Today is another Fashion Friday here at On A Sweet Note! And today we are hosting 3 fantastically chic yet simple hair tutorials from the girls over at The Beauty Department!

We all want our wedding invitations and stationery to look phenomenal! We painstakingly choose just the right design, print it on the best paper and word it with the greatest of care – but what about when it comes time to hand-write names, addresses or warm wishes to your guests? If you’re like me (and have writing that makes people think you should train to be a doctor!), then you’ll be brainstorming of a way to make your writing not only look more legible but also have more style than it does when you write your weekly grocery list. Luckily, we’ve created just what you need to make your writing look fabulous (and fancy!) – the Glass Dip Pen! Learn how to use it and love it with this simple tutorial video that shows you just how easy it is to use. We promise you’ll use it from your wedding invitations, guest book and beyond!
Paper flowers are a hot topic in the wedding world right now! We’ve been seeing them all over, and we bet that you’re just as enthralled with them as we are! From their beautiful shapes to the statement they make, we can’t get enough of the handmade touch that paper blooms bring to a wedding. And, while a lot of tutorials showed women cutting out flower shapes and petals for what must have been hours, we wanted to offer a more time friendly version of the craft so even the time strapped (or novice DIY) bride could create the look with confidence! Hence our Parisian Love Letter Paper Blooms were born!!! And today, we’re showing you just how to make stunning bouquets and a boutonniere with these handy little blooms for that extra special handmade touch on your wedding day. So get your crafty pants on, it’s time to become a wedding DIY diva!

Heck, we even have an adorable Miniature Pie Packaging Kit that will give you everything you need to package your pastries so they’re pretty as a picture! You just need to whip up a few batches of mini pies and today we are showing you how – our designer Tara has even included her secret recipes for you to print!
