Disney Princess Squad Goals (Free Printable)

Disney Princess #SquadGoals (free printable)

Hello!

I’m a little embarrassed that this is my first post of the new year, and it is already APRIL. Truth is, I’ve been working hard on a very exciting project! For now it is top secret, but all will be revealed at the end of the year. So apologies for my absence, but also a huge thank you to all of you who have continued to read Magpie DIY. I’ve been truly blown away by how popular this seems to be, and by how many of you have kept coming back for more. I promise things will become more regular round here from now on.

To show my appreciation, I wanted to share this printable I made last month. April is a busy month in my family, with a silly number of birthdays clustered together. One of which is my little sister’s 21st (today! Happy birthday Pixie!). Crazy to think. #SquadGoal culture is everywhere right now (thanks Tay-Tay (Swift, obv)), with my favourite incarnation being that of the Disney princesses. My little sister loves all things Disney, so when I found this t-shirt, my thoughts went straight to her.

I wanted to create something a little more grown up (she is 21 today, after all), eventually deciding on chic, framed wall art.

The Mademoiselle Privé exhibition at Chelsea’s Saatchi Gallery is causing quite the stir amongst fashion fans; I went during opening weekend with my best friend, and within half an hour the queue had snaked its way outside the gallery’s grounds and halfway down the King’s Road (which, if you haven’t been, is long). To cut a long story short, we ended up leaving the queue before we entered (so I haven’t actually seen the collection yet), but being the eager beavers we are, we had arrived early and so were in the gallery’s grounds during our short-lived queueing. This meant that when we left, the organisers assumed we had been inside and gifted us with a chic, grown-up party bag (!). This was a canvas tote, printed with the exhibition’s minimal logo, and a matching poster. I’ve been in the market for some new wall art for a while now, so being gifted these materials was the inspiration for my latest tutorial, incorporating Chanel’s favourite embellishment: the pearl. And rest assured, I will be revisiting the exhibition (and posting photos on Instagram), I just need to wait for my gallery gal to return from her jaunts abroad!
