DIY Halloween Cupcake Toppers and Banner

Here are some more fun Halloween printables.

I made cupcake toppers to match my orange and black favor tags.




These purple and orange cupcake toppers also have matching printable items.


 

This Halloween banner is made of 5 inch squares that you print and cut out yourself.  It will say "Happy Halloween!" and also have squares with the cute spider image. 



Simply punch a hole in the top corners of each square and sring the banner together with yarn, string, etc.

New Halloween Favor Tags and Labels

Hi everyone,

The Halloween bug has bitten me.  Or was it the Halloween spider?




I've been having fun designing some new printable items for Halloween.

So far I have printable party favor tags and printable labels.

Here's what the full sheet of favor tags look like.  Normally I hate spiders, but this one is cute:




I also made favor tags with purple for a more colorful Halloween party:



Both sheets of favor tags can be cut out as squares or you can use a 2 inch circle or scallop punch.

Next are printable labels that you can use for most anything, including dessert table labels or place cards.  They match the Halloween favor tags:

These black and orange labels are classic Halloween colors:



The orange, purple, and black labels are colorful and fun:



If you're like me and can't stand spiders, I also made plain printable labels in black, orange, purple, and green:

Baptism Cupcake Toppers

New to the shop this week are printable Baptism cupcake toppers for boys and girls.



The cupcake toppers say "God Bless (name)," the date of the Baptism or Christening, and "Child of God." 

The toppers can be punched out with a 2 inch circle or scallop punch, or cut out as squares.



They would also work well as favor tags and scrapbook embellishments.

Find the cupcake toppers at the following links:

How to Print Water Bottle Labels

Printing your own water bottle labels is a fun, easy, and economical way of turning any party into a festive occasion.




When you print your water bottle wrappers, there are several options of paper to choose from depending on how you might like your labels to turn out:


You can use regular copy paper or a little heavier paper, such as 24 or 30 lb.


If you are thinking about putting the water bottles in buckets of ice, you could look for water-resistant paper or try photo paper, which might be more resistant to ink running. 


Another idea would be to use clear packing tape over the labels to make them water resistant.





Or you could use clear contact paper to "laminate" the labels without making them as stiff as regular lamination.


(Or just chill the bottles in the fridge &/or provide glasses & ice.)


Then just use double-sided permanent tape to secure the ends.  (Or regular tape or glue.)

If you want the labels to be more permanent on the water bottles, you could use "sticker paper" - 8.5 x 11" full size labels, such as Avery #8165.

Practice on a couple water bottles to see which will work best for you & achieve the desired results.

NEW Printable DIY Party Favor Tags

I just added a few more printable party favor tags to my Etsy shop.

These tags are a great way to add a handmade touch to any party.  Just print, cut, and attach to gift bags, gift boxes, cards, etc.

Most of these tags would work for any occasion, especially baby showers, bridal showers, weddings, and birthdays.

I love the colors on these favor tags!  The purple, aqua, and pink are so pretty.



I made similar printable favor tags in purple and lavender:


All of these favor tags can be cut into squares, which measure 2.2 inches. 

Or you can use a 2 inch scallop punch to give them an extra touch.  A 2 inch circle punch would also work well.  (You can buy both kinds of punches at your local craft store.)



I have pink and black favor tags to match some baby shower items, such as printable candy stickers, cupcake toppers, water bottle wrappers, banners, and labels:



Here are matching blue and black favor tags that would be perfect for a baby boy shower or any fun event:



Most of my printable tags include personalization.  Just leave me the name you'd like on the tags in the "Note to Seller" during checkout on Etsy.


And finally, I made these beautiful thank you favor tags featuring star designs.  Click on the picture to see the third tag that comes with this set:




These thank you tags match the birthday star cupcake toppers:



Have a great day!
