I love that there is sustainable art and art for a cause. I fell in love with Children Inspire Design a couple of years ago and was really excited about their Global Compassion project last year. With every Global Compassion print sold, money was donated to 20 pregnant women and children of Kenya which was able to feed them for a month!
Children Inspire Design uses recycled paper for creating all of their collages and the prints are then printed using recycled card stock and soy ink at a certified green print studio. Not only are the prints gorgeous, most have a positive message!
When planning the woodland party, I thought about Children Inspire Design’s Forest Collection and thought it would be super cute as decor. And then would end up in little man’s woodland room. When I was talking to Rebecca, the designer, I found out about her other line of printables for parties! She was gracious enough to send prints and printable files and they were the perfect finishing touches for the party. We were sent the Nature Collection 8X10 set, plus a Hedgehog print. The collection includes Owls, Turtles, Birds, and Trees. They look wonderful together or spread out in the same room. The whole set is currently on sale for only $60! You can also purchase each separately for $22. I was reading the Children Inspire Design blog and came across a post about DIY corkboard frames. I had some leftover IKEA cork placemats and thought they would be perfect for the project! I decided to use Washi Tape as a border since it doesn’t hurt paper and works really well. I think it makes the print really pop- especially when hanging in his room! You can find step by step instructions here or get creative and make your own frames with other materials! We were also sent the Children Inspire Design recycled garland. The garland is handmade using recycled paper (book pages) by women’s cooperatives in Mexico and Haiti to provide handmade, heartfelt decor for your child’s space. The garland is 12 feet and can be used in nursery’s, play spaces, family areas and more. My daughter colored the natural garland to match our party decor. She used colored pencils, so it was a faint color. Colored garland is also available- $12 each strand.
The printables were a ton of fun for personalizing the party. The PDF kit comes with a happy birthday Banner, cupcake wrappers, party hats, gift bag copy, garland, invites, thank you notes, placemats, place cards, and a welcome sign. I am totally in love with the whimsical designs! The whole woodland birthday PDF kit is $15 and you print them yourself. I took the file to Staples and had them print on cardstock for the best results.
The printables were loads of fun. Even though I didn’t design them, I felt like I had a big part of the decor. From the printing to cutting and finding ways to display. We hung the banners from the twine and used washi tape to hold them together.
