I posted about my obsession for Double Cuffs last week, and while walking through the baking section (an area of the store I rarely frequent) I spotted these cookie cutters. At $2 a pack, I grabbed two and headed home to start DIYing. I must say, I love that ah-ha moment when I find the perfect supplies to recreate a look I've been lusting after for a fraction of the price.

Posted by Cathy on Sunday, May 6, 2012 · 7 Comments There’s no doubt about it, I’m a jewelry person. The bigger the better! And what I really like are loads and loads of bracelets. This DIY tutorial is a great way to reuse the beads from old necklaces or any odd beads you have lying around from other projects.
There’s no question, we love the feather hair clip trend . It’s a great way to add a unique touch to a simple outfit and they are perfect accessories for summer festivals (like Outside Lands this weekend!). I love the elegant and intricate ones I’ve been seeing around the web, and for today’s DIY project our Roosevelt field MIT, Kristina, shows you how to make your own feather hair clip!
Did you know...that you can make new earrings with a button and a paperclip? True story! I've been trying to think of a way for us to make some earrings without having to buy supplies. Buying the beads and all the findings can really add up. :o( Sad. But-oh, what?
Posted by Cathy on Wednesday, March 28, 2012 · 7 Comments When I first saw this braided hex nut bracelet on Pinterest and I knew I had to make one. It’s a quick and easy project to make for less than $5 and looks great stacked with all your other bracelets. To see step by step instructions and photos click here. String Hex Nuts (I used 18) Step 1 Cut 3 pieces of your string approximately 16 inches long (depending on the size of your wrist) and tie them together in a knot.
Tools and Materials Appliques Nail glue, optional Locket Sandpaper Paper towel Colored nail polish Tweezers Toothpick, optional Nail-polish remover, optional Cotton swab, optional Charming Locket How-To 1. Lay out your appliques in the design you want to create, since you do not want to move the items on the polish once you put them down. If you want to add appliques on top of others (such as a rhinestone in the center of a flower), use nail glue to stick them on before you start.

There's a flat rate of USD10 for any orders so I'm looking for anyone who wants to order any pretty bracelets for themselves or as a gift!
The other day I was playing around with some different chains and ribbon I had in my craft supplies and presto, here’s what came out. Originally my thoughts were to add another element to this. However, my mom stopped and when she saw this piece, she said she thought it was pretty as is and didn’t think it needed anything more. So…since I realized many years ago to always take my mother’s advice, I opted to show it to you as is. Here’s what you’ll need:
I love flower crowns. The only thing I don't like about flower crowns is how they get all wilted by the end of the day. Solution? Faux flower crown.
Stamped Resin Bangle for CraftsUnleashed.com So, my “Stamped Resin Bangles” went up on CraftsUnleashed.com yesterday, and I was pretty pleased with the results. It’s a stamped-and-painted paper strip that’s then decoupaged into the resin form that comes from ConsumerCrafts.com .Â (See the full tutorial HERE .) Of course, when you are designing crafts for an international craft-supply company, you use only what they carry, right?
I have always been obsessed with watches, clocks, and gears, so when "steampunk" jewelry started to come into style, I was enthralled. I had found a small package of these thin gear shaped metal pieces at Michael's and just had to have them. They sat in one of my craft supplies boxes for a few months while I thought long and hard about what to do with them. I bought some actual watch gears as well and added them to my box.
these bracelets are easy, fast to make ...and just lovely I made these with silky satin ropes, but sure the possibilities are endless: cords of leather, cotton, jute, and ribbons, beads... and more. * scissors & fabric glue
I found these large vintage rhinestone earrings on Ebay for under $5, but I'm 100% sure my local thrift shops have a nice little collection and yours would too. I bet you could also find some in your Grandma's jewelry box, if she'll part with them! Since they're clip-ons, and clip-ons never seem to say clipped on to my little lobes, I thought I'd upcycle them in a number of ways to show you just how versatile they are as well as adding that extra something to brighten up a plain object, giving it a really unique vintage flair. * Beading Pliers * Wire cutters * Hot glue gun
We’re nuts for nuts. Is there a more versatile and inexpensive DIY component than a hex nut from the hardware store? You can imagine our excitement when we first discovered Philip Crangi’s Giles & Brother Hex Collection . Honestly, nuts braided into jewelry is WTF genius!
