How to Make 6-Pointed Paper Snowflakes

How to Make 6-Pointed Paper Snowflakes
This step by step guide will teach you how to make SIX pointed paper snowflakes. Most people make (and most how-tos teach) snowflakes with four or eight points. Real snowflakes in nature form with six points (or occasionally three if they formed weird) so I choose to make my own with six points. Be sure that you follow each step carefully. Each step is one fold, but some steps have two pictures shown to help explain things, so please read the description underneath. doesn't always show all of the steps on one page, so hit "next" to go on to the next step. All you will need for this is paper and scissors. If you want to view a gallery of my snowflakes, see me on Flickr: Paper Snowflake Gallery. Remember to rate this Instructable!

Dog of the Day - Every day a new dog photo and story Pochette au crochet Depuis le temps que je voulais crocheter des sacs... J'ai repéré une foule de modèles sympas, que je prévois d'adapter à ma manière (je suis presque incapable de suivre scrupuleusement un modèle, il faut toujours que je mette ma touche personnelle) Commençons modestement par une pochette crochetée d'une seule pièce et fermée par un bouton rouge. Point de vue dimensions, on peut adapter à ses besoins. Fournitures et matériel : 150 g de Coton fifty de Bergère de France travaillé en doublequelques g de coton rouge pour le boutonun bouton plat (un vieux bouton moche fait très bien l'affaire, puisqu'il est recouvert)un crochet n°3,5 et un crochet n° 3Réalisation : On commence par le fond du sac, réalisé avec le crochet 3,5. Pour le bouton, on adapte la taille en fonction du bouton à recouvrir, et on travaille en cercle, comme pour les amigurumis. Arrêter l'ouvrage, rentrer les fils, et coudre le bouton au centre de la face avant.

Tutorials for Recycling T-Shirts So way way back, in June, I wrote this Studio Organization post, about starting the process of organizing my studio by cleaning out the closet full of junk. Well, it's September and...let's just say the closet is a work in progress. Some of the things that are taking up space in the closet are shirts that I never wear anymore. I realized I could repurpose them into something else! Here are some tutorials for recycling shirts: Check out these t-shirt scarves! Create cute little bows for accessories or packaging with this tutorial. Gorgeous ruffled pillow tutorial here. Looks like I have a lot of projects ahead of me to keep me from cleaning out my closet!

Mitaines au crochet Pour aller avec le Japanese Vines Shawl, avec la même laine (Adriafil AvantGarde) mais au crochet car trop juste niveau temps pour faire des mitaines au tricot en utilisant le motif du châle (c'est prévu Maman m'a demandé "euh c'est possible d'en avoir avec le même motif ?" "C'est deux mois de boulot mais oui Maman").To go with the Japanese Vines Shawl, with the same yarn (Adriafil AvantGarde) but crocheted because was too short in time to knit mitts using the shawl pattern (It's planned, Mum asked me "hum, is it possible to have ones with the same pattern ?" "It's two months work but yes Mummy"). La qualité des photos est toujours nulle comme aussi prises à la dernière minute :-( Pour ma maman toujours, qui a les mains un peu plus grandes que les miennes (donc normal que cela flotte sur mes petites mains)Pictures quality is still awfull since also taken at last minute :-(Also for Mum, whom hands are a little bigger (so the very positive ease on my small hands is normal)

Shoe Makeover I love the simple, carefree style of laceless tennis shoes, especially in the summer. They're the best shoes to slip on before running errands, shopping, being outside, or really anything. I've been drooling over these Keds for a while now... However $50 for one pair of shoes really isn't in my budget. So when I saw plain white Keds knock offs at Walmart for only $5 , I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Materials Needed: Plain White or Off White Tennis Shoes (Walmart has them for $5 and Target has them for $9)RIT or other brand Fabric Dye1.5 " wide ElasticStrong Needle and Thread (in coordinating color) Although I love the muted colors that Keds sells. First take out the laces In a large pot Boil your water. Rinse your shoes off in the sink with hot water When your water is boiling, turn it down to more of a simmer and add your dye. Let them sit, stirring them around every once in a while, for about 10 minutes or until they reach your desired shade. Here's how mine looked once dry: Shoes- $5

Origami Roses The sight of these classy chocolate roses got me into a serious mood to make roses, paperwise that is. And I ended up making 3 different kinds cos’ they look so beautiful that I couldn’t wait to learn to make them all! 1. Kawasaki rose I first tried the Kawasaki rose, named after its creator Toshikazu Kawasaki, by following this demo and cross referenced with another demo [part 2|3]. Notes: There were several steps I had no idea what to do, so after some struggling and hair-pulling, I finally figured out what was going on EXACTLY! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 2. I watched this demo to make the Bird base rose created by James Sakoda. 3. 3. Followed this demo to make this rose bud. Both centre creases must be well-creased mountain folds, so that the folding up of each quarter will be easier. The real beauty of all these three roses is they are not too complicated to make once every step is laid out clearly and every intended fold well-creased.

Watermark Tee by Sweet Verbana Hello U-Create readers! I am so excited to be guest posting here today.
