The most clever party favor my son has ever received was from a boy with an architect mom and sculptor dad. Yet the gift was more kitschy than Kahn, more crafty than Chihuly. In other words, it was perfect for a kid: a tiny DIY snow globe encased in a reused baby food jar (he’s a big brother). Read on for instructions on how they made it.

Hi there! It’s felt like forever since I’ve last blogged, and has felt like an eternity since I’ve done anything crafty and nifty. Since my morning sickness has gone into full speed (yes, we’re expecting our third this fall!)
During the 1970s, magazines published in Communist Czechoslovakia were controlled by the state, like the majority of other enterprises. Very few good magazines were available and were difficult to get hold of, so people would borrow and exchange them when given the opportunity. This also applied to magazines aimed at young people, which was probably one of the reasons why almost everyone from my generation, when we get on to the subject of pinhole cameras, has fond memories of the cut-out paper camera known as Dirkon * , published in 1979 in the magazine ABC mladých techniků a přírodovědců [An ABC of Young Technicians and Natural Scientists]. Its creators, Martin Pilný, Mirek Kolář and Richard Vyškovský, came up with a functional pinhole camera made of stiff paper, designed for 35 mm film, which resembles a real camera.

6 Dec We’re definitely in full-on holiday spirit over here at the 100LC headquarters! Shopping, wrapping, baking, the works. We found this easy tutorial on the Whole Living website, on how to make your own gift bow out of old magazines laying around. It’s surprisingly easy! Step 1: Cut the page lengthwise into nine 3/4-inch-thick strips of heights shown: Three at 11 inches, three at 10 inches, two at 9 inches, and one at 3 1/2 inches.
3 - Machine sewing Start sewing from one side of the opening, and follow the line all around the body. For straight corners, sew all the way to the corner, make sure the needle is down (so the fabric stays in place) then raise the foot of the sewing machine, pivot the fabric around, lower the foot and start sewing again. Do some backstitches at the beginning and the end of the line, to secure the thread. I usually leave the opening between the bottom legs, so it’s less noticeable if I mess it up. In this case, I felt very confident and left it open betweent the ears (and the legs were to close to each other, too). <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
