planted mugs + printable tags

planted mugs + printable tags

printable plant tags

yesterday, i was so inspired after seeing these planted mugs over on design*sponge, that i decided to make some myself, as well as design some gift tags to go along with them! i was looking for a gift idea that was sweet, affordable and memorable – and voila. thanks design*sponge!

planted mugs + printable tags

each planted mug only cost me $6 to make (can i get a woot woot?!). here’s what you need:

supplies:

- any type of mug – i grabbed mine from target for $3 a piece
- small plants to fit inside – i got mine from lowes for $2.98 a plant
- a few pebbles or rocks (you can usually just find some outside!)

directions:

first fill the bottom of each mug with a few pebbles, then simply place your plant in the mug and pack down the dirt around it. you may find it helpful to loosen the roots before you insert the plant.

another nice touch is to add a gift tag and a small bag of your favorite coffee, tea or mulling spices. i went ahead and made these tags a printable for you, so you can use them as well! just fill out the back with the plant instructions so that the recipient will know how to take care of the plant. i punched a hole in the tea bag and tag and tied it up onto a twig (stuck in the soil) using baker’s twine.

printable cooking envelope

December 12, 2012

hey guys! i’m so excited to welcome back the most lovely abigail page as a contributor for going home to roost! after taking a short hiatus to get hitched (you should see their wedding website!) abigail is back and will be popping in each month with a pretty printable for you. i hope you’ll enjoy these and join me in saying, welcome back abigail! we’ve missed you. :) xo, bonnie

cookie envelopes-1-4

Handmade gifts can be some of the best – especially when they’re edible! However, there just seems to be something wrong with loads of gorgeous holiday cookies that represent hours and hours of baking… on a plain paper plate with green plastic wrap. These festive cookie envelopes are the perfect way to present just the right amount of sweet to your favorite recipients.

These can be printed on any lighter color of card stock, and the liner can be made ideally from wax paper (more detailed instructions are on the printables themselves). The closure is where it can get really fun – buttons, ribbons, and washi tape are what I used but I would love to do some with yarn pom-poms, big stickers… it’s really endless. One tip – flat cookies that are less than three inches in diameter work best with these envelopes. If you try to put a very round cookie in there it might not close all the way. Four tiny cookies would also be a really cute option.

printable christmas gift list

each year i print out a little christmas gift list to help keep all the gifts i buy/make for others organized. this way, i can see what i’m giving everyone and make sure i don’t forget anything! this year, i’ve also added a ‘wrapped’ check box, just to make sure everything arrives in the mail and gets put under the tree.

printable christmas gift list

i begin each year by jotting down the ideas i have for everyone (in pencil). then, as i purchase (or make) each item, i put a check mark in the box labeled ‘bought’. then, i check them off one more time as i wrap them just to be sure nothing gets forgotten. i also usually jot down the price next to the item, so i can keep track of what i spend each year!

printable christmas gift list

because there’s nothing worse than having a loved one find your gift list, i’ve added an optional ‘side 2′ to this printable. to use, just turn your piece of paper over and print these two ‘no peeking’ labels on the back. fold from top to bottom, then right to left and the labels will show on both sides when your list is folded.

i hope this helps keeps your holidays organized! love, bonnie

p.s. don’t worry mom, this isn’t actually what i’m getting you!

november desktop calendar

november is here! november is here! it’s always a special month to me- fall colors are vibrant and i get to begin the process of hibernating. it also means big changes for us this year (more on that later) which i’m very excited about. this month’s desktop calendar is inspired by fall foliage and darker evenings, crisp mornings and my favorite color.

september desktop calendar by going home to roost

another month has come and gone, which means it’s time for another desktop calendar! i have so much fun making these each month, and i hope you enjoy them as well. :) to me, september always means that summer is beginning to wind down and that autumn is just around the corner. brisk(er) mornings and hazy evenings bring just enough chill for a light sweater. ahhh.

bicycle wedding tag printable

Have you ever received a food gift and really wished for the recipe once the goodies were gone? I know I have! This little printable recipe card is perfect to give with your delicious concoctions. It’s also a beautiful little way to gather family recipes and kitchen secrets. I love reading through my grandmother’s cookbooks.

You can print this recipe directly onto 4×6 index cards if you have a printer with those capabilities – just make sure your printer is set to a 4×6 page size and print one side and then the other. Otherwise, print the full page PDF with two sides on card stock, and cut to size!

I hope that many wonderful recipes are written on these cards – enjoy! – Abigail
