Anthropologie Sneak Peek!

This past weekend we hosted a Mother’s Day craft event with Anthropologie in Walnut Creek, CA. We had such a fun time, and were amazed by how creative our attendees were! I’m so excited to share a little sneak peek of some of the beautiful photos that Kirsten Julia Photography captured and will share the rest of them, along with a fun film from Twenty Twenty Studios, soon!

The idea behind our craft was to make a modern pressed flower card design. We used fresh flowers and pressed, rolled, and hammered them to (literally) get the juices flowing.

The result was a watercolor-like look that could be applied to any paper product you want; bookmarks, wrapping paper, etc. Even the remnants were beautiful!

I loved how the crafters all interpreted the craft in different ways: some made a bouquet shape with the flowers before pressing them onto their cards, others put down tape to create a striped motif.

Thank you so much to those who came and crafted with us, and thank you to the amazing Anthropologie staff as well; Alex and Karen you were such a great help and it was wonderful meeting you! Do you have your Mother’s Day gifts/crafts all ready to go? I think any mom would love receiving these beautiful homemade cards! I love that you can pick the flowers you use from your garden, or while out on a walk, etc.

Stay tuned for the full DIY post soon!
