DIY Typographic String Art Man Made DIY, is one of my favourite craft/DIY blog and they posted this tutorial. Which I am in love with! Its a very modern twist on the popular 7os trend of string art. It’s very simple to make, and looks amazing! Chris made this by projecting the words onto a piece of painted plywood and tracing it. Maneki Neko ★★ There are a few legends around the Maneki Neko. She (or maybe a he) supposedly saved some rich guy’s life long long ago by waving him to go away from under a tree that got hit by lightning. Also there’s a story about a beheaded cat that brought the grieving owner luck after being reincarnated into a wooden statue or appearing in a poor woman’s dream with a good business-proposal. Point is, since the 17th century this cat brings Luck, Health, Wealth and Love, so we felt the need to repay his duties by recreating him in the purest and delicate canvas of all: paper. May Maneki Neko keep on being our beloved good luck charm and live his paper-life in good health, prosperity and full of love himself.

How to fold an adorable towel bunny while you wait for your meal One of the greatest things about going out to a restaurant in Japan is the oshibori, hot or cold towels given to patrons to clean their hands before a meal. We don’t know why more countries haven’t adopted this practice; there’s nothing better than being greeted by a soothing oshibori before a delicious meal. But once you’ve wiped your hands off (…and face for some people), that mini towel just sits around at the table looking like a soggy rag. That’s why we’re bringing you these easy instructions on how to create a bunny out of your oshibori towel. Enjoy! Papercraft Once you download the file, you will need to open the following files with a different program which are all free to download:.pdf files are opened with Adobe Reader 9.pdo files are opened with Pepakura Viewer.zip and .rar files are opened with WinRAR. If a .pdo file asks you for a password, it usually means you have downloaded Pepakura Designer and not Pepakura Viewer, so make sure to get the viewer instead. Here’s a little demonstration on using Pepakura Viewer 3. Pepakura does not work on a MAC.
La trousse de la rentrée et son tuto But I mostly noticed when, trying to get into a stationnery store, I got kicked out by a guard sorting the clients out... no kids, no entry... (Ok, that didin't really happen but, you never know, maybe, one day...) Ceci dit, il faut en avoir (du mérite) pour affronter les papeteries et autres rayons 'rentrée des classes' des supermarchés ces jours-ci... c'est la foire à l'empoigne, les gosses qui pleurent, les files kilométriques à la caisse... l'horreur! Anyway, anyone trying to go to the 'back to school' department of a store needs a lot of will and bravery... people are lining for hours or wrestling over a map, the kids are crying... a total nightmarre!
Make a tiny origami Santa I made wee origami Santas. Each guy is folded from two 1 1/2" squares of red paper. Have the kids tuck one inside your Christmas cards or stick them onto gift tags. Party Hats DIY + Template I love making party hats. I usually make my own because it is surprisingly hard to find party hats in normal colors. If I do happen to find them in the colors I like then I still spruce them up with my own fringe or flowers. Sometimes though I do prefer them plain like this one I put on Roman. I did a post on this a few years ago (here + here) but it is high time for an update. Materials: Downloadable Hat Template Click here to download. Applique inverse: un tutoriel This is a really fun, simple project. Yet another way to fancy up some plain tees or a great fix for old shirts with holes. It takes a little practice to master sewing a curved design like this one. I'm definitely not there yet but, I was pretty impressed with myself this time around. If you're unsure of your sewing skills try finding a design with straight lines i.e. a cross or monogram of your initial.
