This Girl: Printable Ice Cream Cone Wrappers

Printable Ice cream wrapper

Is there anything better than an ice cream cone on a hot summer’s day? Cold cream dripping down your hand as you try to lick up all the goodness before it melts away. Mmmm. Personally, I’m a mint chocolate chip fan, but Oreo, cake batter, and peppermint are all close seconds. I try not to discriminate. To make your ice cream experience even better this summer, we’ve created some printable ice cream cone wrappers inspired by our favorite Mara Hoffman patterns (see below)! These are perfect for any gathering where ice cream is involved. I think I might even need to plan an entire party around the ice cream cones themselves! Create an ice cream bar with the cones wrapped in their printable wrappers, supply a million toppings and ice cream flavors, and let the guests go to town! I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

Our 5 favorite pink projects

We had another post planned for today and then Instagram went bananas for National Pink day so, taking a nod from Joy, I’m sharing our top 5 favorite pink projects. Pink is certainly the color of the moment and has been for some time. I try and think of what I would do without pink and I get stumped every time. It’s a neutral, it’s soft, it works with so many colors. Read on →

Midsummer Pole Cake Topper

Midsummer Pole cake TopperDid you know yesterday was Summer Solstice? Also commonly referred to as Midsummer, this day marks the longest day of the year. Every day from now on out becomes shorter until winter solstice in December. For those of us in the United States, this doesn’t seem that big of a deal. However, in Scandinavia, Midsummer celebrations rival Christmas in their magnitude! Given Scandinavia’s long, dark winters, it’s no wonder they want to celebrate a day commemorating endless light, sunshine, flowers, and warm weather. In Sweden, the celebration is centered on a large maypole, or midsummer pole, made of greenery and flowers. People sing and dance around the maypole, make flower crowns, grill and party all day and night long. It is a holiday to glorify all the best parts of summer!

Midsummer Pole cake Topper

In the past, we’ve thrown our own midsummer parties and they are pure magic! This weekend is Midsummer, so to celebrate on a much smaller scale, we’ve created a midsummer pole cake topper! It may not be as grand as the celebrations in Sweden, but we’d encourage you to make it as a reminder to enjoy every ounce of summer this weekend! Glad Midsommar!

See how to make your own midsummer pole cake topper!

All of which are great excuses to put a little extra pizazz into your party preparation! Nothing is more refreshing that an ice cold beverage in the sweltering summer heat. So to ensure that your drinks stay frosty and adorable, we’ve got some special DIY floral ice cubes for the fourth! Filled with edible blue and white flowers and garnished with some red berries, these are sure to make any beverage 4th of July worthy.

DIY Giant Candygram

DIY Giant Candygram

Remember candygrams? You’d buy a big piece of foam core and write a cute message in Sharpie using candy to replace some of the words? They’re never the most eloquent of messages and can look a bit tacky with all the mismatched candy packages, but it’s the thought that counts, right? And the candy, of course! That being said, we couldn’t help but want to dress it up in a pretty palette with this DIY Giant Candygram! To be honest, we’re pretty in love with it! It’s almost too cute to eat the candy, but we’ll make an exception 😉 With downloadable files, all you need to do is print off the materials and but the candy! Use it for a friend’s birthday, a thank you, or just a way to show a little love! Everyone deserves a little something sweet now and again…cough…*always*…DIY Giant Candygram

Printable files and how-to after the jump!
