Free Mothers Day Card Printable

I wanted to post this darling folding Mothers Day card. I hope you find it in time but if not there is always next year! I am sorry... I have been trying to find time to get this posted but I just could not get it posted any sooner.

It folds into a cute little pot of flowers!

Just in case you did not find this by Mothers Day here is a set of little cards that you can use year round. However I thought it would be nice to use one in a bouquet of flowers for Mom.

Free Floral Alphabet

Wow... I just looked back at my blog and I can't believe I have had so few posts this year. In my last post I mentioned that we had been moving my son. Part of that was the basement where we kept our storage from our move from California ten years ago... wow again... how time fly's! Anyway while moving our storage things I found a box of vintage jewelry that I had collected years ago and it really inspired me even more to create! I was a woman obsessed :)) I guess that is how I have always been :D I made so many pieces that I was going to list in hubby's etsy store but he felt that I was taking over so I opened my own. It is called The Boho Jewelry Box. I added a little etsy mini on my left hand sidebar if you would like to check it out. So now that I have it opened I should have more time to do a piece a week and still have time to play with my digital again.

I know mothers day is coming so I thought this little floral alphabet might come in handy. Hope you enjoy it!

Baby Bunny Buggy Bumpers Free Printable

Hi Everyone! ....no nothing bad has happened to me and I want to thank those who contacted me to make sure :)) I just have not been posting because we have been moving my son. He is going from a 4 bedroom house that he has lived in for eight years to a small church parish. They had collected much more than they had realized so it was a huge deal. They had to pay for a whole month extra just to sort through it all and find places for things to go. I hated missing Valentines because I love to make Valentines so much. But I think I am back so Easter is a go :)) I came across this little diecut while searching through my Easter stuff and thought you all might enjoy it.

Elf Yourself Puppets
Free Templates Patterns and Printable

One more post before Christmas. I did not plan this one but I wanted to do some "Elf Yourselves" with my grand kids. I looked for some free patterns but I did not find any really good ones, so I decided to make some. We had so much fun making memories! The three year old did need a little more help but he still had a blast! It is almost Christmas so tell your friends so they don't miss out of this fun activity with there little ones.


Aren't they cute!
I did not want to just print them to save on ink, these have so much color! I think the card stock looks better anyway. However we did print the hands, ears and faces. 
There are three full sheets to this set. The finished elf is about 20 inches tall. One sheet is the printable hands and ears and they should be printed on card stock. Then you will need to take a picture of your child and that should be printed on card stock as well. 
Then there are two sheets of patterns. Just print these on standard copy paper and use repositional glue to adhere them to colored card stock. Cut them out and peel off the patterns. To do the stockings, I just cut strips of red with my paper cutter, glued them across both legs and then trimmed the stripes off to the edge of the legs. We then added glitter glue to jazz them up! 

Feel free to pin the picture of the boys above but please do not pin the pattern download or the printable hands and ears. I would like everyone to stop by here to download them so they don't miss the instructions and all my other fun free downloads.

Enjoy!

DIY Book Page Poinsettias Free Pattern And Tutorial

I have been making some Christmas crafts myself too! along with being busy making some new ornaments, I needed something for the top of the tree. I decided I wanted to make some book page poinsettias to match the new book page honeycomb ornaments but every pattern that I found had perfect little petals and natural poinsettias just don't look like that...so I just made one.

Even though a natural poinsettia doesn't have book page print on them I still wanted them to have a natural shape :))
There is a link for the pattern below. This is what I came up with. 


Once it was completed I sprayed it with alcohol ink to give it an aged look. I liked it so well that I am doing some not just for the top but for the whole tree. I also tried one in red but I think I like the first one the best. I still have to get some beads to go in the centers. I will put them on a wire so they can just be stuck in the center. That way they can be removed so that they can be folded flat for storage. They are fast and easy and will keep from year to year... so go ahead and make a bunch! 



You will need: 
Old paper back books or sheet music... you could also print my Christmas news print that I did for the advent calendar. I am sure they would look good with what ever you choose. 

Instructions:
You can use my pattern or just cut some shapes you like yourself. Cut 15 petals, five for each layer of staggering sizes. If your making your own, start with that perfect petal shape and then cut some notches and waves into them. Make sure you leave two perfect leaves for each layer.  

I then used the coated lightweight jewelers wire. I did not have any floral wire and I thought that raw wire might discolor in time. However you could use either one. 
Lay each leaf on a glass surface or something that hot glue will not damage and put a dot of glue on the point of the leaf. 
Lay the wire onto the dot of glue so that one end will reach about three fourths down the length of the leaf. Also make sure you have about six inches of wire for the "stem" Then lay your glue gun kinda on its side and use the side of the hot tip of the glue gun to spread the dot down the wire. This takes a little practice but you'll soon get the hang of it. Do this with each petal. 

If your going to add glitter, do it now. It is just about impossible to add the glitter once the flower is assembled. 

To assemble the flower start with the five smallest petals and twist the wires three or four turns so that they hold together. Then arrange the second row just below that and twist three or four turns again. Now you've got the hang of it :)) so do the same for the third row, only this time twist all the wires together all the way down and wrap with floral tape. I used brown but if your doing red poinsettias you might want to use green. If you want to put them in a vase you could make a few larger ones to put further down on the stem. Just spritz them green. 

Spritz with alcohol ink and glitter spray if you like or leave them to age naturally.

Vintage Like Chenille Ornaments Snow People Free Printable

My grandsons and I made these little chenille ornaments for a craft bazaar at his church. I almost did not post this because the picture was so bad. I took it late at night and the ornaments went to the bazaar so I could not retake it... but I think you can still get the idea. They were fun to make and a great way to make memories with the little ones. My seven year old twisted the bodies and the three year old glued all the faces on. Then grandma dressed them up. I thought I would offer the little faces I did for them as a freebie here. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

Vintage Can Labels Free Printables

We have been working hard restoring our 1950's trailer and I saw a project on pintrest that gave me an idea for utensil storage. I added some hooks on the bottom as well for hanging potholders. However I don't have the potholders yet so I hung some utensils on them for the picture.


The three fruit label sheets are vintage but the three sheets I did for my camper projects were vintage inspired. Your free to use these for your personal projects and for your craft projects that you plan to sell. However they are not to be printed and sold or added to any digital downloads of any kind.
