DIY: My Paper Ornaments

Whenever I get crafty, I feel like a kid! So yesterday, I had a great day making homemade ornaments for our tree using my handy HP Printer (go here for our current HP printer giveaway) and some free downloads from the HP Creative Studio.

Take a look at what I made... (For the downloads, click on the photos.)


This paper snowball is my favorite. If you're going to make one, this is definitely the one to try.




Since we celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah at our house, I had to make this cute dreidel for my daughter (It actually works).


These were really easy to do. I just needed some glossy brochure paper, a pair of good scissors, a glue stick, a hole punch, and some ribbon. If you're looking for some fun ornaments, holiday cards, and decoration, check out the HP Creative Studio. There's a lot to explore.

TRENDS: Holiday Party Hot Cocoa Bars

I'm so into hot cocoa bars this year because they're warm, tasty, inexpensive, and best of all... unexpected. Stealing from the traditional ice cream bar idea, a hot cocoa bar is where you set out cups of hot cocoa (or a carafe) and a selection of toppings and let your guests go to town.

For kids, I recommend putting out a variety of candy toppings (flavored marshmallows, crushed peppermint, M&Ms, etc.), and for adults, you can kick it up a notch by putting out some delicious liqueurs. Take a look at some of these fantastic ideas we've seen.

Paula from Frog Prince Paperie puts an elegant spin on her hot cocoa bar with an assortment of hot chocolates on a stick.


Kori from Paper & Pigtails calls her hot cocoa, "snowman's soup," and creates a whole party around it, including giving out snowman's soup hot cocoa as party favors.


Amanda from Shindig Parties to Go creates this hot cocoa bar for her Candy Christmas Party with a lot of DIY details including that dapper snowman.


Smita from The Party Wall creates a Winter Warmer Party in hues of blue and silver with a  hot cocoa bar featuring flavored vanilla and hazelnut syrups. Yum.


I hope to show off more of your hot cocoa bars this winter. Stay warm and have fun!

FREE Christmas Kids' Activity Sheets and Coloring Sheets

This Christmas, I asked a few of our designers, as part of their free Christmas printables collections, to create some kids' activity sheets and coloring sheets to keep your kids busy during the holidays. These sheets would work great at a party, a restaurant, on a trip, or even on a snowy afternoon.

Please print these out and have some free fun with your kids (or maybe even use them to steal a few minutes for yourself).

GIVEAWAY: Win an HP Officejet 7500A Printer worth $179.99

If you read my blog, you know I'm really excited about my brand new HP Officejet 7500A Printer.  What I love most about it is that it can do everything! It great for professional printing, home printing, photo printing, faxing, copying, and crafts. Cool, right?

So yesterday, I told my husband, David, how much I loved it, and his response was, "If you love it so much, why don't you just marry it?" Hmmm.

Since I can't actually marry it (although after his comment, I was ready to), I thought I'd give away a printer, and not just because it's the holidays, but because I want someone else to understand my feelings!

It's simple to enter. Just head to our Facebook page, "like" us if you haven't already, and enter your email address in the box provided on the page. (You won't be signing you up for anything, it's just so we can contact you if you win).


The contest ends Sunday, December 18th at midnight (PST) and is open to US residents only. We will use to generate our winner, and will notify you by email. Good luck!
