{Freebie Friday} Special Delivery Tags


If I were more on top of things, I would’ve shared with you all my recipes & packaging for this year’s holiday box (I may still share them in January). But as time would have it, I’m headed to the Bay Area tomorrow morning & I still need to wrap gifts & pack. If you’re crunched on time like me, I’m sure these tags will come in handy for those last minute gifts you’re trying to find! These Special Delivery tags are what I used on my boxes this year, which were pine themed (pine green, coral, kraft colors).



  • Template
  • Printer
  • Cardstock Paper
  • Scissors
  • Hole Punch
  • Ribbon or twine to attach tag to your gift


  1. Click the template to open.
  2. Print on desired paper.
  3. Cut along the outside of the coral tag.
  4. Punch a hole in the center of the kraft colored circle.
  5. String ribbon or twin through the punched hole and attach to your gift!

In an elementary school summer school class is where I learned to cross stitch. It was the perfect craft to keep our little kid hands busy. I even remember meeting my childhood penpal in that class. We kept in touch all the way through high school and we shared many kid secrets, fears, and exciting moments through hand written letters every week. We originally bonded over this old timey craft and I’m delighted to still see it every where. Revived into a cool new trend even!

Do you like to cross stitch? Do you like the motif on objects other than fabric?

Daydream In Marble

You know I love me some pretty patterns and bright colors, so it shouldn’t be any shock to you how much I love seeing marble pop up all over. The fun part about marble is that is can totally make a bold statement or just add a bit of interest because it can be almost graphic in use or flowy and watercolor-esque. Being a pisces, I love it when patterns can go with the flow of the situation and need. Enjoy the finds below!

Daydream In Burlap

I am thankful to live in a place where the seasons change so that I may enjoy all the beauty that nature has to offer.

(Thankful statement for the Month of Thanks project)

Something about burlap just reminds me of Autumn. Maybe it’s the rustic lifestyle it entails or maybe it’s just because I think of sacks of onions and potatoes on a gorgeously golden hay tinted farm. I love the often worn printing that hints at what purpose it served in a previous life. As I looked further into this rough and sturdy woven cloth, I’ve found that people have begun to use it and re-purpose it in such a different way – in decor, accessories, and even clothes. I hope you enjoy the finds below!

{Freebie Friday} Mulled Apple Cider in Apple Cups

The air has been quite cool lately and I just love snuggling up to a blanket and drinking warm delicious beverages. Hot chocolate, fragrant teas, and spiced mulled apple cider just make me breathe deep breaths to take it all in.

Most recently, I made a large batch of apple cider for our Makers Gathering. A helped me carve apples to be used as cups. Not only do you take in fresh apple smells as you take a sip, but it’s the most perfectly ergonomic cup to be nestled in your hands.

The apples are pretty simple to carve, but they can get time consuming, so allot yourself some time if you are planning to entertain with them. I used a paring knife pointed at an angle with the point towards the core and essentially scored the width I wanted my hole to be. I did it in one swoop so that the top would just fall off in a cone like shape. Then I used a melon baller to scoop the flesh out (so much easier than a spoon). Be careful not to get too crazy because you still need the walls to keep the cider in! It definitely gets easier after the first couple!

I thought this might be a cute hostess or just because gift too, so I’ve included some tags with the printable recipe that you can print out and punch holes in to tie around your homemade mulled cider.

{Freebie Friday} “Hello My Name Is” Name Tags

It’s finally the end of what felt like a long week passed & we’re onto another weekend! Last weekend we headed over to the Vancouver Sausage Fest that a lot of our coworkers volunteered at because it raises money for the local school. I went the first year I moved here and luckily I didn’t have any sausage because I went on a bunch of stomach churning rides. It was fun opting for the sausage this year!

Thoughts of volunteering and school reminded me that one of the things I looked forward to whenever I went to volunteer or start a new year at school was meeting all the new people or maybe in your case the new parents or your kids’ teachers. It brought me back to name tags and I thought it’d be fun to have some in more trendy colors than the traditional blue and red.

Today’s freebie are printable name tags in coral, light coral, and gray to mix and match. This, of course, was inspired by my recent Daydream In Coral post. I hope you enjoy!


  • Template
  • Cardstock or label stock
  • Scissors
  • Sharpie
  • If using cardstock, safety pins or popsicle sticks and adhesive for food labels


  1. Click on template and print on cardstock or label stock.
  2. Cut out printed name tags.
  3. Write your name with Sharpie on the name tag or have your guest right their names.
  4. If using label stock, peel backing and apply.
  5. If using card stock,
    • Use safety pin to apply to your clothes.
    • Adhere to popsicle sticks for food labels.




It’s actually perfect that I made these freebies because the colors happen to coordinate with a little “thing” my friend Emily of Potter + Butler are planning and I’m sure we’ll put them to good use.

{Freebie Friday} Blue & White Plaid Labels

Inspired by yesterday’s Daydream In Blue & White post and in the midst of trying to organize everything in my apartment, I thought labels were perfect for today’s freebie. These would be perfect for labelling your never ending boxes of craft supplies (yes, this is in reference to myself) or as gift tags or even as little place cards for your party guests or food. As shown in the finds yesterday, they can be played up as both classic and country style and hopefully you’ll find a shade that fits your fancy!


  • Cardstock or label stock
  • Template
  • Scissors or paper cutter
  • Adhesive (if using as a label on cardstock), hole punch and string (if using as a tag)


  1. Choose your template and click to open the file.
  2. Print on cardstock or label stock depending on your use.
  3. Use scissors or a paper cutter to cut along the black lines.
  4. Write whatever your heart desires on the blank area of each label.


  • To use as a label, print on label stock. If you don’t have label stock, print on cardstock and use adhesive.

  • To make into a tag, punch a hole on the plaid part of the label and tie it onto something with string, twine, yarn, or ribbon.
  • To use as a place card for your guests or food, cut out two adjacent labels leaving the long black line edge in the middle in tact. Fold along that middle black line to make a tent place card.

{Freebie Friday} Graph Paper Tags

I’ve been out of school for some time now, but something about school supplies and seeing all the fresh and new back to school sales and products makes me excited. Wow I really am a nerd. Besides all that, I was inspired by yesterday’s Daydream In Math post. I thought I’d incorporate the “math stationery” fun into some cute and useful gift tags to be enjoyed by all–school bound or not. By the way, let me know what you think of my photo props. They are one of the products that will be available in my hopefully-soon-to-be online shop!


  • Plain or colored cardstock
  • Template of choice
  • scissors or paper cutter
  • Hole punch
  • String, twine, yarn, or ribbon


  1. Click on your template of choice to open.
  2. Print template on plain or colored cardstock.
  3. If you wish for the tag to be more “realistic,” print the plain graph paper on the other side for a double sided tag.
  4. Cut out the tags along the gray lines.
  5. Punch a hole in the center of the colored circle to make the colored circle look like a reinforcement. (Note: The reinforcement circle is filled in with color so that you can punch a different sized hole or shape for your tags.)
  6. Run a piece of string, twine, yarn, or ribbon through the punched hole and attach to your present.

{Freebie Friday} Ikat Tags

After my Daydream in Ikat post, they updated the fashion posters in the hallway and they had these cute flow-y ikat maxi dresses. It made me wish I could pull one off. I’m too vertically challenged for that trend. I figured I’d better find a way to satisfy my ikat desires, so I began trying to incorporate the resulting pattern into a printable. Since my skills with the Adobe Creative Suite aren’t up to par (believe me I tried!), I had help from the pattern people to create the printable tags I have for you today.

The little orange tags would be great for gift toppers, bookmarks, or scrapbooking.


  • Template
  • Card stock
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • String, twine, or ribbon


  1. Click below to open the file.
  2. Print them out on cardstock.
  3. Cut out the tags.
  4. Punch the hole.
  5. Tie on some twine or ribbon and you’re good to go!
