I’m Kristin back again from Yellow Bliss Road with some patriotic printables for the 4th of July!

Free Printable America Banner

I love the 4th of July. Barbecues, friends, fireworks, what’s not to love?? It’s hard to believe that it will be here in just a little over a month, and we will be smack in the middle of summer already! It’s that time of year when people start thinking about adding a little patriotic color to their homes so I’ve designed a fun free printable patriotic banner for you.

There are two versions of the banner, one with red lettering and one with blue. Or you can mix it up and do a red and blue combo. There are also some pattered flags that you can add to either side of the banner.

Printable Red and Blue America Banner

The banner would be a fun way to add some color to your 4th of July barbecue, or just to add some Americana to your mantel.

To put the banner together, you’ll want to start by printing the banner on cardstock. If you want the most vibrant colors, I’d recommend having it printed at a copy shop like Office Depot. It’s usually around fifty cents a page. Cut the flags out that you want to use and attach them together with twine by punching holes in the corners and stringing the twine through. You could also ties the corners together with some pretty ribbon.

You can also find some coordinating printables at Yellow Bliss Road today. I’ve got Free Printable 4th of July Trivia Cards and Printable Envelopes that double as utensil holders!

Memorial Day Family Activity & Free Printable! http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/05/memorial-day-family-activity-free-printable.html http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/05/memorial-day-family-activity-free-printable.html#comments Tue, 19 May 2015 11:02:12 +0000 http://tatertotsandjello.com/?p=72541 1memorial.day.tatertotsandjello-5]]> Memorial Day is the perfect day for families to remember loved ones and honor those deceased while serving in our armed services … but sometimes it’s hard to think of ways to remember them, and sometimes you’re not close enough to bring flowers. Here’s an idea, updated thanks to my friends at Canon, that might work to remember both loved ones and those who died in military service!

1memorial.day.tatertotsandjello-5

 

One of our family traditions has been to write notes to my dad on his birthday … and tie them to balloons. It’s a great idea for Memorial Day, too — and you can use the free printables to remember your loved ones!

grandpa s birthday 001

(Look – we’ve been doing it for many years!)

Here’s what to do:

memorial.day.tatertotsandjello-2

Get some helium balloons, and print the free printables (below). You may also want to add small pictures to your notes. I’ve made two types of printables, both ones where you can write a name and ones where you can attach a picture. I loved how the printables came out using my new Canon Pixma iP8720 printer!

memorial.day.tatertotsandjello-7

 

And here are the printables!

Note that the first page has a big “blank” to write your loved one’s name, and a smaller “blank” after the heart to write your name, your kids’ names, or whatever you like! The second page is made to tape a picture onto, but do whatever works for you!

Just right-click this link or one of the images below and choose “save link as” to download the printable PDF. Print as many pages as you need! As always, these are for personal use only.

We think it’s a fun way to remember Grandpa!

Graduation Money Card Gift Idea http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/05/graduation-money-card-gift-idea.html http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/05/graduation-money-card-gift-idea.html#comments Tue, 19 May 2015 11:00:00 +0000 http://tatertotsandjello.com/?p=72396 Graduation-Money-Card.-LOVE-e1431842142212]]> Hi everyone, Kiki from Kiki and Company back and I am so excited to be with you today to share a fun way to give some money (or a gift card) to your favorite graduate this month! I don’t know many college students who don’t LOVE pizza, so I thought I’d make a little punny card shaped as a pizza box:

Graduation Money Card

It’s perfectly small, perfectly punny AND it has a place for you to put as much “dough” as you’d like in it. You could even fill it with gift cards as well.

Graduation Money Card. Super Cute!

And there is even a little space for you to put some words of encouragement in as well…

Graduation Money Card. Pizza + Grads = Perfect!

So let’s get making…

Graduation Money Card. Love this!

Supplies for Pizza Box Card

  • Free printables at the end of this post
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Some sort of paper scoring tool

directions

  1. Download, print and cut out printables. I printed mine on a gloss cover (heavy) cardstock which gave it some good weight.
  2. Score on each of the white lines, cut on the red (wait on cutting out the red circle yet).
  3. I always like to fold on my lines first, so do that over the whole card.
  4. Start gluing on the little tabs part first. Fold them in, glue to the sides and then fold over the tops and glue the side flaps down. pizza box 3
  5. Fold over the front panel and cut out the circle. This is easier to do right now. Place glue on the flap and secure it to make your box.
  6. Glue in the two squares. I placed the “You can’t live without pizza…”on the lid and the “Congrats” on the bottom.
  7. Fill it with some “dough” and give it to your favorite graduate!
  8. You can tie it up with some cute string or use some washi tape to help it stay closed.
  9. You are done!

 

 

Graduation Money Card.  So great!

These are so fun to make and so simple (especially when you have more than one graduate to give a gift too!)

Rhubarb Raspberry Crisp http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/05/rhubarb-raspberry-crisp.html http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/05/rhubarb-raspberry-crisp.html#respond Thu, 14 May 2015 11:00:00 +0000 http://tatertotsandjello.com/?p=72395 DSC_1803]]> Hey friends! I am Kelsey from Poofy Cheeks back sharing another recipe. Today I am sharing a recipe for Rhubarb Raspberry Crisp. A lot of my recipes come from my childhood and this one is no exception. Growing up we had a huge garden on a piece of property my parents owned in the country. We would go out each Spring and plant the garden as a family. We grew rhubarb, raspberries, strawberries, zucchini, peppers, tomatoes and nearly everything in between. When the rhubarb was in season my mom would always make rhubarb crisp and freeze what she didn’t use to make it later in the year. When I came across fresh rhubarb at the grocery store last week I knew I needed to make it. The first bite evoked so many memories from the dish my mom used to bake it in to the way my dad used to use sticks and string to make sure every row in our garden was perfectly straight.

Rhubarb Raspberry Crisp Recipe-

Ingredients-
3 1/2 cups sliced rhubarb
1 1/2 cups raspberries
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter
Directions-

  • Place rhubarb and raspberries in the bottom of a 2-quart baking dish. Stir in granulated sugar and vanilla.
  • In a medium bowl combine oats, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles crumbs. Sprinkle the mixture over the rhubarb and raspberries.
  • Bake the crisp in a 375 degree oven for 35-40 minutes or until topping is golden.

If you aren’t a big rhubarb fan you can substitute the rhubarb and raspberries with peaches, blueberries, cherries or even apples. For a sweeter fruit cut the granulated sugar down to 1/2 a cup.

The only thing that could possibly make this any more delicious is a heaping spoonful of vanilla ice-cream.

While the #1905Cottage yard is still a bit of a mess after the remodel, that’s not stopping me from getting a head start on summer BBQs!

Thanks to my friends at Staples Copy & Print, who sponsored this post, I’ve created some fun, free printables to share with you — and I’ll show you how you can print them at Staples (and they’re on sale too) if you’d like to make some cool big banners, postcards and pennants.

main.bbq.printables.staples.tatertotsandjello-1

I loved the large size banners for my BBQ signs! They’re 2 1/2 feet by 6 feet. (So, yes, ginormous. When I ordered mine, they were even on sale for $20 – check your local store for specials!)

bbq.printables.staples.tatertotsandjello-11

Here’s what I did, and you can download the free printables below!

 

bbq.printables.staples.tatertotsandjello-3

Planning for my BBQ, I knew I wanted signs for the BBQ itself – and for the food and drink stations. I also wanted little signs by the food and drink. Plus, what’s a party without pennants?

Let’s start by looking at the banners.

bbq.printables.staples.tatertotsandjello-12

BBQ Banners

I created two styles – vertical and horizontal, both sized for the large, 2 1/2 by 6-foot banners.

bbq.printables.staples.tatertotsandjello-2

 

I thought the vertical style would work great on the garage door, front door, front of the house, or anywhere else like that to show guests they’re in the right place.

bbq.printables.staples.tatertotsandjello-9

The horizontal ones will work great in the backyard or kitchen!

Here are the printables – they’re fairly large PDFs, and you can upload them directly on Staples Copy & Print (as always, for personal use only).

Right-click this link or the image below and choose “save link as”to download the PDF for the horizontal BBQ banner, and

Right-click this link or the image below and choose “save link as” to download the PDF for the vertical BBQ banner.

vertical.bbq.banner.tatertotsandjello

 

Food & Drink Banners

I wanted to create small banners over the food and drink stations. But since the large banners were on sale for $20 – $10 cheaper than the small ones, I had them printed as the large banners.

bbq.printables.staples.tatertotsandjello-11

I’ve included both sizes for you just in case you’d like the smaller banners. They’re different files because the proportions are different between the two sizes.

Cards

bbq.printables.staples.tatertotsandjello-4

I wanted to make cards that matched the theme to label the food, salads, drinks and so on. Staples has cool postcards you can print with bright, glossy color. You only need to print on one side — which is cheaper, anyway!

bbq.printables.staples.tatertotsandjello-7

Just print as many as you want, fold them in half, and write the food item in the lighter rectangle. You can print these at home, too, from the PDF.

bbq.printables.staples.tatertotsandjello-8

Right-click this link or the image below and choose “save link as” to download the PDF for the cards.

bbq.card.tatertotsandjello

 

 

Pennants

What’s a party without pennants? Often it’s cheaper — and looks better — to print your color prints at a good commercial printer like Staples than at home (and saves on ink). I printed the PDF at Staples – and they look great!

bbq.printables.staples.tatertotsandjello-10

I made the letters spell out CELEBRATE and BBQ along with a blank, an exclamation point, and a few grilling implements. Mix and match however you like!

Pom Pom Wall Hanging http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/05/pom-pom-wall-hanging.html http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/05/pom-pom-wall-hanging.html#comments Tue, 12 May 2015 11:00:00 +0000 http://tatertotsandjello.com/?p=72394 DIY-pom-pom-wall-hanging]]> Hi everyone, it’s Holly from My Sister’s Suitcase and I have an easy DIY to share today, using one of my favorite items… yarn pom poms! Using just a few supplies, I created this heart-shaped pom pom wall hanging for our family room:
DIY pom pom wall hanging

op view of pom pom heart

 

I’ve had a slight obsession with yarn crafts this past year, including my yarn tassel bed skirt, pom pom necklace, and Spring pom pom wreath. I am currently working on redesigning our family room and needed a colorful, kid-friendly piece of art for this wall by their reading nook. I love using yarn to infuse color into a space because there are so many different colors to choose from! Here’s what you’ll need to make your own pom pom wall hanging:

  • yarn
  • pom pom makers
  • poster board
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun & sticks
  • 3M Command picture hanging strips

Making a pom pom wall hanging

Step 1: Make all your pom poms. This is the most time-consuming part of the project but it’s actually pretty relaxing for me. I made all of my pom poms while getting caught up on shows on Netflix. For this project, I used the two largest sizes of pom pom makers at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores.

Step 2: Create your design. Lay the pom poms out on a white poster board until you are happy with the shape or design. I wanted to make a heart, so first I folded my poster board in half and slid it under the heart formation of pom poms. With the fold in the middle of the heart, I traced the outer edge of the shape on the poster board.

Step 3: Cut the poster board in your desired design. Once the heart shape was cut out, I slid it carefully back underneath the pom poms and rearranged them a little until I had them all in place.

Step 4: Attach pom poms to poster board with hot glue. I worked from the outside edges, gluing one pom pom at a time to secure it to the poster board.

Making a pom pom wall hanging

When all the pom poms are in place, it’s time to hang it on the wall! I used three of the Command brand small picture hanging strips, and since it’s pretty light, that’s all I needed to secure my wall hanging. I love how it turned out!

It has a retro, whimsical feel that is perfect for our family space!

Today I’m sharing a fun idea for a con”grad”ulations graduation party – with free poster printable!

Last year, for my oldest daughter’s graduation, we printed a bunch of our favorite pictures of her (including ones from her graduation announcement photo shoot by my awesomely talented sister Wendy) and a custom con “grad” ulations poster.

Because we loved the way they turned out, I’m sharing a 2015 version of the poster with you today – and I’ll show you where to print yours at Staples as well. Here’s what I did:

Just download the printable (below) – and if you want to print photos, too, get those ready in as high a resolution JPG as possible. (Keep in mind the photos won’t be perfectly reproduced since these are black and white prints designed only for large blueprints, but

Then to go Staples Copy & Print and look for “engineering prints.” You can choose three sizes — the biggest is 3 feet by 4 feet, but I usually pick the 2 by 3 feet size. (Check out your local pricing.)

Upload your files and pick them up at your local store (they’ll ship if there isn’t a Staples close to you).

And here is the printable! Just right-click this link and choose “save link as” to download the PDF. As always, it’s for personal use only.

 

Con”grad”ulations to your graduate!
