Fold a heart page marker

Fold a heart page marker
I hope you’ll whip up some heart page markers to share with those around you. It’s simply too easy not to make. Here’s how: Use a square piece of paper. Fold in half. Crease. This origami model is simple but versatile because it’s also able to become a 4-leaf clover or a flower by grouping 4 together, and hide a small item (like a ring) in front or even have it stand on its own by making an easel with the back flap.


Origami Star Instructions The traditional Origami Star model is a popular and fun model to make; so try it out with some vibrant paper: maybe metallic or even sparkly paper will give a nice effect. You don't need a large sheet of paper for this model: a 10cm x 10cm square will do quite nicely.

{Valentines day} pixelated popup card I‘ve been scratching my head trying to come up with a card for my hubby {AKA the non-romantic type}. I finally decided to make this pixely popup heart card! They are really minimal (which I love) and take about 20 minutes to make (that includes the card, insert and envelope). You can even make some pixely confetti to put inside the card (if you are a big kid like me!). Full instructions and printable templates below!

Erupting Snow Recipe I am super excited to share this new sensory recipe today! Rosie had so much fun with this activity. We took our Sparkle Snow recipe and slightly altered it to get MAGIC SNOW! DIY: How to Make a Vinyl Record Notebook I love finding crafty projects using vinyl records-- from making a vinyl record purse or vinyl record bowls, I think those round slabs of plastic are incredibly fun to bend, mold, shape, and cut. About a week ago, I saw this incredible idea on Gemma's blog about how to make a vinyl record notebook and I was so excited to make it. Now, while I love using records to make crafts, my boyfriend is a huge record hipster dork. ;) (Hehe, sorry Sean!) I'm telling you-- in the many years I've known this boy, he has been such a difficult person to think up gift ideas.

A Look at Paper Quilling March is an exciting month: it’s one step closer to spring, it brings longer days with Daylight Savings, and it begins an active season of new books reaching publication. One of these books we’re so very excited to see on shelves is Quilled Flowers: A Garden of 35 Paper Projects by Alli Bartkowski. In posts to come, I look forward to giving you a peek into the book, lovely insights into the life of the book’s author, Alli Bartkowski, and some fun paper quilling giveaways (woohoo!). DIY Gold Dipped Feathers I recently spotted a set of beautiful gold dipped feathers that I thought were far overpriced – especially for something that is ridiculously easy to make with a can of trusty spray paint. These gilded feathers are the perfect holiday accessory. Hang them from your Christmas tree, string them onto a garland, use one as a present topper or display them in a vase!

TARDIS brooch - JEWELRY AND TRINKETS TARDIS brooch I made in honor of the new season coming up August 23rd (however, I'll be watching it in theaters on the 25th). Okay, so here's how I made this little doodad: Found this ugly brooch at a craft store and pried of the ugly. radical possibility: Making an Anthro-Inspired Moleskine and DIY Gift Tags As you guys probably know by now, I'm a big fan of ripping off Anthropologie. They've got cute stuff, but often its too expensive for something so frivolous. In other cases, its not even that pricey, it just looks easily DIY'd. That's what brings us to today's project, they have the Tagged Bouquet Journal.
