Scrapbooking / Paper
Japanese Kusudama , this tutorial is featured on Craftuts Anyone can do that, I assure you. The proof: I can, just take a quick look at my result below.
If you’d like to make these cute little “Flap Lock” Origami Envelopes–all you’ll need is a piece of square paper…any size. I used Christmas scrapbook paper. 1. Fold the paper in half to form a triangle. Make sure your edges are even. 2.
The sight of these classy chocolate roses got me into a serious mood to make roses, paperwise that is. And I ended up making 3 different kinds cos’ they look so beautiful that I couldn’t wait to learn to make them all! 1. Kawasaki rose I first tried the Kawasaki rose, named after its creator Toshikazu Kawasaki, by following this demo and cross referenced with another demo [part 2 | 3 ].

Like most of you, I’m sure, I tend to go through a lot of paint chips when trying to decide on a color to paint a room. And when the project is done, I toss the paint chips into a box I keep in my craft room. They are the perfect “I’ll use these one day” items, right? Well I stumbled upon the box a few days ago and realized just how many I’d collected over the years. Oh the memories this pile brings back! There are the numerous shades of tan that I went through when painting the kitchen.

I am a meal planner. I refuse to go grocery shopping without my week’s worth of meals planned out and list made. (It’s either that or wander aimlessly around the grocery store for two hours and then make ten more trips back during the week to get things I forgot.) Once I get the groceries unloaded, I usually forget what I planned for, so I put together this super easy wipe-off menu board to keep track of what’s for dinner each night! Wipe-Off Menu Board Tutorial
Even when we are super busy, we try to use part of our Monday to create something new. The pretty colour palette below was the starting point for two new vintage paper bouquet artworks. We wanted these to look like they had just ben picked fresh from the garden. Lots of greenery, sunny yellows, pretty pink and bush shades, bold reds, fresh white and a smattering of cornflower blue and purple. These 3d artworks are very time consuming as each petal and leaf is cut with scissors from vintage children's books (destined for the rubbish before we rescued them beacuse of their damaged condition), and finding the perfect shade involves flicking through dozens and dozens of titles. You should see the floor when we are finished.
