The Technique Zone: Acrylic Paint Transfer - StumbleUpon
Supplies needed: Acrylic dabbers, photocopy of an image, water spritzer bottle, paintbrush, card stock, craft sheet and heat tool (optional) Take the lid off the dabbers and brush the paint onto the card stock, ensure you get a good coverage Take your photocopied image ( remember that you will get a reverse of the image, so don't use bold words), flip it over and place it in the acrylic. Lightly press it down making sure it's smooth and not wrinkled Leave to air dry for at least 15 minutes and then if you wish give it a blast with the heat tool Only move onto this step when you are sure your paint is completely dryTake your water filled spritzer bottle, spray the back of the paper no more than two squirts, you don't want it too wet Next start to rub the paper very gently with your finger Keep rubbing and extra spritzing if you need too Eventually you will get rid of all the paper, but it does take a bit of patience as you have to be careful not to wet it too much and rub the image away

How to Make Leaf Skeletons - The Idea Room - StumbleUpon I wanted to share with you a project from one of my readers who shares with us how to make leaf skeletons. I LOVE this! I have several leafs in various forms displayed in my home and knew I needed to make some of her leaf skeletons to add to my decor. Gave That: Origami Star Ornaments : Gift Of Giving These are addictive to make... these Origami star ornaments are the blue Damask velum version of my previous ones (see here). The translucent velum really comes to life when lit from behind via the tree lights. Snowflake punches and tiny gems dot the centers and these work as gift bows as well. For how to make these see my step by step video here.

Shoe Box Theater This is a favorite with teachers and students. It is a low cost project that it fun to make and the final results are magical. I have been making shoe box theaters since I was a young kid and enjoyed making zoos and pet shops and fairy land scenes.

T-Shirt "Yarn" Tutorial I know what you’re thinking–you’re thinking, “t-shirt what?” You heard me. I said, T-shirt yarn. Get a load of this… Hey...Things Change!: DIY: Paint Chip Calendar *New and improved version of the Paint Chip Calendar is right here. Yesterday, while perusing some of my favorite blogs, I found this great DIY calendar idea from Design Mom. It got me thinking about a project I had put on the back burner for a while and it also reminded me that I have yet to purchase a 2011 calendar and here it is March! So I took my back burner idea involving paint chips and combined it with a DIY calendar and created my own mash up: a DIY Paint Chip Calendar. Supplies: paint chips, glue, white paper…I used a Crayola floor pad. I chose the floor pad because the top is hooked together with a strip of gluey stuff, making it easy to tear off each calendar page as the month ended while still holding the rest of the calendar together.

DIY Hollow Out A Light Bulb at TeamDroid When I was growing up I had a keen interest in the sciences. Mostly because of the cool gear that scientists used, you know, beakers, flasks, Bunsen burners that sort of thing. Well, not only did I not have the money for those sorts of thing but I had no idea where to even buy them if I could. So I had to improvise. One of the better improvisations I was able to do was to hollow out a light bulb and use it for other things. The glass that makes the envelope of the build is quite heat resistant and the screw base is good to attach things to (even better if you can find old ones with brass bases, you can solder to those).

Quilled Snowflake Ornament - Reese Dixon Today I have a big fat tutorial to share with you. It looks really really scary and detailed, but it’s not so bad. Trust me. Habitat Craft © by Leanne Guenther Tasha's daycare made this craft one day in spring. They seemed to have a good time and Tasha came home talking about the habitats of a variety of different animals. I was actually quite impressed with how much they had learned while working on these crafts. I'll start out with instructions for the habitat Tasha made and then give some thoughts at the end on different habitats you might make. (Keep in mind, there's no template to print out with this project).

The 30 Minute $6 Dress Tutorial Guest post by Rachael at Talk 2 the Trees. The perfect dress is hard to come by. I like my dresses to be cheap, and long enough. (I’m not a fan of super short dresses!) Cheap and long dresses don’t seem to go hand in hand.. so, if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself!
