Some of my favourite photos around Pinterest are of sparkler send offs at weddings. They’re just SO much fun and magical to be a part of. I mean… look at how great this is?!

Today we want to share a simple printable to make a sparkler send off easy and to dress up the actual sparklers you give out to guests (and to let them know what they’re for!). We made it a simple grey so you can match it to almost any wedding decor (and by this time, it’ll be dark anyways).
Just download these printables RIGHT HERE. They print out three to a page, and we recommend cardstock. You can see ours has some print lines SO we also recommend getting them printed at a copy shop for laser quality. Cut them out- we’d also recommend a paper cutter, especially if you’re doing enough for every guest! This little guy only cost about $12 and works like a charm.
Then, tape on your sparklers! We love this gold foil tape and it sticks even better than washi tape. We just picked it up from the craft store.
Ta-da! Instant sparkler send off.
Today we’re bringing you some fun free printable bookmarks that are all about love. We used a watercolour background in some springy colours for these sweet little bookmarks. With DIY tassels, they’re perfectly darling. We think they make an awesome wedding or shower favor. Ready to see how they’re made?
To get started, download and print the free file (grab it here) on cardstock and cut them to size. When you have that done, it’s time to make your tassels! I’d like you to know that we’ve found the easiest way to make tassels in a hurry. So if you’re making a bunch- we’ve got you covered. You can get packs of embroidery thread from the dollar store (it’s not the same texture as regular embroidery thread but it’s perfect for tassels. Cut them in half and tie the folded end… see!? SO quick. No wrapping for eeeever.
Then, take a piece of thread and a darning needle (those are the ones that are super thick- for wool and such) and punch it through your bookmarks to tie off.
That’s it, that’s all. One bookmark at each place setting would make a pretty colourful tablescape, or stack them neatly in a basket for guests to pick on their way out.
Is anyone here a last minute person? You have good intentions to do things early… but it always seems to be the last minute? I know, I’m one too most of the time. So in the spirit of the last minute, I thought today we’d whip up some watercolour valentines day cards for you… and since all you need to do is download and print- you won’t even need to run out to the store to grab them. But you might need to call ahead and make reservations for your date, we can’t do that for you.
We’ve made four versions for you to choose from, download the PDF and print the page of your choosing. Could it get any easier?
The four versions available are: BE MINE VALENTINE / XO XO XO / YOU ARE MINE / I LOVE YOU
