Can’t seem to find stationery that reflect your personal style? DIY it and create something that’s right up your alley! From notebook covers to greeting cards and more, play around with different mediums to help you start off your year with a personal DIY touch.
Did you know that vegetable scraps make the most beautifully-unique patterns? Simply cut off the stem-end and wait for it to dry out. If the stem is too wet it might dilute your ink or paint medium. Rather keep your designs sharp and crisp by blotting the veg on a paper towel after each use.
Other great veggie alternatives are romaine lettuce stems or Brussel sprouts cut in half. Click here for the full tutorial.
