Exercise Finder, health - - Page 2. Magazine Holders Out of Cereal Boxes. I have magazines, kid’s school papers, coloring books, medical forms, and other papers all over my house.

Magazine Holders Out of Cereal Boxes

I found a way to organize almost anything with a simple DIY home decor project that turns cereal boxes into magazine holders. Now, for just a few bucks and about an hour, I can repurpose old cereal boxes by adding some fun paper. This idea was originally shared with our readers by Brittany. Today, Emily has updated it with new pictures and tips to make your DIY magazine holder crafting process even easier. Essentially this project is just a little cutting, gluing, and folding.

Scrapbook Paper Tip: Darker colors work better for hiding the cereal box. Adjustable Knot Leather Bracelet. One of my Alt Summit friends recently posted about how to make an adjustable knot, you know, the ones that you use when making friendship bracelets.

It got my wheels turning and I put a few scraps to good use. Right now, layering 2-20 bracelets couldn’t be more popular. I’ve found myself doing this quite a bit. I’m not one to sport a ton of bracelets, mostly because they get in the way as I type and work on art projects. These leather bracelets are so low profile, I don’t notice them much at all.

How to Make Paper Pencils (tutorial) I have always wanted to make my own pencils, but the thought of shaping two pieces of wood to allow a piece of lead to sit perfectly inside made me think it wasn’t worth the effort.

How to Make Paper Pencils (tutorial)

For some reason I was looking at some pieces of lead I have (for a drafting pencil) and “pop” there it was.. a solution to my DIY longing. Here is a tutorial to make pencils that is so ridiculously easy I’ve made 10 pencils since the idea came to me yesterday! Silk-dyed eggs. This easter, forgo the candy-colored tablets and vinegar for dyeing eggs with silk neckties.

Silk-dyed eggs

You can always find silk ties at the thriftstore (or maybe this is your chance to free the men in your life from any outdated neckwear). Dyeing eggs with neckties is one of my favorite seasonal projects because it incorporates green-crafting practices and, since you never know which ties will make the prettiest eggs, there’s a delightful mystery to it all. My best friend’s aunt showed us this when we were kids. I remember the first time I unwrapped my tie-wrapped egg…MAGIC!!! They’re still so fun to unwrap. Clean Eating Zucchini Chips. Both of my kids are fruit lovers.

Getting them to eat their veggies can be a struggle. So I wasn’t holding out much hope when I gave them some “superhero and princess chips” that would give them special powers! They ate them all up!

Happy girls are the prettiest - 165-171/365

День сто шестьдесят пятый, 23 января.Я когда-то собирала маленькие туфельки и башмачки, мне их дарили в огромных количествах.А потом перестала. Но некоторые всё ещё дарят :) Теперь я вялотекуще собираю только подставки под пиво, у меня их уже больше 300 штук. День сто шестьдесят шестой, 24 января.В гости приходили мои подруги alebar и gingerkitty. День сто шестьдесят седьмой, 25 января.Волнений, важных совещаний, общений день. День сто шестьдесят восьмой, 26 января.Начала заниматься английским на работе, в этот раз даже понравилось, раскачиваюсь. День сто шестьдесят девятый, 27 января.По фотографиям выше и не скажешь, но я кошмарно устала за неделю. День сто семидесятый, 28 января.Не всё спокойно в нашем королевстве.Не так, как в Кронштадте, куда мы скатались в субботу с подачи lyannna, которая напомнила о близлежащем городке.Было -20, мы поездили посмотрели достопримечательности.

Вот, немного грустная мозаика. Блокноты ручной работы Buntmal, фотографии и мысли - Macarons. Etsy Russian Team. Today, we'd like to introduce our team member Aleksa who runs CitrusCat shop on Etsy. - Please tell us a little bit about yourself What can I tell about myself?
