Brie again, from Like the Cheese, and I’m here to remind ya’ll that teacher appreciation week is right around the corner. How cute are these adorable lil’ apples. They make the darndest gift toppers, don’t you think?
Hello Lemon Thistle-ians! It’s Brie again, from Like the Cheese, and I’m totally stoked to be sharing with ya’ll, for my second post, these DIY Tissue Paper Party Sticks. If you didn’t catch my very first post last month, these DIY Boombox Valentine’s, be sure to give that bucket of cuteness a gander! Alright, lets talk about todays fringed goodness.
I used these cute party sticks as drink stirrers, but how perfect would these be as cupcake toppers or food picks? Like, totally perfect! They definitely add MAJOR pizazz in the food or drink department!
Hi and Hello! My name is Brie (like the cheese) and you can find me blogging over at like-the-cheese.com, a place where I can catalog my favorite projects and post anything I’m passionate about. A bit about myself? Well, I’m a twenty something year old Utah’n who loves anything that deals with DIY crafts, parties, yummy food, paper making, decor, design and really good photography. I’ve been married for 5 years now to a good look’n hunk, whom I gave my number to at a bakery I used to work at (written on a PB&J sandwich). A cute side note, we were married in that very same bakery just six months later (AW). Together we have a fur child named Bowsky (yes, named after the ‘Dude’ from The Big Lebowski) and I also have a love for Dr. Pepper and chocolate (insert flavor here) cupcakes. Okay, enough about me. I’m so stoked that Colleen asked me to be a contributor for this ah-mazingly great blog, Lemon Thistle. Yowza! Such an honor. Thanks so very much for having me. I’m equally as stoked to share a project that I’ve designed exclusively for the lovely readers of Lemon Thistle, and I’ve been so antsy to share it with y’all today. Shall we get down to business?
Okay, if you’ve been to any craft store or dug through the Target dollar bins, you’ve seen these cute mini treat boxes that seem to be EVERYWHERE, especially for Valentine’s Day. They either come in a four pack of the mini mini’s or they come in a bigger size, which is a two pack (from what I’ve seen at Target, Michaels and Joann’s). Now they’re cute and all as is, but I wanted to reinvent them a bit (you can see my obsession HERE). Jazz em’ up if you will. So I shed their pre-packaged paper jackets and dressed them up in something a bit more rock n’ roll. I came up with these printable boombox sleeves, that come with a YOU ROCK tag, that attaches to their wee lil’ boombox handles. Just perfect for Valentine’s Day if you ask me. I designed two different sizes in three different colors (the hot pink being my favorite) and they are available for download below. Oh, and did I mention they’re free? Yes! Love freebies! If you think your child would love to ROCK these Valentine’s Day “cards” at school this year (I know my inner child does), scroll on down for the supplies/instructions and get rock’n.
