Build 3D Paper Letters From A Nifty Font

Build 3D Paper Letters From A Nifty Font
Speaking of Fontstruct, I found something cool over there. Punched Out is a free font that allows you to type letters, print, cut, fold, and glue to make 3D forms. Created by Tobias Sommer, it's available for download at Dafont or Fontstruct. I gave it a try while watching TV. It's a little tedious, but the result is fun! I printed the letters in gray, scored along the center of the dashed lines, and folded so that the printing ended up on the inside of each letter.

Yusuke Oono: 360 Degree Christmas Book Panorama Stunning 360 degree christmas book panorama by Japanese artist yusuke oono… Yusuke Oono | via Spoon & Tamago Magnifique livre de Noël panorama à 360 degrés par l’artiste japonais Yusuke Oono… Paper flower tutorial I thought some of you would enjoy a quick tutorial on how to make those little paper flowers I used as part of my table setting a couple weeks ago. The credit for these go to Martha Stewart (I saw this idea nearly 10 years ago in her magazine, but haven't been able to find it on her website). So here I go.. Step 1: Draw a spiral on a 4x4" square sheet of paper Step 2: Cut out spiral along lines you have drawn Step 3: Begin rolling up the spiral from the outside Step 4: Keep on rolling until there's no more left to roll Step 5: You're done! I used a slightly heavier weight paper for this one, but you can use normal paper as well. Note: You may use a bit of glue or double-stick tape to keep the flower from unrolling and loosening up with time.

Paper Starburst Pendant Light So I had a different project that I was going to post today, an update version of my Book Pages Pendant Lantern from Project 19, but then I started working on this light idea, and I am so excited by the results I just couldn’t wait to show you guys! My inspiration and guide was this light from Design*Sponge, that I spotted on Pinterest. I really liked the idea, and I had a roll of white vellum lying around left over from college that I thought would look beautiful. So I started cutting triangles. The roll of vellum that I was using was 24 inches long. I think I glued the pieces on much closer than they did in the Design*Sponge tutorial, but I wanted a really full look. All in all I think the light is pretty awesome, and I can’t wait to post it on Etsy, though I’m a little bit worried about shipping. So I know I need to get back to my 30x30x3 projects, but this light took me by surprise with its shape and fantastic outcome, and I just couldn’t wait to share! Ciao, Allison Like this:

Word Grab with Songs Level: Any Level This is a wonderful activity if you think your class needs waking up a little. Is Your Conversation Style Feminine or Masculine? Level: Medium The following activity is loosely based on Conversation Analysis readings, so nothing is hard and fast doctrine. If nothing else, it should generate chat. Put yes (Y) or no (N) for the sentences below. Generally speaking, when I converse with people I know: 4, 6, 8, 9, 12, 14, 16, 18 and 21 would be more feminine traits-generally speaking The rest, male. Once again, the activity should not give rise to aggressive exchanges. A Conversation Idea - Rate the Apparatus Activity A The many household apparatus/machines/gadgets we use at home make life a little bit easier; the micro-wave oven heats things up quickly; the fridge keeps perishable goods fresh; the washing-machine cleans our clothes and saves us time.

1000 Paper Cranes Backdrop A few weeks ago I introduced you to one of my lovely Brides Laura who was new to the Diary of a Boho Bride feature. You can read all about Laura’s wedding plans HERE . In Laura’s’ introduction I explained that she is a BIG fan of the old DIY and after a few emails and a few sneaky pictures of stuff she had already created, it was clear that she was an even bigger fan of DIY than I first thought. With this in mind I asked is she fancied putting a few posts together for the Blog and she quite happily agreed. So a few weeks ago Laura came armed with a whole host of goodies to my house and we were joined by Jess from Jess Petrie photography who documented the whole thing. (she also took some rather cute pictures fo Dee) We had a great time and I then got to see a few more secret projects that Laura has planned. So here is the first fo Laura’s DIY tutorials, and for me the best one……….and yes she made all of those paper cranes herself, and threaded them altogether! 1000 paper cranes backdrop
