Engagement 101 Magazine: The DIY & Crafty Type of Girl

theyesgirls mag4 Yesterday we shared The Yes Girls do-it-yourself ideas in Engagement 101 magazine and today we are sharing the detailed shots and projects perfect for popping the question or even a surprise anniversary gift! DIYing is so popular right now (no duh, right?) and so many girls have their own craft areas and home offices which it can be the perfect lead into a surprise proposal.

The inspiration behind this DIY project is actually in honor of all those crafty, thoughtful, DIY ladies. Guys, simply replace her current project(s), with one of your own! Scatter a few love nows across her desk and spruce it up with beautiful flowers and you my friend got yourself a creative set up!

How To Design a Canvas Puzzle:

1. Pick up blank canvas, velcro circles, paint and a magazine.

2. Paint the canvas her favorite color.

3. Paint letters onto the canvas but select 7-9 letters to leave off so the message isn’t complete.

4. Cut out the specific letters you need to complete the message from the magazine.

5. Stick velcro ont he back of each cutout letter

6. Stick velcro on the canvas where every letter needs to be placed to complete the message.

7. DIY Canvas Puzzle is now ready to be pieced together.

While I was in school at Saint Mary’s College of CA, I had the pleasure of being introduced to The Yes Girls Events & I immediately knew it was something I wanted to be a part of! I loved that they were helping men bring their special question to life. After graduation, I finally had the opportunity to become a “Yes Girl”. I couldn’t ask for a more exciting job & I’m so blessed to be a part of this company.
