Things have been crazy the last month or so with little time to update the blog or find inspiration, so once again I find myself turning to Martha Stewart, who is always guaranteed to inspire me. I receive the daily email ‘Darcy’s Idea of the Day’ and thought I’d share some recent DIY ideas.
This lovely banner is made using letters of the alphabet, each encircled by a different border. The letters are a whimsical take on the old-fashioned look of vintage typewriter keys. You can print the designs on standard paper and cut or punch them out; make two small slits near the top just inside the decorative border, and weave a 1/4-inch ribbon through. You can view the detailed instructions here. I think this would look great with the word ‘Love’ to hang on your cake table, or use your names to hang over a buffet table.
This idea uses pretty lace clip art to decorate tags and favour bags – it would look great on stationery too.
These sweet favour cones were made using crepe paper for the liner and card stock for the outer cone printed with a quarter-circle design. They’d be great for packaging candy almonds, chocolates or rock candy.
