Pixelated post-its photobooth

I told you more post-its projects would be on their way and here they are! A couple of weeks ago we made some post-its walls for an event (more about that next week) but last week I had some great helpers come to enjoy it some more. This photo booth idea would be perfect for any party or wedding. Add this to the post-its pinata, and you’ve got one fine pixelated party!

Thank you Cecilie, Katarina, JJ, and Hilmar for being fantastic models! And a huge thank you to Amanda Thomsen for working her photography skills. And one last thank you to Caitlin Watson for creating the lovely masks!

How to make a post-it heart pinata

I’ve been wanting to play with post-its FOREVER and finally got the opportunity last week to make this post-it heart pinata. Confession, they aren’t really post-its. I wanted a wider color palette so I had to make them myself. For the full tutorial, go to Brooklyn Bride.

A HUGE thank you to Amanda Thomsen for taking time out of her day to come take the final shots with our super models, JJ and Cecilie.

I have another project coming with post-its. Are you stoked?!

And if you’re really into pinatas, check out the wedding cake

Lollipop balloons

I saw something like these lollipop balloons ages ago and couldn’t remember where or what they looked like so I made my own version for Hello Bee. I thought they were the perfect pairing for the candy lights I made for Christmas. Can you tell I have a (reluctant) sweet tooth?

How to make an ombre wedding cake pinata

I have to say that this is one of my favorite shoots I’ve done. And there’s a lot more where these come from. ooOOOoo! I did this one for the Etsy wedding blog and talked about creating an interactive wedding favor, hence the fortune cookies inside with little love fortunes. I also thought a wedding cake would be a nice alternative to the couple who doesn’t really do wedding cakes or sugar. But let’s face, the real reason to have a pinata at a wedding is…who doesn’t want to hit stuff? I’m sure it would release a lot of tension for the couple as well as the wedding planners.

Get the full instructions here.

Thank you Amanda Thomsen for taking these beautiful photos!

Ombre flower holder

The last project of my DIY summer series is up on design*sponge. I made a flower hanger/holder for flowers and sticks and stuff, which I’ve found to be quite handy especially living near so much wonderful greenery. I’ve even attached it to my bike and gone around town collecting wildflowers and sticks to make my paper flowers. You can do the ombre part right in your kitchen with pots.

Thank you Hilda Grahnat for the photos and Amanda Thomsen for taking some more final shots.

For full instructions, check out the tutorial on design*sponge.
