I’m pleased to offer two awareness ribbon templates which will create awareness ribbon embellishments for cards or other items. There are two versions, one that will sit flat on your page and the other folds over to make a 3d style ribbon as shown in the photo above.

This is a really fun project for kids. These bangles are made from popsicle sticks (admittedly, I call them lollipop sticks, so perhaps it depends where you are in the world). The popsicle or lollipop sticks are bent into a bangle shape and then decorated with rubber stamps. Making them into bangle shapes is fiddly, and I think that this is part of the project for adults to do in advance, however once bent and dried, the youngsters love decorating them. We used rubber stamps, however you could also cover them with washi tape, draw patterns with markers etc. The only thing to watch is that very wet medium such as some paints, may seep along the grain of the wood. You can read more about making these bangles here – DIY Popsicle Stick Bangles.
I needed some graphics for prepositions of place work that I am doing now with some youngsters, and I could not find anything that was appropriate. I wanted some graphics which were fun, not too young but where each character was differentiated. I decided to create my own and made this set featuring an alien – who is in a different color in each graphic. This was important for me as I wanted the youngsters to be able to describe the different aliens (the orange alien is behind the spaceship), and it also means I can ask them questions (where is the orange alien?). I like this set and I’m pleased with how it came out – I’ve put it in my TPT store.
Here’s an invitation that makes me smile! This invitation is for an end of school party. The wording on the invitation will be customized for the customer. I love the faces on this card – I am sure that I looked the same when I was facing the end of school and the long summer holidays! The invitation is here – Schools Out Invitation.
