People love things that are about them…right? These personalised invitations are a great idea, especially when you need to keep numbers down!
You will need:
– A piece of paper/card for each person you’re inviting
– A photo of each person
– A pencil
All you need to do is glue down the photo of the person on the back of the card, then write the party details on the front!
I recently had my birthday party, and for my invites I did a drawing of each of my friends! Its a great way to keep down numbers if you’re struggling 😉
One day, I was sitting there thinking, there are so many inspirational quotes in the world that I always forget about…how can I remember them all? What could help me on tough days? The answer, is a quote book!
You will need:
– 1 piece of A4 paper (any color, but black or white look best)
– A gel pen or thin felt pen that will show up on the paper (e.g if the paper’s black, you’ll need a white pen)
Firstly, cut the piece of paper into quarters. Layer the pieces on top of each other, then fold them in half to make a booklet. Then, staple the centre of the booklet two or three times along the fold (preferably with the flat bit of the staple on the outside of the booklet). Now all you need to do is write quotes in the booklet!
Quote books look nicer if the writing is really small, and you start on the cover, rather than inside the booklet.
Try to work it so each page finishes at the end of a quote.
Use something like an arrow or star in between quotes so you don’t get confused.
Try not to repeat quotes!
Try to keep to a theme – inspirational quotes, song lyrics, quotes that remind you of someone, etc.
Its a great gift for a friend or family member!
I’ve made a collection of quote books, including a paramore lyrics one for my best friend, an inspirational quotes one for another friend’s mom, and a song lyrics one for my boyfriend. Here’s the one I’ve made for myself:
In this post I’ll teach you how to make a paper plane hanging decoration!
You will need:
– 12 pieces of A4 paper (If you don’t have that much, or if you want to make a mini version, grab three pieces and cut them into quarters.)
– String or transparent fishing line
– Needle or sharp object to poke a hole through the paper with
– Space to hang it up!
Firstly, fold the pieces of paper into 12 separate paper planes.
Then, cut the string to the length you want your hanging decoration to be (my mini version is a metre).
Divide the paper planes into groups of four, and lie one of the groups out in front of you (leave the rest aside for now).
Thread the needle.
Grab one of the paper planes, turn it over so its facing bottom up, and push the threaded needle in about 1cm from the end.
Pull the string through until there’s a ‘tail’ of about 20cm hanging off the end.
Next, push the needle in about 1cm from the other end of the paper plane, and pull the string taut.
Do this with the other three planes, and then take the needle off the end of the string. You should now have a trail of paper planes!
Now you need to do the same thing twice more (one for each set of four). You should end up with three rows of paper planes, like this:
Now all you need to do is hang them! You can either tie the ends of the string to push pins and pin them to the wall, or you can use lots of blu-tack like me (a great idea if you’re only renting your house!).
