Tutorials. Making coil baskets has been on my do list for a couple of years and recently I finally took some time to have a little fun putting own twist on this process!


You can make a coil basket out any thick rope or twine, you can even use scraps of fabric wrapped around the rope for something really colorful. But I decide to keep it simple and use rope (out of everything I tried I liked using cloth line the best). To begin, coil the rope. Using a machine, zig zag stitch the coil together and keep coiling and stitching. I spend lots of time sewing heavy duty and non-traditional materials on my machine- I typically use a denim needle for these kinds of projects. Once you have the base of the basket you can create the sides by tilting the coiled rope as up as you sew. Continue sewing until the basket is desired size...SO EASY!! 4 Ways to Make Paper Flowers with Jeffery Rudell.

Recycling never looked so good. Jeff Rudell Weaving newspapers is a perfect activity for kids who are stuck inside on a rainy May Sunday (and it works with adults, too). A simple ribbon or two can turn even the most modest of materials—in this case an old newspaper—into a thing of beauty. Photo: Jeff Rudell The entire 126-year-old farmhouse I grew up in was insulated with old newspapers, wadded up and stuffed behind the walls and between the studs.

With such a long history with newspapers, it struck me as odd recently to realize that most of what I did with newspapers these days (besides read them) was bundle them up and deliver them to the curb once a week in anticipation of the 6:00 a.m. recycling truck that comes every Monday to retrieve them.

I may not be finished yet (I'll explain in a minute) but I want to move on to other ideas so I decided to post about it now. I certainly didn't reinvent the wheel with this one but it was something fun and super easy to make. Materials:- a magazine (I didn't use more than half of a magazine)- glue gun I started by making a tight little roll and making the flat circle that I showed you the other day. This can also make a useful trivet if you continue the flat shape to the desired size. Each strip that I used is made from one page of the magazine. I added each strip to my piece by keeping the folded edge outside and the open side toward the inside. As you place each strip down only do so a short piece at a time because the glue dries really fast. Green Crafting Gift Wrap Bow.

Welcome to Gem's Cottage! Papier à imprimer - printable. Card Making- Cartes. Origami. Iris folding. Tutorials. Tutorials. Fabrications en papier. Tutorials. Collages. In this tutorial we will learn how to make a mixed media collage.


Things we will need: 1. Acrylic paints (or other paints of your choice). 2. Some brushes. 3. Golden Gel Mediums (you don’t have to use this particular brand, but I find it to be better than other mediums on the market). 4. Before I do anything, I usually paint my surface. Don’t try to be perfect. From looking at it I eliminate a few things. I applied the picture of a crying girl. I glued on a couple of more pieces. And some more.

Before we continue, I will show you how to transfer images onto other surfaces. Flip the image over with the ink side down (you should have the gel medium on the ink side) and press into the fabric. Wait until everything is completely dry. Use more water if necessary. When I dipped the fabric into the dish, I rubbed it against the bottom of the plate to get some red on the fabric.
