Bow tie paper clips from fabric scraps I had a couple little scraps left over from stiffened fabric projects, and after fiddling with them, I noticed they'd easily make tiny bows. Which I attached to paper clips because... I don't know why. I used fabric scraps, stiffener, large paper clips, a scissors, an iron, twist ties (or wire), and a hot glue gun. Apply stiffener to your scraps (learn more here) and iron them flat. Form the longest strip into a loop, overlapping the ends generously. Pinch the "tail" strip in the center the same way. Then attach the bow to the tails using a piece of wire. Use the tiny remaining strip of fabric to attach the bow to the paper clip. Trim the tails to the length you like.

Art Journaling: Supplies I know a lot of people who list journaling as something they'd like to do. Sometimes it is even a New Year's resolution. These same people usually talk, at length of how they started out pretty well, but eventually puttered out. Maybe "dear diary" journal writing just isn't your style! With one successful series behind me (on embroidery techniques) I have decided that March will be the month of the art journal! I have compiled this little list of supplies that you may want so you can follow along in March with all the great journal ideas I have for you! To start, you will need the journal itself. Next, and especially if you have had trouble sticking to any kind of journaling in the past, find supplies that make you WANT to journal. I also typically have gel pens in several colors around the house, I love the way they feel in my hand when I write, so I want to write a lot! Pick out at least one art or craft supply that you have never used before but would like to try.

page corner bookmarks | I Could Make That 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. 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. If you like this tutorial, here are a couple others that might be up your alley. If you’re loving the toothy monster vibe, check out these simple monster heating bags, filled with rice or wheat and entirely microwavable, to keep toes or fingers or tummies warm during the chilly winter months. What you’ll need: Putting it all together: 1) Follow steps 2 and 3 from above.

DIY Fri: Map Card and Envelope This two-piece stationary set is the perfect kitschy DIY project for the end of summer. You can make this for someone going on an out of town excursion, for your own travels, or to give with a present. I made a couple just 'cause they're cute! Materials: -An Old Envelope and Card -Map(s) or Atlas -Pencil or Pen -Scissors -Glue Stick -1 Piece Of Card Stock or Construction Paper Open up the old envelope. Trace the outline of the envelope on to your map or atlas page. Cut the outline of your envelope until you have a duplicate, but in the map paper. Glue the back side of the piece you just cut out to another piece of the map/atlas. Cut out the envelope shape again following the edges of the piece you glued on. Fold and crease the edges of the envelope inwards. Apply glue to the edge of the piece that will be folded up in the middle, connecting the sides to form the bottom of the envelope. Lay the side pieces on top of the edge you just glued. Fold the card in half and crease the middle. Tada!

8 Cute DIY Bookmark Ideas | Good Life Eats - StumbleUpon bookmarks | 26 comments I don’t really use real bookmarks. I’m not sure why. They’re not expensive, or hard to make, but I tend to just pick up whatever to mark my pages. (For those curious, I finished A Million Suns a couple days later and really enjoyed it! I’ve been eye-ing lots of super cute DIY bookmarks for the last few months that I’ve seen pop up around the web. The problem is, often my bookmarks fall out and I lose my page. I’m definitely going to keep these in mind for future gift giving opportunities after I’ve made a couple for our use at home. 8 Cute DIY Bookmark Ideas Bow Tie Paper Clips Using Fabric Scraps from How About Orange.
