learn how to…

STEP ONE: Print the FREE tag printable on your choice of paper. You can download the file via this link: HOLIDAY TAGS.

STEP TWO: Score along the bottom edge of each colored rectangle. You can see what I mean in the image below.

STEP THREE: Fold and crease the edge. You should have a double-sided tag.

STEP FOUR: This is the embellishing part. Since you don’t have the proper equipment to cut out your own custom shapes (if you do, what a bonus!), choose some illustrated Christmas like the ones shown below. Cut the little individual illustrations out using your scissors and an exacto knife if you want to get really detailed.

STEP FIVE: Take your puff tape and use it to secure your cut illustrations on the colored portion of the tag.

Secure onto your wrapped gift with some extra ribbon and voila, you are good to go. Fill out the “to” and “from” on the other side of the tag and gift away.

Most times I plan parties and get-togethers weeks in advance. Sometimes only days. Therefore, having a quick and super easy to make invite is something ideal. I recently received a Harvest Brunch invitation in the mail (unfortunately I only got it the day of the get-together) and realized that I have yet to make an Autumn inspired printable invitation for you all. This is pretty much a five-minute invitation and can even be faster if you choose to skip the glitter part. So today, let’s learn how to…

STEP ONE: Make sure you download the printable for this DIY project. You can download the printable for FREE using these links: Autumn Party in BLUE and Autumn Party in ORANGE. This invite comes in two colors, blue and orange. This week’s theme is Blue Autumn, a different color take on fall, so the pumpkin is blue. But if you’re not digging the blue, totally okay. I made the same invite in a warmer orange. Then start collecting all the rest of the items you’ll need to put the tags together. The finished size of the invite should be 4×6″.

STEP TWO: Take your 3D paint (I like to call it puff paint) and apply it to the white lines of the pumpkin. Then cover all the puff paint with a glitter color of your choice. Make sure you use a sheet of blank paper underneath the invite when you’re applying the glitter. That way you can put the remaining glitter back into its container by folding the blank sheet up and pouring the glitter back.

STEP THREE: Shake off the excess glitter.

STEP FOUR: Write in your party info, coordinate with matching envelopes, and deliver! Hope your autumn party is a hit!

Today’s the first of November, and I’m all excited for all the holiday festivities approaching fast. I am ready to enjoy every last bit of it. And once all the holiday festivities start happening, so does a lot of gift giving. I’m getting ready for it already. Are you? Even though I attach a card to every gift, I also like to attach tags onto wrapped presents. So today, let’s learn how to…

STEP ONE: Make sure you download the printable for this DIY project. You can download the printable for FREE using this link: Winter Wishes Gift Tags. Then start collecting all the rest of the items you’ll need to put the tags together. The finished size of the tag should be 3×3″.

I chose to print the tags on a speckled/confetti white paper. I think you should go for this as well. It adds a special charm to the tag. Also, the file comes with six variations of the tag on one sheet for some extra fun.

STEP TWO: Take your hole punch and punch a hole in the top left hand corner of each tag.

STEP THREE: Take your peach hued solid papers and punch out three snowflakes for each tag using your snowflake punch {which is a Fiskars Small Snowflake Punch}. You’ll need three peachy colored sheets preferably, one color for each of the snowflakes you’ll be putting on your tag. I bought this punch at JoAnn, so you can get yours there as well if you don’t already have one. Or online at Amazon.

STEP FOUR: Take your rhinestones and apply them to one side of the snowflakes right in the very middle. Then cut tiny squares from your puff tape and stick those on the opposite side of the snowflakes.

STEP FIVE: Secure the snowflakes onto your tag in an order you like. You can use the image below as a guide.

STEP SIX: Take your gold twine and insert one end into your punched hole, tie a knot, and then secure to your gift. How easy was that?

Use all six variations!
