Here is what you will need to make these cute little cards: 3×6 pieces of card stockblack and white card stockembroidery threadglue dotsbradsa template for your grad hats – I made mine by drawing a diamond for one piece. Sweet origami hearts To be honest, I was never keen on origami hearts (or roses for that matter) for a fairly long time because it was hard to accept the way they look — I find them too edgy and not very loving. Well that’s all in the past. My perception has changed (and I’m so glad). I have embraced their looks and I will admire them as they are. I’ve been on a folding spree over the new year break, particularly enjoying making heart after heart, starting with:

Cereal Box Journal Here’s a quick and easy way to re-use a cereal box and make a useful journal from it. Ever use the Moleskine notebooks? I love them, so thought I’d make some of my own with materials that I had around the house. There are lots of possibilities for this project.

How to Make Silhouette Portraits - The Easy Way (with bonus project: book wreath) : Frantically Simple A couple of weeks ago I showed you a few simple things I did to improve the look of my living room. Namely, moving a large mirror above the couch and creating a wreath and family silhouettes. Sorry about the glare – here’s a side shot of the silhouettes that is a bit more clear. Green Wrapping: DIY Cardboard Pillow Box If you've taken the "Buy Handmade" challenge this year why stop there? Inspired by Doug's post last year about turning a cereal box into an eco-friendly gift box, I endeavored to make a pillow box this year. With just some scissors, a ruler and a ceral box I was able to make a decent cardboard pillow box. The shape and structure of it came out great, but truth be told, my decorating was a bit uninspired as you can see below. Upon looking for picture that better shows the potential for someone with a little more creativity in the decorating department I found a great tutorial on

Hexagonal Stacking Boxes - Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories The inspiration for this week’s project comes from the Japanese stacking octagonal box kit shown above. We previously used a similar technique to demonstrate a business card box with traditional elegance. We now present a surreal modern makeover for Japanese papercraft boxes by using (recycling) paperboard packaging. We follow the same basic construction techniques, but simplify it by eliminating the paper coverings and decorations. In their place, we use paperboard from cereal, cracker and cookie packaging. These cheerful boxes are easier and less expensive to make and have a surreal quality to them.

Iris Folding and more from Valerie Anne Pink Gumboot! by Valerie (Otago NZ) I made this Iris folding pattern from a googled silhouette and I used a pink and white paper on a floral background. Make the World's Smallest Photo Postcard Of all the technological advancements of the 20th century, our favorite is the ability to click a device named after a rodent (mouse!) and have our inner most thoughts shot through space, right into the computers of our dearest friends and family. We wonder, is it possible to one-up that? It is! Ain’t no biggie. Friendship Bracelets {Craft Camp} I am excited to be offering 30 days of fun crafts to keep kids active and entertained this summer!
