Tissue Paper and Tulle Flower Tutorial.

Tissue Paper and Tulle Flower Tutorial.
Well, here it is - a tutorial on how to make a tissue paper flower (with tulle). Good luck and please feel free to ask any questions in the comments section if anything is unclear. First of all, assemble your stuff - tissue paper (2 colours if desired), tulle, string and scissors. Cut two rectangles of each colour and two rectangles of tulle. The flower I have made used 38cm x 25.5cm sheets but it doesn't really matter, just so long as the pieces are all rectangular and of the same size. Lay the six sheets on top of each other. Once the folding is complete, bend it in half like a fan and tie it tightly (so that it gathers) in the middle with string Snip the ends with scissors to make a petal shape. Fan out one side into a half circle. Then, delicately begin separating the layers, taking care not to ruin the pleats or tear the tissue paper (when this happens, don't cry... Continue separating and Unfurl the other side and continue in the same way, separating, lifting and zshoozshing. p.s.

Paper fortune teller origami heart A heart, made of 18 paper fortune teller origamis – a nice present for a loving person! We used piece of paper 9cmX9cm, specially designed to fit this frame. But you can make it with any other size. We used also coloured printing paper. Paper flower tutorial I thought some of you would enjoy a quick tutorial on how to make those little paper flowers I used as part of my table setting a couple weeks ago. The credit for these go to Martha Stewart (I saw this idea nearly 10 years ago in her magazine, but haven't been able to find it on her website). So here I go..

My yarn-holding coffee can cubbies! Well I know I said last week that my studio series would be this week, but I still haven’t been able to get in a good photoshoot of the whole room because there hasn’t been any freaking sunshine since last Thursday! Damn Portland, don’t you know it’s Spring already?! So, here is my coffee can cubbies yarn holder thing that I made, and I’ll probably do more studio posts spread out over the next couple weeks or something…

13 i’ve been super excited to share a new DIY video series with you all! today we will be making an ombré painted picnic blanket. i’ve always found myself using old sheets for park or beach picnics because i didn’t want to ruin my nicer blankets. when natalie suggested that we paint a drop cloth that has a plastic underside I looked at her and said “girl, now that’s smart.” a stylish blanket that we can customize and that doesn’t get stained — let’s make it! (make sure to watch the video for a detailed step by step!)

Bracelets: a tutorial This project is inspired by one of my first pins. Credit goes to that first pinner out there who saw it and realized they could make it themselves. Do you use Pinterest? It's funny how a site filled with such creativity can make me feel so un-creative. Like everything has been done before and no matter how great I think my idea is, chances are, someone has already done it. Crafty Monster Bookmark Perfect for Father's Day This fun and simple bookmark came out of inspiration from Kari and Becky at UCreate. We all attended a conference a few weeks back and got to talking about how people come up with creative ideas. It can simply come from naming 2 supplies like googley eyes and pipe cleaners. Then Becky said how about a bookmark, so this Monster Bookmark idea was born.

Tutorials Craftiness Is Not Optional sewing, crafts, and parties fabric triangle headband tutorial-Jo-Ann spring crafts and a coupon March 18, 2014 By Jess 9 Comments I'm loving the geometric trend that's a-happening right now. Medallion Snowflakes Last week, I had posted that some friends and I were going to be making snowflakes to send to the Connecticut PTSA to help decorate a new school for the students of Sandy Hook Elementary. Since then, they have posted on their website that they are no longer taking donations of snowflakes, as they have, in a way, been snowed in with the generous contributions of people from all over the world. In their message, they have asked that we create winter wonderlands in our own homes to show empathy and solidarity for the Newtown families. We won’t be having a link party now, but we will be showcasing our snowflakes in our homes in remembrance and in honor of the students at Sandy Hook Elementary School. There is plenty of snow outside, and we have been sledding in the backyard, rolling around in the snow and trying to build snowmen, all in an attempt to wear out J, so the winter break isn’t filled with never-ending episodes of Bob the Builder and Yo Gabba Gabba.

autumn leaf bouquet I don’t know what it’s like in your neighborhood, but when I step outside here in Oakland, I sense it right away: Fall is in the air! I’m lucky enough to have a few turning trees on my street, so I don’t miss out entirely on the brilliant autumn colors I remember from growing up in NH. Speaking of brilliant autumn colors, I’m thrilled to share this stunning maple leaf rose bouquet DIY from a fellow Kate — clay, fiber and paper artist Kate Hust.

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.
