Picturesque Printables

I found some gorgeous (FREE) printables on Pinterest last week and used them to make my mom’s Mother’s Day extra special.
Even though Mother’s Day is over, these three printables are useful for any gifting or crafting occasion!
Here they are:

1. Paper Gem Templates from Minieco

I discovered this lovely geometric gem template on Minieco.co.uk, one of my new favorite craft websites. The gem pictured above is Gem B on the Minieco website.
I used regular letter sized printer paper, but card stock would probably be better if you want them to last.

2. Martha Stewart Floral Wrapping Paper

You may have noticed the fetching design of the wrapping of the above gem. It’s yet another wonder brought to us by Martha.
Martha offers some gorgeous printable Gift Wrap, which you can find here (for FREE!!!).
Geraniums is featured above and Berries is featured below. Other patterns include Lemons, Oranges, Leaves, and Mixed Flowers.

3. Matryoshka Dolls from Today’s Creative Life

Who doesn’t love Russian Nesting Dolls? They are always on point.
I used mine as decorative gift tags, but there are many more innovate ideas on Today’s Creative Life.
There are nine blank on one page and nine with Mother’s Day messages on another page.

I hope you love these printables as much as I do!


Good luck in all your DIY endeavours!

The Enchanted Paper


Fifteen more minutes until the bell,

What shall we do after show and tell?


In a folder, lies an old worksheet,

Maybe we can fold and pleat


To make the paper into something more:

An agile airplane that will soar.


Like the birds that fly above

Like an eagle or a dove


To take us off the ground in flight

A nine year old becomes a Brother, Wright.


-Z.Y. Doyle



This poem was inspired by:

Swallow Paper Airplane


Favorite plane that really looks like a bird.

Instructions HERE.


Nakamura Lock

Nakamura Lock

Made this after reading about it in Emperor Pickletine Rides the Bus by Tom Angleberger.

Instructions HERE.

Take special note of Step 3. When folding wings, the edge of wing must be even with bottom of the plane.


A Word on Paper Plane Technique

Successful flight depends on a gentle release!

Throw it like you are launching a baby bird into flight. Throw firmly, but tenderly.


What is your favorite type of paper airplane? Do you have any fun paper airplane stories? Please post any comments or questions below.
