Written by: louise Posted on Thursday, August 18, 2011 Hey lovely people! You know it’s Thursday right? Yup, that means we’re back with another cracking DIY project for you today! Woop! The lovely Fanni over at Fubumedia has been beavering away on this fun little idea to share with us today. As with all our projects, it’s pretty simple, all you need to do is print the free templates, and get sticking! You will need: 1 x favour box template 1 x thank-you flag template 2 x sheets A4 card (you could use complimentary colours to add an extra bit of pizzazz when your guests open the box!) A pair of sharp scissors Pencil Cocktail sticks or toothpicks Ribbon to coordinate with your wedding colours Method: Dowload and print the templates, and cut out the favour box template. Once you have the shape, fold all the little strips inwards, place your favours in the middle, and pinch all the strips together at the top before securing with a little bit of tape. and voila!

March of the penguins It's Sunday afternoon and the snow is falling like powdered sugar over a sweet dessert. My kiddies noses are pressed against the window as they watch this magical confetti turn the ground into a soft white blanket. Their excitement fills the air as they quickly gather their snow gear and prepare to step into a winter wonderland. Sometimes creativity blossoms out of the blue; sometimes it takes a little more effort; but if you just let inspiration take you away, anything can happen, including something like this....... May I show you something? Paper Tea Cups #1 I’ve been messing around with paper.
