СНЕЖИНКИ от празни ролки Огромна бяла снежинка…направена от 8 празни ролки от тоалетна хартия. Всяка една от ролките се нарязава на 4 парчета с ножица ( ако нямате вече събрани празни ролки, извадете няколко, дори и от все още пълни рола тоалетна хартия). С телбод ги захванете така, че да се получи голяма снежинка.

PAPER TOWEL ROLL STARS {day 8} Talk about simple upcycling! Slice up a paper towel or toilet paper roll and you’ve got yourself a glittery, star ornament! Chalkboard Mason Jar Magnetic Jars Longest title ever for a craft? I just couldn't decide what to call it, so it;s a little long-winded.... But, here's a tutorial on how to make Chalkboard Mason Jar Magnetic Jars: I was sent some products to try out from Plaid, along with a gift card to Walmart for any other supplies I may need. First off, did you know that Walmart has expanded their craft department?? It's awesome - my store even jumped over across the main aisle for more room... (oh man, I must be technology challenged - I took these with my tablet and now I can't flip the pictures - so turn your head and humor me .... ) Do you remember a couple of years ago when they downsized the craft section and took out fabric (at least my Walmart did ) to make room for a bigger electronics section - - and then mine brought back fabric a few months ago and I jumped for joy - - and now the whole craft department has expanded recently - take that electronics! Including tons of products from Plaid - awesomeness!

There is a will...there is a way! Do you ever at first sight? Do you have sleepless night just to think how to 'have' it? Do you ever tried 101 ways just to fulfill your desperate-want-to or must-have? I saw the projects months ago...I have all the material on hand...but only one thing short... So... second alternative.... Third alternative...Finally, I started to regain my conscious. See...My this beauty... Material : 1 piece of mirror 1 piece of "?" 1 piece of tin's lid - the size of the lid have to be smaller than the mirror. Pieces of old least 3mm thinkness Glue, Double sides tape, Glue Gun Some sequins (optional) Method :- 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

MAGIC Decal Tutorial with Free Printables! Some of you may remember, a little while back I posted a tutorial for DIY waterslide decals. Among other things, I mentioned how awesome they are for creating custom embellishments without the need for any fancy-pants equipment. Yep, waterslide decal paper is a truly fab product, though as great as it is, there is one drawback – although it’s somewhat tough it’s not especially durable. So, whilst it’s perfect for ornamental purposes, it’s not ideal for more practical applications…until now that is! Magic decal coating paper is a product designed to be used in conjunction with standard decal paper to make the finished transfers super durable – yes, even dishwasher resistant! If you’re already familiar with magic decal coating paper then please excuse my tardy excitement, though for everyone else who is just getting to the party now too, feel free to start throwing the streamers! 1 Image to transfer. Use anything you like. 2 Printer. You can use either a laser or an inkjet printer. 6 Scissors.

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.

Vintage Book Expanding File I wanted to have a few new examples for my vintage book planner notebook demo next weekend at the Maker Faire. (Here are some from last year, a few that I will be bringing with me again.) I spied a brand new letter-size expandable file at the thrift store the other day and thought it would be fantastic nestled into a vintage book cover. I have a couple of 3-ring Better Homes & Gardens vintage binder books, one of which I just found today at the recycle area of our county transfer station. You can use any hardcover book that fits the expandable file. I used some 7Gypsies red measure paper tape to cover up the torn hole area and around the inside edges of the book, not because the edges needed it but because that tape just went so well with the design of the book. To create an elastic closure, you can use narrow stretch hair/headbands from the drugstore, which usually come in packs of assorted colors. Cut the headband and pinch the ends together with ribbon end crimps. Share

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!

Holder for Charging Cell Phone (made from lotion bottle My husband and I both have cell phones. And both of us have phone chargers. And that means lots of obnoxious cords. You never know when one of us may be moving phone cords around, to give our phones an extra charge while we’re chatting away……… or trying to charge our phones up before running errands or something. (Okay, and how about when you’re in a hotel or visiting family/friends. I was looking around on the internet for a solution and found this. It made the perfect little holder for my cell phone while it’s being charged. Holder for Charging Cell Phone And no more phone hanging down from the outlet while in this room or that room……..the cord and phone are now up off the ground, and tucked away into the little holder, while the phone drinks up a full charge. And of course I couldn’t just leave the poor little holder alone……I had to Mod Podge some fabric right onto it for some kick. If you look closely, you can see that the orange print is fabric. And turns out, it’s pretty useful.
