Lucky Wishing Stars Tutorial You’ve probably seen these little puffy origami stars before. They are really quick to make, and you don’t need any special materials to make them. You can buy lucky star pre-cut strips from origami stores, but you can just as easily make your own from medium weight coloured paper, e.g. scrapbooking paper, or even strips cut from magazine pages – as the strips are so narrow, the original text or image won’t be obvious in the finished star. Anti-clockwise from top left: pre-cut strips, paper cutter, scrapbook paper, magazine page. Now on to the tutorial! To give you an idea of size, I’ve made stars in 3 different sizes to show you: blue stars (from pre-cut strips): 35cm x 1.25cmpink stars (from a magazine page): 30cm x 1cmgreen stars (scrapbook paper): 15cm x 0.6cm The finished star will be approx 1.5 x the width of your strip, so pick an appropriate size for the size of star you’d like to end up with. For the rest of this tutorial, I will be using a paper strip cut from a magazine page.

Materials needed: 1/4 yard each of three coordinating fabrics (you'll definitely have scraps leftover)8" zipper (you can always purchase a longer zipper and shorten it, just follow the directions on the packagescraps of medium weight fusible interfacingCutting the pieces: For the main exterior, cut two pieces, one 5.5" tall by 9" wide, and one 5.5" tall by 13" wide (this will be the gathered front) Pieces of medium weight fusible interfacing for exterior pieces of clutch: (2) 5.5" tall by 9" wide For the front band, cut one piece 4" tall by 9" wide. Seriously, the most time consuming part for me is always picking out my fabrics and cutting them, the rest goes together pretty easy, so let's go! Take the front band piece and fold it in half the long way (right sides together) and sew together using a 1/2" seam allowance. Grab the 13" wide main exterior piece.

Wire & Paper Weave A Newspaper Basket Last night's project, a basket made from old newspaper. After seeing this post at CraftStylish, I was inspired to try one. Maybe I'll keep books and remote controls in it. 1. I cut the folded edge off a couple sections of newspaper and then cut those pages in half lengthwise. I used about 20 pages for this basket (about 40 strips). 2. 3. 4. 5. #2 Konfirmasjonskort og Tutorial Konfirmasjonskort med kredittkortløsning som pengelomme. Jeg har et metalletui til kredittkort og derfra har jeg hentet idéen til denne pengelommen. Du finner en trinn for trinn forklaring lenger ned på siden. Kortet ferdig pyntet. Motivet er printet ut fra PC. Søte små papirroser og den søte pyntekanten er stanset ut med Doily Lace fra Martha Stewart. Zoom... Innsiden med personlig hilsen sitat og pengelomme. Fra en annen vinkel for å vise pengelommen bedre. Rund kantene har jeg brukt Grunge Scroll og Ornamental Cirkle fra Grunge Collection. Baksiden med mitt personlige stempel. Trinn for trinn Jeg skal nå vise hvordan man lager kortet med pengelommen. Kutt kartong i str. 12x8 inch (del på 2,54 for å regne om til cm). Brettes slik. Merk av hvor lang du vil ha åpningen hvor pengene skal legges i. Bruk Word Window Punch (man kan selvsagt skjære ut med skalpell også). Bruk en sikelpunch for å lage tommelfinigergrep sånn at man lettere kan få ut pengene. Slik skal den bli. Klem fra Anita

Boot cuffs Grey Gray Marble by KittyDune Read It and Weep - 16 Repurposed and Recycled Books Okay, just shoot me now and put me out of my misery! Will I never achieve such creative genius as this? Time to read it and weep...not the ugly cry - it's a happy sob (sigh)! Like this painting on a wall of books! This work is a jaw-dropping WOW for me! There are other repurposed book finds that have also caught my attention lately. Marcy Bates with Recycled Reads (also on Etsy) used to own a book store - which may be where she fine-tuned her skills of turning books into typographical works of art. I'm a huge fan of using book pages for art and illustration - and one of my favorite in this genre is Carambatack Design out of Norway. This is definitely something I would carry! You might remember these perfect little repurposed book shelves that I featured in the Repurposed DIY for Everyone post. Favorite places? You really must see the work of Littlefly to believe it. I'm also lovin' the use of books in the McNally Jackson Books bookstore (via Inhabitat). Stumble this post

DIY Paper Fruit Basket Yes, you may remember our Easter Basket post. It seemed to be a hit, so much so that we had to create a version two with a summer twist. This basket, again made from a recycled, upcycled paper grocery bag, is a bit taller and without the handle, but could be a template for many other versions. Though it is a natural fit for a fruit basket, this upcycled creation could be used in many ways; a gift basket of cookies, a flower basket, a basket to organize your desk. What a perfect use for your paper grocery bags!
