My Paper Crane Here it is nearing the end of April and I forgot to blog about the Bag Of The Month bag for March! As you can see I ended up having a sad photoshoot in my car one afternoon while I was waiting to pick up my son after school. I have actually been using this bag all month long. The fabric was one I saw on Pinterest and fell in love with Ring Around The Rosie by Michael Miller. When I found it about a year ago it had already been out for awhile, but a search of the name and there are still plenty of shops that have it for sale. DIY Magazine Envelopes As promised, here is a tutorial on making your own envelopes for stationery sets. While this template makes a rectangular envelope, you could certainly modify it to make squares as well, and as usual this image is scalable (the actual jpg is quite small, I printed it at 250% to make the cute envelopes shown in the tutorial--I just like cutesy small stuff, my original envelopes were much larger). To make these envelopes you will need: Paper or magazine pages of your choosing. scissors or an X-Acto knife a ruler Envelope template (below) glue (elmer's or glue sticks work just fine--if you do not have glue, you can go without and use stickers to close your envelope as well) Start by printing the following template to your desired size: Cut out your template and trace it onto your paper of choice.
Gift Ideas for poor creative souls (6) You know how it goes, a friend calls you and invites you to dinner at the last minute. OMG! What gift can you take?! You scrabble around the cupboards trying to find a box of chocolates or a bottle of wine but find that most of the chocolates have been eaten and the wine has gone. D.I.Y. Instagram Calendar As you know, I've made it my New Year's goal to complete 52 crafts projects in 2012. Just simple and fun projects to use for my home, get organized, to wear and sometimes to give as gifts. Even though it's not quite yet the new year, I decided to go ahead and get rolling! As part of my mother's Christmas present I decided to make her a calendar for 2012 that featured a different picture of my dog for each month (she's just about as crazy for my dog as I am!). I used instagram photos c/o Postal Pix. Supplies needed: 12 subject images (I used instagram pictures of my dog), plain poster board, a mini calendar (or you can create your own calendar pages), scissors, glue, yarn and decorative paper for the cover (I used silver glitter craft paper).
marble magnets I finally gave in and made marble magnets. Not surprisingly they are quite fun, smooshing the glue out to make a perfect little magnified image is very satisfying. Here, in order of appearance, are the places I referenced: paper candy instructions with pictures (this is the first place I saw this project) dogmestic with instructions and pictures photogeek pictures ugly green chair cute ladybug magnets – pictures with packaging threads at Glitter:onetwothree I bought all of these supplies at Michael’s, including the glue I went back for since I got the wrong kind to start with. I bought 1/2″ and 3/4″ round (strong) magnets (in with the frames, near the corks); 1/2″ and 3/4″ clear flat glass marbles (in the fake flowers aisle, check the mosaics section too); silicon sealer made by the Crazy Glue people (in the glue aisle).
page corner bookmarks This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads.
