Surf party printable invitations, surf boards, and vans

Summer is such a fun time for parties and a surf-themed party is perfect for boys or girls who love fun in the sun! A surfer can use any occasion to have a surf party, but pool parties work particularly well for this theme.

Surf Party Printable Invitations

I recently released some surfboard clipart in my new Etsy shop and started playing around with the graphics myself (yes, I really love that I get to spend my days playing with art and graphics!).  I ended up creating these party invites that can be easily personalized just by writing in the details.  The invitations are pretty informal, so I kept them on the smallish side at about 4×6 inches.

Surfboard Party Banner (and more!)

The surfboards are the really fun part about this set.  I created a PDF download of all of the surfboards from the set that you can print and use in so many different ways!  You can see part of the banner I made in the image above.  I used the vintage vans on either end of the banner and strung yarn through holes I punched on the surfboards.  There are 11 different surfboards in the set and 4 different vans.

You can cut out a bunch of these surfboards and use them as decorations throughout your party.  Tape some to toothpicks and use them as cupcake toppers.  Tie a string to one end of them and use them as gift tags.  There are so many ways you can use these printable surfboards for your surfing party.

Create Your Own

If you have some great ideas for using these images in a different way, or if you want to be able to personalize your surf party more, then you may want to consider purchasing the vector files from this set.  You can check out the listing here, where the vector files, in addition to PNG and JPEG files are included (FYI- all clipart purchased from my shop are available for limited commercial use).

Downloadable Surf Party Invitations and Surfboard Graphics

I have put all of the files on one printable PDF file.  Please not that these free printables are for personal use only.  You must buy the clip art files from my shop if you wish to use any of my images commercially.  Thanks!

favor box for Cinco de Mayo or Mexican Fiesta

Cinco de Mayo party favors are super-easy with these free printable boxes. In festive colors, each box has a top flap that reads “Fiesta” and is reminiscent of the papel picado flags that are used at many Mexican celebrations. The boxes are a great size for party favors so you’ll be able to fit lots of goodies in them.

Pink “Fiesta” Favor Box

Green “Fiesta” Favor Box

Yellow “Fiesta” Favor Box

To assemble your box, cut along the solid line. The printable template does not have dashed lines on it so you’ll need to use the folding guide image below as a guide for scoring the paper. Use a ruler and a bone folder to score your lines. If you don’t have a bone folder, you can use a knitting needle or the blunt side of a butter knife to make your lines. The goal is to make a depression in the paper to ensure your folds are nice and clean!

Printable Easter memory matching game

Easter Memory Game

Memory matching games are always a favorite around here. They’re definitely a great boredom buster to play by oneself, but we always prefer to play with each other, each of us taking turns trying to find a match.

kids playing memory game

I’ve been having fun coming up with the images in this set and was so happy to finally be able to share it with the kids.  Actually, the whole project was a collaborative effort with them giving me ideas here and there.  The kids played twice this morning before running off to enjoy the beautiful day.

Free Printable

To make the Easter Memory Game you first need to choose your backing color:

Print two copies of the backing of your choice onto plain white card stock.  Next, re-feed those papers back into your printer.  You need to know which side your printer prints on so that the memory game images will print onto the opposite side of the backing.

Now, print two copies of the memory game file:

You’ll now have the Easter Memory Game images on the front, and a colored backing on the back.  You can use a paper trimmer or a paper punch for the most accurate cuts, otherwise just use regular scissors.

Tip:  When cutting the squares, decide if you are going to cut on the inside of the black line or the outside and try to stay consistent with your choice.  This will make the cards look their best!

Palm Sunday is this weekend and we’ve created a simple paper craft scene of Jesus riding a donkey to help remind us about the day and teach our kids about this special time leading up to Easter.

Palm Sunday paper craft of Jesus, donkey, and palms | From www.paperloving.com

To make the scene, start by printing and cutting out the templates.  Jesus and the donkey will be folded down the middle (tip: the use of a bone folder will help keep your folds neat and tidy). The donkey’s head should be glued together, but the body should open up.

Fold the tab on the side of the children scene towards the back and glue this to the back of the building scene. You will also need to use a craft knife to cut little slits in the hands of the children to hold the palms.  To create the palms, cut the palms out of the big sheet then fold them in half.  While they are still folded, use sharp scissors to cut slits along the sides, loosely following the lines as a guide.  Unfold the palms and try to bend and shape them a little to add some realism and dimension. With only the stems folded, gently slide them into the slits you cut in the children’s hands.

Jesus is most easily displayed standing next to the donkey.  However, with some strategic folding and a cut up the middle to separate his legs, Jesus can also ride the donkey (see below).
