How about a Christmas tree full of Mad Hatter Hats Or perhaps a few Mad Hatter lovelies put out on display. (these great little stands are made by my hubby from Styrofoam) Here's what you need to make your own Mad Hatter Hats:
1 . Select the pieces of paper to be recycled.
Here's another DIY project from our sweet friend, Sasha - from the The Gilded Bee .
I find myself writing things down for people all the time - web addresses, directions, the name of a glue, the name of a bar, etc. I always carry my Moleskine with me but there's no way I'm going to tear pages out of that! These notebooks are a great alternative - they sew up fast, they're the same size as a business/calling card, and the pages stay in place better than in a spiral notebook but they tear out easily when you need them to. Supplies and Equipment: - paper - one sheet of paper is enough pages for one notebook - cardstock/heavy paper - one sheet is enough to cover 6 notebooks - ruler - clear is easier to work with - very sharp blade - string - this is 2 ply nylon cord - needle - drill/dremel with small bit OR sharp needle OR tiny hole punch Cut the paper into 2 inch strips the long way.

By Ann Martin Quilling, the coiling and shaping of narrow paper strips to create a design, has been around for years — hundreds, in fact. During the Renaissance, nuns and monks would roll gold-gilded paper remnants trimmed during the bookmaking process, and use them to decorate religious objects as an alternative to costly gold filigree. Quilling later became a pastime of 18th and 19th century young ladies in England, who would decorate tea caddies and pieces of furniture with paper filigree.
I was in need of a star to top a rolled paper Christmas tree I am working on, so to be all matchy matchy, I made it out of paper.
Table centerpieces have always eluded me.
Oooh, all the nifty and thrifty things you can create from old newspaper!
Christmas 2005 was the holiday of the "book stuff". I churned out book clocks (something I'll post about one day) and what I called "book-Its" by the dozen, both as gifts and to make a little extra cash. Turns out those book-Its started to show a little wear towards the end of 2011 and a few friends have asked for another one... because it's their "go to" bookmark. Since I'm making them anyway, here's a little how to. They could not be simpler to make! So here goes ...
Looking for a way to fill that blank wall but don't have permission to paint?
Amanda, of Indie Jane , and I have been dreaming up extra pretty projects for you this coming season.
As promised, here is a tutorial on making your own envelopes for stationery sets. While this template makes a rectangular envelope, you could certainly modify it to make squares as well, and as usual this image is scalable (the actual jpg is quite small, I printed it at 250% to make the cute envelopes shown in the tutorial--I just like cutesy small stuff, my original envelopes were much larger).
