Shrinking Snowflake Necklace I made these for party favors for my daughter’s birthday, but I’ve been wearing one of them around myself so I don’t think this is just a kids’ project. But it does involve shrinky dinks! If you haven’t worked with shrinkable plastic before, you can buy it online or at your local craft store.

I’m Catherine from the blog Design Editor. I’m a graphic designer and mom of 19-month-old twins sharing my love for all things design. DIY Box Braid Necklace The moment we saw Phillip Lim‘s Box Braid Collar Necklace, we were immediately overcome with a wave of nostalgia. Our memories of a neon, plastic box braid lanyard was suddenly transformed into a sophisticated leather jewelry component. Honestly, brilliant! Inspired by our fondness of Lim’s necklace and our love of utilizing hardware, we made our own interpretation of a box braid necklace. And in case you forgot how to make your favorite childhood summertime craft, take a trip down memory lane with us!

Boden Boulevard Necklace Knockoff Did you know Mother’s Day is about a week and half away?? Eek!! I don’t know about you but I’m scrambling a bit here. ;) So I thought I’d help you out. Actually, Melissa and I are helping you out. :) Melissa sent in a Tutorial Request for a darling Boden Necklace – and I knew that it would be perfect for a Mother’s Day idea. Or a “I’m going to make that myself for Mother’s Day” idea. ;)

DIY Paper Jewellery When I got out my jewellery making equipment last week to create my Gucci watch knock-off, I was not only reminded of just how much supplies I have, but also, how much I used to enjoy making jewellery. So, I decided to make something super easy and fun that I can wear as an accessory this week. I had bought some Mod Podge Dimensional glue ages ago and have been dying to experiment with it. And yes, experiment is definitely the right word.

April Showers bring may flowers. I found this cute little flower key holder the other day while surfing the net. It looked easy to make, and I already had a lot of the supplies around. A friend of mine just moved into a new place, and I thought it would be cute for the walls. Also, she loves books, so it was fitting. DIY Friendship Necklace As soon as Lauren and I saw this editorial in Flare Magazine, we knew we had to recreate these awesome, friendship bracelet-like necklaces. We promise they are super easy to make and the perfect way to pass the time during those long summer roadtrips. To make a 2-tone necklace, cut a long piece of rope and wrap two different colors of embroidery thread around its own bobbin. Tie a starter knot along with the two colored threads you are using, leaving at least 3 inches of slack, Tape down the slack to a flat surface or safety pin it something that will help keep it in place (feeling nostalgic yet?). Lay the color that isn’t being used (shown here in purple) in your left hand, along with the rope, and hold them taut. Take the active color (shown here in red) in your right hand, pass it over the rope, loop it under and back through the opening.

Chunky Link Ball Chain Friendship Bracelets As you know from this and this, I just can’t stop making friendship bracelets! They look so good mixed + matched, piled high… adding the perfect, summery pop of color to whatever it is that you’re wearing. Today’s bracelet is a bit more blingy than the others I’ve made so far… and if you’d like, you could make it the more conventional way (using a clasp + jump ring vs. string…) or even make a necklace! There are so many ways to get creative with this project. For extra credit, try it using resin or tortoise links. I made three – in turquoise, orange, and light pink.

Money Money Money Ready to see my mystery office desktop? The one John and I have been working so hard on for the past few weeks? And learn how we did it? 10 Pretty Ways to Display your Necklaces at Home {DIY} {Shelterness} {Gadora Wilder} {be different act normal} {monaluna} {mustard & sage – originally from decor8} {The Budget Babe} Fishtail Braid Friendship Bracelets Today’s DIY project is inspired by one of my favorite things to do to my hair in the summer – the fishtail braid. (The Beauty Department has an easy tutorial and A Cup of Jo has a fun twist on it – check them out.) The end result is snazzier than a classic braid, but considerably easier to make than a classic knotted friendship bracelet, with the same chevron pattern.

Book Page Necklace I love books. I love books, and I love writing, and I love reading, and I. Love. Books. I love crafting (clearly), so I wanted to make a little something bookish. I’ve seen a lot of tutorials out there using old books and book pages, and I have to admit… it seems like a sacrilege, LOL.
