Quick craft // DIY galaxy envelopes
Galaxy DIY’s are everywhere at the moment and it’s easy to apply this theme to lots of paper-craft projects. All you need is an old astronomy magazine (they contain page after page of mind-blowing images that you can cut out)! I made some envelopes (and some geometric wall-art….coming soon)! There are a gazillion envelope templates on the web that you can use (or you could use my string-tied envelope template). You could also make some galaxy gift-tags/ribbon or some 3d galaxy geometric shapes. Do leave a comment if you have any more ideas ^_^ Oh, and the font in the top image is called Later On and it’s free!

Make Your Own Marbled Scarf My mother and I used to marble paper on the weekends when I was younger. To this day, I still feel like I am a mad scientist when I marble, experimenting with new colors and testing new patterns. Even if you don’t have experience with marbling, it’s a fun project to try with friends. It requires about an hour prep time, but once you’re all set up you’ll be able to marble to your heart’s content. You can get great results on your first try, but the more you play with the paint and pattern-making, the better it gets.

DIY Ombre Tote Bags » For the Love of... For the Love of… This tutorial was originally published in January 2012 on my old blog, Four Flights Of Fancy. All this week I will be adding my most popular DIY’s from Four Flights onto For the Love Of. I hope you like the new to this space content! I’ve had some plain canvas totes taking up space in my craft bin for awhile now. DIY cards with copper foil Recently I ordered some laser toner reactive foil. It's metallic foil that will adhere to the toner on laser prints when it's heated and pressed. Or maybe it's not truly foil. I showed this experiment to my packaging-engineer husband who told me it was probably "metalized film" and blah blah blah "metal vapor deposition" blah blah, but "don't quote me on that." No problem; I didn't understand a word he said anyhow.

Tutorial on making the alphabet letters I noticed that the papercraft alphabet created some interest among people who are not (yet) experienced in papercrafting. Therefore, some letters turned out to be a bit too difficult for some, which prompted me to write this little tutorial. The idea is to give you pointers as to where to start.

Lil' Mister Bow Tie Welcome MADE readers! I am excited to be partying with Rae and Dana for… What is cuter on a little boy than a bow tie? I can’t think of much. They make rough and tumble little boys looks like sweet little gentlemen. Digitprop – Papercraft and Stuff This is the official announcement for the papercraft alphabet I just finished uploading. That was quite some work, especially with two hyperactive kids climbing all over me while I am typing. By the way, if you speak German: Hätte auch auf Deutsch funktioniert. Anyway, the alphabet is now complete – a collection of 26 papercraft templates for all letters 0f the alphabet, each representing an animal, thing, or people starting with that letter: You will find the complete list of templates here. You can use them for education, as toys, or to spell out whatever message you want to get across.

Vellum Flower Cake DIY Oct 3 by Chiara Alberetti Milott I’ve always loved the way edible flowers – or frosted, or gum paste, or marzipan for that matter – look on a cake. But there are always these two problems for me- I’m afraid I’m going to inadvertently poison my guests, and they’re not always readily available (I think I’ve seen packages at Whole Foods, but that was eons ago). This is a pretty simple way to decorate a cake inspired by that look. Sharing the tea cosy love! Ok, so it started with one tea cosy and now there have been three more! One for a gift, one ordered by a friend and another to pop into my shop. They are just so lovely to make and seeing them sitting together with their different coloured roses makes me smile.
