A Colorful New Years - DIY

A Colorful New Years - DIY

As this year comes to an end I would like to "Thank You" all from the bottom of my heart for all the love and support you have shown me this year! I'm excited for 2018 and all the wonderful possibilities and adventures it may bring. I of course could not end the year without a few last minute colorful DIY for all those New Years Parties! I wanted my decorations to be colorful and fun. I absolutely love the colorful confetti by Shopstudiopep and no party is complete without it! I first started with the theme and color combination. I went with "This Will Be My Year" and my branding colors. I cut out the words out of a silver metallic card stock with my Silhouette, which I can't live without. My next project was making some color block glasses for the photo wall which I have to admit are so cool! I normally keep it small with just family and friends and we have a ton of little ones that sometimes can't make it till the ball drops. So when I came across this awesome design in the Silhouette Design store I knew I had to have it. A few months back I bought a tons of these little jars at Target and decided to fill them with colorful gum balls with one large one with the saying "waiting for the ball to drop" how adorable is that guys?! Now when the kiddos come over they get to have one of these jars just incase they don't make it till midnight. Who I'm I kidding I may not make it till midnight! LOL I wish you all a safe and wonderful New Years with your family, friends and loved ones! See you next year... A Colorful New Years. Fun DIY projects for New Years. These are color block New Years glasses.

Begin by purchasing and downloading your designs. Make sure to measure your jar to ensure your vinyl designs will fit properly. Once you have opened your laid out files prep your Silhouette to cut vinyl, card stock and send your files to cut. I went with 3 different colors in vinyl but you could also just use one. I used a heavy metallic silver card stock for the "this will be my year" design. At this point you will prep your vinyl with the tranfer paper and place your circle file first onto your jar making sure it's level and centered. Then continue with the other text files. Once you have placed all your vinyl files onto your jar you can begin to fill it with your colorful gum balls.
This is my year! This silver card stock design is sure to be a hit! This is a perfect way for the kiddos to enjoy the ball drop. DIY jars filled with gum balls as party favors. Happy New Year's Everyone!
