Today we're so excited to welcome the ladies of Eriewood Collective for a very special guest post! Eriewood Collective is a trio of gal pals from all walks of life based in Chicago; Jaclyn is an educator at a zoo, Sher is a Graphic Designer, and Kim works for a trading firm. The girls each bring their unique backgrounds in teaching, design, and crafting to form a cadre of women here to conquer the DIY world! They lead hands-on DIY classes around the city that teach people how to make a variety of projects to use as home decor or to bring a personal touch to a wedding or party. Learn more about their mission to party and craft till they drop here!
The girls are here to share a super cute and simple DIY inspired by that day of love that is so rapidly approaching. No, we're not talking about Valentine's Day. This DIY is all about GALentine's Day!
Hello! Eriewood Collective here to help you celebrate Galentine's Day with a simple DIY to gift your best lady friends (or keep for yourself!) But what's Galentine's Day, you ask? "Oh, it's only the best day of the year. Ladies celebrating ladies. It's like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas." - Leslie Knope, Parks and Recreation.
We created this Pop-up Love Letter to give to our fellow baddy gals! These downloadable templates can be gifted to your main girls as cards, used as wall decor for your home, or hung in your office as a daily reminder of just how awesome you truly are! Personalize them by adding colorful or patterned paper as a background.
