December Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable

Hello Planner Friends,

It’s time for my free, monthly printable release!

pbtt-december-functional-printable-sheet

Can you believe it’s December already?!  I sure can’t!

I love the bright green color of December in the Erin Condren LifePlanner.  It’s not the typical Christmas green, but I still love it!  It’s so cheerful! 🙂

To tie in the bright green with Christmas, I went with a holly leaves and berries theme!  I LOVE how it turned out!

I think I’m going to use this kit in my kikki.K personal planner this week!

Before I give you the printable file, there are a few things I’d like to say.  I spent a lot of time designing and creating this printable, so please be kind when you use it.

  • Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes printables are for personal use only
  • You may not re-sell, redistribute, or claim this work as your own
  • If you post this on the internet, please give the credit to Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes and link it back to my blog (pinkbowstwinkletoes.com)

Enough of the heavy stuff! Now it’s time for the stickers!

You can download the sticker file here, PBTT December Functional Sticker Sheet.

DIY Brush Calligraphy Gift Tags

Hi everyone!

I have a super quick and easy Christmas (or any holiday) craft for you!

I was wrapping some Christmas presents in my college apartment a few days ago when I realized that I didn’t have any gift tags! Uh oh!  I quickly realized that I could easily make some tags out of sticker paper and brush pens!

Supplies:

  • Avery sticker paper
  • Colored pens or markers
  • Scissors

I’ll be using Tombow Dual Brush Pens but Crayola markers will work as well!

Green: 277

Red: 847

There are only three steps to this little craft.

  1. Write/Draw your desired names
  2. Cut out the names
  3. Stick them on your packages

Here’s a video of me demonstrating my brush lettering technique.

To achieve lettering like mine, all you have to do is apply pressure on the down stroke and release the pressure on the up stroke.  Sounds easy doesn’t it?  The steps are easy, but it takes a little bit of practice!  Definitely test out your writing on some printer paper before your start writing on the sticker paper!

For more tips, check out Pieces Calligraphy!  I follow her on Instagram, and she is fantastic!

Here’s the name I wrote in the video above.

The sticker paper absorbs the ink a little differently than sketchbook paper, so some of the edges are a little choppy.  I like to go back and smooth out a few of the edges.

Now we cut!

I like to cut in a wavy pattern and conform to the edges of the name.

All of the tags I’ve made so far have been for girls, so I’ve dotted every “i” and “j” with a heart.  The hearts add even more cuteness to the tags!

Time to peel and stick!

I’ve been placing my tags on the backs of my packages, but they’d also look quite nice on the front!

Here are the fronts of a few of my very pretty packages!

A few more pretty tags!

I absolutely love how these gift tags turned out!

They were so quick to make and look fantastic!

Happy Crafting and Merry Christmas!

Julep Maven Review & Coupon – December 2014

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly, Julep Maven review!

DSCN3619If you’d also like to receive these pretty, purple boxes every month, click here!

DSCN3623Box Contents:

  • Ilga – Classic with a Twist – Rich Bordeaux Crème
  • Sienna – Classic with a Twist – Sophisticated, Shimmery Gold
  • Orbital Eyeshadow – Airglow – Champagne Pearlescent with Rose Gold
  • Two Peppermints
  • Coupon

DSCN3641December features “The Countdown Collection.”

DSCN3626I love both of my polishes this month!  Both are perfect for the Christmas season!

Sienna – Classic with a Twist – Sophisticated, Shimmery Gold

I haven’t tried out this gold polish yet, but I’m hoping to soon!  It’s perfect for an accent nail or polka dots!

I read online that this color was reintroduced for the December box.  I don’t like the fact that they recycled Sienna, but I won’t be too upset until I get a duplicate.

Ilga – Classic with a Twist – Rich Bordeaux Crème

My fingernails and toenails are both painted with Ilga right now!  It’s such a classic, dark red.  I absolutely love it!

DSCN3635Orbital Eyeshadow – Airglow – Champagne Pearlescent with Rose Gold

This eyeshadow is beautiful! There were quite a few different colors offered, and I was very pleased to see that the one chosen for me is one of my favorite shades!

It’s more glittery than the shimmer shadows that I usually wear, but I still love it!

DSCN3642As usual, Julep included a coupon in the box.  This one is good for two uses and expires January 31, 2015!

What did you get in your December box? Are you in love with your polishes too?!
