Blueprint Crafts » Tile Coaster Tutorial Tile Coaster Tutorial April 7th, 2010 So my good friend Emily just moved into her completely redone house a few weeks ago, and she asked me to make her some unique coasters. UPDATE! For this tutorial, you’ll need a set of tiles – I got a handful from Home Depot for $0.20 a piece, some scraps of scrapbooking paper or any kind of paper really, some mod podge, clear acrylic spray, and felt pads for the bottom. First, cut and measure you paper to the fit your tile. Next, clean and dry your tiles – they are much easier to work with if you clean them off thoroughly. After you’ve applied your mod podge top coats, take your tiles out to a well ventilated area and apply two coats of your acrylic spray (I sprayed mine outside in the grass). Cute right! Today I’m going to finish up Emily’s – so excited to see how they look in her new house! And, I’ve got a few big projects that I am STILL working on, and I CAN’T wait to show you all!

Yep words. My dear friend Alison made 'subway art' with words that reminded her of me. My family and I sat down and made a list of words that described a family in our neighborhood. If you've never used Wordle before, you simply plug in words, and it creates a word collage. We wrapped the 'family word art' around a can of hot chocolate. We then wrapped the 'individual word art' around a Styrofoam cup for each member of the family. We attached a little note to the can of hot-cocoa that said... I like to imagine the family gathering around, having a cup of hot cocoa, and discussing all the sweet words that describe them. I hope it makes them smile. Thank you for the opportunity to be on the fabulous U-create today! You May Also Like… Reindeer Feed Christmas Gift Idea Personalized Ornament Tutorial

How To Make A Stylish Photo Frame For Several Photos Here is a simple yet stylish photo frame that can accomodate quite many photos at once. The idea is very simple. Fasten twines on the empty frame and hang photos using clothes pins on them. DIY Book Clutch I love things that are quirky, and if they boarder on the nerdy side of quirky I love them even more. Olympia Le-Tan’s handmade embroidered book clutches are so perfectly and quaintly quirky that I immediately fell in love. If the clutches alone hadn’t already woo-ed me sufficiently, the film she made with Spike Jonze for Nowness definitely would have tipped me over the edge into obsession. The real thing starts around $1,300, but you can DIY for about $15! I used one of these newly reprinted classics from Barnes & Noble, they’re perfect for this with whimsical hardcovers and sturdy pages. Like this: Like Loading...

Lined Paper Tee by Maybe Matilda I’m pretty dang excited to be guest posting on U Create, of all places, with an easy and fun project for you. Just in time for heading back to school, I came up with this cute top: My name is Rachel, and I blog over Maybe Matilda. I’m from small-town New York, currently living in Utah with my soon-to-be-chiropractor husband and our soon-to-be-one-year-old son. I think this lined paper tee is such a fun way to bring out the inner student, and possibly even encourage a little bookishness in a little one (maybe that’s a stretch, but a girl can hope, right?). It’s really simple to put together, and you can easily make it in any size. Here’s what you’ll need to make this tee: a white tank, tee, or onesie masking tape foam brush blue and red acrylic paint fabric painting medium (available at craft stores–you’ll find it with the paint supplies) (You can see here that I only painted in every other open space for the adult tee. Give it some time to dry, then carefully remove the tape.

Hi my sweet bloggie friends!!! Hand Embroidered Cards Look what I found in my desk drawer! I made these embroidered cards so long ago and then just tucked them away in a drawer to be forgotten about. What a shame! I thought these cards would make a great DIY for the blog because they're easy and fun to make, and you probably have all the supplies on hand already. If you're anything like me you have waaaaay too many colors of embroidery floss tucked away somewhere. What you'll need: Pencil for drawing your designPiece of thick cardboardEmbroidery flossSheets of blank paperEmbroidery needle and a pin with a headBlank Card Start by drawing out your design on a piece of thin blank paper. When I made my fruit cards, I actually used an iron-on transfer from Sublime Stitching, which is a really great book that you should all run out and buy right this very second. Now you can start poking holes along the lines using the pin with a head. Now comes the fun part! Once you're done, admire your work!

How-to: Fold a sheet of plain white paper diagonally. page corner bookmarks | I Could Make That This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks. Page corner bookmarks are cute, practical and deeply under-represented in the world.* They’re easy to make, easy to customize, and will set you apart from all those same-same flat rectangular bookmarks. If you like this tutorial, here are a couple others that might be up your alley.
