Felt Fortune Cookie Garland DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

September 13th is Fortune Cookie Day. Who knew!?! Celebrate any event with this re-usable, easy-to-transport, or even mail-able (packed up in a Chinese food take-out container) felt garland. In place of strips of decorative paper, you could even insert personalized fortunes – for example, “You will always be surrounded by those who love you.” Perfect for a baby shower, bridal shower or engagement party.

Crepe Paper Butterflies DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

What could be prettier than brightly colored butterflies fluttering around your cake? The trick to these easy-to-make butterflies is in the shape of the paper – basically a diamond on top of a square. Usually used to make gorgeous paper flowers (see here, here and here), the natural grains of the crepe paper lend themselves perfectly to the creation of these butterflies.
