Over Sized Happy Birthday Sign

I created this engineer print sized (36"x24") Happy Birthday sign printable for my Etsy Shop. It is neutral so it can go with ANY color scheme! The best part is you can use it OVER and OVER.  I would have put it on my fireplace mantel, but my husband was set on putting a TV over it. So my range hood is my best option. Luckily my kitchen is open to my family room so it works. You can add a banner under it or tie balloons next to the sign to dress it up. 

I bought a 36" x 24" thin board from Lowe's (approx $6) and used spray adhesive to attach the sign. If you use this method go slowly, start from one side and slowly smooth it out and spray a little at a time as you go. Engineer print paper is thin and can wrinkle or tear easy. 

My favorite place to order engineer prints is Alpha Graphics. It only costs me $4 for a 36"x24" black and white print.

Popcorn Bar

I recently created this Popcorn Bar DIY printable kit for my Etsy Shop, Party Crush Designs.
A few years ago I put together a popcorn bar for my daughter's 13th birthday. 
The kids all loved creating their own mixture. 

Here are some photos from her party to give you an idea of how you could set it up. 


Caramel Apple Kit

This is the updated version of my caramel apple kit. 
It made more sense to me to be able to include the apples.
 This printable is stapled or attached to an 8"x10" paper bag, which allows you to 
fit all of the ingredients necessary to make caramel apples. 

This is super quick and easy to put together. It makes the perfect fall gift for
neighbors, friends, co-workers, teacher, etc!

Start a New Thanksgiving Tradition!

I was trying to think of a fun activity for the kids to do on Thanksgiving. This game was a hit! The teens and adults joined in too.
The best part is that it is super easy to prepare. Just print off the poem and two copies of the turkeys. Cut out around the squares and tape them to sticks. If you want to preserve the game to play year after year I would suggest laminating the turkey squares. That will also protect them from bad weather.
The poem is 8.5"x11". I stapled mine to a 10"x13" paper bag. I purchased my bag at Michael's craft store. I have also seen that size at Walmart. Both stores also sell the wooden sticks.
Once all 12 turkeys are collected hand out the prizes. I bought a bunch of treats and toys from the dollar store. 

If you try this out I hope your family loves it as much as mine did!
