Craft the Rainbow Launch Party Recap

Launch Party

Time has literally FLOWN by these past few weeks and I can’t believe we made it through! With all the preparation for Craft the Rainbow, we’ve been pretty busy around these parts. But it was worth every second! Last Thursday we celebrated with a Craft the Rainbow Launch Party and it was so wonderful to see your excitement about the book! Because I know many of you were not able to attend (but totally should have flown out! ;), I wanted to share all the details from the special night. Indulge me for just a bit longer.

Three DIY Paper Fascinators

Three DIY Paper Fascinators

Any royal wedding fans out there? Guilty! You may or may not know that I was present for Kate and William’s wedding back in 2011! I was living in Copenhagen at the time so it was just a hop, skip, and a jump away, I couldn’t resist. I wore a paper rose fascinator that I made and was actually featured on CNN and Vogue. My claim to fame, ha! For the upcoming royal wedding of Harry and Meghan, we wanted to create some new versions in our favorite medium. We made Three DIY Paper Fascinators that you can flaunt in celebration of the big day. Pulling inspiration from some of our favorite fascinators we’ve seen, this DIY paper versions are a cinch to whip up and could be mistaken for the real thing! And hop over to our royal wedding shop to commemorate with some souvenirs!

Printable Papel Picado Streamers

DIY Papel Picado StreamersYou’re probably familiar with the beautiful tissue paper garlands that you commonly see at traditional Mexican celebrations. It’s a decorative craft made from intricately cut paper, often showcasing very elaborate designs and bright colors. An inspiring example of Mexican folk art, we love the depictions of birds and fun florals. They can be a little tricky to come by so we wanted to create our own designs that we could customize to whatever color palette we wanted! We originally used them in our Cinco de Mayo party here and made them a mini version, but you can size them to whatever you’d like. Use these Papel Picado Streamers at your next fiesta! Cut out the patterns with a die-cut machine using our free templates or an Exacto knife and glue some twine onto the back of them. They would be the perfect decoration for any party with a fiesta feel, a backyard BBQ, or Cinco de Mayo of course!

Paris Cake Topper and Confetti

Paris Cake Topper and Confetti

Paris is without a doubt one of my favorite cities to visit. Paul and I traveled to Paris last October for a wedding and it was honestly one of the most magical trips I’ve been on. However, had I had this illustrated travel guide, “Paris in Stride: An Insider’s Walking Guide”, I’m positive my trip would have been even more wonderful! Written by Jessie Kanelos Weiner and Sarah Moroz, two passionate ex-pats who give you an insider’s scoop on the best things to see, eat, do, and experience in their adopted city! The best part about this book is the dreamy watercolor illustrations. It’s full of detailed walking maps, sites, restaurants and so much more by Jessie Kanelos Weiner! We wanted to give you a taste of her beautiful artwork so we’re offering the most charming Paris Cake Topper and Confetti, illustrated by Jessie herself, for your next soiree!

Plus, those tulip bulbs should be sprouting up within a month or so! So even if it’s still too early in your neck of the woods to start planting your seeds, put up this Paper Tulip Backdrop to tie you over!
