-Peony Favors-

Whether you need Wedding Favors, Birthday Party Favors, or you just want to make the cutest things ever... here is the how-to for these fab favors!

Materials: Crepe paper, scissors, floral wire, pink cube boxes, x-acto knife, wire cutters

Step 1: Take a fold of crepe paper or tissue paper and cut off a 4″ section.
Step 2: Take the fold and cut along one side about 3/4 of the way through making thin strips of fringe.
Step 3: Cut long sections of wire about 10″ long and short sections of wire 3″ long. If you are making a lot of flowers then cut all the wire at one time for the process to go a lot faster.
Step 4: Fold the long piece of wire in half. Begin wrapping the petals around the center and pinching it tight around the base. When finished, tie a small piece of wire around the fringe to hold it in place.
Step 5: For the petals, take the fold of crepe paper and cut off a 4 inch section.
Step 6: Take that section and cut it in half the same direction as the grain. (Crepe paper has a grain and this will matter later on.)
Step 7: Cut out a petal shape so that the grain of the crepe paper goes from the top to the bottom. It should look like there are lines running from the top of the petal to the base. To save time, you can cut the petals all at one time by putting them in stacks.
Step 8: Take the petals and with both thumbs stretch the crepe paper so it makes a nice curved petal. This is where it will matter what grain the paper is going in so that it stretches right. Again, t go quicker you can even do this to a small stack of petals at the same time.
Step 9: Taking the center of the flower begin placing the petals around and then pinching it and holding it at the base. When you are happy with the fullness of the petals take a small piece of wire and tightly wrap it and twist it to secure it in place. When you are done you should have a nice simple flower.
Step 10: Trim the wire base.
Step 11: Cut out a few leaves using the same process as Step 7-8.
Step 12: Attach them to the base of the flower with wire and wrap tightly to secure in place.
Step 13: Use an x-acto knife to cut an “x” into the top of your box.
Step 14: Slip the flower through the hole and secure with tape on the other side. Voila! Fin.

Oh Happy Day! Valentine's Ideas We LOVE!

Posted on January 23, 2017 by Jordan Keith | 0 Comments

Oh Happy Day! is one of our favorite blogs & sites, they're full of colorful, fabulous, and fun ideas. We can't get enough of them! We wanted to share a few of our favorite ideas over the next few days for the perfect Galentine's Day, V-Day photo backdrop, and how to make the cutest balloons you ever did see! Just typing this makes us happy <3
-Valentine's Day Heart Balloon Wall-
What's a party without a photo backdrop?! We fell in love with this DIY balloon wall!

Materials Needed: pencil, 160Q long balloons in various colors, mini balloon hand pump, double sided Shurtape

Step 1: Inflate a bunch of 160Q long balloons. Release a little air from each so they have a little more flexibility.

Step 2: Lightly sketch hearts on the wall with a pencil.

Step 3: Apply horizontal strips of double-sided Shurtape within the heart shapes. Leave 2-3 inches between each strip. You can substitute the Shurtape with loops of gaffers tape if you prefer.

Step 4: Starting with the outer edge of the heart, line the shape with long balloons. Pinch and twist the balloon at the sharp turn to create a more distinct point.

Step 5: Continue Step 4 until the heart shape is filled with balloons. You can cut balloons to size by inflating a balloon to the length that you need, knotting both ends, and trimming off the leftovers. Make a many as your heart desires!

Holiday Traditions

Posted on December 22, 2016 by Jordan Keith | 0 Comments

What are some of your holiday traditions? Where did they come from?
When starting your own family, you're able to create new family traditions & must-do's for the holidays. Some traditions last a lifetime + can be the most memorable part of the holidays.
Here is a list of Family Traditions from many different families that we love!
Countdown to Christmas - Counting down to Christmas was always exciting as a kid! I loved advent calendars!

Now advent calendars don't have to be just for kids. Take a look at this fab Wine Advent Calendar for the adults!

Bake Christmas Cookies at Home- We ALWAYS baked Christmas cookies with the family a few days before Christmas. We would make Tea Cookies, Sugar Cookies, Lemon Bars, Chocolate Chip cookies, and raspberry jelly filled cookies. It was one of our favorite traditions. Here is a list of Christmas Cookie Recipes.

Picking Out Your Tree- Did you go to a tree farm every year and pick out your tree, wreath, and mistletoe? We always did, until recently. Now, at home, my new tradition is playing Christmas music, hanging the stockings, pulling out the 6 foot fake tree, and decorating it the Monday after Thanksgiving.

 VS.

 

No matter what your Christmas traditions are, we wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, & a wonderful New Year.
