10 DIYS to Make for your Galentine

10 DIYS to make for your Galentine! Hoes before bros. Uteruses before duderuses. Ovaries before brovaries. Who knew a TV show would start one of my favorite holidays, but boy did they ever! Galentine’s day is not only a great reason to get together with your friends for brunch, but it’s the perfect excuse to tell the special women in your life how awesome they really are.

And of course, no celebration would be complete without the handmade thoughtful gift (though you don’t have to hand-stitch pillows with the newspaper headline from your friend’s birthday). Here are ten diys you’ll actually want to make for your favorite gal pals this Galentine’s Day:

1. On wax paper, roll out our clay, making sure the surface is smooth and level.

2. Use your cookie cutter to make the heart shape. Remove excess and set aside. You can use the scraps later to make marbled hearts.

3. Load your stamp tool (it will be a reverse image), then stamp one line at a time, for example, I stamped the word ‘girl’ first in all the hearts before moving on to ‘boss’.

4. Bake at 275°F for 15 minutes. Let cool and attach to your gifts with super tape, glue dots, hot glue, etc. You can also punch a hole in the hearts before baking if you’d rather string them onto your packages.
