How to Make Paper Pencils (tutorial) | scissors.paper.wok - StumbleUpon I have always wanted to make my own pencils, but the thought of shaping two pieces of wood to allow a piece of lead to sit perfectly inside made me think it wasn’t worth the effort. For some reason I was looking at some pieces of lead I have (for a drafting pencil) and “pop” there it was.. a solution to my DIY longing. Here is a tutorial to make pencils that is so ridiculously easy I’ve made 10 pencils since the idea came to me yesterday! Enjoy. Paper: I recommend using 6″ origami paper. Here’s a video I made so you can watch me make it from start to finish! I have to admit I really enjoyed doing this craft. Hope you’re just as excited about this as I am! leads {here} paper {here} mod podge {here} {If you like pencils, you may also like my toadstool pencil craft!} Share 16K+ Kimanh Hi my name's Kimanh.

DIY | will you be my bridesmaid? » Something Turquoise {daily bridal inspiration} Something Turquoise {daily bridal inspiration} I am in love with today’s DIY. It’s a very special way to ask your besties to be a part of your special day! Don’t just blurt it out… “Will you be my bridesmaid!!??” Pin Start by marking lines on the top of your box to create guides for stamping. Since our stamping is aligned at the right, I started stamping from the right side; or backwards. If your box top is like mine, it might sag a little towards the middle… make sure you apply even pressure with your stamp. I always like to test out each stamp along the way… check twice and stamp once. Keep stamping until it reads, “Will you be my…”. Since the box had a slight texture to it, I had to fill in some little spots with a fine black marker. When your ink is finally dry, carefully erase your guide lines. Now we are going to start wrapping! Now, prepare your tissue paper. Next we will roll the bridesmaid tank over your wrapping paper tube so it will stand up when placed in the box. Next, fold in your tissue paper and tie your ribbon bow.

DIY Ruffle Garland Hi sweets! It’s Jenny from Hank + Hunt and I am really excited about this DIY today…I’ve been meaning to share it with you. As you may know, the first thing I started selling in my shop were ruffled fabric garlands. I like them because they are pretty and girly and sometimes as a mom of two boys, you really need something feminine. But what I love most is that I can touch them and they will be around as long as my memories will. Make these for your wedding, use them for your mini munchkin’s first birthday, Sweet 16 and your 25th Anniversary. Supplies: 4 yards of fabric Rotary cutter Pinking shears Thread and needle Sewing machine Twill tape or ribbon Wash, dry and iron the fabric. Thread the needle with a 2 yard length of thread, doubling over so you have a total length of 36”. Gently gather, and repeat. Once you have the length of garland you need, tie off the thread in a knot to hold the gather. Now, for the sewing machine part. Cut two pieces of twill tape about a yard each. 1.

Easy DIY Wedding Programs Tutorial Posted on April 27, 2009 by Christina By Amanda Colyer For our DIY Wedding programs, I wanted to keep it simple and inexpensive, but still provide my guests with some entertainment. Materials for DIY Wedding Programs: - A2 sized folded cards (or card stock cut to size and folded) - Golf pencils , pre-drilled with holes wide enough for ribbon to pass through - Popsicle sticks , also pre-drilled - Scissors - Needle with a large eye - Corner Rounder Punch - Thin ribbon - Double Sided Tape Note: A2 is a great size because there’s room for content, but they’re not so big that they’re floppy. Designing my programs was a snap with Microsoft Word. I had tons of ideas for games that I ran out of time to use. Once you’ve designed your programs (making sure to fit the card dimensions), print the front and back onto the outside of the cards. and had no problems. To start assembling, open up a card and put double stick tape on three sides. Close the card, pressing to seal the edges. Our guests loved them!

First, download the pattern template HERE.
