Epic Valentines + Envelopes

Want a BIG idea for showing love at your Galentine’s Party? It’s almost our favorite holiday (okay, yes, every holiday is our favorite) so that means we get to break out our biggest ideas! And, who doesn’t want a GIANT love letter? Or better yet, a wall full of them? You have to admit that this would be the most perfect photo booth backdrop.

You can create an enormous card for each of your friends to open at your Galentine’s celebration! Add in your favorite inside joke, remind your bestie that she’s killing it at her new job, instill how much you love your girl’s new haircut, etc…

For these envelopes we were able to dust off our skills from last year’s Balloonagram. Head over to that post for a step-by-step on how to assemble the perfect vessel to let someone know just how epically sized your love is for them!

And be sure to keep a watch on our Instagram for more photos from this shoot and the other fun Valentine’s Day ideas that we have up our sleeves!

Petal Skirt Halloween Costume DIY

Need an easy last minute Halloween costume that’s a floral phenomenon? This flower petal skirt is your jam.

DIY Halloween 2018-23

You will need:

  • paint in your choice of color (watercolor or acrylic)
  • paintbrush
  • sharpie or pen to draw a petal shape
  • scissors
  • cute string/twine
  • 24×18″ poster board (the amount will vary on how large you make your petals
  • hole puncher

Step 1


Sketch out the shape of a petal on the poster board and cut it out! Repeat with as many petals as necessary (we made a few extra petals so they would overlap when the skirt was put on).

Step 2

DIY Halloween 2018-26

Paint your petals! We used a mix of pinks, coral, and yellow. Watercolor paints make for a light, delicate look, while acrylic paints are a little more bold. We mixed a little water with our acrylic paints for a look right in between.

Step 3

DIY Halloween 2018-27

Hole punch (or give them a little stab with the scissors, depending on how dangerously you live) two small holes on the top of each petal, one on each of the furthest top outer corners. String the petals together with string of your choice. It doesn’t show very much once the petals are strung together, but we chose to use a pretty, metallic ribbon. Because why not more shine??
