Welcome to The Cherry On Top!
I'm taking a slight side step from my digital obsession to bring a special blog featuring printables. I've only just begun using them. Amanda from A-Manda Creation introduced me to them. I was a bit pessimistic about it in the beginning, but when I saw how easy, fast and cheap it was, I was hooked! I shook my head with incredulity at the ease of it all. If you know me, you know, the easier the better. Fast? Even better still.
I'm here to show ya exactly what they are, what you can do with them, alternative ideas and of course, hook you up with some links so you can try it out, too.
Below you will see a 4th of July set from A-Manda Creation. These are the bubble wrappers. Just print, cut and wrap them around your bubbles. It literally takes only a few minutes. Great for picnics, weddings, birthday parties...You name it and there is a printable for it!
How about a little token to put in your kid's lunch box to let them know you are thinking of them? I used tiny, glue dots on four corners and put some stickers in the little pocket. If you laminate them you could use them over and over and it will help with smudging.
I used a french fry printable on some old scraps and made a gift basket full of cookies for the teachers at my son's school. The only cost here was for the ink! Printing on scrap paper is an excellent money saver!
There are more teacher and gift printables than you can shake a stick at! You've got these little lovelies for under Kisses.
Or you could use your circle punch, cut out two and glue dot a paper clip in-between.
Check out this spread down here! Banners, subway art, muffin wrappers, picks, bottle wrappers, candy wrappers...It's ALL here! My guest's jaws dropped when they saw this spread!
Planning a bowling party? Check out all of the things you can do with printables.
Want a little something more for your toothless wonder? How cool is this?!
I loved this set for the 4th of July! I took the candy wrappers, both big and small and wrapped them around the wine bottle. Concealing the cheap brand. Ha!
The printables above are so bright and fun. I actually use them over and over to serve the boys pretzels and popcorn. The lolly wrappers are really easy and they are great for bringing everything together. Printables are awesome for us "Matchy Matchy" people! Hehehe...
Check out Amanda's newest printable release. You can even have them customised!
I was lucky enough to start helping Dora with Dora's Digitals, make her printables. I have a few here for you to see what they look like close up. You download, print, cut and adhere. That is it! Be ready to be amazed at just how easy and fast it is! Follow the perforated lines to fold and look for the places where to glue. They are also marked.
Below, is a favour box. Good for smaller sentiments.
The ever useful, money holder. Of course you could use it for other small, flatter goodies.
The pillow box is used pretty much the same was as the money holder.
Then my favourite, the gift bag! I love these! Find the right printable for your occasion, download, print, cut and adhere. You're set and you have a totally custom look. Add some ribbons, bling, flowers, whatever you want to pimp it up even more.
Keep an out in the MyMemories.com shop for new trends and great deals on printables. A-Manda Creation, like other designers have an Etsy shop where you can get their goodies, too. You'll be pleasantly surprised at just how inexpensive printables are.
Printables are downloads so that means you can print them over and over and keep them for future use as well!
I hope you give printables a try. It will change the way you do parties. That's for sure! I have other blogs with tutorials on how to assemble them and other ways to use them to make gifts.
I've also got a board just for printables. Click on here and it will take ya to Pinterest. I have a board of jut my designs at MyMemories as well. That's here.
If you have any questions, feel free to leave them here and I'll help ya out!
