Save 10% on your Party Supplies at Paper Mart

“This is a sponsored conversation from Savings.com. All opinions are my own.”

At Paper Mart, they have the largest selection of stock packaging products found under one roof and they are the leading discount packaging company. They’re also my go-to packaging supplies place because I love their beautiful collection of ribbons, gift boxes, and much more. Having four girls in the house we have our fair share of birthday parties to throw and attend. Wrapping a present is how I show my love… I want the presentation to be spot on. I’m so happy I found Paper Mart many moons ago, it has saved me literally an arm and a leg.

 

Having gift bags on hand makes life easier than trying to run out and find some in a pinch, although we throw lots of parties goodie bags is always the last thing iI remember. I love how Paper Mart has the Matte Patterened SOS Food Bags. These SOS food bags are printed on versatile white grocery style paper bags. They can be used for just about anything from holding baked goods to party favors and gifts. I buy them in sets of 50 for only $9.59 which is much better than any party store and I always have leftovers for the next party or teacher gift that comes up.

 

If you haven’t checked out the assortment of gift wraps please go take a look. They have literally everything but my favorite for birthday parties is Party Wrapping Paper and its available in a variety of sizes and styles. Choose from 15’ and 100’ rolls to larger 417’ and 833’ counter rolls.

 

 

You can’t wrap that present without a cute bow. Paper Mart has a wide selection of bows, ribbon and other products to wrap in style. I absolutely love the Sparkle Holographic Curling Ribbon. This sparkly curling ribbon features a holographic design on one side with a gleaming satin finish on the other. It has a smooth surface, which makes curling with scissors a breeze! This ribbon is great for creating stunning curls and cute bows for presents, tying balloons, and embellishing party decorations, crafts and much more!

Start a New Tradition with the Family Honor Plate

This sponsored conversation on The Family Honor Plate was written by me on behalf of Fly By Promotions, all opinions and text are my own.

 

The Family Honor Plate is a ceramic honor plate based on the Fruits of the Spirit found in the Bible under Galatians 5:22. To take those reminders a step further, the entire family can join in and create an honor plate. I chose to do this plate with 1 of my 4 children, as she struggles a lot with ADHD/ ODD. My daughter was so excited to paint this and learn more about the background of why. This plate represents who has made great choices, struggled with something and overcome. I especially love this plate because everyone can celebrate the child or person who has made great, loving choices that week.

The Family Honor plate comes with everything you need to create your own decorative plate.

 

Kendall started by ripping open the box, as she usually does with stuff that comes in the mail. She settled down more as I went thru and told her step by step what was needed to do to complete the plate. We wiped the plate down with alcohol to clean off any residue as instructed and began to set up.

 

 

Kendall and I talked thru the whole process of creating the Family Honor Plate about what it means to have self-control, showing kindness and being loving. Some of these things she really struggles with and the idea of this plate for her is wonderful. She needs recognition as we all do sometimes when we show great decision making.

 

 

Along with decorating the plate, we used the Table Thyme Discussion Cards and I. Communication is the key to building relationships and creating memories that last a lifetime! Having four daughters I need to know whats going on and make sure they are always open for conversation.

 

 

 

 

 

Table Thyme Discussion Cards

Enjoy more than a year’s worth of unique questions that will have your family sharing about everyday and unique topics, thoughts or memories that normally aren’t brought up or even thought about. Your family will learn how to articulate and share special memories, learn how to voice their opinion, and for some – how to even have an opinion. Every question is followed up with “Why?” to take your answer to a deeper level. That’s where the magic is. So now when asked…”What is your favorite dessert?” Rather than someone’s simple answer of “Apple Pie”, the whole family gets to walk down memory lane because of the answer to “Why?” is it reminds them of Grandma Smith who always made apple pies with them when they came to visit. Her house always smelled of fresh baked pies when you walked in the door. This opens up the unique memories of everyone in the family. Each member will get to enjoy a walk down memory lane with Grandma Smith. With this one simple question, the family has reached a new level of intimacy while bringing memories and the love for one another to life. And that was just one person’s favorite dessert. Wonder what the next person’s favorite dessert is and Why? Sharing, listening and genuine laughter cultivates connection and stronger relationships within your family. You may not remember what you made for dinner some of these nights, but there will be conversations that you will never forget.

Get creative with Sweetlings

This sponsored conversation on Sweetlings was written by me on behalf of Alex Brands. I was also sent the Sweetlings to use for this post, all opinions and text are my own.

 

 

As a parent, I’m always looking for toys that inspire creativity in my girls. I want my kids to do more than sit in front of the TV – I want them to do activities that engage the mind. When I saw Sweetlings, I knew it was the perfect toy for my children.

 

 

Sweetlings are cute characters that your kid’s design using whipped clay and accessories. There are different characters to choose from and each character is made to resemble a sweet treat. For my girls, I chose RAINBOW SPRINKlING, which resembles a donut. The kit includes everything needed to make the character. You get the whipped clay, plastic sprinkles, glitter, stickers, arms, a decorative background, and more. You also get tweezers and instructions. You can also purchase additional accessories.

 

 

What makes this such a great toy is how much creativity it allows. While each Sweetling does come with instructions, you can let your children do their own thing to create the character the way they want to. Best of all, it’s something your kids can display and play with. It’s like making their own doll or action figure. Plus, Sweetlings are a whimsical toy that any child with a sweet tooth is sure to love.

 

 

 

 

Of course, the price tag doesn’t hurt either. Sweetlings can be purchased at Amazon, Toys-R-Us, and Target for only $9.99 for each character. This makes the toy super affordable and what parent doesn’t want to save money? If you have more than one child or want to buy more than one Sweetling, you can get the Sweetlings Sprinkle Shop for only $24.99 and create three characters. If this is the type of toy your children would absolutely love, you’ll definitely want to grab this deal.

 

 

 

Sweetlings are such a fun concept and sure to be a hit with children of all ages. If your children love to craft and play, you can’t go wrong with this toy. Click on the banner below to check out all of the Sweetlings and to watch some videos. You can also find out which retailers near you carry Sweetlings!
