Feb 16 I was making party decorations for Roman’s party and ended up sort of inventing these little streamers. They might be my favorite thing ever right now–they are just so fringey and frilly!

I wrote about this technique in the May/June 2007 issue of Cloth Paper Scissor Magazine. Here is a quick recap. Supplies: Magazine pages and cut-outs, double-sided tape, sewing machine, gesso, gel medium and acrylic paint.

I posted awhile an image that showed off the giant picture I made for my girls' room - finally, the tutorial is here! It was so cheap - around $13 (that's $8 for the print, and another $5 worth of an $11 foam board because you won't need to use the whole board....) UPDATE Sept 2012: - - I LOVE this project so much that I made another one for my Dining Room - and this time I mounted it on plywood.
I taught my MOPS group how to make these a couple years ago & thought I'd give a tutorial. I learned how to make them from Paper Source . The first one I made kept things inside like receipts, to-do lists/grocery lists, coupons, & stamps. I made this red & brown one as a portable shipping book--to keep my packaging goodies handy when orders go out: stamps, labels, biz cards, stickers & notes. Here are the supplies you'll need... -envelopes (you can make your book however big or small you want.
These wee notebooks are super easy to make & you'll want to make, like, a million of them because they're so cute!! I recently received an awesome package of these mini notepads from the president of my Eastern Washington Etsy Street Team , Randi- a.k.a.
Lately we have been working on the "Man Cave" and I decided to surprise my geeky comic book loving guys with some artwork. For this one, I turned my son into a comic book character! This effect can be used to blow up any image though so you can use this for any style of artwork. Supplies: foam board from dollar tree (in the school supplies section)
I was searching for a cheap, light, but nice-looking material to make armor out of, and I discovered one - craft foam! This tutorial is designed to show what you can create using only materials that are widely available at general craft stores, with no need for specialty shops or internet orders. I specifically used it for Helm's Deep elf armor, but it could be used for almost any armor that you can break down into fairly flat pieces. The method listed below is what I've come up with, but there really is no one right way to use craft foam; check the end of the tutorial for links to other foam armor sites. For an example of a finished project, here's a picture of my elven armor. Advantages:
Making personalized candles is easier than you think.
UPDATE: Since posting this I have made two more interchangeable rooms - a kitchen and bedroom - and posted a step-by-step tutorial on how I made it. Would you like to make your own? I already showed you Dolly , but now she has a place to call home, and some cute new clothes to boot! I had so much fun making this, but I have to say that I got majorly burned out whipping this up so quickly for the Christmas time crunch.
Yes, I am 28-years-old and I carry a Kool-Aid wallet. What about it? :) I started making these about ten years ago but back then I was using packing tape and they didn't look as good and weren't very durable.
Drew really pulled out the big guns on this one... I asked him to build some A-Frame tents... Or pup tents... I don't know... We found some online, but didn't like them 100%.
The things that you need may be found through some combination of local stores, electronics parts shops, online and scrounging parts from old electronic junk you may have lying around. Parts & Equipment: -One umbrella, preferably light colored (I picked yellow), with a straight handle and with a hollow shaft so that you may pass wires through it. It is very important that the umbrella be simple - none of that spring loaded-automatic stuff! You want the shaft to be hollow. -64 SMD (surface mount) LEDs in your color of choice.
Ever since I posted the tutorial on how to make your own free printables using Picnik , I have received a dozen or so requests for a tutorial on how to make your own subway art. I referred some of you to the original with a few tips, but it seems the problem everyone was having was in the printing :). I had this ready for you last Monday, but decided I should have it printed to make sure all was well in that department – glad I did, because I had to make one little adjustment.
