Give Your New Year's Eve Party a Personal Touch

We were super inspired by the creative folks over at Lily & Val and decided to make all these cute New Year's Eve crafts using free printables. Here's how we did it:

1. Print out the free template
2. Cut out the images
3. Use a glue stick to apply to the bottom of the kisses candy
4. Repeat for the bottles and confetti (we added the names to personalize the party)


Happy New Year!

Make Your Own Cupcake Wrappers

The cupcake trend doesn't seem to be losing any steam, at least not as far as we're concerned! One way to give your next batch a special twist is to make custom cupcake wrappers. Your creativity can be as varied as your cupcake flavors. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Transform a paper doily. For a dainty twist, simply take a paper doily and cut it in half. Bring the ends together to create the perfect cupcake shape. Attach a small piece of tape to hold it together. Click HERE for a variety of doily sizes in our products section.

Designer paper sheets. You'll find hundreds of patterns and themes of specialty papers to choose from HERE. Simply cut the paper into the cupcake wrapper shape and tape it together. Don't stop there! Add some embellishments like sweet flower appliques or beads.

Free Printables. The blog Food Art Party has a bunch of cupcake wrappers you can download (be sure to click on the image first to get the full size). Go HERE for the downloadables.

Personalize with Craft Attitude film. Print your own personal messages or names on each cupcake wrapper by using Craft Attitude film. You can add the Craft Attitude message onto any of the above ideas. Go HERE to find Scrapbooking Attitude, which is perfect for this project.  

Now that you have a beautiful batch of cupcakes, don't forget a stand to showcase them. We've pictured just three options below, but you can find cupcake stands for any occasion by clicking HERE.

Looking for Free Printables? Try These 7 Sites First

Here at Craft Attitude, we get asked regularly about where to find great images to use in craft projects. Whether you’re decorating mason jars, frames, phone covers, cups, shoes or anything else, here are some great websites to start with that include everything from vintage signs to awe-inspiring photography.

You’ll want to ensure that the images are copyright-free or are labeled “public domain.” Anything that is copyrighted may need permission and/or attribution to use and often come with a fee to use, often nominal. So be sure to check out any licensing restrictions before printing, especially if you’re using it for commercial purposes.

The Graphics Fairy. Find all sorts of cute labels, gift tags, postcards, signs and other templates that have a vintage twist to them. Be sure to find the link to the “full size printable PDF” or “download” options to get the most high-resolution version of the image.

IM Free. Search through the 20 different collections that include exceptional photography of food, drinks, technology, sports, art and people in lots of different environments. Most of the images require attribution if used for commercial use.

Copyright Free Images. This site has some fairly standard public domain stock art images. Look under “holidays,” “nature landscapes” and “wallpapers” for some of the best images.

Public Domain Archive. This couple from Athens, GA, developed this public domain photo site to inspire other creative folks. Stunning new photography is loaded every week.

The Elli Blog. Find lots of inspiration on this page, just be sure to note whether the image has a “for personal use only” notation below the image. Cute wedding printables are a highlight.

I Heart Naptime. This blog has plenty of holiday and season-related printables and ideas for recipes and crafts – well worth the time to click around and find lots of cute inspiration.

New Old Stock. If you’re not into cutesy at the moment, check out this site for some copyright-free public archive photos. The historical images are decidedly masculine, which is a nice variation from hearts, polka dots and flowers.

We’ll keep an eye out for even more sites with free printables, so check back often.
