Printable Party Poppers

Printable Popcorn Poppers:

Christmas is tomorrow! What better to celebrate than with these printable popcorn poppers which I found at ohhappyday.com.

What you'll need:
- 3 pieces of 8.5 x 11 colorful card stock
- 1 piece 8.5 x 11 white card stock(for tags)
ruler
glue (not pictured)
screw punch or hole punch
string
How to do it:
1. Print out the Printable Popcorn Poppers on 8.5 x 11 colorful card stock.
2. With the bone folder, score all indicated fold lines on the popper. The score lines will go through the center of the triangle shapes and then perpendicular above & below the triangles (see template).

3. Using the craft knife, cut out the popper template.

4. Fold all of the scored lines on the popper using the bone folder.

5. Cut out the triangle shapes by folding each side and cutting with scissors (see photo for detail).

6. Use bone folder again to fold the scored lines that are above and below the triangles. These will be the ends of the popper.

7. Glue the small flap and assemble the triangle shape popper by pressing the small flap under the large flap. Allow glue to dry.

8. Once the popper has dried, press the triangle cut-outs inward and tie off one side with pretty string or ribbon.

9. Stuff your popper with popcorn! Cut out one of the “pop” tags and punch a hole in the top using the screw punch or hole punch.

10. Tie off the popper some with the tag and string.

DIY Cat House

DIY Cat House:

I have many cats at home and they all like sleeping inside or on something. Buying a house for your cat can be very expensive especially if you have a few like me. So why not make your cat their very own house with stuff I'm certain you already have at home.



What you'll need:
- a box
- a t-shirt
- 2 metal hangers


How to do it:

1. Grab your box. Cut of the edges or tuck them into the box.

2. Untwine your hangers.

3. Make them into an arch shape.

4. Overlap them like so. Secure them with a wire or tape.


5. Put the t-shirt on the box and make sure your cat can fit through the neck hole.





Done! How practical!

Enjoy!

Mini Tribal Cubes

Mini Tribal Cubes:

I bought these small cubes a while ago and was planning on doing something The Hobbit related. But after staring at my black and white tribal patterned pillow, I thought "why not make tribal pattern cubes to match?", so that's what I did! They are quite cute for decorating a shelf or if they are bigger and heavier they could serve as book ends. That would be a next great DIY! 




















What you'll need:

- tribal print (black and white)
- small wooden cubes
- glue
- scissors




















How to do it:

1. Cut out six squares the same size as the sides of your cube.













2. Glue them one by one on each side of the cube until the cube is covered.













Done!




















Enjoy!
