I absolutely love paper! My daughter introduced me to the joys of paper art when we lived in Germany. It really is such a versatile medium. Its uses are only limited to the ceaseless imagination of humanity….or the ceaseless imagination of my insanity! Welcome to my world of paper. Every month you will find a new set of printable items to print, cut, assemble and play with at home, or at work…I won’t tell. The best part…..it’s FREE! These are my gifts to the kid in all of us. Have a great time. Use the colored printables I’ve created below or print and color your own from the black and white version.
Just promise me two things:
- That you WILL have fun, and…
- You will take videos or pictures of you playing with our printables and SEND them to me. Play time is ALWAYS more fun when I get to share it with someone. I can’t wait to see what you do!
All printables will require the following items to print and assemble:
- printer (of course)
- card stock paper (I prefer anything heavier than 80lbs…100 – 110 lbs is best. Feel free to play around with matte, glossy, vellum or specialty papers, yourself.)
- glue or clear tape
- high pitch (or low pitch, if you prefer) funny character voice to talk out loud with, while you play. This is an especially
funny…um…err…fun thing to do if you’re by yourself. Please send me videos of you doing this! Those are my FAVORITE! I love to post others having fun with my creations.

You can see how cute this project is. . .Have fun and fill the day with love and chocolate!
CUP CAKE COZIES
Why do coffee cups get all the fun of having their own cozy? Ok, I’ll give you – they are hot…and need one….but that’s not a good enough reason to deprive other foods of the same joy of a fashionable accessory.
