Happy loooonnnnnnnnnnng weekend! Happy Friday! Happy Birthday America! This week’s BFF is Diane from Pittypat Paperie where you will find all kinds of lovely inspiration and one of the sweetest bloggers in blogland.
Diane and I definitely share a love of paper as the name of her blog might imply. She does wonders with it.
Love these gorgeous paper bows she made. Who wouldn’t want to get a present decorated with one of these?
here and here. And this adorable idea she did for her grandchildren…a money box!
I hope you’ll go and visit Diane and explore. Now on with this week’s party! What are you cooking up for the Fourth? Whether you’re cooking for realsies or just whipping up something creative, link it up! You know the drill…if you made it link it…paper, jewelry, recipes, upcycle, recycle, sewing, décor, you name it. Just no advertising or Etsy stores please.

I knew Michaels had these:
While wandering through the wedding aisle, I found these great print yourself votive wrappers for $4.99 for a sheet of 25 ( $2.99 w/40% discount that you have to make a separate trip through the checkout line to use but it’s worth it to me so I did). That just gives me more $$ to spend at Michaels!
These are really easy to use because you go to the Gartner Studios website and download a template you can edit in Word that’s sized / spaced to fit the blank spot on your wrapper. Before I printed the actual votive wrappers, I printed mine out on a blank piece of paper and layered a sheet of the votive wraps over it just to make sure I got the spacing right.
Our school colors are red and gold / red and yellow so I put some gold bag stuffing whatchamacallit in a clear cello bag, tied with red or yellow ribbon and then attached a little “graduation cap” tag.
Pittypat Paperie created:
Diane to download! At less than $1 per votive, I like my price!
