friday favorites on thursday | july 11, 2013

Yes, the Friday Favorites are once again a bit early this week since the July kits from Citrus Twist will be revealed tomorrow. I'll have three new layouts to share with you then, and I'm super excited about this month's kits! I wanted to make sure that these picks made it to the blog, so here's your weekly dose of creative links a day earlier than usual. :)

  • I'm constantly looking for little ideas to use up scrap papers, and these origami gift boxes at The Red Thread look like a great project to put them to use on.
  • I'm absolutely smitten with this gorgeous decorated paper lantern, and you can find instructions for making your own on Agus Yornet's blog.
  • Oh Happy Day has a bright, fun, and free set of summer printables available for download.
