The most popular post this year has been our 2nd Star Wars Banner post.  It is really nice to get such positive feedback on the pieces we do! 🙂  THANKS GUYS!!  So I am thinking it would be a good idea to post the patterns for the last of the 3 banners we have made so far… while you still have time to make it for the big party.  You ARE throwing a May the Fourth be with You Party, right?

Getting Ready for May the Fourth! (More DIY Banners)

DIY Star Wars Party Garland/Flags with Yoda, Stormtrooper and Darth Vader /// We add new Star Wars crafts and fun to our blog every week! /// #starwars #theforceawakens #yoda #stormtrooper #darthvader #silhouettecameo #diecut #starwarsparty #maythefourthbewithyou #party #birthday/// maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com

Just over 3 months left to get our May the Fourth be with You Party crafts done.  Time to get started!  Good thing I have my new best friend: my Silhouette Cameo 2 Die-cutting Machine.   I sound like an infomercial, I do, but I have to say I am in awe of its almost unlimited possibilities… If only my available time was unlimited as well.

Star Wars themed Christmas Card with Star Wars Snowflakes by Anette Nam Design /// We add new Star Wars crafts to our blog every week! /// #starwars #theforceawakens #snowflake #christmascard /// maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com

A few weeks ago I shared that M4P mom was worried that our Christmas cards were going to be Star Wars themed.  Well, she was right!  (My mom is almost always right…) We sent them out a couple of weeks ago, and now I’m sharing them with you guys too.

The cards had a cut Star Wars snowflake on top, once you flipped that up, you can see the text, photos and design elements – all which are Star Wars themed. (Go further down the post to see the card in its entirety).

But this post really is not about Star Wars…. ‘cuz as much as we focus on fun, and arguably frivolous things here on this blog, we all know these are not the things that truly matter in life.

Today is Day 2 of “M4P Mom’s Star Wars in Santa Hats” week.  (or as she says it in Swedish, Star Wars i Tomtehattar.)

The patterns can of course be used for a lot of things other than  T-shirts.  I can see these patters being used for silk screens on a variety of different materials, or printed out and used as Christmas gift tags (or even Christmas cards – despite what my mom says).  If I had an embroidery sewing machine, I would totally embroider these on tote bags, or kitchen towels.  Feel free to send me your ideas – and PLEASE send me your pictures!

My Mom Loves Me! (DIY Flags)

Star Wars Garland and Flags (Downloadable Pattern) // Check out our blog for lots more Star Wars crafts and decor. // #starwars #starwarsparty #maythefourthbewithyou #starwarsbirthday #banners #stormtrooper maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com

My mother says she hates Star Wars (or “Star Tracks” as she calls it).  Hate is a strong word, but she just does not understand why anyone could possibly be interested in it. She does however love interior design and decorating, and she is amazingly good at it – in addition to being very creative. And being my mom, she wants to support all my endeavours!  So she has been calling me with ideas of things to feature on the M4P blog. Thus we are going to start a new feature here at on our blog: M4P Mom. She already has a whole list of suggestions for cool Star Wars Day decor and party ideas. As we create them, I will take photos and write the how-tos here. THANKS mom for always being my biggest fan and champion.
