Happy Friday everyone! Hannah here for a project and holy cow it's gonna be a long weekend and I think we all deserve it! For many of us it's the last fling before the kids hit the books in full gear and it's a good-bye to summer. If you're staying local it means hosting a picnic or attending a friend's picnic. Whether you're the host or the attendee we have a project for you! All the papers in this post are from our
Animal Kingdom Specialty Paper Pad
You can find this pad at Jo-Ann stores! Happy Labor Day everyone!
For the attendee:
Bring your host a lovely bouquet of flowers to say thanks. If you leave the plastic packaging around the bouquet it screams BOUGHT AT THE GROCERY STORE! [
] Lose the plastic packaging but keep second plastic bag provided by the market to protect the stem ends. [
] Place a damp paper towel in the protective bag and rubber band it closed at the top. This will protect your paper and keep your flowers fresh. [
] Wrap your bouquet with a sheet of 12"x12" specialty paper, tie with a ribbon. [
For the host:
Here's a cute and easy way to dress up your buffet table by displaying finger food fare such as french fries or chips served with your picnic in a colorful way. These handy cones will be fun and easy for the kids and adults to walk around and chat while still holding on to a treat.  Cut your specialty paper to 6"x6" squares. Of course you could do a bigger square as well. To protect the paper from grease or moisture line the cone with wax paper, cut to same 6"x6" size.  Stack the specialty paper and wax paper. Wrap edges to create a cone. Tape secure.  Fill your cones with fries, candy, popcorn, chips, veggies, anything!  Viola!
