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  I originally made a version of these for my baby shower in a box that I did for Shutterfly.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.


Wrap chip board letters in washi tape.


 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!

Favorite Pinterest Finds: February 2013

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



6.  DIY Time-Out Chair

Listen, this is made with a stool and two liter bottles cut up.  Eat your heart out, punishment.  You just got creative.  http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/make-your-own-sand-filled-time-out-stool-164384
