Magnetic silly putty. DIY - house / such a cute idea! this looks super easy, great for the kids room!! Diy / paper crafts. {Valentines day} pixel-y popup card. I‘ve been scratching my head trying to come up with a card for my hubby {AKA the non-romantic type}.

{Valentines day} pixel-y popup card

I finally decided to make this pixely popup heart card! They are really minimal (which I love) and take about 20 minutes to make (that includes the card, insert and envelope). You can even make some pixely confetti to put inside the card (if you are a big kid like me!). Full instructions and printable templates below! {macramé: square knot} string & hexnut bracelet.

I finally got around to posting after a hectic few weeks. I’ve been working on a big project which is all done and dusted now so I will be making more frequent updates between now and Christmas…phew! I sincerely wish there were more hours in the day! Space crayons. By Kate on March 5, 2012 Hello!

Space crayons

We’ve been struck down by some nasty bugs in the last few weeks so sorry (once again!) For the lack of updates. Last night, I finally managed to peel myself off the sofa(!) And made these galaxy crayons for son #1 (he is currently fascinated with stars and planets). If you, too, are interested in the night sky then did you know you can download high-res images from the hubble site? Popcorn + sprinkles = ♥ By Kate on April 20, 2012.

3D paper diamonds. Hello there.

3D paper diamonds

Hope you all had a great Easter! We had a lovely relaxing holiday (….well as relaxing as it gets with kids). It would have been great to have another week off ^_^ Before I forget I just want to say a big thank you for all the kind messages you have send me regarding my book (you really are a nice bunch!) …and huge thanks to all the people who have bought it so far… I’ve been meaning to get this paper diamond up for weeks now…but it’s taken ages to figure the template out (and I’ve been having breaks between each failed attempt). It’s based on simplified version of Satoshi Kamiya’s origami diamond. These paper diamonds are tricky to make (& require a fair bit of patience) so definitely adults only! Felt pen inks. By Kate on July 26, 2011 Our house is often like a felt-pen graveyard (in spite of persistant nagging)!

Felt pen inks

If you too are the owner of many a dried-up, squished-nib pen then worry not, simply chuck them in a pot of water overnight and make some really lovely liquid inks. (Use about 50ml of water for every felt pen). I’m still trying to figure out what to make with all the plastic cases…ideas on a postcard please! BTW….I’ve seen this idea before of the web, but can’t find the original source. 8-bit popup cards. Hello!

8-bit popup cards

Remember that pixel heart card I made a while back? Well it has been one of my most popular tutorials to date so I thought I would add another few designs to the collection. Meet ‘space-invader popup’ and ‘skull popup': Like the heart card, they are really minimal (which I just love) and easy to make once you have got the hang of it.

Adult/teenage Craft. By Kate on March 11, 2014 Hello!

Adult/teenage Craft

If you want to make a real origami bunny then check out this post at howaboutorange. Are you making anything for Easter?
