Water Blob: Tutorial A few weeks ago I saw this idea for water blobs floating around online and decided to try it ourselves the next time we were having friends over to play. Can I just say that this “water blob” was amazing amounts of fun. I layed on it, the kids jumped on it, slid across it and spent the entire day doing all sorts of crazy acrobatics. So what is a “water blob” and how do you make one? How do you make one? Fold the plastic sheeting in half and tape the three open sides with duct tape (it helps to have assistance) but leave open a small hole for the water hose. Put the water hose in it and let it fill. It is that simple and that fun. It did get a few small leaks on the edges throughout the day but we simply fixed them by applying more tape to the leaky spot. So go conquer the blob! Edited to Add: You MUST use heavy plastic sheeting. Don’t forget to follow along for more summer fun! Bobbie Bobbie is a homeschooling mom of three girls in the Houston area.

2502 Mayi Carles Make Your Own Bubble Jet–Printing on Fabric Swapping blogs with one of my favorites…Beckie from Infarrantly Creative. You can find me there today…but first you will LOVE what she has for you today! Take it away Beckie… Hello Idea Room readers! Today I am going to share with you how to make your own custom bean bags. Did you know you don’t have to buy those fancy schmancy fabric printer sheets to have quality printed fabric? Mix 2 tablespoons of Alum (found in the spice section of your grocery store), 2 1/2 teaspoons of Washing Soda (found in the laundry section) and 1/2 teaspoon of liquid fabric softener. Mix it in a bowl bigger than you think because it foams up when you add the water. After fifteen minutes is up wring out all the excess liquid. Wait!!! Store the remaining solution in a container and mark it well to use at a later date. Next dry your fabric. Next grab some freezer paper (found near the tin foil and Ziploc bag section) and iron your fabric to the shiny side of the freezer paper with a hot, dry iron. 1860stumbleupon

Photography is everything when trying to capture a tutorial for your readers, or make your products look desirable on And what's the most important part? Lighting! Follow this little tutorial to make your own Photo Light Box for the perfect lighting. Cut a border of 2 inches on each side of the tri-fold display board (the two sides and the back).
