How to Make Clothing Buttons from Shrink Plastic… This tutorial is an old one of mine that’s too good not to share again. Since posting the first time, I’ve had lots of questions about these buttons which will hopefully be answered in this revised post. Equipment Some handy notes: 1. The buttons. single hole, hole punch (like this one here). 2. 3. Okay.. lets get started! Tracing tips: You can use either coloured pencils or permanent pens. Words must be writted backwards in order to be readable. Shrinking the buttons: To shrink the buttons, you can use an oven or a heat gun (the kind used for embellishing). After the buttons have twisted and twirled, and are LYING FLAT, it’s time to take them out. Note: If the skrinking is taking too long, you may need to turn your oven up. Here’s a short little stop-motion to make sure you’ve got the gist of how easy this is! Shrink Paper {here} Circle Punch {here} Hole punch {here} Pens {here} Update: I’ve made a video to show how to shrink the buttons using a craft embellishment heat gun. Kimanh

Tiny Polaroid Magnets | { Ambrosia Creative } Hi there! It’s felt like forever since I’ve last blogged, and has felt like an eternity since I’ve done anything crafty and nifty. Since my morning sickness has gone into full speed (yes, we’re expecting our third this fall!) I haven’t felt like myself.

I came across these DIY Pantone chip magnets on How About Orange and wanted to do something similar. You will need: Cardboard (mine was the backing of a sketchbook — much thicker than the back of a regular spiral bound notebook) or 2-3 sheets of white cardstock or poster board spray-mounted together to use as a sturdy backing to the magnetsOpaque white marker (necessary only if your cardboard is not white) Craft knife Metal straight edge/ruler Clear packing tape or frisk film. Step 1: Download a Photoshop file of the Polaroid frames below. Step 2: Print out photos onto photo paper. Step 4: Trim out photos with craft knife. 487 Comments

ADVENTURES IN FASHION: {DIY} Pierre Hardy Inspired Eye Heels When I first saw these Pierre Hardy heels a few weeks back, I nearly lost my mind... I mean seriously, just look at them! But with a price tag upwards of $1000, I decided to try my hand at DIY instead (pffft, can you blame me?). All it took were a few clips and — my personal favourite — some Shrinky Dinks, and I was in business! Not quite as nice as the original, but hey, gotta love a bargain, right? Start by drawing an eye onto a scrap piece of paper as a guide, making sure it's about three times the size you want it to ultimately be. Now comes the fun part — painting those bad boys! When everything is nice and dry, glue your shoe clips onto the back of each plastic eye, pressing firmly to secure. Tip: To make the eyes flirty and Pierre Hardy-esque, be sure to tilt them upwards before securing the clips to the backs. And that's it! { I added mine to some strappy Forever 21 sandals...
