We are featuring a handful of our favorite DIY projects from our From Inspiration to Reality Shoot that we did with our Connecticut Vendors a few weeks back...and this one just might be my favorite.
I knew that I wanted to do some homemade pies, inspired by these little beauties that I spotted over on The Cookie Shop, but with a more vintage inspired twist. I just couldn't figure out the packaging. So, with about 48 hours before the shoot, I frantically emailed the fabulous Karen Bartolomei of Grapevine Invitations to help us design some tags that would properly show off these adorable favors. When I tell you that Karen whipped these perfect little tags together in literally an hour, I am being completely serious.
It's not terribly surprising considering Karen has written a book called Paperie for Inspired Living devoted completely to paper treats, but still...does it get ANY cuter?
And guess what...she's sharing them with you today! Here's the DIY project for the adorable Pie Tags just for SMP readers!
80 lb white card stock from Paper Source
3 inch circle hole punch found at Michael's Craft Store
1. After choosing your colorway from the attached template, print the circles on 8.5" x 11" cardstock (please note, the circles are slightly bigger than the hole punch)
2. Turn the page over and print the back checkered pattern. (optional, of course)
3. Using a 3" circle hole punch I purchased at Michael's craft store I hole punched each tag in a perfect circle shape
Coming up next, we'll show you how to make the pies and assemble them in such a pretty way for your guests to enjoy! Thank you so much to Karen for being so generous with her time and talents!! We are going to be doing a fun giveaway with Karen in the coming days so definitely stay tuned.
