Tiny Polaroid Magnets

Tiny Polaroid Magnets
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!) I haven’t felt like myself. But nothing like inspiration to wake one out of a reverie — or nightmare, in my constantly sick state. I came across these DIY Pantone chip magnets on How About Orange and wanted to do something similar. You will need: Cardboard (mine was the backing of a sketchbook — much thicker than the back of a regular spiral bound notebook) or 2-3 sheets of white cardstock or poster board spray-mounted together to use as a sturdy backing to the magnetsOpaque white marker (necessary only if your cardboard is not white) Craft knife Metal straight edge/ruler Clear packing tape or frisk film. Step 1: Download a Photoshop file of the Polaroid frames below. Step 2: Print out photos onto photo paper. Step 4: Trim out photos with craft knife. 487 Comments

Garden art on the cheap DIY: Glass marbles in your fence Colorful marbles make a plain old fence sparkle. I had the pleasure of speaking at the Lake Owasso Garden Club this week. It was a full classroom of avid, fun-loving gardeners and the topic at hand was Art in the Garden. As I told the group, I think art and the garden go together like peas and carrots and as I prepped my talk, I was reminded of one of my favorite DIY project from my own garden, the Garden Drama test garden.

How to Make Clothing Buttons from Shrink Plastic… This tutorial is an old one of mine that’s too good not to share again.

How to make gift bags from newspaper When I bought something at a store recently, the clerk handed me my purchase in a bag made from a newspaper. I liked it very much and had to make some more—thus today's DIY recycled newspaper project: gift bags made from the Wall Street Journal. You can vary the dimensions, of course, but here's what I used to create a bag that's 5" tall, 4.5" wide, and 3" deep. Stack two sheets of newspaper on top of each other. This will be a two-ply bag for extra sturdiness. Re-Upholstering 101: How I re-upholstered my swivel armchair Holy SMOKES……..this post is WAY overdue! I hinted way back in October that I was working on re-upholstering a chair for Chloe’s nursery, from a chair that I bought from a thrift store about a year before that. I finally tackled/finished it (except for the seat cushion) before the holidays and then I saved it to share until after the New Year. But OOPS, it got pushed back. And then other projects cut in line. And then all that ugly sickness hit our home last week.

Vertical Storage From Old Dresser Drawers by Becky Striepe on January 7, 2014 If you live in a small space, storage is at a premium. Vertical storage is a great solution for fitting more stuff into less space! Just like vertical gardening, vertical storage takes advantage of height to help maximize a small area. Store-bought vertical storage solutions can be a little bit pricey, but when you make your own from reclaimed materials you save money and reduce your environmental impact! Bing, bang, boom!
