how to make your own printables

Next week is Lili's birthday and she will be 5.  I have been looking for some cool cupcake toppers and hadn't found any that really stood out and then i came across a great tutorial on themotherhuddle blog which shows you how to make your own printables.  Heres my first attempt but i was just messing about. It is done using picnik.

I'm going to have a go at doing some Christmas labels when i get a minute. 

Staying with the theme of Lili's birthday i have been starting goodie bags for the party and have made these to put in the bags.  They are milkybars wrapped in background paper and i have made a label to stick on - wish i had found picnik when i made these!!!
These are halloween ones i have done as well!!
Last year i bought a green plastic wreath in the sale in Tesco.  I intended on buying christmas bits and jazzing it up for this year.  However i changed my mind and made it into a halloween wreath by spray painting it black and adding embellishments.  i glued them in place with my hot glue gun.

and finally i bought some cute owl stickers from accessorize and made these cards today
