Giant Paper Peony DIY

Craft the perfect Initiation decoration

This giant, paper peony is seriously easy to make! Our design team has racked up more than a few “Pinterest Fails”, but we had no trouble putting this one together. Get together with a big group of your sorority sisters and make 10 of these beauties to use as Initiation decoration. They would look absolutely amazing attached to an archway like the example shown below. Use softer colors like we did and have the new members stand underneath it to take their Initiation Photos!



– A LOT of tissue paper of varying colors and or patterns
– Clear tape
– Hot glue gun
– Some sharp scissors (seriously, we tried with dull ones and failed)

Step 1:


Gather all of your materials on a large table. Fold all of your tissue paper into an accordion shape, as shown. Use hot glue or tape to bind it right in the middle of the accordian.

Step 2:


Cut the ends of both sides to be rounded. Gently pull up on the top layer, it will start to sort of look like a blooming flower.

Step 3:


Continue gently pulling up layer after layer, pulling them toward the center. Fan the sides out as you go, to help it form more of a circular shape.

Step 4:


Keep gently pulling the “petals” upward. Check out how much you have left and try to balance the fluffiness. If you have a ton of tissue paper left, start making the layers closer together.



Fluff it up a little more and you’re good to go!

3 ways to use sorority experience to land your dream job

One of my biggest concerns when joining a sorority was that committing a large amount of my time to the sorority would keep me from doing other activities that would be more beneficial to my future career. I wondered if eating all of my meals at the sorority house would keep me from important networking around campus and I worried that future employers would not see my time in a sorority as a benefit.

I was wrong to worry. I currently work as the Brand Identity Developer for Greek Streak and use my sorority experience and knowledge every single day. I remember freezing up in the interview when they asked me if I had any knowledge of Greek Life. Luckily, I responded yes, I was a member of Chi Omega in college, and I went on to explain all of the ways that my time in Chi Omega helped me to learn valuable skills that can easily be applied to a career.

Not everyone will be as lucky as I was to find a career in an industry that caters to sorority and fraternity members, but you can still follow the three easy guidelines below to assure that you can apply your sorority or fraternity experience to your future career.

1.  Take on Leadership Roles in your Sorority
Improve your resume while you’re still in college by taking on leadership roles within your sorority or fraternity. You can list these roles on your resume and bring them up in your interview. If you were president, for example, you tell your future employer about the leadership skills you built and the ways in which you learned to lead others and make important decisions.

2. Add Your Greek Experience to your Resume
As I mentioned before, you can add your sorority or fraternity experience to your resume! You learned valuable skills that can be applied to the workplace. Create a “Volunteer Work” category and list your philanthropy involvement along with any other volunteer work you did in college. This shows employers that you are able to balance your time well, work well with others and it shows that you care about your community and the well-being of others. You should also list any leadership positions or major responsibilities that you took on in your sorority/fraternity.

3. Network Within Your Organization
Your sorority or fraternity can be a huge asset when it comes to networking and searching for a job. Join your organization’s alumni association and start connecting with other alumni in your chosen career field. They will likely be able to offer you guidance and maybe even a job! Many Greek organizations  have LinkedIn groups that you can join and chat within also. Networking is everything when it comes to securing a job in this market, so take advantage of what is likely the largest network of people you have ever been involved with.

Best of luck on your job hunt!

4. Create posters with this saying, maybe try putting your sorority name at the bottom in cursive with glitter so it stands out. Then use silver jewelry, teal shirts with white converse and bows to complete the look for your Bid Day!6264757b5d03eb9682486a5f5b3022ba

5.What better way to show your spirit then with the American Dream? How could this not excite you into joining? Everyone is always chasing the American Dream and now you get to live it! Red, White, and Blue clothing and bows what more could you ask for?


6. Bows, on bows, on bows! What better way to bring your bids into the family then by tying your bond together with bows?! For the banner I’d try making one big bow and hanging it diagonally off the blue banner with the saying and name.


7. Nothings better then a little southern charm and tea. Welcome your bids in with class and sass! Coral shirts, yellow Jack Rodgers, pearls and floppy hats, who wouldn’t want to be seen at that party?


8. Loving the sea? Anchor yourself to something special for your Bid Day! Matching aqua/blue shirts to white jeans, blue shoes and gold anchor jewelry will surely make sure all your bids know their hooked on something special!

11. Want to show the best on Bid Day?  Sun shine, Home, and Crazy Good Girls will tell everyone what life will be like as long as their with you!  Gold jewelry, blue shirts, and pink shoes will start up this party after reading the banner!


12. Remember the movie Le Lo and Stitch?  Well mixing this famous saying in with your sorority will show the meaning of what a Bid with you means! Dressing with Hawaiian skirts and pink shirts and flowers will tie everything together!


13. Child hood classics are always the best Bid Day themes and Banners! Try using the little mermaid quotes, the Jungle Book, Finding Nemo, or any others that you can think of!


14. Don’t want to use a movie theme for your Bid Day? Try using popular song lyrics for your banners such as 99 problems! For this song you could wear black tees with the saying on the back, white bows, and jean shorts.


15.Who doesn’t like to win?! Cleaver way of mixing your sorority letters into a saying.  This banner would be perfectly matched with a red tee shirt with this on the front, black sunglasses and white converses!


16. Want to try something new and all your own for Bid Day? Try using a play on words. So ROAR ity is a fun way to grab attention and mix it with a lion theme!



17. With Cow girl boots on your feet and hats on your head all you’ll need is a catchy country song lyric mixed in with your sorority name for your Bid Day banner and shirts. 2fa7d9fa9544198702609980d8b7110a

18. Throwing it back to Greece the movie, You’re the one that we want, is the perfect Bid Day theme! Pink chevron pattern with black letters will grab everyone’s attention from the street.


19. Bid Day theme, Alice and Wonderland, has been very popular. There are so many cute quotes from the movie that you can put on your banner for Bid Day! For this one you could make tea cup hats, wear gold jewelry, blue shirts and red vans.


20. Sweets? Yum! The sweetest girls get the sweetest treats! So why not make your banner with some of your favorite deserts and show case the sweet life to your new Bids?!


21. Want a more traditional Bid Day theme? Baseball, a classic American sport fits the Bid Day theme perfectly! White converses, red shirts, blue jeans and white bows will bring life to your banner and your house.


22. Don’t sail off without your sisters! This them can be done in any two colors you want and would be easy to make with simple shapes building the boat and a bright colored background!


23. XOXO Gossip Girl, you know you love us. A simple black background and white writing with pink xoxo on it and a big lipstick mark will draw plenty of attention on Bid Day. Wear pink shirts, white shoes, and a lipstick mark on your cheek with black shorts.

Great Greek Houses

Here is a list of some of the most beautiful sorority houses on college campuses today:

>Kappa Kappa Gamma at University of Arkansas: “The house has previously undergone expansions and renovations, with the last one occurring (2 years ago).  Now, at 41,000 square feet, it’s got to be among the largest in the country, if not the largest.”
