I'm thrilled to be hosting a workshop today for Darling Magazine and wanted to share the DIY here too! While this workshop is holiday themed, with a simple switch of the color palette the tassel garland (top) and bunting (bottom) can be used for party decor any time of year!
For step by step instruction on how to make the tassel garland, check out our DIY: Paper Garland video (fast forward to 1:00 if you'd like to skip the dot garland DIY). And here's a download for geometric bunting instructions and a printable alphabet template. We've included the entire alphabet from A to Z and threw in some fun symbols too so that you can make your bunting say whatever you'd like! Have fun!!
You may have noticed that all has been pretty quiet on the blog front here at L&P. Not only are we in the midst of our most busy wedding season yet (yay!), we've also been madly designing, photographing and prepping our online shop re-launch (double yay!)!
I'm thrilled to unveil four papergoods suites: Archetto, Classico, Geometrica and Petalo! Each suite is comprised of a multitude of matching elements for everyday (notecards, business cards, notepads, announcements) and party (invitations, coasters, wrapping paper, gift tags)! Want to know the best part? Everything is personalizable and you can get 20% off with the coupon code "HOORAY"!! (Offer expires October 31, 2014)
Here's a little peek into the design inspiration behind the new items in our shop:
A twist on the very popular chevron pattern, the Archetto papergoods suite features a bright color palette paired with very clean sans serif typography.
This papergoods suite is very near and dear to our hearts since its inspiration is derived from our very own L&P logo! This clean, minimalist suite features the serif font and a red, white and soft grey palette. The couples version of this suite features a twist on the ampersand/heart from our logo!
Our most popular suite to date, the Geometrica suite (inspired by our collab with Chandra of Oh Lovely Day!) is now expanded to include party decor and gift tags!
The swoopy, swirly script pairs with a clean sans serif, hand drawn flower motif and mint green, buttercup and charcoal palette to create this modern yet sweet suite! Even the banner on the back has space for a personalized message too!
And that's not all — we have big plans for the shop in the coming weeks! Shortly we'll be releasing designs for holiday which will include personalizable photo and non-photo holiday cards, gift wrap and gift tags. Shortly after that our 2015 calendar will be unveiled and ready for purchase too! It's popular for holiday hostess gifts, stocking stuffers and office gifts too! And then in the new year, we'll be releasing wedding suites and heaps more so stay tuned!
You may remember last year when we did a collab with Chandra from Oh Lovely Day to create her moving announcements? Well, that project inspired the entire Geometrica papergoods suite! So when Chandra contacted me to do a guest post while was settling in with her new baby, I knew that Geometrica party decor DIYs were in order! There are free printables and full instructions available for download on my guest post for Oh Lovely Day!
