DIY string-tie envelopes

DIY string-tie envelopes
Hello! Sorry about the little break. My son has been off on his half-term holidays so I had a blog-free week! Now I am back, I just want to give a big shout out (and a big thank you) to my new sponsors, pi’ikea street and paper glitter….do check their sites out! I also wanted to say a massive thanks to all the people who have left comments lately (and to those who have sent me lovely emails). It’s been especially great to hear from people who have been making the projects…and ace seeing all your pictures…hurray! I do confess that I have always had a ‘thing’ about string-tie envelopes. These dinky little envelopes are great for all-sorts of things (storing paper ephemera, housing invitations/gift cards, storing seeds). By the way, now my kids are getting better at using scissors they have been really enjoying making their own envelopes using the template from my previous post. You will find a full tutorial and templates below! How-to 1. 3. 5. Job done!

DIY Cereal Box Stationery Organizer Tutorial & Review of Tombow Glue for Crafts I saw a great DIY Tutorial for a Cereal Box Stationery Organizer on Pinterest and I thought I would share my take on it! Materials a cereal box (I used an 11oz. one that's about 7" wide)scrapbook paperTombow Craft Gluepencil or Sharpie markertransparent tapeUtility knife Step One With the Craft Glue, glue the top of the box closed, then reinforce both the top and bottom with tape. Step Two We're going to be cutting the box in half to make 2 boxes for the organizer (the sides will be cut at an angle), so we need to measure and draw the cut line on the cereal box. On the front of the box, measure about 5 1/2" from the top and make a mark along one side and then the other.

Dresser Organizer If your husband is anything like mine, he has a pile of stuff on his side of the dresser and elsewhere throughout the house. Since I've started to organize, I had found a box and was just putting all his stuff into the box. That wasn't working well. So I decided to make him a dresser organizer.
