Diy idea: heart-shaped paper clips

i love projects that make me smile and think “why didn’t i think of that?”. this fun heart-shaped paper clip project from jessica jones at how about orange is so easy it’s almost impossible to resist making a few of these at your desk right now. all you need is a paperclip and your fingers- because you’re just a few bends away from a heart-shaped way to keep your sweetie’s papers together. if i had children i would definitely use this to pin a sweet valentine’s day note to their lunches. click here for more info on jessica’s site.

Už? / I wonder... Jestlipak už nastal čas na puzlíky? Na ten skvělý vynález, při kterém dítě zapomene na čas, jídlo, maminku? Při kterém nemarní čas, ale tříbí smysle? Aktualizace: Ano! Andulce se obličeje líbí a hraje si / skládá. Ovšem víc se soustředí na jednotlivé výrazy a zkouší se "tvářit". 2x A4 I wonder if Andulka is old enough to play puzzle games? Update: Yes! DIY Leather Bag Tutorial | CLAD&CLOTH I was perusing around the internet and I found a DIY Leather Bag Tutorial. I fell in love. So ooooobviously I decided to make one for myself, especially since I have extra leather lying around. Before I get to the tutorial I have a confession to make (I know I make way too many confessions on here). I actually was a jock in high school and made fun of people who did crafts (it was a long time ago peepoe). I’ve worked with leather quite a bit, so this may not be true for everyone, but this was not that hard. Tools you’ll need: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Here are the measurements. Sew up both sides of the bag, right sides together, using your sewing machine. Now this part may seem really tricky but it’s really not. After sewing up both sides turn the bag right side out. The next step is to make straps for your bag.

LES OGSÅ: Få det fint på lite plass Det eneste som tar tid er tørkingen, så sett den på et underlag som tåler fuktighet og vipp den opp på høykant etter en stund.

MODA E DICAS DE COSTURA: IDEIAS DE RECICLAGEM - 7 Seed Paper Tutorial | I first heard of seed paper–or hand made paper that has real flower seeds embedded in the pulp itself and is actually plantable–about a year ago while browsing through a stationary catalog. It was the coolest idea I’d ever seen–and so incredibly spring-y! Well, who knew that you could make this funky stuff all by yourself? First Step: Making the Screen Frame Here’s what you’ll need for the screen frame: 6-12 wide craft sticks–think tongue depressors Craft glue 1 or 2 pieces of mesh or screen about 6″x6″ electrical tape Glue four sticks together–like this. Lay the screen over the sticks and glue in place. Now glue two more sticks–one on the top and one on the bottom. I rested a glass bowl over the frames to hold everything in place until the glue dried. Your frame should look pretty much like this. Now wrap the whole frame with electrical tape, making sure to cover all the exposed wood. Second Step: Making the paper pulp Here’s what you’ll need to make the pulp: small flower seeds water Step #3

Folded leather basket :: a minimalistic DIY I love minimalism, as I truly believe less is more. I have always loved geometry. I love figuring out how things are built. Lately I have been drawn into building shapes, going from something flat to something three dimensional and functional with the least steps involved. The teddy bear key chain is one example. So, when I came across this fabulous basket and DIY on Pinterest, I couldn't get to my craft's table fast enough. This is an easy and fast craft, which requires minimal supplies: a (small) piece of leather, a hole punch, rivets and rivet setter, a cutting tool, and a ruler and pencil. Now if you don't have access to leather, try using heavy weight felt as in the original tutorial, or use foam sheets. Before you get started and especially when using precious materials like leather, I recommend making a paper version first, just to make sure you got the dimensions right. Instructions: 1.

delightful country cookin': homemade air freshener "Don't you get fresh with me, ya hear!" Oh, I love it when adults (especially grandparents) say that to little kids. What does it mean exactly? Does it mean we'd rather children get dirty with us? Haha...who knows? Today, I'm going to ask you to actually get fresh with me. I digress. I was roaming around on Tasty Kitchen one day when I came across a recipe for homemade air freshener. To make these little beauties, you first need a heat-proof jars (I found mine for $0.99 each at Michael's), food coloring colors of your choice, and essential oil. Into each jar, drop a few drops (I repeat...a few...it doesn't take more than 2 or 3) of food coloring. Now for the fun part. Why salt? Get one cup of water boiling on the stove. Then, pour in the other cup of cold water and the salt, stirring until the salt is dissolved. Quickly pour the hot gelatin mixture in each of your jars, and then use a disposable stick or spoon to stir it into the oil and food coloring.
