Happy Spring DIY Gift: Basil in a Jar April 03 2015, 1 Comment

I have an easy DIY gift today that anyone would enjoy receiving. While plants can be intimidating to some, basil is easy to care for and makes a great windowsill plant. Plus, who doesn't love fresh basil in their supper?

While it is a bit late to sprout these as an Easter gift, a happy spring is reason enough to give a jar to a friend.

You will need:

- A mason jar

- Basil seeds

- Rocks for drainage

- Potting soil

- Gift tag and string or ribbon

Place the rocks in the bottom of the jar and then cover with potting soil. Sprinkle about 5-8 seeds on the top of the jar and barely cover them with soil. Water the seeds. Because of the rocks on the bottom you don't really need to worry about over watering.

Read your seed package, but generally after 5-10 days your seeds should sprout. After they sprout you can thin them out so there are 3-5 sprouts per jar. Once leaves have formed you will want to place them in an area that gets some sun, like a windowsill.

Now all you need to do is add a pretty tag and gift them to a friend for some spring cheer. I practiced my calligraphy with some blank tags I had. If you don't have blank tags you can make your own with our Recycled DIY Gift Tag Tutorial, or use the watercolor floral gift tag from our April subscription!

Don't forget to make an extra basil jar for yourself. Here is a photo of one I've had for a few months. It's still going strong! Planting in a clear jar is pretty interesting because you can see all of the roots grow in addition the leaves.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Happy Spring!

If you click the "One-time purchase" option you will only receive one month of Pennie Post cards.

With the "Subscribe & Save" option, your credit card will charged once when you purchase for your first month of Pennie Post, and then each month thereafter on the 15th of the month for the following month's shipment. Initial purchases made before the 15th of the month will receive the current month's mailing. Purchases made on or after the 15th of the month will receive the first mailing the following month.

Chit Chat with Kyla from Keeks Paper Co. January 20 2015, 0 Comments

February is just around the corner and Pennie Post is excited to be partnering with Keeks Paper Co. Every February Pennie Post subscription will come with a Keeks Paper Co. Valentine's Day card! I was lucky enough to ask owner and designer, Kyla a few questions about her stationery business. Enjoy!

How many years have you been designing your own cards, and how did you get started?

I have been designing cards for 2 years. I had been helping out at a flower shop, (The Floral Fixx in Winnipeg) and was chatting with my boss and coworkers about my hobby of painting and doodling in the evenings. Julie, my boss, said why not create some cards and sell them at the shop. So I did! I decided to approach other locals business' as well with my cards and it's been going great!


I’m always interested to see how other designers think. How do you gain inspiration to design you cards and what is your design strategy like?

My creative process usually begins on those fateful mornings when I accidentally drink too much coffee, or any coffee at all for that matter! I am quite sensitive to caffeine. The ensuing result turns to me laying in bed that night, staring up at the ceiling with no chance or hope of turning my brain off. So I make the most and see where my thoughts lead; creating and planning new designs and ideas that have built up from nuanced inspirations taken in over the past however long. I write them all down in my handy to-do app and see how they evolve from there. I am usually inspired by patterns and shapes, I like taking natural art forms and materials and manipulating them digitally, but not too much that they lose that natural feel and texture. 


Every day must be a bit different when owning your own business, but what is a typical day like at Keeks Paper?

My typical day starts with either breakfast with a friend, (Because why not? -- and breakfast is my favourite meal) or a slow wake up. I have never been a morning person so I create for myself a later start. The rest of my day is spent answering emails, creating promotions, designing custom work for brides and business owners and listening to my studio partner (and sister-in-law) hammer away at her amazing jewellery designs-- it's all in the family. The one thing I learned in owning my own business is there is never a time when there is nothing to do. --and it's easy to forget to eat lunch. 


What do you enjoy the most about your business?

That it's mine! Building up something you can call your own and take ownership of is quite satisfying.


What is your dream design project?

OH THERE ARE TOO MANY!

 

What are your top three favorite stores to shop at?

I'm not a big shopper and we don't have the best selection out here, but I enjoy those bookstores with a great knick knack section.


How did you come up with the name, Keeks Paper Co.?

A crazy and dear friend of mine gave me the nickname "Keeks". She was the only one who called me that, and she has since moved to the southern states. But I liked how it sounded. From time to time new clients call me Keeks, it's nice.


What are your hopes for Keeks Paper Co.'s future?

Keep growing and getting my name out there. I would just love for more people to see and love my work. It is the greatest feeling to be able to create things that other people also enjoy. I know maybe not everyone, but at least a few in this wide world.

DIY Recycled Greeting Card Gift Tag Tutorial and Free Printable Template December 03 2014, 1 Comment

stationery subscription box diy

I always use a ton of gift tags and stickers for Christmas gifts, and I always seem to run out of them. Instead of making a last minute run to the store, why not make some of your own? I made mine out of some extra greeting cards, but you can use any type of card stock paper.

For this project you will need the downloadable pdf tag template, a pen or pencil, scissors, one hole punch, bakers twine or other string, reinforcement hole stickers, and recycled greeting cards and/or notecards.

stationery subscription box diy

Just print out a tag template, trace around the template on your card, cut, hole punch, and stick a reinforcement sticker on it! Easy as pie!

The tags I made look more like they are more suited for birthdays and everyday use, but I can imagine some pretty cute tags using those Christmas cards you have stashed away from last year. Remember to save those cards from now on...they can breathe a second life!

Hope you are having as much fun as I am gearing up for the holidays! What is on your crafty to-do list?

FREE Holiday Gift Destination Note Set November 13 2014, 0 Comments

If you are an Instagram or Facebook follower, you may have seen some photos of these cards that I've have been busy working on. I love to travel and was inspired to create some little notecards that feature iconic illustrations of things that make each city so unique. I've created cards for Tokyo, Paris and London, which other cities would you like to see for possible future cards?

As a holiday gift from Pennie Post to you I am giving away a free set of 6 (2 of each design) destination cards and envelopes. These gift sets will be FREE with a Pennie Post purchase of $60 or more through December 15th. If you purchase a gift subscription the free gift will automatically go to the gift subscription recipient unless otherwise noted in your Gift Note box during checkout. If you are already a subscriber and wish to receive this card gift set you can purchase a new subscription and it can be added to your current subscription length, just leave a note in the Gift Note box at checkout.

To redeem the free gift set use code: PPGIFT14 at checkout. It will come up as a $.01 discount, and this is your verification that your free gift has been redeemed.
