rustic mother's day celebration

Thinking ahead to our Mother's Day celebration next month, I put together this rustic party suite with kraft cardstock, treat bags and sunflower doilies featuring on of the newest products from The Twinery,  Solid Natural twine.

By creating my invitation and party favor bags with kraft paper I was able to stamp them and highlight the word sunshine with colored pencils, which happen to be the same pencils Zach used as a wee kiddo. The Solid Natural twine enhances the rustic feel I was going for as we celebrate two of our most favorite Mom's!

Some years, we go all out and get fancy schmancy with our celebration and this is going to be one of those years...invitations AND treat bags. I made a quick notecard, added a doily and wrapped some Solid Natural twine around the right side. For the treat bag, I folded the doily over the bag, punched a flower shape and used some twine to hold the bag closed. 


And while I was at it, I embellished dollar store vases, which will be sent home with Oma and Nana containing a bouquet of fresh flowers.  Don't forget that you can create a quick and easy banners by folding sunflower paper doilies over onto your favorite twine and adhering with a glue stick.

This project was originally featured at The Twinery using Solid Natural twine.

    1. I really love to use colored pencils, more so than crayons or markers. Call me old-fashioned.
