Free Printable: Another Mason Jar Label

I did mention that I entered the World Label Mason Jar Label Design Contest right? From 100 some entries, mine was chosen to be 3rd place - so I'll be sharing the labels I made with you guys. 


It is available in five whopping colors - yes, five! With two polka-dot print ones. I love the polka dot ones to most, but I still don't have colored ink to print them out... hahaha. So I just settled with the black and white ones. 


Its style is very similar to the other mason jar label I posted, so if you loved that one I'm pretty sure you'll love this one as well. You can print them on the suggested label stickers or on normal sticker paper and just cut them out.


It comes in two different designs as well - use one as a top lid label and the other as a front label. I love the elegance it adds to the jars - don't you?


You can download these labels on the World Label blog by clicking here. Do you like giving gifts in mason jars? Hope your week is great!

DIY: Chunky Shell Stone Bracelet

Let's face it - most of us are procrastinators (amiright?). But most of us want to give something personal and handmade to the special people in our lives to show we care. With mother's day approaching, here's a really easy jewelry DIY for your mom/mom-inlaw/mom's mommy friends - guaranteed to put smiles on their faces!


Supplies:


Here's the easy peasy tutorial:


First you choose stones/shells that are nearly identical in make. 


Cut up a length of wire and using a round-nose jewelry plier, make a loop on each end, sealing the bead between. Don't know how to do that? Here's a handy video tutorial that shows you how. Anyway, do those with the other beads - you want 3 or 5 (if you have slightly smaller beads).  


Link them up by opening one loop end and attaching it to the other stone's looped end. Repeat until you've linked all of your beads. 


Now it's time to assemble your bracelet - above shows you a sequence of how to assemble it using your jewelry pliers. I realized it was too big so I cut it down by half (2 chunky links instead of 4 on each side).


Here's how it looks like mid-assembly (with all my modifications). If it's too small or you want the option of adjusting the size, attach a bracelet chain extender, or just link more jump rings together before attaching the big jump ring at the end. 


After that, you're done! This project didn't even take 15 minutes. It's seriously that easy :)


My mom walked in on me taking final photos of this so she saw it already - and she loved it. Now she wants me to make more for her mommy friends. Oh, mother.


I loved this bracelet so much that I'm thinking of making one for myself as well. Would you make this too? In what color? Leave me your lovely thoughts in the comments section - I always love reading about what you guys are up to! Hope you have a great weekend ahead.

Free Printable: Handwritten Hello Flag Tags

I have been itching to make tags. I swear I think I need to open a store just so I could make more tags, I have a ton of them in my possession. I was practicing my calligraphy (non)skills the other night and came up with decent word art to share with you guys. Download the printable at the end of the post!


I've attempted making calligraphic tags with my own "calligraphy" (if my sucky handwriting would pass as that, lol) in the past without any success - I think most of what I do are too... plain. I don't know, I think I still need to work on it. I have a long way to go, but this handwritten Hello is quite okay, isn't it?

At first I made some cloud-shaped tags with the Hello but they didn't turn out quite as pretty as I hoped they would be. I decided to make just normal tags - but then I came across some really pretty flag tags and thought I'd just do that instead! (And then when I clicked my preview button for this blog post I noticed they matched the flag tags scattered on my blog :D)

These guys measure 1" x 3". Each page comes with 18 tags that's easy to cut - there are guidelines, of course. You can use them on a variety of things - as gift tags (of course), scrapbook embellishments, greeting cards or even add to an envelope for added prettiness. 


Are you as obsessed with tags as I am? Please tell me you are! Haha. And don't forget to share, pin and subscribe if you liked this post! Tomorrow's Friday, just one more day till the weekend!

Handmade Holiday Presents: DIY Bingo Tote Bag

It's time again for another installment of Handmade Holiday Presents! Sometimes it's tough to find the perfect gift when all you know about the person is one specific thing. Or a few. That's why sometimes it's easier to make something with them in mind instead. I made this one for my fiancee's grandma who absolutely loves bingo. You can make the print using different materials. Read on to find out how!

Free Printable: 8-bit Hearts Triangle-Shaped Box


My fiance is a game freak, moreover, he is a lover of the old retro ones (the old Super Mario, Pac-Man, etc etc) and therefore, I try to get/make him stuff from the things he likes (although I tend to make the 8-bit characters because they're easier to make~) Anyway, with Valentines coming around, I decided to make some candy boxes with a geeky twist, and now I'm sharing it with you!

Free Printable: Candy Heart Gift Wraps & Tags


Who doesn't love candy hearts? Or at least the cuteness of them? I know they may not taste very well, although I kind of like the first few ones I eat (and then I'd get tired of them). Candy hearts are the perfect little reminders that Valentines day is around the corner. So, I thought of making some cute wrappers with matching gift tags to share with you. And yes, it's still more than a month away - and while I'm not particularly excited about this holiday (no, I am not an valentine-hating person...though I used to be lol), I have prepared the following links for you to click and download.
