Stuffed animal This is actually quite a good idea! Jämälangat käyttöön! Näin teet ekologisia joulukoristeita | Kodin Kuvalehti Hauska punatulkut saat aikaan kahdella sormivärillä painamalla. Viimeistele tussilla. Onko perheessä pieniä? Leikkaa ja liimaa erilaisista papereista joulupalloja. Washi-teippi toimii aina! Yksinkertaiset kuuset syntyvät vanhaa pesusientä hyödyntämällä. Voiko lumiukkokortti enää simppelimpi ja tyylikkäämpi ollakaan? Samalla idealla voi tehdä myös humoristisia poroja. Kuusi on aiheena klassikko ja helposti muunneltavissa. Jos haluaa panostaa, voi antaa kortin mukana pienen lahjan. Lahjapaketit syntyvät muutamasta kirjavasta paperista ja pätkästä silkkinauhaa. Mukavan rouheita kuusia saa kun katsoo ympärilleen lähimetsässä. Vanhoista sanomalehdistä tulee hauskoja, erilaisia hiutaleita. Ja taas kuusi osoittaa tehonsa: näinkin simppelisti syntyy oikein jouluinen kortti!

Capture the Details: Easter egg craft - suncatchers! The kids and I made some pretty Easter egg decorations for our sliding glass door. They are super easy to make, too! You will need: crayons in pretty colors, a crayon sharpener (usually built in to the larger crayon boxes), wax paper, invisible thread, a small hole punch, an iron and old towels. I chose bright 'girly' colors for my eggs and so did Sarah. Ben chose darker 'boy' colors. Start by peeling the back end of a crayon and sharpening it onto a piece of wax paper that is on top of old towels (the crayon wax can seep through the wax paper). Let the shavings fall evenly. When you are happy with your shavings piles place a second sheet of wax paper over the top and another old towel over that. Let the paper cool - it won't take long - and then hold it up to the light to inspect your work! Create an egg template from heavy cardstock and trace the shape onto the wax paper. Here is my pile - Benny and I held them up to the light... Some close-ups..... Happy Spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!

butterflies i saw this craft after the years of different butterfly punch art and i was finally ready. i had pictures of annie painting the paper but they have disappeared. the first step is to watercolor paint on paper.paint all over with pattern or with out....less water makes for brighter colored paint.and let it dry. then punch out as many butterflies as you can. i bought this martha stewart butterfly punch at joann's.they are not cheap but it was on sale and they do have 40% off coupons quite often.and THAT punch is really cool.VERY easy to use! we used 10x10 canvases also from joann's....i wished i had bigger 20 x 20 would have been great! the girls painted them with acrylic paint. it was fine to have the streaks in the paint....i liked it. when the paint was dry they plugged in their glue guns and got to work with a pile of colorful butterflies.we bent them in the middle and put a tiny dot of hot glue in the center of the back of the butterfly. i hope that works.

Envelope Surprise DIY Apr 28 This is a project for a campaign I’m doing with Yahoo! Mail on keeping in touch with family and friends. This idea can be used for anyone that is having a special day but is perfect for when you want to do something for someone that lives far away (Mother’s Day anyone?) The idea is to get some envelopes and get friends and family to “sponsor” each envelope. What I love about this is you don’t have to do anything expensive, just take the person for a treat or write them a poem. Materials Needed: -Envelopes in several colors we used A6 from Paper Source-2 Packages of Vinyl Letters in Helvetica . Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. This would be great for someone just graduating from high school or college. A special thanks to Aubrey Trinnaman for the beautiful photos and to Alexis Birkmeyer for pulling together the details and being our lovely model (plus, isn’t her hair amazing!) All photos by Aubrey Trinnaman for Oh Happy Day Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

Electronic Mail Services Take a wooden matchstick and slice a thin sliver from one side. Then cut the remaining stick in two, lengthwise. Make sure you leave a little of the red tip intact for effect. Discard one half. Make the aircraft by glueing the sliver of wood - the wing - across the remaining part of the matchstick - the fuselage. If you want, you can use little scraps to make a tail section. Catch a bunch of flies. Meanwhile, put a tiny drop of rubber cement at each place along the wing where you want an engine. Take the flies out of the freezer. Breathe life into the flies. Launch the aircraft.

Kool-Aid Dyeing | snowangels I’ve decided to collect all of the links and images for my experiments dyeing yarn using Kool-Aid. These are the individual posts about the process: Kool-Aid Dyeing: Step One Kool-Aid Dyeing: Step Two Kool-Aid Dyeing: Second Effort Knitted swatch and socklets Below are the Step-by-Step instructions with photos that I used to actually dye test swatches and several full skeins of yarn. I scoured all the grocers in my area to find as many colors of KoolAid as possible for the test swatches. In a casserole dish with a squirt of dish soap, my test mini-skeins bathed for 30 minutes until thoroughly soaked in lukewarm water. Remember: Keep your skin protected with a pair of latex gloves. Combine 1/2c. water to one packet of KoolAid and stir until smooth. Use the proper tool for the job. In the back of our pantry, we discovered some Latin-centric drink mixes that we decided to try out. (For the record, the Guayaba smelled fantastic! (Dig the purple plastic wrap!) Bob holds a sample of cooled yarn.
