Today's crafts, paper tree - Craft of the Day, paper Christmas tree
Det finns lite olika varianter på den här idén har jag sett (se t ex Ellas Inspiration, @ Down Under, Martha Stewart och Fru Fly). Mina pappergranar gjorde jag med hjälp av pepparkaksmått. Ett perfekt pyssel att göra tillsammans med barn. En idé är att skriva namn på stjärnorna och använda granarna som placeringskort vid julmiddagen. / I’ve seen some variations on this theme online (see for example Ellas inspiration, @ Down Under, Martha Stewart and Fru Fly). Jag använde mig av min skärmatta, placerade pepparkaksformen ovanpå papperet bankade lite med en hammare för att markera formen. I used my cutting mat, placed the cookie cutter on top of the paper and pounded a bit with a hammer to mark the shape of the tree. Klipp eller skär ut en liten stjärna i gult eller vitt papper och skär en liten skåra i ena stjärnspetsen. / Cut out a small star in yellow or white paper and make a score in one of the points. Trä granarna i varandra och placera stjärnan i topp.

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. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks. Placeholders special enough for the books that are special enough to remain in your culled-out-of-spacial-necessity collection. Page corner bookmarks are cute, practical and deeply under-represented in the world.* They’re easy to make, easy to customize, and will set you apart from all those same-same flat rectangular bookmarks.

Ribbon Candy Ornaments I remember trying to eat ribbon candy at Christmastime when I was a kid. It was always a little too big for my mouth and didn’t really taste that great. But I ate it anyway, because it was one of those things that was only available this time of the year, which made it special. As the years passed, I got over the need to actually eat the stuff, but I still think it’s pretty. When my kids were small, we found kits to make ribbon candy ornaments from actual ribbon, thread and beads. This is my take on those, using wire instead of thread.

Adventures in garlanding « Bookity I made these map garlands as a special request for a customer and they have proved rather popular.
