Tiny Polaroid Magnets | { Ambrosia Girl } 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 3: Spray the back of your sheet of photos and also the cardboard with spray mount. Step 4: Trim out photos with craft knife. 487 Comments

Make flowers from crepe paper Ages ago I bought a package of crepe paper (like this—the folded sheets, not streamers). An impulse purchase simply because... it was orange? The other day I finally made some flowers with it while watching way too much HGTV. These will be nice gift toppers, or maybe I'll do more and make a wreath. Materials: Sheet of crepe paper Small piece of cardstock Scissors Glue (I used Aleene's Tacky Glue) Toothpick Cut 12 circles from a sheet of crepe paper, any size you like depending on how big you want the final flower to be. Orient each petal so the grain in the paper runs vertically. Cut out a small circle of cardstock (about the same size as the petals before you shaped them.) To make a center for the flower, cut a small strip of crepe paper and fold it in half.

Crochet | The Girl by the Sea Use It Up….. One of the projects I’ve been working on this year is to use it up, in particular, wool. Not that I have a huge stash to begin with, my yarn for the most part fits in one basket, but in order to appreciate what I have and save a few pennies at the same time I have decided to use up all the yarn I have before purchasing any more. About half of what I have had been given to me, so there were a lot of odd skeins without exact yardage. This has been a great motivator as well, I have already gotten a gift for a friend done, using a chart as well. I’m also hoping that at the end of it all I will have a nice little stash of scraps for a granny square blanket. Valentine Garland Winners! I do love a good giveaway and as I made three heart garlands I figured I’d better give them all away.

Braided Hex Nut Necklace Hey crafties! I hope you enjoyed your day- it was too gorgeous outside not to! So as I promised yesterday, today I'm revealing the present I made my sister for her birthday yesterday, and she actually liked it, or at least said she did, so I think you will too. I saw this tutorial for a hex nut bracelet last week from Erica at Honestly WTF and thought it would be perfect for Aziza. So I tried the bracelet and loveddd the effect, but I thought it might be even cooler as a necklace! Materials: 6 strands of hemp or twine at about 29 inches long each 56 small hex nuts - I used silver because there was a $3 pack of 100 at Home Depot. How To:What you'll do is do two separate sides- braid each side with three strands and then braid them together.1. 3. 6. I love this technique! This is such a quick and easy gift, and you could even pair it with a matching bracelet or other necklaces to get that fashionable, sparkly, layered look... or you could just keep it for yourself ;) Inappreciative.
