I refuse to believe that summer is ending, but back-to-school shopping campaigns are hard to miss. Cue the playing violin. To celebrate the end of the summer, I have a new contributor to Lars, Monica Lynch, who has created a beautiful lemon-themed end of summer invitation, thank you card, and desktop wallpapers for your phone and computer. I’m putting it on immediately!
Monica has created beautiful work for Free People and now Anthropologie and I’m so glad to have her on board with her beautiful design work.
As I was planning my Valentine’s Day projects, I realized that not once had I ever offered free printable Valentines to you. For shame! In true Lars fashion, I let the flowers do the speaking and used the language of flowers tradition once again. I created 5 Valentine’s based on antique botanical illustrations and set with the flower’s meaning and of course, cheesy puns–aside from pink and red, puns are why I love Valentine’s Day. 4 of them–tulip, wild flowers, poppy, pansy–I’m offering here on this post and the rose one I’m offering on my newsletter coming out this week (so you better subscribe!!! See side bar on right to sign up!). Is that not motivation?!
Guys, I’m WILD FLOWERS for you. Do you even know how much I love horrible puns?!
Yesterday I showed the adorable printed party crowns (see last post) for New Year’s that Kate Zaremba illustrated and designed. Today I have some fun printable napkin rings to go with them. They’d be great fun on your New Year’s eve table. There are 10 fun designs to choose from!
Remember the adorable toppers we created last year with gift wrap from Kate Zaremba? Well, we collabed again on some and she created some adorable printable crowns that would be perfect for New Year’s Eve celebrations. I’ve already printed my own and used them for a few parties this holiday season. I gussied them up a bit with some washi tape and pom poms on the 10 adorable designs. See how we did it below.
Step 1: Print off the PDF (2 per crown)
Step 2: Cut out the crown with a craft knife or scissors
Step 3: Put the two crowns together. I secured mine with tape in addition to the built in locking system.
Step 4: Adorn the crowns with embellishments. I added washi tape at the base and pom poms at the tops with glue gun. I used pom pom trim and cut the trim part off for the little poms.
Enjoy! Happy new year!
