Coffee Filter Rose Tutorial - Emmalee Elizabeth Design I’ve had some requests to do a tutorial on the coffee filter roses I made for my wedding. So here it is. Like I said they really are easy once you get the hang of them. A bit of practice and you’ll have beautiful roses in no time. The supply list is simple. Trace the petal patterns onto the coffee filters and cut them out. Tip: Make sure that you keep the different petals separated. So this is where the explanation gets tricky, so bear with me as I try to explain it the best I can. Tip: Make sure that you wrap each petal with enough tape to secure it tightly. Rip open petal #2 at the seam, leaving one side still connected. Pedals #5 and #6 require two steps so that they stick securely to the stem. When you are finished it will look nothing like a rose. The flower doesn’t have to look perfect at this time you just want the petals to be some what open. With a wooden stick (a pencil will work) curl the petals edges. Once the petals are curled you will need to color the roses.

How To: Make a Ribbon Memo Board | Savvy n Sassy This is a lot easier to make than it looks! And you can adapt this to whatever supplies you have on hand! Have fun with it! Gather Your Supplies: Here I’m using an old bulletin Board – frame removed, fabric to size, furniture nails, 10 yards of ribbon, scissors, stapler, low loft batting, and pins (not shown) First Things First: Cut your Batting to Size: Staple to Bulletin Board Trim off Excess Batting: Front Of Bulletin Board: Back of Bulletin Board: Now take your fabric and trim to size – leave a generous outline (you can cut off the excess later) Now go ahead and Staple that material to your Bulletin Board! Don’t forget to trimm off your excess when you are done. Now here comes the fun part! Once I had the ribbon pinned down the way I liked it – I stapled it securely to the back! Now once that was done, I took my furniture nails and placed them wherever the ribbon made “x”‘s and then I pushed them in. There are so many variations you could try – Explore them!

Backlit Canvas Art Do you have one project that you've been longing to do, but just haven't found the time yet? This is it for me. I call it my Backlit Canvas Art and the inspiration piece has been pinned in my "Crafts to try" Pinterest board for ages. My "pin"speration is an artist's piece made from metal that has hand cut flowers all over it. Its backlit by Christmas lights, and I pretty much love it! So I decided to give it a go and create my version. There are two main differences between the two: 1. 2. The idea of the canvas is that during the day (ie. with the Christmas light off) you have a beautiful sculpture while at night (you guessed it, with the Christmas lights on!) How about a tutorial? Supply list Mounted canvas (mine is 10"x10") cardstock to fit on your canvas (mine is 12"x12") stamps ink pad X-acto knife light source* *I wasn't sure if I wanted to use a single bulb or Christmas lights so that is why both are in the above picture. I decided to go with the same flower theme as my inspiration piece.

DIY Wood-Grain Laptop Wrap When I was wandering through the dollar store the other day I came across this super amazing wood-grain contact paper. and was completely smitten! I knew I needed to find something to cover it with - pronto! Enter, my lapytop. This poor beast is old, makes a crazy fan-sound whenever it's on, and can't really handle doing more than one tast - but it works! So, I had plenty of photos of the entire process, but my camera is also an old and quirky beast and has taken to randomly deleting photos, which it decided to do half-way through the whole DIY process, so sorry! So, to start, go ahead and power off your laptop and take out the battery so you're free to work on it without any worries. Now, unroll your contact paper, and lay your computer on top with the grain going wichever way you want, then cut around it, leaving a large boreder on all sides (you'll trim it down later). Now, you can decide what you'd like to do about the logo on your cover.

Liberty of London Swatch Portraits In our teeny-tiny fabric shop, Purl Patchwork, it is a challenge to find fresh ideas to display our favorite products in customer-friendly ways. We were really scratching our heads when a bunch of new Tana Lawn prints from Liberty of London arrived last week on unruly five-foot-tall bolts! Our solution: we filled a handful of simple wooden embroidery hoops with swatches of fabric and displayed them all on the wall like a family portrait gallery. These swatch portraits are so easy to make and they make great gifts too! The Materials To make one portrait: A square of fabric, at least 2" wider than your hoop in all directions. The Pattern Place fabric in the hoop, pull taught. Turn to wrong side, run a small line of glue around the inside hoop, just next to the fabric.Press fabric into glue, all the way around. Allow Glue to dry. Trim fabric to edge of hoop.

diy: bird mobile One of my very best friends is pregnant - someone with whom I went to preschool, Mother's Morning Out and Girl Scouts, and who I picked up every day for high school. She and her husband live in Kentucky now, and they're decorating an adorable baby-girl nursery. Two years ago, I made a bunch of little birds to decorate our wedding reception, and I based the pattern on these beautiful birds that Jessica had made for me. I thought they would make a perfect mobile for a nursery some day, even before Spool's showed up online (theirs is adorable, too). Materials: 1/4 yard each of four contrasting fabrics needle and thread polyester stuffing 10" and 12" wood embroidery hoops monofilament or fishing line about a dozen crimp tubes (available at beading stores) needle-nose pliers, for flattening crimp tubes staple gun and 1/4" staples Here is the simple pattern that I made to make these birds. When you've made eight birds, sew them onto the inner ring of a 10" and a 12" embroidery hoop. Done!

I’ll just give you a quick how-to on creating these and then you’ll be making candles out of every shell, tea cup or old tin you find around the house. First, you’ll need these supplies from a craft store… soy waxwicksfragrancedye I really like the way soy wax melts so I always use it whenever I’m making candles. Find and clean a large shell.Take a glass measuring cup and melt one cup of wax to start. Tips: I use just a little yellow to give it a slight color like the inside of a shell.

Have fun! ~Kim Simple Spring Framed Vases » Flamingo ToesFlamingo Toes I don’t know about you but I am loving everything that is blooming right now! One of my favorite things to decorate with is fresh flowers. I think it brightens up a room so much! A couple weeks ago at Michael’s I found some tiny little glass vases for .99. Until now! It seemed perfect for my little vase display and I love it! Isn’t it bright and cheery? And not only were there 2 big bunches – but they were still in the paper, because Mr. So let’s get started. You’ll need frames, vases (one or two per frame), and twine. If you have frames that you are happy with – you can skip this step. I have a stash of ucky old oak frames – some of them were happy to donate themselves for a makeover. :) Start by painting your frames in the colors you’d like. Make sure your frames are covered well – and that you paint the inside section where the glass goes as well. Once your frames are dry, brush on a contrasting color - I used dark gray. Make a knot in the twine right at the neck. What do you think??
