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.

page corner bookmarks 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.

pochettes page de livre Ett av mina mest lästa och mest kommenterade blogginlägg sedan starten hösten 2011 handlar om hur man viker egna kalaspåsar. Fler än jag verka tycka att det är roligare och mer prisvärt att göra egna påsar istället för att köpa färdiga. Det var just denna teknik jag använde när jag vek dessa presentpåsar av ett gammalt loppisfyndat lexikon. Klicka här för att läsa vik-beskrivningen. För att piffa upp påsarna lite extra stämplade jag på boksidorna med silikonstämplar/clear stamps på akrylblock och en svart stämpeldyna. For decoration I stamped the book pages with silicon stamps on acrylic blocks and a black ink pad. För att försegla påsarna vek jag ner kanten och klämde dit miniklädnypor (25 mm). Storleken på påsarna beror förstås på storleken på boksidorna.

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.

Inred med böcker – Decorate with books För två år sedan gjorde vi om ett av sovrummen till bibliotek. När alla böcker skulle upp i hyllorna kändes det enklare att placera dem i färgordning istället för i bokstavsordning. Jag tycker att det ger ett mer harmoniskt intryck och det är många som hajar till när de kommer in i biblioteket. En del tycker vi är helt galna, andra tycker att det är en kul grej. Den platsbyggda barnbokshyllan har vi snickrat ihop själva och vi utgick från en ritning vi hittade i en gammal inredningstidning. Fler tips på hur man kan inreda med böcker:More inspiration on how to decorate with books: 1. 4. 7. 10. Carambola Flowers by Carmen Sprung If you’ve been following me on Flickr for a while, you’ve probably seen this picture of Carambola Flowers before – I folded them ages ago! But since my Pro account is going to expire in a few days time (and I don’t feel like upgrading it again), a lot of my old photos won’t be displayed anymore. So I decided it would be a good idea to share the very best of them on my blog! These absolutely beautiful origami flowers were designed by Carmen Sprung and I just love them!
