sarah’s snowflake panels + light [a big thanks to sarah at cursive for sharing this fun diy project with us while amy takes a much needed day-off] over the holidays i made lots of paper snowflakes to decorate our place for a holiday party. after the new year i couldn’t bear to throw away my delicate little friends so i decided to make a snowflake panel (+ pendant light!) out of them. my idea was definitely inspired by tord boontje‘s until dawn curtain. for the snowflakes i raided our recycling bin that was overflowing with junk mail and bills (ick). a little scissor angst perhaps? *click here for a sneak peek into sarah’s home CLICK HERE for the full how-to after the jump! materials needed for snowflake panels: paper (preferably from your recycle bin) good quality scissors elmers glue white masking tape measuring tape 1) make an assortment of large, medium and small snowflakes. snowflake tutorial here: 2) measure your window or determine how large you’d like your panel to be.
Let's get organized... As I start this post I am giggling (and I think my mom would have a good chuckle too). Something you need to know about me sooner rather than later is that I am NOT very organized. I usually put stuff away in 'a-place-I-will-definitely-find-it'. Needless to say, I never find the stuff or will find it again when we move. I made some minor changes to details, here and there. You will need: 4 different colour sheets of felt (2mm). A small piece of ribbon Thread (beads are optional) The template or Scribd version belowpage 1 page 2page 3page 4Unfortunately my Mac (and my lack of tech knowledge) couldn't add multiple pages to a pdf so there are four seperate pages for the template (sorry) Apologies in advance for the bad photo lighting (most of my crafting occurs at night.) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Now find a place to hang it! Love and blessings
See Me Everywhere michael ann made.: woven friendship bracelet tutorial i love the summer friendship bracelet trend that i keep seeing in blog land, so i thought it would be fun to share with you another way to weave a friendship bracelet. one of the parents at work showed me this technique of using a circular cardboard loom and i love how quick it goes, you can easily finish a bracelet in one sitting. - cardboard - something small and circular (like a teacup or ramekin) - scissors, ruler, pen - embroidery thread in pretty colors , thin yarn, or ribbon trace a circle onto your cardboard, and use a ruler to draw 8 lines cut a small ways into each line, between 1/2 an inch to an inch and make a hole in the middle of the circle where all the lines intersect. cut 7 strands of embroidery floss, about 24 inches long and tie them together with a slip knot. pull your thread bundle through the hole in your cardboard with the knot right up next to the hole and use a little piece of tape to hold it in place while you start. now for the fun part!
DIY Typographic String Art | Man Made DIY, is one of my favourite craft/DIY blog and they posted this tutorial. Which I am in love with! Its a very modern twist on the popular 7os trend of string art. Chris made this by projecting the words onto a piece of painted plywood and tracing it. La trousse de la rentrée et son tuto But I mostly noticed when, trying to get into a stationnery store, I got kicked out by a guard sorting the clients out... no kids, no entry... (Ok, that didin't really happen but, you never know, maybe, one day...) Ceci dit, il faut en avoir (du mérite) pour affronter les papeteries et autres rayons 'rentrée des classes' des supermarchés ces jours-ci... c'est la foire à l'empoigne, les gosses qui pleurent, les files kilométriques à la caisse... l'horreur! Anyway, anyone trying to go to the 'back to school' department of a store needs a lot of will and bravery... people are lining for hours or wrestling over a map, the kids are crying... a total nightmarre!
Flip-Flop Refashion: Part 1 (Braided Straps) Summer is great. And warm. And full of outdoor activities and trips to the pool and random walks around the neighborhood. I love it. And my shoe of choice for these warmer months?? So, I saw a tutorial for this flip-flop makeover (great work Mother Huddle), floating around the web…….and the wheels started turning. I decided to just string all of the ideas together and create a whole series. First up? A quick and easy flip flop…….made with some braided knit fabric scraps, using the 5 strand braiding technique, shown here. These soft braided straps streeeeeetch the perfect amount, right around the back of my heel……..keeping the flip-flop snug and in place. I added little loops of fabric to the sides, to keep the braided straps in place. These little sandals are so light, they’re soft and stretchy, and my favorite part……..they’re inexpensive. ($2.50 to be exact) These flip-flops make me think of the beach……and make me miss GA. I guess I better find a sandy spot at the lake. And that’s it. Enjoy.
