DIY Paper Pinwheel TutorialPosted in: In the Treehouse Blog on Friday, July 26th, 2013
Lsst week, we were fortunate to have another lovely work experience student with us – Katya from year 10 at Tavistock College. While on her week’s placement in our studio, she worked on many tasks including an upcylcing furniture project, lots of photoshop work learning how we personalise our wedding stationery orders, lots of wrapping and preparing packages for the Treehouse Post, as well as this little crafty tutorial. Here, Katya shows us how to create a paper pinwheel, step by step through photographs. Pinwheels are a great and cost effective party/wedding decoration, which have a high visual impact, can be created in any colour/pattern to match your theme, and most importantly, are easy to make:

Leanne’s Baby Shower…Posted in: In the Treehouse Blog on Monday, November 12th, 2012
We recently threw a surprise baby shower for Leanne in our studio – it was a really special occasion for us all to celebrate her own journey into motherhood and of course, the little tiny she was busy growing! (Incidentally, the beautiful Pearl was born last week – hooray!) At the time, we had no idea if baby would be a boy or girl, so I opted for a bright, gender-neutral theme for the shower, centred around rubber ducks… Have a peek at these photos, hopefully full of cute celebration inspiration, easy peasy DIY decoration ideas and best of all, FREE PRINTABLES…
(above left) Baby Shower Invitations (£1.75) – I also made cute little fabric pouches for them in this lovely rubber duck print – unfortunately these are only limited edition and not for sale in large quantities.
(above right), Leanne, beautiful mum-to-be!
(above left): like ‘pin the tail on the donkey’, only think babies and boobies!
(above right): DIY embroidery ring decorations which can be used in baby’s nursery after the shower…

Jam Jars – the budget’s best friend..Posted in: In the Treehouse Blog on Sunday, October 21st, 2012
Hope everyone’s had a wonderful weekend… Mine (Jenny’s) has been super busy, my 3 year old girl’s first ice skating trip with her dad (accompanied by my spectator’s nervous breakdown), trips to the park, a film at the cinema this morning and a lovely afternoon with friends. All the while, I am checking my phone regularly for Matt (the Treehouse Keeper’s) eventual text to say that Leanne might be in labour – she’s due on Friday next week so we’re all very excited as you can imagine…
Anyway, I digress! Today, a little jam jar shaped inspiration for you… If you’re a Bride on a budget, jam jars may well be your new best friend!

Let’s walk this world together… cute ideas with maps.Posted in: In the Treehouse Blog on Wednesday, September 12th, 2012
Regular readers may know, we love maps. You’ve seen our studio ceiling right? I think that as we get more in tune with our iPhones, sat navs and all those gizmos, the good old fashioned paper map becomes more and more obsolete. There’s just something about the old ones though – they’ve been on many a journey, guided people to their destinations, returned home scruffy and worn out but full of adventure. Here are few little ideas of cute little ways you could incorporate them back into your wedding/home/party…
If you’d like to see where I found these lovely images – many of which come with a DIY tutorial, please click these links: Paper Planes / Fan decorations / Map Pine Cone / Letters / Pegs / Bunting / Pinwheel / Confetti / Favour Boxes
Hope you like these little ideas. To see many more of our own DIY tutorials, please click here. If travel is playing a big part in your wedding, perhaps our airmail stationery range would be just the ticket.
Speak again soon,
Jenny & the team..
Woodland wonderland…Posted in: In the Treehouse Blog on Tuesday, September 11th, 2012
We are currently loving the whimsical, woodland trend in weddings at the moment. Gemma, a lovely Bride contacted us and asked us to design some wedding invitations for her & Marc’s woodland inspired wedding with some coral colour accents. This is the magic we made together:
I hope this love story makes you feel as warm and fuzzy inside as it does me. Honestly now girls, how many of us would eat a pickled egg, even in the name of romance? Hats off to you Gemma…
We created this little mood board to set the scene of woodland inspired decor a little:
To see where I sourced these images, please click on the links: DIY Table Plan / Table in the woods / Florals in the crate / Tablescape / Escort Cards / Button Hole / ‘Bride’ place card tag – that’s our very own!
So, not only do we have a new design & an inspiration board for you – but also a DIY project we’ve put together which we hope you’ll enjoy & find useful – especially those of you Brides on a budget…

New Design, Free Printable & a DIY Decoration Tutorial!Posted in: In the Treehouse Blog on Friday, August 3rd, 2012
Hello! Happy Friday everyone! I know my blogging has become slightly less frequent, but today I’m hoping to make up for this by sending a lovely new design, a matching Free Printable AND a DIY tutorial into the ether!
Above – a preview from a new Wedding Stationery collection entitled ‘Motown’ – it’s a little bit fun, colourful and 1950s inspired which we hope you’ll like.
I have also designed these table numbers to match (for the wedding reception) in a similar theme which are now in our Free Printables Library
If you’d like to join our Free Printables Library – you must be either a ‘liker’ of our Facebook page or a client – please email us at email@example.com with the subject Free Printables Library and we’ll invite you along.
Emily, our work experience student turned summer helper has been busy making this cute fabric pom pom and putting a little tutorial together for you (inc. the graphics & photoshop work)… Hope you like it! We think it would look great with our new ‘Motown’ wedding stationery collection! Choose any fabrics to suit you / your big day, but we would suggest to avoid large print patterns which may not show up so well once they’ve been frilled to bits!
If you try this or any of our other DIY projects at home, we’d love to hear how you get on! Happy making!
