(Used in this project: Scallop Favor Tags in Boxicle and Fest styles with Small Cellophane Bags and Printable Paper Ribbon.) Simple candy favors, for any occasion, are easy to make and always loved by guests who take them home (especially children). For these 4th of July favors, I chose to use handmade twist ties instead of ribbon to tie up small cellophane bags filled with cherry and blueberry Jelly Bellies. I first read about making twist ties here and knew I wanted to try it with our … [Read more...]
A healthy snack for children’s party favors
(Used in this project: Small Rectangle Labels and Small Circle Labels in Cherish Hearts style with Small Window Tin-Tie Bags.) Another easy project with great results! Put together a mix of goodies that children love, but make them really good by being sure they are foods that parents would love for their children to eat. I made dried figs last fall from my fig tree which almost every year produces boxes and boxes of too many figs any family can possibly eat. I love figs, but you can’t … [Read more...]

(Used in this project: Square Labels in Metropolitan style.) An "Upshernish" is a special ceremony that celebrates the 3rd birthday of a Jewish boy, with a traditional first hair cut! Roots of a tree need to grow strong in order to have a strong foundation and bear fruit. In Jewish law, one does not harvest the fruits from a tree during its first three years, nurturing its roots, so it may withstand the elements of nature, and stay strong. So too, we leave the hair of a Jewish boy uncut for … [Read more...]
For A Baby Shower
(Used in this project: Oval Labels in Champagne style and Paper Tin-Tie Bags.) The calling card of a girly, dainty party is the cucumber sandwich. I’ve seen them from time to time, but never tried them, until I attended a coworker’s baby shower— surely the greatest reason for a girly, dainty party is the arrival of a new baby! Cucumber sandwiches are surprisingly flavorful and refreshing— and of course wonderfully healthy. After experimenting with a bunch of different flavor … [Read more...]

(Used in this project: Rectangle Labels in Henna style.) Matchbox shrines are one of my favorite craft projects and I thought the idea could transform well into a beautiful wedding favor. Decorate blank matchboxes with personalized labels from Evermine and fill them with small trinkets and treasures that symbolize your love and wedding day. I included the phrase, "Live my the Sun. Love by the Moon." to match the mood and theme of the new Henna style. The final result turned out beautifully … [Read more...]
With Free Printable Cupcake Wrappers!
(Used in this project: Collar Labels, Circle Tags, Round Coasters and Free Printable Cupcake Wrappers in Lil' Bug style.) Life can get busy with family, friends, work, community all vying for time. Nevertheless, when a little person enters the world, it's a good time to slow down and celebrate his arrival. The ceremony will be lost on the new babe, but the joy and happiness that surrounds the family and friends is that certain kind of special that can breathe new energy into days that pass … [Read more...]
