Woven gift-wrap // pastel edition ^_^

Woven gift-wrap // pastel edition ^_^
By Kate on August 8, 2012 I noticed that the woven gift-topper I made last year was doing the rounds again on Pinterest so I thought I would make an updated pastel version (pastels seem to be the new neon at the moment). I bought some quilling strips (0.5cm) to use this time which reduces the labour by about half (I’ve also been working on some more intricate woven ‘things’ for another project…more to come soon). Anyway check out the previous post if you want full instructions. Above: Mischevious hands – the unseen backdrop in all my photo’s ^_^ While I took photos today my boys were making their own presents by wrapping boxes in newspaper. Finally, the font used on these images is called soymilk and it’s free to download …yay!

Embroidered Cards I had some fun embroidering cards the other day. Have you ever tried embroidery? This project would be a great way to learn, making holes in the paper makes it very easy to see where you’re moving next and the general plan of your design or word. These embroidered cards would be a really special gift for Mother’s Day. Cupcake Toppers Sometimes I enjoy walking around the mall. I rarely ever buy anything (unless Anthropologie has a sale), but Atlanta is really hot and the mall is air-conditioned, and there is coffee… …anyway I was browsing the home department at Macy’s and saw these adorable glitter pom pom cupcake toppers from Martha Stewart, and decided that I must make my own. I’ve been searching all over the vast internets to find a picture so you can see how similar they look, but alas I have come up empty handed. I picked up two packs of glitter pom poms from Michael’s and just twisted some toothpicks into them, and voila!

little guiding stars Since the new year has started I’ve been trying to think of ways to be more kind to my self. Especially when that nasty gremlins try to creep in and stump me. I remembered this origami star video on You Tube and had to get them involved in my plan. I thought it would be fun to make a whole bunch with kind words and “you are….” phrases inside. I made 60 of them, enough to last me the whole year if I open one a week, plus a few extra just in case. I used 12 x 12 inch scrapbook paper and cut 1/2 x 12″ strips, then followed the video HERE*.
