Sending a card in the mail is an excellent way to show that you care. Making that card yourself is even better. To get schooled in the art of letter writing, sign up for our newest online class. We’ve brought in Liz Maute Cooke, founder of Lionheart Prints, to show us the ins and outs of stationery design.

Sign up now for Intro to Making Your Own Stationery to learn various papercrafting techniques and create custom thank-you notes, postcards, and gift tags to give with birthday presents and brighten your friends’ mailboxes. Who knows, this could be the start of your very own stationery line!


You’ll learn how to paint watercolor notecards, work through dip-dying techniques, create envelope linings and try your hand at heat embossing.

Besides, how often do you get to make notes in class?


Just between us, you can totally save yourself time and money by grabbing our DIY Stationery Kit ($75) for all the supplies you’ll need. Just for a quick comparison, running over to an art store for supplies will cost you about $85. Plus, if you buy the kit with the class, we’ll knock 15% off the price!

Here’s what you’ll find inside:

– Hake White Goat Hair Brush

– Watercolor Brush – Round

– Watercolor Painting Set – 12 Colors

– Watercolor Paper Pad

– X-ACTO Knife

– A2 Soft White Envelopes

– Tape Runner Permanent Applicator

– Stainless Steel Ruler

As you may already know, this class is one of many in which we bring in makers, designers and bloggers to share their tricks of the trade, and hopefully inspire your own creativity. We offer these online classes (succulent gardening, nail art and calligraphy, to name a few) right in our own B+C Shop. Best part is, you’ll be able to download the classes and come back to them whenever you want, so they’re ideal for those of us with busy schedules.
