If you made the origami bow using this tutorial and you have either one of these facebook, yahoo group, blog, twitter and others please share the link to this tutorial. Sharing is what making blogging fun. I saw this origami bow tutorial here. A 3" x 3" paper would make a nice bow. A thin pattern paper would make a beautiful bow. If you are using double side pattern paper place the side that you want down.

How To: Gift Bow These are super easy to make and are sure to have their recipients ooh-ing and ahh-ing. Read on for the tute ;) You will need: (three) 8" by 1/2" wide strips (two) 6" by 1/2" wide strips How To Make a Loopy Paper Flower / Bow / Gift Finish-er Off-er Thing You know how sometimes you make something and it turns out to be SO EASY that a monster is created because you can't stop, which is perfectly okay because not only is that thing easy, but also SUPER FAST and FREE? Yeah, me neither. For anybody who has ever wanted something other than a ribbon (although you certainly could use ribbon) to pretty up a package, this one is dedicated to you. Grab some double sided paper, scissors, a stapler and a glue gun.

Duct Tape Flower What up duct tape? Did you miss us?! For today’s bit of DIY accessory magic, we’ve figured out how to turn 3M’s Scotch Color & Patterns Duct Tape into gloriously neon rosettes. How to Make 6-Pointed Paper Snowflakes This step by step guide will teach you how to make SIX pointed paper snowflakes. Most people make (and most how-tos teach) snowflakes with four or eight points. Real snowflakes in nature form with six points (or occasionally three if they formed weird) so I choose to make my own with six points. Flapping Paper Butterfly I had a baby so I’ve invited some fave guests to take over for me while I spend time with the little guy. Today’s post is from super crafter and cute mom, Amelia of The Homebook. Growing up, I had an aunt who lived in Canada. Every year for my birthday she’d send me a card and a fancy little gift. She always found the neatest things! One year, when I was maybe 10 or 11, she sent me another card—and when I opened it up, a paper butterfly fluttered out of the card.

Newspaper Gift Bags Gift bags made from newspaper is a great idea for birthday parties or weddings! We saw this on a site that was we think was in Vietnamese?? Anywho -here’s our best try at translation along with the photo tutorial. What is Marbling? What is Marbling? Hi -- I'm Galen Berry, otherwise known as the Medieval Marbler. I'm one of the few professional marblers in the country. Homemade Lavender Bath Salt I love using my bath salts especially after a busy day, so I keep this large apothecary jar next to my tub full of epsom salt. Epsom salt is so good for detoxing achy muscles and has so many healing properties. You can find plain epsom bath salts at any drug or grocery store as well as many versions mixed with a variety of fragrance. Nice, but why not make your own with really good ingredients? My favorite version of bath salt includes lavender buds and lavender essential oils.

October Afternoon: Tuesday Tutorial: Pocket-Page Mini-Album Happy Tuesday! It's Jill here, and I'm excited to share a step-by-step process for creating a pocket-page mini-album using colorful goodies from the October Afternoon Sidewalks collection! Step 1: Assemble your supplies. You will need five 5.5" x 12" sheets of double-sided patterned paper (although you could easily use 6" x 12" sheets as well; I just happened to cut mine oddly to begin with, so I ran with it.)

Newspaper Gift Bags When I bought something at a store recently, the clerk handed me my purchase in a bag made from a newspaper. I liked it very much and had to make some more—thus today's DIY recycled newspaper project: gift bags made from the Wall Street Journal. You can vary the dimensions, of course, but here's what I used to create a bag that's 5" tall, 4.5" wide, and 3" deep. Stack two sheets of newspaper on top of each other. Water Supply and Drinking Water in Thailand In general, people don't drink tap water, with bottled water being the norm. While it has been reported that tap water exceeds world standards for drinking water in many parts of the city, and the Metropolitan Water Works Authority has made a strong effort to exceed World Health Organization standards by 1999, in some places the water that comes out of the tap is still questionable, usually as regards the pipe network that carries the water to some old places. Hauling large quantities of bottled water from the store is not necessary. Large containers of bottled water can be delivered to your door on a regular schedule by water vendors. Ask your building manager, a neighborhood official, or a neighbor for information on who serves your neighborhood. In central Bangkok, you can just call the company Sprinkle at 02-712-7272, one of the best organized.

Loom Flowers Last week I shared with you the templates to make these pretty loom flowers, and this week I am going to show how to use the looms to make them. If you missed the post with the templates, you can click here to see the post and download them. To start, insert the tail end of your yarn through the center of your loom and place a finger over the tail to secure it. Then, wrap the long end of your yarn around the top tab. Wrap the yarn around the tab on the opposite side of the loom. Paper Pendants If charts, graphs and metrics are your thing, you might enjoy crafting some pie chart pendants. They're made entirely of paper. Oh, and a little glue, thread and a jump ring if you want to get technical. Which you probably do, if you're the kind of person who likes pie charts. With a punch (I used a 1" circle), cut out about 12 circles of cardstock. You can add as many circles to the pendant as needed to get the thickness you want, of course.
