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.

Crafts, food and life - Blog - It's doable...the flower wall art What started it all... This was inspired by another Pinterest viewer, of which I've tried desperately to track down, I'm in the works though!-- The search comes to an end!! Thank you, CANDICE for such a beautiful and fun craft!! This is quite an easy project and it cost me a total of $13! -1 12x16 inch canvas $5.99 (with 40% off coupon, originally $9.99) -1 Artist's Loft 4 oz acrylic grey paint $3.99 (I used the excess on this project) -5 pieces of scrap book paper $3 total I had the following: -Mini hot glue gun and glue sticks (Michael's has these for about $3) -Foam paint brushes (Michael's has these for about $1.50) -Mod Podge (Please read reader comments before using) 1) Paint your canvas. 2) While your first coat is drying, cut a 2 inch wide strip off the bottom of each of your scrap book papers. 3) Then cut that strip into 2-3 inch rectangles. 4) Starting at one corner of the square make a curved cut to the opposite corner. 5) And back again. 6) Ta-da you have a leaf now! That's it!

you knew i was going to make one. - StumbleUpon they are all over pinterest....(i still am not signed up for pinterest because i don't have time for one more thing but browsing is fun!) so we made one. i took a box of 64 crayons and took out the blacks and browns.i used another small box and doubled up on the good colors i liked and hot glued them to the top of our canvas. then we turned our blow dryer to hot on high. not long after you set the hair dryer by the crayons they get shiny and then the wax starts to melt! and it dries really quickly too. seriously. what could be happier than this?? GREAT project. loved it today is the first FULL day with ALL my kids in ALL day school.yeah...i am smiling as i type that. it's good. it's quiet. i am rockin' it. removing wallpaper.....making code for craft weekend stuff.....doing my hair....going to lunch..... it's all good. hooray for school!
