Reindeer Food Bag Toppers

December 12th, 2011|Categories: crafts|Tags: , |0 Comments

Hi lovlies!I have been receiving a lot of emails about Reindeer Food and what bags to put them in. I have found a fabulous Australian source for these bags – Pack It In. You can also find them on their facebook page here. They have a huge range of really great quality bags but the ones I use specifically for my toppers are the 75mm x 100mm sized bags. I think these are also called the 75mm x 100mm giftcard bags.This is how I make Reindeer Food. It is really up to you what […]

easter toppers and kinder chocolate bar wrappers

April 7th, 2011|Categories: printables|Tags: , |0 Comments

Easter bag toppers and chocolate wrappers are now available in my store.These are super cute and have so many uses. Here I’m using the toppers on little bags filled with mini marshmallows. I used the chocolate bar wrappers to cover mini Kinder Chocolate bars. I think these Kinder chocolate bars are a great size for kids and find that it isn’t too much chocolate. Our kiddos don’t get a lot of chocolate at Easter so these are a great size for us.You could use the bag toppers as tent cards, too! Or attached to goodie bags like this or […]

easter toppers

These cute Easter toppers are now available in my store. They are so versatile and don’t need to be used just as cupcake toppers! Here are a few other ways we have used them in our home. My son will be taking these into school for his friends for Easter, I just cut the toppers out as squares and used double sided tape to attach them to a lollipop.I punched and tied a tag to a basket filled with Easter books. We always have a basket of Christmas books around at Christmas time, but when I […]

I absolutely love baking, and had wanted to make mini cupcakes for Noah to bring in to his class for his birthday last month, but I found myself just way too busy so went looking for an easier alternative.So I made up these little decorated lolly bag favours for him to give his classmates. These were really so easy. Just print and cut and stick on. Even easier if you use sticker paper, which is what I did here. Talk about quick! And don’t they look cute?!These labels are available in my store for you […]

growing up

January 7th, 2011|Categories: printables|Tags: , |1 Comment

We all know growing up means more responsibilities. I know I’m a grownup with responsibilities as we just paid for a major car service! Haha. {Oh okay and I have two kids and all that raising them entails but you know what I mean}Luckily when you’re 3 you don’t have to worry about that kind of stuff! Instead, your responsibilities are things like making your bed, and putting dirty clothes in the laundry basket. I made up a rewards chart for my little guy – I was tossing up between ‘chore chart’ and ‘reward […]

One of our Advent activities over the weekend was to make some Reindeer Food. This is a tradition in our home and I love the simple fun of it.All you need is some oats, sugar, food colouring {red & green} and some edible glitter if you like. Please make sure it’s edible glitter, as you’re putting this out in the garden and it may attract birds or other animals and if eaten you want to make sure the poppets will be ok!Here’s our set up:You want to find sugar crystals that are quite large […]
