This year my kiddos are absolutely obsessed with all things Star Wars (who isn't?!). So I naturally assumed we would use my old Yoda Best Valentine design again this year. Ohhhhh, how silly of me to think life could be... Continue reading

Hi Mindy, I used cardstock. I think regular weight paper would probably be too flimsy!

Yay, I'm so glad to hear they turned out!! Yes, I just cut a slit where the hand is and then carefully slipped the glow stick through, and secured with a bit of tape on the back! Thanks for the comment!

When I created the pattern I was aiming to fit kids roughly 6-8 years old. That being said, my daughter is now 10 and it still works great! The ribbon around the neck was a little long for smaller/younger kids, so in those instances I just tied a knot to shorten the length. Hope that helps!

oh shoot, sorry for the confusion and lack of a download! I figured it would be too large for anyone to print, so didn't know a good way to do one. But you are a GENIUS! I'm fairly certain that a tablecloth would work, and be much much cheaper! I've even purchased super cute ones from target... though it's an off time of year right now, the best ones come along in spring. Good luck, I'd love to see how yours turn out!

i actually just printed them on regular printer paper, then trimmed them out and used 3M spray mount adhesive to make them stick. Avery sticker paper i'm sure would work just as well!

The groom & his dad actually made the big chalkboard... Basically they painted two large sheets of plywood and built a wooden stand to hold them up. Having it in two parts made it easier to transport, and then they just bolted them together when they set it up. Hope that helps!

Hi Vi! Unfortunately the pattern itself was too big for a download/printable, so the sketch image in the post with all the measurements is my attempt at sharing how to create your own pattern... Hopefully it's clear enough that you can measure out one of your own, but let me know if you have questions.

Glad you like it! I found the maps at a local school supply store (Utah Idaho Supply)... I used 2, and I think they were around $12 each. If you have time you may be able to find a better deal online somewhere! cheers, c

Thrilled my littles at lunch today with mixed up treats for April Fool's. This simple, silly fun idea was once again adapted from my genius sister-in-law (let's all hope she gets a blog one day). I took some of my... Continue reading

A quick post just to prove i'm still alive! ;) The other day, while assembling the February birthday bulletin board for our elementary school it dawned on me that this design had yet to be posted. Since February's looks so... Continue reading
