Washi Tape Box DIY

by Ashley Page Norton 

I’ve been a huge fan of washi tape for a while and love using it to make permanent designs. Since it’s intended to be removable, using a little decoupage glue over top of the finished design helps the tape to stay stuck. With this method you can whip up some colorful boxes to use as gift packaging that can be repurposed to hold whatever the lucky recipient chooses!

Mini Cactus Piñatas

by Kathleen Ballos

I’ve been loving the cactus trend that seems to be happening lately, especially since I do not have a green thumb whatsoever. It’s almost Cinco de Mayo, so I thought it would be a lot of fun to make these miniature cacti piñatas to celebrate! Since you pull a string instead of smashing these piñatas, you can keep them up as decorations even after the candy has been eaten!

Craft Night: Floral Design Class

Here are a few photos from our Floral Design Craft Night last week. It was so fun to host Studio Choo at our studio – they’re amazing! Each class started with introductions, and I shared a few ways that Bing image search can help with finding color inspiration. Then, Alethea and Jill taught the basics of flower care and how to build floral arrangements. After their lesson, each person got to choose their own flowers and start designing their own bouquets. The Studio Choo team wandered around and gave advice and instruction. I was super impressed with everyone’s creativity! Thanks to my friend Rebecca Wright for putting the evening together. We’ll be announcing more craft nights soon – so stayed tuned! (And make sure to join our mailing list to get early access to sign up!)

For the goodie bags, Poppies for Grace sent over a confetti balloons and sweetheart gift kits for everyone who attended. We had a few extra, so we used them as decorations.
