Cardboard Gift Tags | Family Chic THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2011 | Comments: 17 The arrival of my husband's new bass amp has provided me with an enormous corrugated box to work with. I've been hooked on embroidery these days – so I couldn't resist using the cardboard to stitch up some gift tags for Valentine's Day. I cut out a piece of cardboard and pressed a cookie cutter into it to leave an impression that I could work from. You could also trace with a pencil – but I find this is an easier technique to use with kids and there are no pencil marks to erace. Using a blunt needle, pierce holes into your shape. Thread your needle with yarn and – using a back stitch – fill in your design. This is a great way to teach your kids some basic stitches.

Toilet Paper Art « This Handmade Circus This is absolutely the most popular piece of artwork in our home, so I decided that this would be the perfect tutorial to start with! This is made from all recycled paper towel and toilet paper rolls, but everyone thinks it is made of iron. It is super light weight and you can change it to look anyway you would like and costs less than 1$! I found a picture of this on pinterest and LOVED it! First gather as many paper towel/toilet paper rolls that you need (mine took a LOT) and then begin cutting them into 1 inch strips. Then form your center flower with as many petals as you would like with the tips touching and pushing them as close together as you can. Next, like a puzzle, start laying new pieces in the in-between crevices however you like them! Then you just keep adding….and keep adding…and keep adding…Until it is the size and shape that you want. Then, were you’re all done adding (or at least you get the hang of it) start glueing. Once it dries, you’re ready to hang! Happy creating!
