Tutorial Tuesday - Button Bracelets

Tutorial Tuesday - Button Bracelets
Tutorial Tuesday - Button Bracelets My girlfriend came over to refill my estrogen reserves last week, and brought with her a fantastic craft for us to do together while chatting, laughing, gossiping and catching up after her long vacation. One third of the way through summer vacation with three boys, she knew just what I needed. She brought over a bunch of stuff for us to sit down and make our own button bracelets. So fun! The greatest part was that each of our bracelets turned out differently! Do you want to join us? Materials: Buttons in various sizes (test to be sure your cord will fit into the holes)Round leather or coated cotton cord (1 mm in diameter) Instructions: Arrange your buttons ahead of time to lay out your pattern Begin with a length of cord about 18 inches long (you will adjust this to fit at the end, but cutting it too short will result in frustration and some swearing...trust me, I know). Fold your cord in half and tie a knot in the looped end, like this: Now, go crazy!

How to make gift bags from newspaper When I bought something at a store recently, the clerk handed me my purchase in a bag made from a newspaper. I liked it very much and had to make some more—thus today's DIY recycled newspaper project: gift bags made from the Wall Street Journal. You can vary the dimensions, of course, but here's what I used to create a bag that's 5" tall, 4.5" wide, and 3" deep.

Original Fridays #16 unOriginal Mom Happy Friday, everybody! I don’t know about you, but here in central PA it is an absolutely picture perfect day. Sunny blue skies, low humidity, and about 75 degrees. I wish we could bottle up this weather and keep it all year long! It’s been a few weeks since my last “Original Friday” post…things have been a little crazy around here! Embellish a Card with Felted Shells - Quilting Daily It's summer here, and if you're lucky enough to live near the ocean, you can find plenty of artistic inspiration from the landscape, the wildlife, and the found objects. Shells hold a particular fascination for many fiber and mixed-media artists. You can use found shells to embellish an art quilt. Or the colors, textures, patterns, and matte or iridescent surfaces of shells can be interpreted in fabric, surface design, beadwork, and fibers. I never would have thought of using needle-felting to create shell art, but when I saw Deborah Wolff's Felted Seashell Cards in the July/August 2013 issue of our sister publication Cloth Paper Scissors, I thought, "What a great idea."

Об этом много написано. Оказывается, уже в третьем тысячелетии до нашей эры люди задумывались о застегивании одежды. Поделки их пуговиц Здравствуйте! Заканчивая пуговичную тему хочу отдельно рассказать про поделки из пуговиц для детей. Их можно разделить на несколько типов. С самыми маленькими малышами можно играть пуговицами выкладывая из них (стрекозу, цветочки и т.п.) или украшая картонные заготовки. С картонными заготовками вы можете дать волю своей фантазии и вырезать любую фигуру — от елки и машинки, до бабочек и кисок. Крепить пуовицы можно как на клей, так и с помощью пластилина.
