Ric Rac Rose I love these easy-to-make Ric Rac Roses! Isn’t it beautiful? You can make these and use them in hair, on jewelry, on clothing, as embellishments on anything! And with The Ribbon Retreat’s large selection of Ric Rac, your possibilities are endless! – Supplies – Ric Rac (I used 3/4″) Hot Glue Accessory to attach it to The first thing to know about this Ric Rac Rose is that the wider the Ric Rac, the taller the rose. I started out by cutting two pieces of Ric Rac at 21 inches. I ended up using a bit less than 21 inches… probably 16 or 17 inches. Now we are going to “braid” the two pieces of Ric Rac together. Keep going until you get to the end. Take the end and curl the Ric Rac in. Continue rolling the Ric Rac. You can put a little hot glue on the sides as you are rolling it. Here is how the side looks. When you like the size of your rose, you can stop rolling. Now put some glue on the under side of the rose. Bring the Ric Rac under the rose and adhere it to the glue. It looks pretty, just like this!

Tutorials: Paper Roll Mice Told you I'd be back with another one! This time, I've put together a pair of Christmas mice. Aren't they fun?? Wanna make one?? Get your paper rolls ready! Form one into a circle. Form another into a teardrop. Glue the teardrop to the top of the circle. Make two more circles and glue them on for ears. Now for the feet. Glue the feet to the bottom of the body of the mouse. Now you need to form the front paws. You can also add a spot of glue to the crease, it you have a stubborn tube. Place the front paws and glue. Make a tail by flattening and shaping a strip. Attach the tail behind the feet. I decided that I wanted the ears together, so I just added a spot of glue between them. And that's it so far. Just a hint: cheap spray paint is no bargain. Remember the detached face we made for the paper roll Easter bunny? When he's dry, glue the poms to his nose and dress him up with a few embellishments. Now for the second mouse. These feet are less complicated than the first mouse. Glue the center down.

RIT Dye Tutorial It happens to me every year. The second spring hits, I’m standing in front of my closet going, I am so sick of all my clothes, if I see that shirt again I’ll throw up, but I don’t have any money for new stuff, I’M SO TIRED OF EVERYTHING I OWN. You know that feeling? Let’s kill it with instant-wardrobe-transformer (aka RIT dye). RIT is a brand of clothing dye that’s been around since the 1930s. It turns drab-colored clothes and accessories into bright works of art, and I am obsessed with it. to these! And it’s not even hard. Now, there are other kinds of clothing dye out there, but I chose RIT because it’s got simple instructions on the back of the package, it costs about $3 per box, and you can find it almost everywhere in the U.S. I’m gonna show you how to do a basic stovetop dye job. But! OK! You will need: So now that we have our materials, let’s dye this elegant-yet-boring purse I found at a garage sale for a dollar! Step One: Fill your pot ¾ full with water. to this!

My Pet Cloud -- An Adorable, Easy and Inexpensive Craft Adorable, super easy, and less than 15-cents to make... That's what I love about the "Pet Cloud" project. A few months back I saw this ingenious little idea on Pinterest and traced the source to the SWAPS-a-lot website -- a great source for readymade Girl Scout swap kits. Fast forward to this final week of student teaching in a first-grade classroom. I wanted to give each student a little something to remember me by. I wanted to do something sweet, inexpensive and with an inspiring message. So I put my personal twist on this delightfully squee project by making up a custom tag and poem (free printable below). These sweet little chaps make a terrific gift for teachers and youth group leaders to give to their students. Materials Step 2: Put a small dab of tacky glue on the back of a googly eye. Step 3: Download and print out the tags on card stock. Spread smiles!

How-To: "Stained Glass" Votive Holders By Jenny Ryan Many times when I’m at the grocery or drug store, I can’t resist throwing a few scented votive candles in my cart. When I’m ready to burn them, it’s easy enough to sit one on a cute little vintage china saucer, but I recently decided to try and find a fancier display solution for them. I also wanted the project to be inexpensive, and the materials used to be things I already had on hand. I was inspired by memories of making faux-stained glass in elementary school and came up with these fun little glass votive holders. Materials Tissue paper in your desired colors Mod Podge (matte finish), in a pinch you can also use school gluePaintbrush Scissors Glass containers to fit your candle(s), I used thrifted vases and wine tumblers Paper punches in various shapes Q-tips, optional Directions Step 1: Figure out what colors of tissue paper you’d like to use and what paper punch shapes you want to try out. Jenny Ryan is an artist, crafter, and maker of things. More: Related

Monogrammed Cell Phone Covers I recently got a Smartphone and looked into buying a monogrammed cover for it. When I saw the $50 price tag, I knew it was not going to happen. The only way I was going to be able to afford one, was to make one. I ended up making more than one as I was having so much fun coming up with different looks, fonts, and styles that I made a few. A few for me and a few for my friends and family. Here is how I made them. I found the clear case at the phone cover kiosk at my local mall, it was $12. I gathered some scrapbook papers I liked. Along with a glue stick, paper hole punch, and a small pair of scissors. 1. Make sure it fits in and then cut out the camera hole. Using my computer I created a few monograms. Print your monograms, names, or initials onto computer paper. Glue to the center of the piece of scrapbook paper.

Make your own jellyfish in a bottle. « BhoomPlay ~ Note for Thai fans ~ เป็นโพสเก่าที่มีแฟนบล๊อกจากต่างประเทศขอมาให้เขียนเป็นภาษาอังกฤษนะคะส่วนแฟนบล็อกที่ยังไม่เคยอ่านเรื่องนี้เลย ฉบับภาษาไทยดูที่นี่ค่ะ The other day, while I was thinking to get something to put in the water bottle for Bhoom to shake for fun. I saw a plastic grocery bag next to me and then this idea popped up. I think.. well, give it a try. With some trials and errors, my little jellyfish comes alive just like I thought it would be. : ) When daddy and son first saw it, they’re surprised with their jaws wide open. Things you need to make your own jellyfish (Hope you can find all these in your kitchen) : 1. Instruction: • Flatten the bag and cut off the handle and the bottom part (see picture 1) • Cut along both sides (see picture 2) to split into 2 plastic sheets – by the way, we only use just one of them. • From the center of the plastic sheet, fold it like a tiny balloon to make the head part and tie it with the thread – not too tight (see picture 3).

DIY Christmas Gifts - Idea #1 - DIY Christmas Ornament - Sprightliest Is it just me or does it seem like everyone is feeling extra Christmasy earlier than usual this year? Even a plaza around where I live had their Christmas decorations up before Halloween. Now that is early! Maybe it’s because Thanksgiving falls at the very latest it can this year. It’s 6 days later than last year and that much closer to December. I try and wait until after Thanksgiving to start decorating and listening to Christmas music and I plan to do so this year -BUT – I’m starting some crafting and baking a little early. To kick things off here is a DIY Christmas ornament that would make a great gift. What you’ll need: Wooden Letter Paint (Any spray paint, craft or acrylic paint would work) Foam Brush Mod Podge Sandpaper or File Sharp blade knife Scissors Ribbon or Embellishments Scrapbook Paper or Wrapping Paper Pen/Pencil Step 1- Paint the wooden letter and allow it to dry.

She's {kinda} Crafty: Halloween {Candy} Holder I know that we have 6 weeks until Halloween but sometimes it doesn't hurt to be a little pre-prepared for big howl-days. I prepared a {FREE} little candy holder (that would also work for crayons or pencils or maybe fruit roll-ups) that you can print out, cut out, and tape together. It's pretty easy but I made a quick tutorial to show you how to put them together. You can find the links to the downloads after the tute!! Supplies: White card stock to print out the files Scissors or a Paper Trimmer Double-sided scrapbook adhesive or a Glue Stick Washi Tape (optional) Download, print, and cut out the holder pieces. Lay the longer piece of card stock upside down and fold up the printed "Happy Halloween" and make a really nice straight crease (use a bone folder if you have one). There are 2 ways you can finish your holder - The first is to run a little scrapbook tape on the edges of the front piece and fold it down on to the backer forming your pocket. It's a little freaky how well it matches!
