Cute Bookmarks
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. Old receipts, scraps of paper, a pencil, etc. But I don’t ever dog ear 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 could probably do three weeks of flowers because there are so many different ways to create them, but I’ve limited it to five of my current favorites. Before we get started, let me make a few disclaimers: 1. I find inspiration for projects all over the place {online, in shops, in magazines}, then figure out how to re-create them on my own. Each of these projects are my adaptation of something I’ve seen elsewhere.

felt-dahlia-flower I’ve been wanting to make more of these flowers ever since I made one a few months ago, but my plans always fell by the wayside. (along the wayside are also my plans for world domination and the best chocolate chip cookie recipe in the world, but what can you do?) When I asked Sadie if she liked this flower, she said,”yeah…? It’s a circle.”

creative little daisy: Have you priced vintage blue canning jars lately? Wanna make your own really cheap? I bought these probably five years ago at an antique/consignment store. I think I paid about 12 dollars for a set of four. Now you can expect to pay at least that for just one. Last night I was cruising around the internet and happened upon a link to a tutorial using mod podge and food coloring to make your own. WD-40 Uses WD-40 has far more uses than just on squeaky hinges. Find out the amazing ways this garage staple can make your life easier. from Extraordinary Uses for Ordinary Things Loading 1.

It’s available to purchase exclusively through Barnes and Noble. Front of box I was hoping that I’d be able to sell signed copies through my website, but it turns out that the shipping costs for me to receive author copies from the US make that an impossible dream.

sewing 101: making a pouf Add a burst of color to your room with this crafty pouf! At 17” wide and 10” deep, it’s large enough to serve as floor seating or a foot stool. (And if you have pets, I have a feeling they may want to make this their new favorite spot!) This project is a little challenging to sew, but it’s not too difficult, so if you’re comfortable with the basics of sewing, give it a try. You can make a colorwheel effect with a range of solid colors, or choose a variety of patterned fabrics for a louder patchwork effect. Medium-weight cottons work well for this design (check out quilting shops for great selections of solids and prints).

How to make Paper Clay I fell in love with sculpting with paper mache during my first project five years ago. However, I never really found a recipe that was worth the time and effort and mess that it took to get what I wanted. As a result, I used Celluclay for most projects. However, I recently stumbled upon an incredible blog called, Ultimate Paper Mache where Jonni (the artist and blogger) shares all sorts of tips, tutorials and recipes to help anyone on their way to successfully paper mache-ing. I am blown away by what Jonni can create, but I was especially grateful for the recipe she shared on how to make your own paper mache clay.
