INKLING: new year’s resolution printable

A little new year printable for you just in time for your New Year’s Eve party. Simply download the file, print out and cut them out.  Resolutions can be big or small. From life changing healthier choices to simple things like, being kinder, getting more sleep, or taking more time for yourself. Not having a party? Fill them out yourself or with your family. Roll them up and store them away until next year and see how well you did.

CELEBRATIONS: New Year’s Eve Confetti Straws

New Year's Eve Confetti Straws via homework | carolynshomework.comEvery year I try to come up with a new way to package up confetti for New Year’s Eve. That way, everyone just gets a small handful and the confetti and glitter clean up is somewhat manageable. Besides, the package makes it all the more fun.

The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~82~ & a new year roundup

Thank you to everyone who stopped by this week and shared a project on the Inspiration Board. It was a smaller, more intimate gathering this week but as always, all the projects were wonderful.

As we head into the New Year, I want to thank you all for your visits, comments, links and friendship. Some days I can’t believe how many of you stop by to visit my little corner of the creative world here at homework. I’m looking forward to another year of creative sharing with all of you.

As we head into the last weekend of 2012, enjoy these projects in the spotlight this week.

Celebrations: new year resolution bottles

If you’re having a New Year’s Eve party, these would make great party favors for your guests.


Upcycle bottles {left} or purchase little travel size containers {right} to make resolution holders. Or use a variety of bottles – mismatched bottles would make an interested table display.


Type up and print out New Year’s resolution papers. Guests can write down their goals for the new year.


Once your guests write down their resolutions or dreams, roll them up and pop them into the bottle.


For the upcycled bottle use a piece of corrugated cardboard rolled up to seal the bottle.


Guests can take home their bottles and their dreams.


Even if you’re not having a party, this would be a fun activity for the family. Keep the bottles and see how you did in a year.

Celebrations: new year’s countdown & confetti



Christmas is over and you know what that means... the new year is around the corner. This year has flown by so quickly but I guess I say that every year.


If you’re planning to ring in the new year with friends and family, here’s a fun party accessory that’s easy to make.


Little countdown matchboxes filled with confetti.


I wrapped my matchboxes in different colored foil paper. This paper came in an origami paper set but any festive paper will do.



You can buy confetti or use saved up paper punches from your crafting projects. My micro paper punch has a holder that stores the little punches. Luckily, I’ve been punching a lot of tags and paper lately.


Add some twine or ribbon and the countdown numbers.


Make as many sets of {10-1} that you’ll need so that each guest will have a box of confetti to toss at midnight. The more guests… the more vacuuming you’ll have to do in the morning!

Inkling: black & white new year’s party – new year’s ball

What New Year’s party would be complete without a New Years ball? To keep the black and white party theme going, I made a decorative New Year’s ball to hang over the table.


Here’s how you make a New Year’s ball.
  • Start with a Styrofoam ball. I used a small 2-1/2 inch ball.
  • Poke a hole through the center of the ball and insert a string or ribbon.
  • Tie off the bottom of the string or glue it so that the string will not come out.
  • Take a stack of basket coffee filters and use a felt tip pen or sharpie to color the edges.
  • Let the ink bleed onto the edges a little.
  • Crinkle the filters from the center and start hot gluing them onto the ball.
 
  • I used a pin every now and then to make sure the filters would stay put.
  • Use a lot of filters – the fuller the better.
 

  
Hang your New Year’s ball and wait for the countdown.


The final black and white New Year’s party idea will be up tomorrow. Are you ready for 2011?

Inkling: black & white new year’s party – resolutions

Do you make New Year’s resolutions? I always think if you’re going to make a resolution or goal, it’s better to put it in writing.

To continue the black and white New Year’s Eve party theme, you can help your guests start off 2011 with a new list of goals. Work out more? Spend more time with family? Get healthy? Start a blog? Whatever your goal, New Year’s is traditionally the time to set them.

I made these 2011 goal lists in Word and simply printed them out and trimmed them. A small cigar band is made out of black cardstock so guests can roll up their lists and take them home.
See you tomorrow as the black and white New Year’s party ideas continue...

Inkling: black & white new year’s party – confetti

The black and white party ideas continue from yesterday. A New Year’s Eve party wouldn’t be complete without confetti.

At midnight, besides a glass of champagne or sparkling cider, every guest should have a packet of confetti to ring in the new year.

You can buy little glassine bags or make your own. I made these little packets out of wax paper. Just cut a piece of wax or parchment paper and use a glue stick to close up the edges. Fill with confetti and staple closed.

Check back tomorrow for more black and white party ideas as we count down to 2011.

Inkling: black & white new year’s party – fortune cookies

The Christmas rush is over. Presents are unwrapped, the tree is dropping needles and you have a to-do list a mile long. If however, you want to throw a New Year’s Eve party, you can quickly pull together a fun black and white theme.

These paper fortune cookies are easy to make and would add a fun twist to your party. All you need is paper, tape and a gel pen. You can find the how-to here.


I printed out a black and white image on plain white card stock. Using a circle cutter, I cut a 4 inch circle and folded the fortune cookies. I hand wrote fortunes on black paper with a gel pen and inserted them into the cookies.

Check back tomorrow for more black and white New Year’s Eve party ideas.
