A little monster loves you... We're well past Christmas now, and the present has been delivered, so now I can share it! I didn't have a whole lot of money this year for Christmas, but this Christmas I have a fiance! Darned if I wasn't going to do something special, so I decided to make something myself, out of something that's just about as cheap as it gets... paper!! I spent my lunchbreak over a week cutting this out by hand, with a fairly crappy xacto knife. It's a little bit hard to read, but at the top it says "N&J" (Niamh and Jonathan) surrounded by little hearts, and then it says "A little Monster Loves you So". I hung it in a floating glass frame I got for sale at Michaels. It's a little joke between us that I'm his little monster. The little monster in the cut out is wearing the slippers. Here's a shot of it with fun shadows on his office wall... Needless to say, he loved it.

How to Create a Backyard Movie Screen Watching a favorite movie outdoors is a fun and special warm–weather activity for kids and parents alike. And all it takes are some simple materials — plus a little creativity — to transform your backyard into an outdoor theatre. Setting Up Your Outdoor Screen What you need: 2 thick, white queen–size ironed flat sheets Top pole 1.5" diameter x 10' long Bottom pole 3" diameter x 10' long Rope — 2 different thicknesses Step 1. Once your screen is set up, create a casual, comfortable seating arrangement using plush cushions covered in fade–proof fabrics and soft, moisture–resistant pillows. A few simple drinks and snacks are all you need to complete your outdoor theatre.

Origami Envelope If you’d like to make these cute little “Flap Lock” Origami Envelopes–all you’ll need is a piece of square paper…any size. I used Christmas scrapbook paper. 1. Fold the paper in half to form a triangle. Make sure your edges are even. 2. 3. fold the right corner about 1/3 of the way to the left. 4. 5. 6. 6. 7. 8. 9. And there you have it! Now scurry off and make a million of these–or at least 24 if you’re using them for the Family Advent Countdown Calendar. Not in the mood to fold your own? Tutorial: Scrap Buster Fall Pillow This is my favorite thing to do with my little scraps, and since its Scrap Buster month over at Sew, Mama, Sew, I made a quick tutorial so you can make your own. This pillow cover is 16" square with an envelope back & the design possibilities are endless! I added some pillows I’ve previously made with this same method at the end of this post. You’ll Need: 1. 2. 3. 4. Iron your fabric scraps onto your appliqué material according to the directions on the appliqué material. Now with scissors cut out your trunk and leaf shapes. When you get all your leaves cut out, tear the backing appliqué paper off the leaves and trunk. Then you can arrange them how you want on your pillow front. Once your design is how you like it, press with an iron over each spot for a few seconds making sure not to bump anything out of place. Now you can sew either along the inside edges of your leaves, or you can do a zig zag stitch or blanket stitch around the edges if you prefer. Pin around the edges well.

How to Make a Cake with Zebra Stripes on the Inside! & MyCakeSchool Blog Hi everyone! Happy Friday! Okay, it is just about 15 minutes until Saturday here, but I’m still going to call this a Friday blog -:0) — Let’s celebrate by making a zebra cake! In my last video tutorial, I demonstrated how to decorate a cake with zebra stripes–a very fun look for your safari, fashion or just plain funky themed cakes! Well, today I’ll show you how to continue the theme to the inside of the cake. By the way, I did not invent the zebra cake. First, let’s talk batter– You’ll most often see chocolate and white zebra cakes (although it would be fun to try a hot pink and white zebra cake sometime!) We went the boxed cake route and bought a box of Duncan Hines Devil’s Food Cake, and a box of Duncan Hines French Vanilla. We made slight changes to the box directions: French Vanilla Cake– We used 1 cup plus 3 Tablespoons Water rather than the 1 cup that it calls for. That’s it! Let’s get started! Two bowls of batter…. Continue the process until your pans are approx 2/3 full. Hooray!

Origami Box The origami box is simple to make, and can be used to hold other origami pieces. Or important stuff, like candies. This origami box is also called Masu, which is Japanese for a square wooden box. Follow the step by step photos to make the origami box. If you prefer, we also have origami box video instructions. Made this origami? If you like this, you may also like the origami star box and origami pleated box. If you want a box with a cover, check out the origami box with cover page. Origami Box Start with a square 6" x 6" (15cm x 15cm) origami paper. Flip the sheet so that the colored side is face down. Using the mountain fold lines as guides, fold the four corners of the paper into its center. Then fold the right edge and the left edge into the centerline. Now fold the top edge down and the bottom edge up, as shown below. Then I'm going to ask you to undo the last two-and-a-half steps! The unfolded paper should like the one below. One side of the box will be formed as you do this.

Rick Rack Rosettes A friend gave me this flower ring and necklace, when she handed them to me I thought they were porcelain–there’s a very vintage feel to them. From a distance you really can’t tell that they’re made out of rick rack! Yes, rick rack! She shared how to make them with me, and now I’m sharing with all of you readers! The wow of the rosette comes from a few simple steps! She found this tutorial, in Portuguese I believe. First, cut 2 strips of rick rack. Then twist the two pieces of rick rack together, like this. And then run a stitch down one side to hold it all together. Like so. And to make the flower, you just start from one end and roll it up. Keep rolling. Until you have this–and then tuck the little tail under and hot glue it down. You’ll notice all of the petals are closed, so to open them up you just peel them back one by one. And here it is on my finger. Awesome. (Please excuse my hands, my hand model moved to Indiana, so I’m left using what I’ve got

How to make Gak (Slime) We had a few days of rain around here so we made some slime to occupy our time inside. Just two ingredients and you will be able to really impress your kids! To make simply mix equal parts of liquid starch and glue together. We placed 1/4 cup liquid starch into a sandwich bag and added about 3 drops of green food coloring. Next add in 1/4 cup glue Mix well. Take it out of the bag and have fun! Looking for more ways to impress your kids? Need a way to use up the rest of the starch? You will find other rainy day activities here. Thanks Laci for asking us how to make Gak.

Lucky Wishing Stars You’ve probably seen these little puffy origami stars before. They are really quick to make, and you don’t need any special materials to make them. You can buy lucky star pre-cut strips from origami stores, but you can just as easily make your own from medium weight coloured paper, e.g. scrapbooking paper, or even strips cut from magazine pages – as the strips are so narrow, the original text or image won’t be obvious in the finished star. Anti-clockwise from top left: pre-cut strips, paper cutter, scrapbook paper, magazine page. Now on to the tutorial! To give you an idea of size, I’ve made stars in 3 different sizes to show you: blue stars (from pre-cut strips): 35cm x 1.25cmpink stars (from a magazine page): 30cm x 1cmgreen stars (scrapbook paper): 15cm x 0.6cm The finished star will be approx 1.5 x the width of your strip, so pick an appropriate size for the size of star you’d like to end up with. For the rest of this tutorial, I will be using a paper strip cut from a magazine page.

Paper Filigree Snowflake Gallery I've switched over to using acid free paper and glue to make my paper filigree snowflake ornaments now. I figure there's no sense in putting this much work into something that might fall apart in a few years, and with practice, they're starting to get pretty enough that I'm planning to make quite a few of them. In my search for paper that will hold up over time, I was looking for archival quality paper, but there wasn't much available that wasn't too thick, or too yellow. I visited all sorts of art, craft, scrapbook, and office supply stores in my paper quest, but the pickings were pretty slim for archival paper in shades of silver and white, so I went with mostly acid free paper and will see how it holds up. There are a limited number of shapes you can make by pinching a curled sliver of paper, but I've found that looping the paper adds bunches of additional possibilities. I can't wait to find the time to experiment with more of them!
