fourth of july paper bags are my fave

4th of July printables

If that American flag jumpsuit just isn’t festive enough for you this weekend, how about printing some American pride onto paper bags? They’re perfect for storing loot from the parade, picnic lunches, or goody/distraction bags for the kids. You could even print the designs on removable tattoo paper.

Seven Layer Bar Ice Cream

Start with:
coconut milk ice cream

Mix in:
graham cracker chunks
caramel sauce
toasted coconut
mini chocolate chips

One time Ben and Jerry’s ran this contest to come up with a new flavor and I submitted this idea. I wasn’t ever contacted but then a little while later I walked into a scoop shop and saw that the latest addition to the freezer was seven layer bar. Royalty check please.

PS I can’t for the life of me think of what the seventh layer would be. I left out nuts but what else would you put in these?

Alison is currently on a Search for Your Awesome party tour and last weekend she made a stop in Denver. I was in charge of the decorations and on the morning of the party I decided the lack of garlands was alarming so I whipped together this colorful little ditty. It’s no sew, made from a few supplies, and requires little skill. Click through to get the two step tutorial.

ice cream tees are my fave

kid's ice cream tee

You know how parents tend to force their interests on their kids? I force my love of ice cream onto Beck. Last summer he wasn’t much of a fan but we’ve been working on it and yesterday he asked for a cone at 10 AM. Now I feel like he can wear this ice cream cone tee I made for him honorably.
