DIY Summer Flower Garland

DIY summer flower garland

Guys, this week is full of exciting announcements! We’re kicking off with this garland inspired by our products designed for Alexis Mattox Design. The grand reveal of all our party products for AMD will be on Wednesday, so stay tuned! The florals we used were so fun and poppy that we needed to make a garland inspired by the wrapping. This is the perfect decoration for all your summer soirees, and pretty enough to keep up all summer long! Made with crepe paper and cardstock, it’s a great project to work on with friends or spread out over a few days. Summer days are meant for crafting, am I right?

In other news, this garland also goes perfectly with our new line of Chatbooks! Next week, all six of our designs will be available during the Chatbooks summer sale! You’ll see covers using the three patterns from our wrapping paper, as well as three new corresponding ones! We can’t reveal all the fun yet, but make sure you get your pictures ready so you can cash in on some sweet deals next week over at Chatbooks! These patterns will only be available for a limited time, so don’t dilly dally. DIY summer flower garland
