Summer is here, and with that comes summer break and bored kids! So here is my first summer project: two super cute bracelets of a mermaid and of a merkitten ! Just color them, cut them out and then slide the top part into the dotted slit at the bottom and you have a cute bracelet ! I recommend printing on card stock if you want it to last a little longer 🙂 I asked my 6 years old son to help me with the kitten and I colored the mermaid, aren’t they cute?

Yes, another Origami Box! I love them…This one has a grey/pink/burgundy motif and you can choose between two different kinds of printable ribbons. It’s such a classic motif, it would be a great idea for favors for a bridal shower or even a little girl baby shower.

I designed this pattern for my wrapping paper, and found it perfect for this little paper bag. It has a grey and red motif that is very gender/occasion neutral and can be used to hold pretty much anything. I closed the bag with the stapler, so I used my monogram to hide the staple.
In the pdf, beside the bag template, you’ll find a complete alphabet, so you will be able to use your own monogram.

This is a work in progress, but I thought that this little black and white patterned house was kind of cute, so I am posting the template if any of you wants to have one too!

As you can see it is just a simple patterned house that you can just cut and assemble with glue or double sided tape. As I said, it’s a work in progress, but it could be a nice box for a house warming party favor or just a cute decoration.

I got the idea for today’s craft from a beautiful blog called Mer Mag and more specifically from this post, in which she created a train for her kids using tea boxes and colored duct tape. I thought it would be fun to recreate her idea in the spirit of Print-cut-paste-craft.com and create some templates for you to just print, cut and paste on your tea boxes. Here is the result!

For the train in the pictures I have just printed the colored templates ( you can download them for free here), cut them and used colored brads for the wheels. If you want I also uploaded the black and white templates (here) so you can let your little one color his/her own train before cutting and pasting. It is really easy and it is a great way to reuse those tea boxes you might have in your pantry, my son loves filling the boxes up with all his little toys and have them go for a ride, but you can use them also to organize a child’s crayons and other art supplies or as little gift boxes for a themed party. I would love to hear from you how you used them!
