Sugar Rush: Quick and Easy Buñuelos Stacks


Recipe for quick and easy buñuelos

Recently, Anissa made some buñuelos with her mom and brought them in for everyone to try. They were an instant hit around here! SO delicious. They’re basically crispy cinnamon sugar goodness, if you’ve never tried them before. They kind of reminded me of the cinnamon crust my grandma used to make for me when I was a kid. Which made me like them even more.

And the fact that it was something that her family had been making for years and years made it all the more special. Soooo, I asked to share the recipe and here we are. Quick and easy buñuelos stacks for V-Day and beyond.

Sugar Rush: DIY Candy Boxes + Homemade Chocolate Cereal Truffles for V-Day


Colorful DIY Candy Boxes with Bold Patterns + Homemade Chocolate Fruit Loops Truffles

I was poking around online one night and discovered that you can buy paper mache heart boxes for chocolates, etc. Which led to me getting pretty hooked on the idea of gifting homemade chocolates in DIY heart shaped boxes for V-Day. But they’re $10 a piece, so I thought I’d come up with a more cost effective way to make it happen.

After a little more digging, I found some heart-shaped candy boxes at Target (they probably have them at any grocery store) that had flat lids for $1 a piece and decided to just give those boxes a makeover, rather than pay 10 times as much for a blank box. So easy!

After their mini makeover, I filled the boxes with some homemade chocolate cereal truffles (recipe below) and for just a few dollars a piece, I have homemade gifts for pretty much everyone I know.

Stick It To Me: 5 Minute DIY Sticker Gift Wrap


Try this DIY gift wrap idea with a pack of stickers and just 5 minutes.

One of my absolute weaknesses when it comes to giving gifts is gift wrap! Of course I care what’s underneath the packaging, yada yada, but for whatever reason, I am obsessed with wrapping paper. It must be because I’m dying to create my own collection or something because I just can’t get enough…

We all know just how close Valentine’s Day is getting, so it feels like a pretty good time to DIY a little something for your V-Day pressies anyway. And it only takes 5 minutes, so you pretty much HAVE to do it. Right? Right!

Color Block Vibes: Color Blocked DIY Nail Art


Color Blocked DIY Nail Art

Rollin’ with another nail DIY because V-Day is right around the corner and I needed an excuse to share these insanely cool 3-D cat cards. Not a cat lady, I swear. Haha.

But seriously, this color block nail tutorial is a fun one, if you’re looking for a bold design for your digits. AND it marks the (unofficial) kick off of a new Paper & Stitch hashtag… #colorblockvibes. Which I’ll be explaining in detail very soon, but for now, feel free to add the new hashtag to all of your colorful color blocked photos.

Thyme to Be Mine: Grapefruit Vanilla Thyme Ice Cream Recipe


Grapefruit vanilla thyme ice cream

February is national grapefruit month. And since today is February 1st and all, we might as well celebrate with a grapefruit vanilla thyme ice cream recipe. Right? Right!

At this point, I’m pretty sure you know that I have a deep love for ice cream. And while a lot of the ice cream recipes around here are on the richer side, this one is super light…almost like a sorbet. So light and fresh tasting. I love it. Want to make your own?
