Chalkboard and Mason Jar inspired {free} printables to use for a bridal shower, wedding or anniversary party!

With all of the talk about weddings and bridal showers around the stores lately I thought that this would be a good time to offer another free printable with a "love" theme. You can use the printables as gift tags for favors, signs for sweet tables and table settings, tags for a wishing tree and wrappers for chocolate bars.

Working out a design for the downloads was easy, I simply combined some of the hottest trends of the season ... chalkboards, mason jars and the colour purple with pretty flowers.

I added all of the printables to a sweet table display in the Toronto store this week.

Note: If you are interested in making the tissue paper pompoms that are on display in the photo above I will be doing a diy tutorial for them in the next blog post - so come back to visit!

You can either personalize the printables on your computer or use our chalk markers to write directly onto the "chalkboard" area of the tags. Guests can use a regular pen to write on the back of the wishing tree tags.

Here's a quick tutorial for how I packaged the chocolate bar favors using 
my printables and wrapping paper ...

1. Use wrapping paper to cover the chocolate bar. A wrapper paper cutter made cutting the wrapping paper into small squares a breeze. 
2. Wrap the chocolate bars with the wrapping paper. Hint: I always use two sided tape - the tape is hidden away and your edges look clean.
3. To add the wrapper, start by centring the wrapper from the front and wrap around to the back. Tape the wrapper in place using two side tape.
