Say hi to Bert, our Teen Club mascot!

Join our Teen Club at Hello Happiness Creativity Center! For 2023 we are offering MONTHLY kits that teens (13-19) can come and pick up for free and take home (or anywhere!) to complete. Each month will feature a different kit that will come with the necessary supplies needed to complete the activity and an instruction sheet, if applicable. The kits are totally free but will be limited and given out on a first-come, first-serve basis.

December's Teen Club Kit

Happy December! We can’t believe it’s already nearing the end of 2023. We hope each and every one of you has a wonderful holiday season, and what better way to share your love and creativity than with a handmade gift? This month’s teen club kit is card-making! Each kit includes four cards and envelopes, and a whole bunch of other crafty ephemera to make some unique holiday cards for your friends and/or family.

Pick up a FREE card-making teen club kit any time we’re open, Tuesday-Friday 10AM-5PM, and Saturday 10AM-3PM.

Teen Club: Projects

There are technically two different “kinds” of kits; Christmas- and winter-themed. We understand that not everyone celebrates Christmas and we wanted to be as inclusive as possible while also using the materials that we have. The winter kits contain the same amount of cards and ephemera as the Christmas kits, but they aren’t explicitly Christmas-themed. If you celebrate another holiday during this time of year, such as Kwanzaa or Hanukkah, we hope that you feel welcome to take one of the winter kits!

Add some texture to your cards by including some ribbon along the edges; add dimension by layering paper with fun patterns. Draw a little doodle with the colored pencil stubbies included in your kit or use a stamp if you’re not feeling like doing any drawing yourself. 

There are so many other fun things you can add to cards: sequins, glitter, pipe cleaners, yarn, paint, stickers, photos, washi tape, brads and grommets, magazine clippings, vintage ephemera, and more! All of which we have at Hello Happiness for affordable prices. When you’re here picking up your free kit, please look around for more inspiration, especially in the paper room and even in the free hall.

We hope that this month’s teen club kit inspires you to write more cards to your friends and family, because how fun is it to receive a personalized letter? It’s also such a nice way to talk to people that you may not see as often. People feel good when they know that you are thinking of them!
