IDEAS TO ADD SOME SASS TO YOUR GIFTS

Each Mother's Day, we as daughters (and sons!) we look for something a little special for our mums - which can easily turn into something short of a nightmare! But if you’re looking for anything handmade/ homemade to give to your loved one we have an idea for you.
If you’re buying a gift and thinking of adding your own unique twist, attach a hand lettered gift tag or note to your gift and while you’ve got your pen in hand - we have a Mother's Day hand lettered envelope template for you to try your hand at! Perfect for writing you own cards and adding your personal touch to your gifts. Our mum does a fair bit of calligraphy so we’ll be upping our game this year!
HANDLETTERED GIFT TAG
Whether it’s an inside joke or a heartfelt message - lettering up your message with either a dip pen or brush pen can make it all the more memorable, add a splash of colour to make your lettering pop too with a shadow or blending with your brush pens.
Whether formal or more laid back - envelopes are keepsakes, especially in gold metallic ink! Use an Edding fibre tip pen to add some shine to your envelope or white ink on dark card provides that contrast we all love!
WORKSHOP GIFT VOUCHERS
Try out these lettering designs for your hand lettered gift tag or envelope and if you fancy trying your hand at lettering yourself either for the first time or to get back into it - join us at one of our Modern Calligraphy and Brush Lettering workshop to learn the basic fundamentals of hand lettering and add a bit of sass to your designs and bring along your mum too!
