Kaleidocycle {aka folding paper toy!}

Kaleidocycle {aka folding paper toy!}
Have you ever made a kaleidocycle before? They are pretty fun. All you need is some glue, paper and 5 or 10 minutes! There is an animated gif at the bottom on the post so that you can see what they do. There are also instructions & a template below too ^_^ – Template – Paper or thin card – Glue – Scissors – Ruler and needle for scoring 1. The animated gif is a bit shaky. By the way, check out this free download (courtesy of my cousins band) which contains: trick or treat poster, DIY ‘creeps’ mask, high quality MP3 and exclusive video art. And, Helen, from Curlybirds just put together a ‘vintage Halloween costume‘ post on her site.

I’ve started stringing them on to some fairy lights but they would look just as great as Christmas tree decorations.

DIY: Hand-Lettered Stitched Photo Canvas I’ve been wanting to try my hand at a photo canvas for some time, but I haven’t loved the finish on the photos from modgepodge or other methods I’d found. I’m excited that this version of a DIY hand-lettered, stitched photo canvas doesn’t have any messy wrapped edges, the finish is a perfect matte, and the stitching makes it double the fun. For this canvas project, I chose a simple image of a crystal clear glacier lake from a camping trip a few years back and lettered ‘make a splash’ to stitch over top. I love how care-free it feels, perfect for summer decor. It would also make a lovely gift for a friend embarking on a new adventure.
