DIY Leather Pouch Contributor post by Ashley Rose of Sugar and Cloth What do you give to someone who already has everything? A DIY leather pouch made just by you for all of their little somethings. I'll teach you how to modify a craft store leather bag kit to make this project modern, well made, and cost effective while still being the work of your hands. Materials: Scissors A 3/4" silver rivet In case the term "belt bag" threw you off a little, don't fret! Next, remove the snap that would normally be used for the belt loop, and replace it with a simple silver rivet for aesthetic purposes. For the sides, lay the leather pieces rough side facing rough side, and align the outer punched holes. As long as you're sewing as tightly as you can through the aligned punched holes, then you're sides will form correctly even if they pucker a bit at first (see top photo). Finish it up with clasping hardware by inserting the screw through the inside of the pouch, and then twisting the clasp onto it from the outside.

38 Best DIY Food Gifts crafty, easy, stylish jewelry I’m so excited to tell you about this new collection of easy to assemble jewelry. It’s called Styled by Tori Spelling and no, it’s not sold in high-end boutiques and upscale department stores – it’s available in major craft and hobby stores. That’s right – these collections; Boho, Glam, Noir, and Glitz by Styled by Tori Spelling are so easy to create, you don’t have to be a jewelry crafter or a a crafter at all. The idea is simple. The pieces above are from the Glitz and Boho collections that I received to try out. You can also make matching earrings. For a dramatic look, showcase a bold pendant on a necklace top and bottom. You can also make bracelets. For this piece I used four bracelets and also added the leaves from a pendant dangler. Note: [crafty confession]: to add the leaves, I did use pliers since I was using the pendant differently than it was intended for. Another project a little outside of the box, I used this adorable owl pendant to make a bookmark. Thanks for visiting. Carolyn

Vibrant colour tturquoise stones and pearl earrings, looks perfect any time of the day DIY Christmas Giftables: Earphone Cord Keepers with Printable Packaging This Christmas season I've been trying to branch out to crafting not just jewelry but into other things that more people would like to have - today I made this earphone cord keeper with free printable packaging to share with you. It's easy, takes up less than an hour of your time and would be a cute stocking stuffer for your techie friend or an accessory for you! :) What do you need: Bamboo stick / really thin dowel Cutter Sandpaper First, knead your clay and flatten it - then cut out your shape. Next, use your sandpaper and dab on the clay until you get the texture of a gingerbread man. Add your details using a contrasting polymer clay color - here I was trying to imitate icing. Next, poke your hole - after a few tries I realized the sharper end of the bamboo stick would produce a cleaner hole. Poke two more holes and make two more sets of parallel lines connected to them. Yay, I'm almost done my Christmas list.
