Founded in 2012 by Jessica Alba, The Honest Company is dedicated to empowering people to live happy, healthy lives through their thoughtfully formulated, safe and effective baby, personal care and beauty products. We’re thrilled to announce that The Honest Company has joined the Spoonflower family and has brought some of their top-selling designs—originally featured on diapers and more—into their very own shop in the Spoonflower Marketplace. What’s even greater? We partnered together this spring to give four custom baby shower packages to deserving new moms who are COVID-19 frontline workers. For these parents who were hosting virtual celebrations in trying times, these cheering packages included “Honest” goodies and cute bunting made with Spoonflower’s Peel and Stick Removable Woven wallpaper. Keep reading to learn how to make your own no-sew banner and hear from Jessica Alba herself on why she feels this partnership is the perfect opportunity to celebrate all new moms-to-be.
Jessica: I’ve been a fan of Spoonflower for a while! I created The Honest Company with design top of mind—it’s one of the things we are most well known for—and this partnership takes our shared passion to the next level. I love that you can create custom designs that truly speak to your lifestyle and create a seamless look and feel for your home or a special event. A baby shower is such a special event in parents’ lives, so our whole team loved the chance to celebrate with Honest style and Spoonflower craftiness.
The diaper designs are so important to me—I’m passionate about the whole creative process: concept, treatments, scale, everything. And I look everywhere for inspiration. We embrace everything from pop culture to fashion trends, contemporary graphic design and vintage references. I’m always thinking about how cohesive the storytelling and design is. I work closely with our creative team to design all of our prints in house each season and these 4 designs represent our bestselling OG prints. Whether you’re boho, classic or minimalist, these adorable designs have a real ‘wow’ factor for showers. We use them across gifting must-haves, like our layette, accessories and diaper cakes. We’ve got you covered if you’re having a boy or a girl, or don’t shop by gender at all. I love these designs so much because they speak to modern parents’ unique style and are more sophisticated than your typical diaper designs.
I founded The Honest Company as a community-driven brand empowering people to live happy, healthy lives. Giving back has been part of our DNA since day one and that matters now more than ever. Our safe, effective products are created to give peace of mind for the whole family, especially when you’re pregnant. I knew that there were so many expecting parents on the frontlines that not only had to cancel their baby showers, but also take care of others at a time when it’s critical for them to take care of themselves and their babies. We had to do something to provide support, help lift their spirits and honor all that they’ve done to keep us safe and sound!
Pennant Banner Materials
Step 1: Attach Wallpaper to Card Stock
Cut out all 12 triangles, being careful to follow the lines as your guide. Peel the backing from the woven wallpaper and stick to card stock. Trim excess card stock.
Pro tip: If your card stock is the same size as the wallpaper, you can stick the entire piece down, then cut the triangles out.
Step 2: Grab Your Hole Puncher
Using a sharp hole puncher, punch holes in the left and right corners of the shortest edge of each triangle.
Step 3: Intertwine the Twine
Starting on the design side, lace your twine through the punched holes so that the string lays behind each triangle. You can cut your twine in half to create two pennant banners.
Step 4: Hang Your Masterpiece
Using washi tape or pins, attach each end of the twine to a wall and admire your work! If you keep all 12 triangles on the same string, support the middle with tape or pins.
In the climate of COVID, we’re hosting more virtual celebrations than we could ever have imagined.
