Hey, boys!

Yup, we’re talking to you! Do you already have gifts in mind for the 14th? If not, don’t fret because we’ve got you covered. We’re sure you all have received handmade gifts from the important women in you life, and now it’s your turn to go the extra mile and show them how much you love and appreciate them with handmade gifts!

Wait, before you back out and say that crafting is just too hard for you, we invited 6 gentlemen – Harry, Gomer, Carlo, Robins, Mawsy, and Seb –  to the shop and let them try out some simple craft projects that they can give for Valentine’s!

Letter Herb Planter for Your Mom

We’re sure your mom will love this one! Imagine her 3D initials turned into something she could use at home. Here’s Carlo to show us how to make a letter herb planter.


Things You Need

  1. Cut open the 3D letter using an Xacto knife.
  2. Get your mom’s favorite Hey Kessy washi tape design, and use it to add color to the 3D letter.
  3. Apply several coats of Mod Podge on the outside and inside walls of the letter. This will make it more durable.
  4. Put soil inside, and carefully plant the herbs.
  5. Don’t forget to water it before giving it to your mom!

  5. Stick the quilled paper strips onto the card stock.


Paper Flowers for Your Girlfriend

Flowers come first on every VDay gift list, right? So why not give flowers that your girlfriend can keep forever! Let’s see how our kiddie intern Seb helped Robins make a paper flower bouquet in only six easy steps.
