Un faire-part en origami La recherche du faire-part de mariage est souvent laborieuse, beaucoup de choix, des choses trop simples, d’autres trop sophistiquées et on finit par s’y perdre. Plusieurs d’entre vous m’ont demandé des idées de faire-part à faire soi-même et en voici une : un coeur en origami qui fait aussi décoration! Le coeur n’est pas super facile à réaliser mais une fois que vous maîtriserez la technique ça ira beaucoup mieux!

Il vous suffit alors de glisser ce faire-part de mariage original dans un petit sachet en calque (fermé par 2 coutures sur le côté) et de glisser le tout dans une jolie enveloppe en kraft . Bon désormais, passons aux choses sérieuses : comment fait-on? Matériel :

Majordomes |  Make my lemonade Jumpsuit Anna Studio, Tshirt Yazbukey, jacket April May. My chestnuts, my kitties, my butter biscuits, my birdies… Okay, I don’t know how many times I tried to write this articles… Last month, Make My Lemonade turned 2… And I think you realized my life is quite « out of control » lately… but TWO YEARS OLD !!! Do you realize how fast it went ? Two years in a infernal hurly-burly of love, hard work, amazing encounters, princesses’ trip, crazy collaborations, and a book… And soon more will come! Sometime, I think about my life before the blog and the person I was (and still am hopefully… But it’s undeniable that I’ve changed) and even though all this is just an URL address, a website within the immensity of the internet, well I’m fulfilled because you and me we found each other.

Vie de Miettes » DIY : une saint valentin parfaite ! Il y a quelques semaines, Clara m’a envoyé un petit mail pour un partenariat avec Yse. J’ai un peu sautillé partout après sa lecture. Yse, c’est un peu le site parfait. J’aime beaucoup Yse, parce que le concept est avant tout enthousiaste, créatif et joyeux. Je vous propose de télécharger un kit à imprimer pour la Saint Valentin. Dites, vous avez prévu quoi pour la Saint Valentin ? Tutorial about My Papercut on Polymer Clay Technique. Trace your design on paper. The paper I use is Strathmore Bristol smooth 260 g/m2, 300 series. You can buy the same paper in tiny size if you're not planning to use lots of it. Cut out your design using a #11 X-Acto knife or your favorite knife. I recommend that you apply baby powder all over the papercut so it doesn't stick to the polymer clay later on. Prepare a flat sheet of polymer clay with the thickness of your preference. Carefully place the papercut on the polymer clay sheet. Now apply pressure using a roller or any similar tool until the papercut and the polymer clay form an even surface. Step 7: Lift the papercut carefully using a needle to reveal the embossed design. Here is the magic unveiled. After removing the papercut I cut around the circle of this cameo using an X-Acto knife. You're free to finish the piece as you want. 1. 2. 3. 4. I hope that this simple tutorial opens up a door for you to explore the endless possibilities of this technique. Let's have fun! Elsita :)

Bö Graphik | bö graphik by Haska MAGAZINE ENVELOPES 18K+ Well I got this idea from our friend Nina. She was making these super cute envelopes out of scrapbook paper and I really wanted to make some! So I came home and made some! You will need: An old magazine, scissors, an envelope, a glue stick and a Sharpie. Tear out some magazine pages that you like. Carefully pull the envelope apart. Trace the envelope on a magazine page. Cut the envelope shape out. Turn the envelope over as well as the magazine cut-out. Unfold everything and separate the magazine cut-out from the envelope. Glue the bottom flap down to the two side flaps. And you've made your own envelope! The great thing about making these envelopes our of magazine pages is that the envelopes have a character all of their own.
