Before starting, we recommend you practise using the calligraphy pen a little. Expressive calligraphy works best if you always hold the pen at the same angle. You’ll soon see how easy it is to achieve beautiful curved letterforms.
Now you’re ready to get going: take the white paper and write some hints and tips on how to look after your pot plants, or simply write amusing words or phrases inside a speech bubble. Add some shading and small decorative touches such as dots or stars.
Use the calligraphy pen to draw a frame around each phrase, which you can then embellish before cutting it out. Watch our how-to video for detailed instructions.
Finally, secure each hand lettered label onto a wooden skewer with adhesive tape and insert them in your plant pots.
