Ruff Draft: WELCOME SUMMER and Free Printables!!!

The end of the school year is almost here, and summer is fast approaching!  I always try to do something special for my kids on the last day of school.  They absolutely love ice cream and love sundae bars, so I thought it would be fun to create an Ice Cream Kit that they could use at home.

Everyone needs end of the school-year and summer-time gifts, so why not share some {Free Printables} to use for summer celebrations!!! (Download at the bottom of this post.)


Ice Cream Kit

I found an ice cream kit on the Tip Junkie, and knew right away, I wanted to create something similar for my girls!

Final touch – add ribbon and party logo around basket


This basket is the perfect gift as we welcome summer for: kids, teachers, neighbors, birthday party favors and more!

Hope you have a great end of the school year!

PS. The matching invitation is available in the shop here.


  1. I hate to be nit picky, but I think you meant twine, instead of twin. At least I hope so, it would be really hard for me to find a twin to use for this project. ;-0

    1. I fixed it – yes… finding a twin would make this project a little more challenging 🙂

    1. It should work w/ the little Pin bookmark thingy…. Is it not working for you? Feel free to pin!

  2. Hello 🙂 I found your web site by blogs. It’s fabulus I love what you made. Thank’s for the free part. And a question, did you accept french credits card ? or it’s just for Amercains (i don’t have a paypal count).
    Sorry, my english isn’t good. Bonne journée 🙂

    1. Hi Wendy! Paypal actually has an option to checkout with a credit card as a “guest”….. yes! Thank you!

  3. Hi! These printables are GREAT, esp the home organizational ones!

    I wanted to personalize the blank ones in Illustrator – says there’s a password. Could you please share that so I can open to print? Thanks!

  4. j’aime beaucoup !… quelques éléments vont se retrouver sur mes pages de scrap.. merci pour le partage…

  5. Are these printables still available? I can’t seem to find the link…only one that redirects me to this same page. Thank you!
