I bought these cheap paper doily die cuts from Hobby Lobby in three colors. Use them with stickers and wrap them in washi and holy cow, I love!  I originally made a version of these for my baby shower in a box that I did for Shutterfly.  At my craft party, my friend made the two bigger bag tags/gift boxes.  The “Just For You” Stickers came from Hobby Lobby and were used in the baby shower box blog as well.

 Bakers twine is a cute combo with any gift in a million ways and I’m loving using it with these tags like the one I made above for the Spice Tea gift bottles.

I’ll be posting a few more of these tags that I made on my Facebook page.  Follow me there and on Pinterest.  Pin and enjoy!

If you already follow me on Pinterest and you wonder where these pins are, I don’t pin them until the day this blogs post.  Stealth mode, players.

 

1. Re-Done Folding Chairs

Spray paint and recover ugly folding chairs and as we all know, regular folding chairs are all ugly.  Genius!  http://www.designformankind.com/2012/08/makekind-22/

2.  Fridge Mats

www.itsorganizedchoas.com has these cute DIY fridge mats that make your fridge cute and easy to wipe down.  I mean, not much looks better than my dripped milk and ketchup runs but I’m willing to give it a try.  http://www.u-createcrafts.com/2012/09/diy-fridge-coasters.html

3.  Press and Seal Bib

Hold on to your genius hats:  Put press and seal saran wrap on your children’s clothes during craft time to protect their clothes.  When they’re done just pull off and toss.  I’m going to write a song about this called “Fabulous-er”.  I love this for feeding time also because nothing can fall behind the neck of the bib and still get on the shirt.  I also love that I used the word feeding time like children are cattle.  http://cfabbridesigns.com/miscellaneous/kids/pressn-seal-art-bib/#.URsW4mfFl7U

4.  Up-cycled Shirt Bags

Take an old shirt, cut off the sleeves, hem where you cut, and then sew bottoms together.  Boom.  Shirt Bag.  In your face, Kroger bags.  http://www.moredesignplease.com/moredesignplease/2010/6/6/diy-recycled-t-shirt-tote-bag.html

5.  Mason Jar To-Go

Take a mason jar, cut a hole, fit with washer and have the cutest, most non-plastic on-the-go cup around.  PERFECT for parties and favors.  This could be personalized a thousand ways.  I die.  I love it.  http://www.fineandfeathered.com/blog/2012/08/diy-mason-jar-to-go-cup.html
