It could take a professional calligrapher years to hone their art. But our "faux-ligraphy" video series offers a shorthand approach: In our first video, we learned how to draw each expressive letter, and in our second segment, we added pretty flourishes. Now it's time to take our newfound hand lettering skills and apply them to more than just cards.

In this third video of our series, hand-letterer Bethany Robertson shows how to jazz up anything using hand-drawn letters: a party invitation, a DIY project that could use some extra "oomph," and a plain gift box are all fair game. The world is your canvas, and hand lettering lets you make your mark.
