  • Watercolor Paper
  • Envelopes
  • Watercolor Paint + Brushes
  • Brush Pen, Sharpie, Pencil


  • Cut down your watercolor paper to 5×7 so it’ll fit nicely into your envelope!
  • Using your pencil, sketch out some simple flowers and blooms.
  • Grab your brush and start painting! Painting tip: Use less water for thicker pigmented layers of paint. Let dry in between layers before adding details.
  • Use your pencil to sketch out what you want to write on your card and, using your pen of choice, write it out! (We used a Tombow pen + Sharpie for that faux calligraphy vibe!)
  • Slip your finished card into the envelope, seal and send with love!


Pei Sim Besides being the owner of The Paper + Craft Pantry, Pei is an avid DIYer and crafter. She started The Paper + Craft Pantry to blend two of her favorite things, stationery and workshops!

Pei started out in the small business world almost 4 years ago as the designer and maker behind a small stationery brand in Houston, Texas. As she grew her business, she was able to identify that what she loved most about her business were all the people and fellow small businesses she got to work with.

With that intention in mind, she opened The Paper + Craft Pantry with the integrity to stock the shelves with quality and independently designed paper goods, and chooses to invite in only the very best instructors, who all also own their own businesses. She is also the editor of The Paper + Craft Pantry’s blog which focuses on DIY projects and The Small Business School series!

When not in the studio, Pei enjoys exploring Austin through its food scene, which she balances out with her love for working out at local fitness studios.

She loves running (cue jogging stroller), taste-testing pizza and burgers, and working on the next great American novel. Her latest homage to all things literary?
