DIY Tissue Paper Fringe Banner

FInal

When packing a gift bag, I always like to buy a coordinating tissue paper, but once the gift is wrapped I find myself with some leftover sheets that have nowhere to go! I could always save them for next time, but let’s be real here, I will most likely forget and grab another pack of tissue for the next gift. Instead of tossing them in the trash I decided to make a whimsical banner that would really bring the party! Read on to see how I created it!

National Crayon Day

IMG_6744

Happy National Crayon Day! The smell of waxy Crayola crayons always takes me back to my childhood when I used to spend hours coloring and drawing. Crayons inspire children everywhere to show off their own creativity in a fun way. Sadly, today Crayola has announced the retirement of Dandelion from their iconic 24 pack of crayons. We don’t know what color will be replacing it, but we had a few ideas of colors that could! Our question for the day was “If you were the newest color in the crayon box, what color would you be?”

If you were the newest crayon in the Crayola box what color would you be?

 

Real Life Gifting: Gracie’s Birthday Donation

Gracie With Donation Blog

This month we had a VERY special birthday here at the studio! Gracie, our studio mascot turned 2! We knew that we wanted to celebrate in a special way, but what do you do for the dog who has everything? Gracie is a playful rescue dog who loves people. She brings so much love and joy to our workday that we honored her birthday by sending some love and joy to the dogat the local Save A Dog shelter who are still waiting for their forever homes!

Gracies

Together we were able to raise enough money to purchase some items on the shelters wish list including dog beds, toys, leash and towels! Of course we wanted to get creative with the gift presentation and decided to display the items as a gift basket using a plastic storage tote. Once we had all of the items perfectly displayed in the tote we covered the top with clear cello and wrapped coordinating blue and lime wire ribbon around to attach the card! We folded and stacked all of the towels on top of each other to fit into our Watercolor Wishes Jumbo Gift Bag.

Cupcake 2

We kicked off the birthday celebration with some dog friendly cupcakes and a new squeaky toy. Gracie had so much fun on her birthday and we are so excited to see those wagging tails at Save A Dog when we drop the donation off this weekend! S
