DIY SCRAPBOOK PAPER POCKET ENVELOPE. | Gathering Beauty. Hi, just a quick and easy project to share with you today, diy scrapbook paper pocket envelopes. I love sending people snail mail, particularly photos or postcards so I'm always looking for new ways to personalise them and add a handmade touch. These pocket envelopes measure 4.25 inches x 6 inches. I wanted them to be able to hold a standard postcard or 4x6 photograph. You can use them as envelopes or pockets. Store loose notes or photos in them by gluing a couple to the inside of a scrapbook or journal. Things you'll need to make your own Diy Scrapbook Paper Pocket Envelopes: Scrapbook paper, I used the Close Knit and Maggie Holmes range from Crate Paper, Martha Stewart score board and bone folder, paper trimmer, scissors and some double-sided tape.

Embroidery needles come in many different types and picking the ideal one can make your needlework more enjoyable. But how do you know which one you should be using? The basic rule is to pick the finest needle that will accommodate the thread and fabric that you wish to use. One that is too large will create holes in the fabric that the thread does not fill in, one that is too fine will mean that the thread gets rubbed unnecessarily every time the needle goes through the fabric, meaning that it will fray quickly. Needle characteristics The Size Needles are usually sized with the larger numbers being reserved for the thinner needles, a fact which confuses many people. As an example a size 24 tapestry needle (ideal for working on 14 count Aida cloth) is thicker than a size 26, which is used for 28 or 32 count evenweave fabrics.

The Point If you are working on a closely woven fabric, then you need to use a pointed needle. The width The length The eye Different Needle Types Sharps Tapestry Chenille.

Sewing

The Easiest Way to Make Resin Jewelry. We’ve all seen cool resin pendants at jewelry shops, boutiques, and on fashionistas everywhere. And while we know this is something you can do at home, we weren’t totally down with what seemed like a really complicated process. Well, turns out it is easier than we thought… but still has more steps than most of our tutorials. If you’ve always wondered if you could make resin jewelry in the comfort of your home, the answer is yes. You just need a few simple tools, all available on our favorite online craft store, Amazon ;) While you get your “fillers” together, place the resin and hardener bottles in a bowl of hot water.

This helps the resin mix nicely, and helps avoid air bubbles. Be sure to cover your workspace with wax paper – resin does not wash off! We’ve got repurposed jewelry, flowers and twigs found outside, sprinkles (yes, sprinkles!) Use your resin mold to organize your fillers. Now it’s time to mix the resin! Now, it’s time to turn these resin objects into wearable jewelry! Sabby In Suburbia: Homemade Christmas: Pendant Necklaces & Glass Magnets. (Updated 11/8/2012) Welcome new visitors from Pinterest!
