I’m very excited to bring you these free agenda/planner stickers! I teamed up with Megan McNulty, and we collaborated on these super adorable illustrations!
All you need to do to turn this printable into stickers is to print them on full-sheet sticker paper, then cut them out! Orrrr if you wanna just print them on regular copier paper, you can cut them out and use a glue sticker to adhere them to your planner! (That’s what I did for this photo shoot, but I think I’ll turn them into stickers to use in my own planner!) ORR you can use them for scrapbooking! That works too!
All you have to do to get these super adorable stickers is just sign up for my newsletter! It’s that simple!
Okay, so maybe Valentine’s Day isn’t your thing. And maybe hating Valentine’s Day is your cup of tea! Because I mean, who needs an actual Valentine to celebrate Valentine’s Day, anyway?! Celebrate with your gal pals! Celebrate Galentine’s Day!
“What’s Galentine’s Day? Oh it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.” – Leslie Knope
Speaking of Leslie Knope, let me introduce to you this Valentine’s Galentine’s Day season’s free printable! (Here’s something I made last year for Dawn Nicole Designs.)

You love your Valentine. That’s why you want to get them literally almost anything- and everything-Valentine’s-Day-themed. Roses, candy, flowers, and of course the frilly, traditional Valentines. But that would be too much, right? WRONG!
This Valentine’s Day season, and especially with this DIY, MORE IS MORE! And it. Is. Awesome.
Start by cutting a large heart out of the poster board.
Cut off the edges of the paper doilies, and tape them on the edge of the heart. Once you’ve gone all the way around the edge of the heart, flip the heart over.
Start decorating the front first by using the large alphabet stickers to write your love note.
Ideas: LUV U, LUV BUG, U R CUTE, BE MINE
Decorate the front of the heart with anything your heart (your real one, ha!) desires! The more the better. Remember: more is more!
To glue on faux flowers, cut off the fake bloom, estimate where you want to put it, then use a pen to poke a small hole in the poster board. Add hot glue to the back of the fake flower, stick the little bit of stem in the hole you poked, and hold the flower in place until the glue cools.
Don’t forget to print off your free printable manila tag to write a longer note to your Valentine! Cut it out, punch a hole in it, and attach some bakers twine to the hole. Use a dab of hot glue to attach the tag to the very center of your ultimate Valentine.
I teamed up with Alicia from Slightly Stationery (Instagram here) provide you with this super cute, Thanksgiving free printable! I introduce to you all, the Thanksgiving pie wheel!
To make sure we’ve provided you with the most likely options of pies that you’ll actually have Thanksgiving Day, I researched the most popular ones, and picked 7 of them! This way you’ll have your pick of pies to customize your own Thanksgiving pie wheel!
Cut out the fork, and the pie slices that match the kind of pies you’ll be serving in real life. NOTE: The pie chart is divided into 6 pieces, so if you’re serving fewer than 6 different kinds of pie, print off another copy of the “pies” printable, and cut out additional slices of what you need. (Ex. You have 3 pies: pumpkin, pecan, and chocolatepie. So you’d print off 2 copies, and cut out 2 slices of pumpkin, 2 slices of pecan, and 2 slices of chocolate.)
If you happen to be serving all 7 kinds of pies that Slightly Stationery illustrated, what you’ll do then is cut two slices in half, and have them share a spot on the “pie chart.”
Use a pencil or pen to poke a small hole in the middle of the middle ofthe fork.
Glue the illustrated pie slices onto the pie chart. Smooth them down really well.
Use the pencil or pen again to poke a small hole in the middle of the pies.
Align the two holes, and secure the fork to the pie wheel with a brad.
Flick the fork, see where it lands, and chow down on your pie!
Remember when you used to ask the Magic 8 Ball super important questions? Like, “does my crush like me?” Well gone are the days of asking about boys, and here are the days of asking the Magic 8 Ball pumpkin more pressing questions, like, “can trick or treater’s expect Kit Kats on Halloween?” (To which the Magic 8 Ball pumpkin would reply, “No, cuz I know you’ll eat all of them before 6:30pm on Halloween.”) The Magic 8 Ball pumpkin will not disappoint!
And I’ve made the DIY process even easier for you by making free printables to go with it (the “8” on the front and the answering blue triangle on the back).
Start by painting the whole pumpkin blacks. (If the stem of your pumpkin is too long, you might want to try to snap it off.) Add 1-2 coats. Let it dry completely.
NOTE: I recommend getting a pumpkin that is round, but with at least 1 side slightly flat (or 2 sides opposite from each other, both slightly flat). It’ll be easier to affix the printables if the surface is somewhat flat.
Print off the free printables on normal copier paper (NOT cardstock). Why? Just cuz copier paper has a little bit more give than thick cardstock; this will make it easier to glue it on the pumpkin. If you use cardstock, the printables might wrinkle too much.
Cut them out.
Resize the circles if they’re too large for your pumpkin. Do this simply by tracing a cup or another round object on top of the printable.
Use glue dots to stick the printables to the front and back of your pumpkin.
And that’s it!
NOTE: If you’re making this DIY before a Halloween party or to put on your porch for Halloween night, I recommend you make it a day before, and don’t let it stay out in the rain – this DIY isn’t meant to last as long as the rest of your regular pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns.
Make sure your large cardboard box is the right size for you to fit inside it. If needed, you might have to do some free-hand “tailoring” on the box if it’s too large for you. If you have to do this, I recommend using hot glue to affix any pieces together.
Before you start cutting any holes for your arms and head, you’ll need to cut off the bottom flaps so you can get in and out of the box, of course! With the box still flattened, use a knife to carefully cut off the folding flaps on one end. Now you can assemble the box! When taping the flaps down, tape it on the inside.
NOTE: I recommend also using some hot glue to glue together the flaps to make it extra sturdy.
Use the knife again to cut out holes for the arms and head.
Head outside, or somewhere very well ventilated, to spray paint the box. Spray the box with 2 coats. Let it dry completely.
To make the Pocky sticks, cut off a large piece of the brown wrapping paper. Tape it down on a flat surface, and paint three-fourths (3/4) of it with the brown acrylic paint. Let it dry completely.
(This is what you’ll be cutting out the Pocky sticks from. The painted, brown part is the chocolate, and the brown wrapping paper is the biscuit part.)
Cut out Pocky sticks from the painted wrapping paper you just made. Round both ends.
Print off the free “Pocky” letters printable, and cut them out, using the Xact-O knife to cut out any white spaces in the letters. (Download the freebie here!)
Arrange the Pocky sticks on the front of the box, and use hot glue to glue them down. Keep gluing down the Pocky sticks until you achieve the look you want. Use this photofor reference!
Using the tan acrylic paint to paint shine lines. To see what I’m referring to, seethis picture.
Arrange the “Pocky” letters, then hot glue them down.
Using a small paint brush and white acrylic paint, free-hand “Glico” in the top left corner. Let it dry, and then your costume is completely finished!
