Spell Book with Removable Recipe Pages

A few years ago I started a spell book called the "Witches' Enchanted Book of S.P.I.D.E.R.S. (Spells, Potions, Incantations, Divination, Enchantments, Rituals, and Superstitions)" for our family, collecting up all our favorite family and holiday recipes as well as poems, songs and useful info on assorted topics. When I mentioned the book off hand to Connie, she liked the idea. So, I decided to start her a condensed version for her. This was motivated mostly by a need to get our own family books more presentable. I used brown paper bags and Fabri-Tac glue to cover the layered cereal box cardboard cover before painting and staining it.

The pages of the book are inked with permanent marker, colored pencils and a white paint marker. Many but not all of the poems and illustrations are my own creation. As I mentioned before, the pages are removable in the same way many scrapbooks are constructed. DIY Steampunk Goggles On A Dollar Tree Budget - DarrenWasHere.

Magnetic Spice Storage: Weekend Project. Today we wanted to share a cute idea for organizing your kitchen spices. With every new recipe we end up collecting a new spice or two. Having all these options available is perfect for adventurous cooking but it can leave your kitchen cabinets looking cluttered! We decided to make our new spice storage magnetic so it could adhere to the side of a refrigerator, and we found these cute clear containers so you can easily see how much of each spice you have on hand. Here's a before + after comparison. They're easier to store and easier on the eyes! Step 1: Trace your container (we got ours here) onto a sheet of magnetic paper. Make Your Own Canvas Portrait!

Make Your Own Canvas Portrait!

After transferring photos to fabric, I was super excited to try some pieces using stretched canvas. Highlights Scrapbook DIY. I made this scrapbook from recycled materials to celebrate some of the "highlights" of my relationship with Jeremy. I listed out ten things that I love about our life and then used a highlighter pen and cut them into strips for each page. It's the perfect small book for our coffee table at home. Here's a look at each of the inside pages.

I printed out ten photos that I love, they don't necessarily have anything to do with my list of favorite things. The pages are super simple... just a photo, a journaling strip and some washi or masking tape. Here's a look at the front and back of the book, as well as the inside of the last page. Modern Wall Art with Paint Swatches! Looking for a way to fill that blank wall but don't have permission to paint?

Modern Wall Art with Paint Swatches!

All you need is a trip to a major hardware store and an afternoon in front of a good movie to take care of that little dilemma. Supplies Needed: Large frame with paper insert, a ton of pretty paint chips, double-sided tape squares, and vinyl letters appropriate to the size of your frame or phrase (4" - 6"). D.I.Y. Photo Guestbook. Hey there, It's Alec. Im a big fan of taking old books and bringing new life to them through multiple uses. So for this case I chose to make a photo guestbook. Items that I used can be seen here. The Instax Camera definitely works great for this. Film can get a little steep price wise but I am a big fan of the small size and it fits in a book quite well. First thing I did was take the old photo album, peel the pieces of plastic off each page and then cut the pages out a couple at a time.

Next, I ripped out all of the binding in the book and said goodbye to the pages. Following that, take the pages from the old photo album and fold them in half, and then trim them to the size of the book, and in accordance with the look you are going for. After that, take the twine and thread it through each of the holes and knot it, leaving a small amount of play in the tightness. Next, put glue in the middle of your vintage book, and sit the bound album paper firmly on the glue.

[Alec, Thanks so much!
