Icelandic Paper Poppy + The New JOANN

Icelandic Paper PoppyIf you’re a crafter, creator, designer, or maker of any means, chances are you’ve been to JOANN to fulfill your supply needs. Our local JOANN practically knows us by heart we go there so often! We were lucky enough to partner with Joann to help them reintroduce their new and improved brand. Becca and I (and Baby J!) traveled to New York to “Experience the New JOANN” and teach attendees how to create an Icelandic paper poppy. We joined Naomi of Bakers Royal and Kim from Sweet Red Poppy to bring “Handmade Happiness” to life in multiple forms. It was such an incredible night to be amongst so many talented and passionate makers. These are our people! JOANN is no longer just a fabric store. So make sure you go and explore your nearest location!

DIY Rattan Sunburst Mirror

DIY Rattan Sunburst Mirror

Sunburst mirrors are definitely having a moment and I’m all about it. You’ve probably seen them popping up around the design world, I’ve got one in my kitchen! I happen to love rattan–furniture, accessories, you name it! There are lots of beautiful rattan mirrors out on the market right now, including lots of vintage beauties! They can cost a pretty penny though so we decided to make this DIY Rattan Sunburst mirror for only $25! And that will allow you to make 2-3 mirrors! It’s much easier than you’d think and the end result is so stunning, no one would ever guess you made it.

So let’s make some mirrors!

Bastille Day or French Independence Day is July 14th. What better way to celebrate than with Printable Parisian Placemats featuring illustrations completed with delectable French pastries! Marie Antoinette gets a wig of Profiteroles, Napoleon Bonaparte has a croissant hat, and Notre Dame flaunts stain glass-French Macaron windows! These are perfect for a Paris-themed brunch, party, or get together and make setting the table a breeze and a cinch to clean up! Simply send them to your local printer, pair with a red gingham tablecloth and blue and white striped napkins, and but all the French pastries!Printable Parisian Placemats

Royal Wedding Floral Tea Party

Royal Wedding Floral Tea Party

Sometimes an occasion just calls for a tea party. And who does tea parties better than the Royals? We were inspired by the lush florals that adorned Prince George’s Chapel on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding day. Were you able to catch a glimpse? The arches were covered with white roses and plenty of foliage to create an almost ethereal look. We pared down the look so it would be appropriate for an elegant centerpiece. We used a mixture of tissue paper, crepe paper, and cardstock to get a really lovely mix of textures. Of course, we have to include our Royal Wedding mugs to complete the look!

Birthday Bucket List

Birthday Bucket List

Birthdays are one of our favorite things to celebrate and we celebrate an awful lot of them during the summer! No complaints here. A member of the Lars team had a great idea to seek out some of her friend’s favorite things so she could add them to her own bucket list! She wanted to know their favorite book, Netflix show, flower, restaurant, etc.. so she could try them out within the next year. What a sweet idea, right?! So we made a printable template that you can use to hand or send to friends to fill out and return. You’ll end up with loads of new suggestions, plenty to keep you busy with for the next 12 months! What a wonderful birthday present, right? We’re thinking of making this a tradition! Just alter the questions, (or keep them the same) and send them out year after year.
