Happy April First! It's an exciting day around here, with two very special announcements. First of all, today is the day my very own personal A Muse Studio webstore goes LIVE! Hooray! You can now officially check out all the awesome A Muse Studio products, as well as shop online* or book a party (locals only, sorry), all day, every day. Check it out: https://www.amusestudio.com/annakeyes (And don't forget the extra E in KeyEs!)
AND, to celebrate my webstore and the official "kick-off" of the all new A Muse Studio, I'm launching a brand-spankin'-new Video Tutorial Series! This is something I'm very excited about, and very proud of. I will be featuring weekly videos (or, at least approximately weekly!) showcasing product introductions/reviews/demos, stamping tutorials, start-to-finish cards, and other fun projects for home decor, gift giving, and holidays. So, without any further ado, let me introduce my very first video tutorial project!
*insert fanfare here* :)
Pencil Flag Cards!
I absolutely love these and I have to say I'm so proud of this idea! These are little flag shaped cards that you tuck a pencil into - Perfection for any birthday or party favor! AND, they make super cute party decorations before you give them all away! Gotta love the double-duty! :) I also think these would be an adorable whole-class treat for your kids' friends. (Got one of those evil teachers who insists on a sugar-free Valentine's Day? Nobody will even notice with a treat this fun!) AND, if that wasn't enough, there's plenty of room on the inside to write a special message.
Here's a close-up of the green flag.
And here's the video!

* A word about online ordering: If you're going to order more than $150 worth of yummies, then be sure to contact me first, because you'll be eligible for Hostess Benefits, but you can only get them if I place the order for you!
