Valentine heart  wineglass lampshade and cupcake toppers

Here’s a bit of fun for those who want to do something different to decorate for Valentine’s Day — a free wineglass lampshade! It’s a great way to spruce up for the holiday, even if you’re on a budget. Here are the steps to make it:

  1. Download the template artwork (see the link below)
  2. Print the template on card stock or paper
  3. Cut around the lampshade shape
  4. Glue or tape the back so ti forms a circle
  5. Place on the top of a wineglass
  6. Use some clear Museum Gel or something similar at the back of the lampshade to hold it to the glass (optional)

I used a clear wineglass, but for extra fun, you can use one with some color.

To make sure I didn’t burn the house down by getting a flame in touch with the paper shade, I used an extremely inexpensive LED tea light (three for $1 at the dollar store) instead of a candle. I strongly suggest you do the same. It’s not worth the risk to use a candle. And you get 60 hours out of one LED tea light, so you can use it plenty of times before it burns out.

Princess Cupcake Picks

Click on the link to the free printable princess party cupcake pick template below to enlarge and download it.

Quinceanera princessesThese three little princesses can serve quite a few purposes. You can use them all together on cupcakes for a little girl’s party. Or you can pair the one that looks like Cinderella with the Cinderella invitation from one of my other sites. Or you can choose the one that most looks like the birthday girl and use it for a Quinceanera celebration.

Each princess has “Pretty as a princess” written in flowing script on her skirt. Cinderella has long flowing blonde hair and is dressed all in pink. The beautiful African American princess has her hair up in a sophisticated bun is in almond, green and purple with flowers at her waist and the brunette princess is also in pink, with a blue flower on her bodice. All are wearing princess crowns.

Three designs of princess cupcake toppersTo make these, you’ll need sharp scissors to cut around the faint gray lines. (I use tiny manicure scissors with curved blades but you can use whatever works best for you.) This will leave a white border around each princess. If you prefer not to have the border, you can cut around the images themselves. I warn you, though, there will be a lot of tiny edges and curves to cut. That’s why I used the white borders: to keep you from cursing my name as you cut around little pieces of hair!

Once they’re cut, you can make toppers out of them by using a small vertical line of glue from the bottom to about halfway up the back. Then, just lay a toothpick or party pick (slightly larger than a toothpick) into the glue, make sure it’s straight up and down, and then let it dry. You can also decorate them with glitter glue, rhinestones and faux pearls. If you use glitter or glitter glue, though, make sure to use a coat of clear glue (I recommend Emer’s school glue) over the glitter, so it won’t fall onto the cupcakes.

This 3rd birthday party invite is in a generic but really cute (I think, anyway!) pastel purple and pale green color scheme. So you can use it for either a boy’s or a girl’s birthday party. It has a purple polka dot background with a really large “3,” just in case anyone is in doubt how old the birthday child will be. It also has a cheerful snail and bumble bee and the message, “Please Come to My 3rd Birthday Party.”

This 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ template is designed to fit in the standard A2 envelope size. Of course, you can make your invitations larger or smaller if you want to deliver them by hand or by e-mail. To prep them for e-mail, you can pop the image into a photo editor like Photoshop Elements, or (the last two are free online applications). Once in there, add text for all the pertinent details in a layer over the image. You can then save the image and text combination to create a new .jpg or PNG file. Once you have that, you can insert it into your e-mail.
