How To: Make a Bulletin Board from Wine Corks | Apartment Therapy Re-Nest
Wine cork bath mat Inspired by CB2's bamboo bath mat I’m evidently on a hot-glue kick lately. This bath mat requires just three materials: shelf liner, hot glue, and 175 wine corks. How did I gather 175 wine corks, you ask? Working at Sunset had its perks. With all the wine tastings in that office, collecting corks was a cinch.
Cleaning Buttons: How to for the Button Collector Before cleaning buttons, it is essential to know what material the button is made of, as well as its construction. Also, it is best to have the proper tools or cleaning materials for the job in order to avoid damaging the button. The following cleaning techniques have been suggested by a variety of collectors. I have not tested them all. So experiment on less expensive buttons first. Be cautious.

Mini roses from dollar store crepe paper streamers Gonna show you how to make these, because there's still enough time before Valentine's day, and also Heather from Dollar Store Crafts is having a link party and all you need to make these is crepe paper streamers that the Dollar Store sells in packs of two. No glue, no tape, none of that nonsense, just crepe paper and opposable thumbs. When I was about ten years old, we had our village's first summer festival, where one girl from the local primary school got to be the carnival queen.
Just Undo It. How to Transform a Hoodie into Nearly Everything. — Conceptual Devices A hoodie is not just a hoodie. In a world full of stuff, smart items should be transformable, editable. They should engage the possibility to be transformed into something else. We do not need a new object.
Today I was not doing the "happy" thing. I was doing the "bleah, I feel so blah and depressed for no reason so I'm just going to eat poptarts and browse instagram" thing. I definitely didn't make the most of the daytime. ~Ruffles And Stuff~

Just Something I Made Personal Planner Review and Giveaway I was given a voucher to try out and review a Personal-Planner- spiral-bound calendar to design and customize online. And since I really needed something to get 2014 rolling with my upcoming craft workshops and classes (very soon to be announced), the timing was right! The process of designing my own planner was simple. There are lots of options: Outside - Upload personal pictures for front and back cover from desktop and Instagram - Change background, size, font, lining, images

Updated 10/1/12- I have revised this pattern and reposted the how to here. As a family, we kind of obsessively like our rice pillows and firmly believe it's one of those small things that greatly improve our quality of life. The giving of something like this is a large gesture on our part, a bit of a warm hug really. Part of our nighttime ritual is to pop one in the microwave, heat it up, and wrap it around cold feet, lay on an upset tummy, or just snuggle with it when its cold and pouring rain outside. I made Emma a new one, from a sweet floral sheet Sally gave me. These are so quick and satisfying to make, think of it as one of those quilts you haven't had the time or courage to jump into just yet. Wise Craft: make a rice pillow for your Valentine
Wink Designs: No-sew fabric covered boxes tutorial These are fun and easy to make (no sewing involved) and look great as storage containers on childrens' shelves or desks. I also decided to make one for myself for sewing pattern storage using the Alexander Henry "Perfect Pattern" print (I love this fabric - such a simple yet genius design!). I'd seen the fabric in various online shops but it sells out quickly so I was really happy to find that Tessuti now has some both in-store and online.
Mini bunting birthday card My latest quickie DIY project: a birthday card with a tiny bunting of miniature flags. If you want to try one, here's how to make it. Fold a sheet of cardstock into thirds, accordian style. If you want a printed message on your card, run it through your printer before folding. Cut out strips of colored paper and fold them in half lengthwise. (My strips were about 1" wide.)

What a ride. So much for “getting back on track with writing for Craft Leftovers”. I was really hoping my next post would be harolding that elusive next issue of the Craft Leftovers zine. Not to be so. Instead, I’ve got a crazy story to tell you of how I’ve had a whirlwind of bad luck when it comes to health. Craft Leftovers
