DIY Paper plants. I’ve been wanting to create some paper plants for my house for ages now.

DIY Paper plants

You see, as much as I try and green thumb my way into cultivating gorgeous indoor plants, they just don’t feel the same way about me and I’m left with a botanical cemetary. It’s tragic really. So, I decided that the best alternative would be to create them myself with plants that don’t rely on constant watering and fertilizer. Enter ASTROBRIGHTS® Papers. They asked me to come up with a project using their gorgeous papers and I knew it was the perfect opportunity to create my paper garden especially with their line of super colorful papers.

Since we are dealing 3D-model here, it might be very hard for you to go with 3D origami rose initially. There ar many sites giving directions for 2D-models . If you ar confident with 2D-models, then you can start with "Easy Origami Roses" here. They are gentle compared to other intermediate/advanced examples but you might find them to be difficult since they are 1 dimension high than 2D-models.

100% recycled & upcycled

If you like recycled, repurposed things that are kind of minimal, keep reading! What happened is that Tuesday is recycle night here in my street.And, as usual, I completely forgot about it, until Wednesday morning, which was obviously too late. My entry looked this way ... pretty ugly. Considering also that we'll have guests over the week end. Put together the fact that I wanted to reduce this pile of boxes, and the fact that I love things made out of cardboard, means some craft action to me! * Grab your boxes * and empty can * a stone +/- the size of the can (gravel works too) * some scissors * a marker * glue --> let's upcycle now :) * cut the template of the vase (if you click on the picture should be the right size) * with a can opener, take off the top of the can (you can wash the can too) * place the top of the can in the middle of the vase template toward the top * place the stone under the can * mark a slot wide enough to fit the can and the stone xox, d.

How To…Make Your Own Paper Flowers

I can totally imagine a big old bunch of these sat next to me on my desk. So so pretty! And what a great use for all those pages and pages of magazine adverts? Let’s save the trees people. Enjoy! What you need: ♥ Shredding Scissors ♥ Masking or sticky tape ♥ Floral tape ♥ Wooden BBQ skewers ♥ Magazines 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Depending on the colour of the advert you can make different bunches and then pop them in a container of your choice, in true recycling fashion I used food cans here covered in another advert.

How to Make a Paper Wreath - Dahlia Inspired {Under $10 to Make!} The weather is soaring into the 60’s this week and it is giving me the itch to get our house ready for Spring.

How to Make a Paper Wreath - Dahlia Inspired {Under $10 to Make!}

The first change in our house is with the mantel, it was decorated top to bottom for Valentine’s Day and screamed winter. Some of the changes that I will be making are; adding a new wreath, making a sign and decorating a few fun vases to fill with beautiful spring flowers. My theme this year is yellow, grey and white. I love this combination and it’s definitely one that can take you from Spring into Summer. We are on a budget for this project and I am planning to do this entire mantel makeover for under $50. What you need: Yellow, white and grey construction paper.

We had pizza for dinner so I became resourceful and cut off the top of the box to use for my wreath. Using a compass, draw a 10 inch diameter circle and cut it out. Then take your yellow and white construction paper and cut them into 4 x 4 squares, on my wreath I used about 70 yellow, 30 white and about 11 grey.
