Free Printable Mother's Day Bouquet Wrapper

No, I did not realize the wrappers were upside down until I finished taking pictures, at which point the wrappers were covered in questionable green goo

I love having flowers in the house, they definitely brighten up the place. My mom and I love peonies and once they start blooming we like to sneak out at night and go on peony raids. Don’t worry, we don’t take them from unsuspecting neighbors, just from bushes hidden away that no one will even notice a peony or two missing from 😉

Free Printable Mother's Day Bouquet WrapperFree Printable Mother's Day Bouquet WrapperI’m super duper excited for peonies to start blooming. If you are lucky enough to have peonies blooming right now you should definitely print out this free printable mother’s day bouquet wrapper and wrap up a big ol’ bunch for your mum.

Materials:

DIY emoji heart valentine with free printable | Popcorn and ChocolateInstructions:

  1. Trace or free hand a heart eye emoji onto your shrinky dinks using a yellow sharpie. For size reference mine was about 3.5 in diameter. Once you have traced the emoji, color it in using red, yellow, and grey sharpie.DIY emoji shrinky dink pin | Popcorn and Chocolate
  2. Cut out the emoji.
  3. To shrink the shrinky dinks you can either follow the instructions on the package (in the oven at 325°F for 2-3 minutes; make sure to place them on parchment paper) or you can use a heat embossing tool for about 1-2 minutes. Again, make sure to put them on parchment paper so they don’t stick to your surface. The shrinky dinks will shrivel up and then begin to flatten out – once they are flat again they are done.
  4. Taking some plain white paper, trace the size of the emoji on it and cut it out. Glue this to the back of the emoji using Mod Podge. This is so you won’t see the pin back through the pin.DIY emoji shrinky dink pin | Popcorn and Chocolate
  5. Using a hot glue gun, glue on the pin & back to the white paper.DIY emoji shrinky dink pin | Popcorn and Chocolate
  6. Print out our free printable and stick the heart eye emoji in the middle of it.

Free Printable Super Bowl 51 Commercial Bingo Cards

Printable super bowl bingo cardsThe moment you all have been waiting for is here… We have your free printable Super Bowl 51 commercial bingo cards for you! It has been our tradition to play bingo during the commercials of the super bowl every year, and since we couldn’t find very good bingo cards last year we decided to make our own. And since everyone loved that post so much  we knew we had to make some new printable bingo cards for this super bowl LI.Super bowl 51 commercial bingoAll you have to do is print out the bingo boards and the chips if you want to use our little footballs and helmets and put on the big game. We have made a total of 6 different boards so you can play with 5 other people. Or, if you are like Rose and I, you can each take 3 boards and man 3 different bingo cards.Free Super bowl LI bingo boards

Free Super bowl commercial bingo boardsLast year we played with bits of popcorn as our chips but as they accidentally got eaten every once and a while we’ve opted to add some free printable chips as well. But, feel free to use anything you want – scraps of paper, m&m’s, beads – anything!Free Super bowl commercial bingo boards

I’d recommend printing the super bowl bingo cards at about 55% if you want them to be on the smaller side – that is what is shown in the pictures here. Also, don’t forget to print the chips small too – I believe I printed them at about 45%.

Top 10 Posts of 2016 with Behind the Scenes

I’ve been seeing these top 10 posts of 2016 pop up all over my feed lately and was just dying to find out what Popcorn & Chocolate had in store. I can’t believe a whole other  year has gone by. This year was full of some fun crafts we shared on our blog and some not so fun transitions and moves in our personal lives. Throughout it all we’ve always had our blog going, even if it has meant spending our whole weekend dedicated to taking pictures and creating crafts. I love the grind of blogging and wouldn’t have had it any other way. So, without further ado, here are our top 10 posts from 2016 with a bit of behind the scenes commentary as well (inspired by Laurel at A Bubbly Mess).

10. Free Thanksgiving Table Printables thanksgiving grocery list | Popcorn & ChocolateAs you make your way down the list you will see that this was the year of free printables. Since they seem to do so well we will definitely incorporate lots more in 2017! Behind the scenes: I sent this picture to Rose of me using our printable to plan my Thanksgiving. Double behind the scenes: my Thanksgiving was delicious (thanks for asking), Rose’s was a disaster as her thermometer exploded in the oven and ruined her whole turkey. Thanksgiving printable

9. Flamingo and Swan Pool Float Costumes Bird pool float costumes | Popcorn & ChocolateI’m so glad you all loved these costumes as much as I did! They were a hoot to make and looked ridiculous on, which is a sure sign of a good costume. Behind the scenes: What you didn’t see with these pictures is us attempting to take them. I kept laughing at Rose behind the camera. I’m pretty sure she still has these costumes floating around her house…Pool float behind the scenes

8. Fruity Flower PotsDIY Stamped Clay Flower Pots | Popcorn & ChocolateAnother favorite DIY of mine. These guys were super fun to make but also so fun to take pictures of. Some crafts just don’t want to go your way when you are photographing them, but these little gems were great. Behind the scenes: We used one fake air plant because Rose keeps killing all of ours. Before you scroll down to the next picture can you guess which one is fake from the 3 above? Fruity pots behind the scenes

7. Candy Cane Lawn Flamingos Candy Cane Lawn Flamingos | Popcorn and ChocolateAgain, so glad you guys liked these silly candy cane flamingos! Behind the scenes: When I was making these my mom kept laughing at me every time I went outside to spray paint them. Then I left them drying propped up in our wheelbarrow in the garage so everyone saw them whenever they went in out of the garage. This was me on the day I photographed them – red nose and all. It was cold. Flamingo behind the scenes

6. DIY Pom-pom Easter Baskets DIY Pom-Pom Easter Basket | Popcorn & ChocolateBehind the scenes: these baskets were super easy to make but the hard part was finding the actual basket. We were at my house in NH and my mom had Easter baskets she was getting rid of so we were going to take them but forgot them so we scrambled all over Allston trying to find some cheap but decent looking baskets. We ended up finding these at the dollar store and they seemed to get the job done. Also, fun fact, we were in San Francisco when we wrote and published this post.

5. Colorful Etched Vases with Flower Puns and Sayings Colorful etched vase with sayingsThis is one of our most popular DIY’s on Instagram as well so I’m not surprised to see it make it on the list. Behind the scenes: Oh, where to start? These vases damn near killed us. It was one of our first crafts we made for Homedit so we wanted to make them perfect. Well, we soon found that what we originally wanted to do, which was to have the etched words colored, would not, will not work. We were stubborn AF trying to figure out a way to make this work. We must have dyed a million jars with different solutions. Eventually we flew in the flag and just went the easy way out and spray painted them. So much easier.

4. Cactus Piñata Cindo de mayo cactus pinata | Popcorn & ChocolateThis was one of my all time favorite crafts to make. I mean, it’s a cactus piñata, what isn’t to love? I was smitten with it. Behind the scenes: See how proud I am of my piñatas? I made that Aries ram for Rose’s birthday and promptly named her Lucinda and the cactus Señor. I convinced myself that I had a hidden talent of piñata making… perhaps we shall see if this holds true in 2017??Piñata behind the scenes

3. Nautical Hand-Painted Backgammon Board Handmade backgammon board | Popcorn & ChocolateThis was another one I loved to make (and play)! It involved us going to the beach to take pictures, which is always a win in my book. Behind the scenes: the one problem with taking pictures at the beach is that it can be windyyy. Everything kept blowing around so we had to strategically place rocks and bags onto the towels. Unfortunately we couldn’t do the same with my hat… Backgammon behind the scenes

2. 2016 Printable Oscar Ballots 2016 Oscar Ballot | Popcorn & ChocolateAnother printable for the top! Behind the scenes: This ballot came out great but what you didn’t see were the countless hours we took to make sure everything was aligned nicely and that the colors were bold enough. Not to mention having to look up most of these movies as we hadn’t seen any of them… eek.

1. Printable Super Bowl 50 Commercial Bingo Super Bowl Bingo Boards | Popcorn & ChocolateI am not even surprised that this is the number 1 post of 2016. These bingo boards got us so much traffic, we were tootin’ our little horns we were so excited. You best believe we will be doing them again this year. It’s our little tradition since college so we gotta stick with it. Behind the scenes: Our other tradition is to make so.much.food. and eat it all through the whole game – just the two of us. Here was our spread: lots of veggies and apples(?), pretzel bites, a faux chicken tender (we thought we should have some protein), chips, and a huuuge bowl of a vegan cauliflower cheese dip. Sooo good. I think I eventually got up for dessert too. No shame. super bowl behind the scenes

Anddd there you have it, our top 10 posts of 2016. I love looking back on our crafts and seeing which ones do well. I get so happy when I see that a craft I loved to make is popular. I hope you all are having a wonderful start to 2017 and hope you all stick around to see what we get up to this year. Let us know in the comments below which one of these DIY’s you liked the best!

Here is what I wrote without thinking when I was trying out the 2017 champagne bottles. I sent this picture to Rose but she was grocery shopping so I’m going to guess she didn’t notice I put 2007 either.  #whatyearisit?

Free Thanksgiving Table Printables

thanksgiving table decorations | Popcorn & Chocolate

Did everyone have a fun and spooky Halloween? If you missed the pool float costumes we made, go check them out! But now that Halloween is (sadly) over, it’s time to start thinking about Thanksgiving: food, guests, what we are thankful for, etc. We made some free Thanksgiving printables for you to start planning out your Thanksgiving with. And keep your eye out for more posts to come to set the whole table for Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving printable | Popcorn & Chocolate

My favorite part of Thanksgiving is definitely getting to cook. We are people who eat Thanksgiving dinner at a normal dinner hour, so I find myself antsy during the day, anticipating this exciting meal, so to distract myself, I like to take over in the kitchen.

I am thankful for list | Popcorn & Chocolatethanksgiving grocery list | Popcorn & Chocolate

One of the Thanksgiving printables we made for you is to organize your grocery list. This is great if you want to simply make a list organized by recipe so you know which ingredients are a part of which dish. This printable is also great if you have guests who may have food allergies. You can write all the ingredients in each of your dishes so everyone can see! I filled mine out with the recipes that I like to use, which I’ll share at the bottom of this post.

Thanksgiving shopping list | Popcorn & Chocolate

The other printable is for you to put at each person’s plate so your guests can jot down what they are thankful for. The automatic settings on your printer will try to fit the printable to the page, but I recommend printing it scaled down somewhere between 80-100% (mine is 85% in the photos). This way it will fit nicely on a plate without taking over.  I love going around the table and talking about what we are all thankful for, but I always feel really uncreative while everyone else has such clever thoughts to share! I’ll have to start thinking up a few this year to put on my place card. It’s fun to have a mix of some serious ones and a few silly ones. What are you guys thankful for this year?

Rose’s Thanksgiving dinner:

  1. Stuffing is my favorite. I love to make this pear sausage stuffing from Martha Stewart. The fennel and the pear are so delicious with everything else on the thanksgiving plate! Note: if you buy a pre-stuffed bird, try to remember to half the stuffing recipe or you’ll have wayyy too many leftovers (unless you’re cooking for a huge crowd)!!
  2. We always make two different cranberry sauces too: this classic slow cooker cranberry sauce and Madhur Jaffrey’s cranberry chutney. I think we often like the chutney best but it’s fun to have both. Plus one is in the slow cooker so it doesn’t use up a pot or a burner on the stove and it can stay warm right up until dinner.
  3. I always roast a huge pile of veggies: Brussels sprouts, butternut squash, parsnips, carrots, beets, almost every root veggie in the grocery store. I’ve used different seasonings in the past, but the preferred is classic rosemary, salt, and pepper (sometimes with a hint of maple syrup or maple sugar).
  4. Last year I made these pumpkin blondies from The Healthy Maven and an apple galette.

What are your favorite thanksgiving recipes?  Anything I should try this year?

2016 Oscar Ballot | Popcorn & Chocolate

2016 Printable Oscar Ballots

2016 Oscar Ballot | Popcorn & ChocolateAward season is in full swing and the 2016 Oscars are this Sunday people! Get your butt in gear and go print out our Oscar Ballots for a fun game to play whilst you have to sit through all those commercials. Because let’s face it, there are a lot of commercials to get through and there are only so many times you can stand up to refill your popcorn bowl before you finish the whole bag..2016 Oscar Ballot | Popcorn & ChocolateI think my favorite part about watching the Oscars, aside from the fashion, is the huge list added to my list of movies I need to watch in the near future (or when they are available on Netflix). Usually I go into the Oscars having only seen one or two of the movies, which I then proceed to vote for for everything. You see I’m not a huge fan of going to the actual movies, so I miss out on a lot of the movies that are nominated until after the fact. Doesn’t bother me though – I still enjoy watching the Oscars and voting nonetheless! Plus, as I already said, I get a big list of movie possibilities come next Friday night.2016 Oscars | Popcorn & ChocolateI realize most of you actually do like to go to the movies and have seen most of the nominations before the Oscars. Then this free printable Oscar ballot is perfect for your viewing pleasure. All you have to do is print it out and check which box you think should win for each category. You can check as you watch or do it all in the beginning as a little pre-Oscar party fun. At the end you can tally up your score and see who got the most wins!2016 Oscar Ballot | Popcorn & ChocolateEmbarrassing side note: just wrote this whole post writing ballot as ballet and didn’t catch my mistake until now. I mean an Oscar ballet would be pretty cool too but I don’t think we can send you a free printable of that.

Now since I’ve embarrassed myself enough for one post I’ll leave you with our downloadable ballot here:2016 Oscar Ballot
