24 Cute And Incredibly Useful Gift Wrap DIYs

Gold confetti dish tutorial. I've had this gold leaf pen kit for a while, just waiting for the perfect application. And I think these sweet little bowls and dishes are just right! I have bowls and trays scattered all over my apartment to catch my earrings and necklaces that I seem to shed as soon as I walk through the front door. Place a necklace or pair of earrings in one, tie it up with cellophane, and you have a pretty handmade gift! Here's what you'll need: Gold Leaf Pen Kit with gold leaf sheets. Wash your ceramic pieces well, and remove any stickers or labels. Follow the instructions on the package to get the gold leaf adhesive pen flowing. Starting on one side of outside of the bowl, simply dab the pen across the top rim, concentrating the dots at the top of the rim and staggering them out towards the bottom. Lay some paper down on your workspace for easy clean-up. Using a soft brush (I used a large watercolor brush), sweep it over your gold design, exfoliating the excess gold leaf. That's it!

sobres 18K+ Well I got this idea from our friend Nina. She was making these super cute envelopes out of scrapbook paper and I really wanted to make some! So I came home and made some! They are so so SO simple and add a personal touch to your envelopes. You will need: An old magazine, scissors, an envelope, a glue stick and a Sharpie. Tear out some magazine pages that you like. Carefully pull the envelope apart. Trace the envelope on a magazine page. Cut the envelope shape out. Turn the envelope over as well as the magazine cut-out. Unfold everything and separate the magazine cut-out from the envelope. Glue the bottom flap down to the two side flaps. And you've made your own envelope! The great thing about making these envelopes our of magazine pages is that the envelopes have a character all of their own.

Old receipts, scraps of paper, a pencil, etc. (For those curious, I finished A Million Suns a couple days later and really enjoyed it! I’ve been eye-ing lots of super cute DIY bookmarks for the last few months that I’ve seen pop up around the web. The problem is, often my bookmarks fall out and I lose my page.

I must admit, I love buttons and I always have. Let’s get started… To make my Christmas tree I used a variety of things I already had in my stash, with the exception of the frame, which I purchased. ButtonsCanvasFeltPom Pom trimAcrylic paintMetallic spray mistPaint brushesSpray bottleFabric glue and Modge PodgeChipboard or cardboardTwineAssorted beadsFreezer paper/wax paper (to protect your work surface) I am a big advocate of using what you have on hand so feel free to make substitutions, based on the supplies in your stash. I purchased a frame with an opening large enough to accommodate the size I envisioned for my tree. Now we’re ready to start painting the background for the canvas.

Sweet DIY Votives | Fellow Fellow Here’s what you’ll need: 1. Measure the height and circumference of your jar, and cut strips of fabric to roughly fit (approx. 1cm wide – doesn’t have to be perfect). 2. 3. Note: – I find that it’s ok to have fabric going above the top of your jar because it can be easily cut off after it’s dried. – I don’t mind the look of the overlapping lines of fabric once the candle is lit, but if you do try not to overlap the strips in the gluing process. ** Please only use only battery operated tea-lights (not real candles).
