Paper Starburst Pendant Light So I had a different project that I was going to post today, an update version of my Book Pages Pendant Lantern from Project 19, but then I started working on this light idea, and I am so excited by the results I just couldn’t wait to show you guys! My inspiration and guide was this light from Design*Sponge, that I spotted on Pinterest. I really liked the idea, and I had a roll of white vellum lying around left over from college that I thought would look beautiful. So I started cutting triangles. The roll of vellum that I was using was 24 inches long. I think I glued the pieces on much closer than they did in the Design*Sponge tutorial, but I wanted a really full look. All in all I think the light is pretty awesome, and I can’t wait to post it on Etsy, though I’m a little bit worried about shipping. So I know I need to get back to my 30x30x3 projects, but this light took me by surprise with its shape and fantastic outcome, and I just couldn’t wait to share! Ciao, Allison Like this:

Servietten-Häschen - Love Decorations Vor einigen Tagen habe ich die Linkparty Happy Ostern ins Leben gerufen und schon komme ich mit meinem ersten Beitrag passend zum Motto. Keine Sorge, ich werde ab jetzt nicht nur noch „Oster“-Post schreiben – die anderen Themenbereiche werden ebenfalls weiterhin verbloggt! Wenn die Familie und/oder Verwandtschaft an den Ostertagen so zusammen kommt, dann gibt es meistens auch etwas Außergewöhnliches zu essen. Zumindest bei den meisten. Wenn man sich schon Mühe gibt, dann richtig, gell!? Also heißt das für uns: Die richtige Tischdeko muss her. Ich erinnerte mich, dass ich vor einem Jahr auf Pinterest auf etwas gestoßen bin: Servietten gefaltet als Hasenkopf Die Idee fand ich ganz süß ♥ Nun durchforstete ich eine Anleitung nach der anderen und versuchte das Ganze nachzufalten. Eigentlich ist die ganze Falterei gar nicht so schwer – man muss nur jeden einzelnen Schritt kennen. Du brauchst: Serviette (egal, ob Papier- oder Stoffserviette) Das war mein erster Post zur Linkparty ‚Happy Ostern‚.

DIY: Paper Maché Birdy Penny Bank My friend Tara is a paper maché inspiration. A couple of years ago she made a couple of piggy banks that were so amazing I decided I needed to make a bank of my very own. A birdy bank. I love that papier maché gives you the opportunity to make basically anything out of recycled materials. A table cloth or paper cover and an apron. Step One: Starting the Paper Maché and Form Blow up one balloon about 5.5″ in diameter, and crumple up a piece of paper to make a head about 2.5″ in diameter. To make your simple paper maché paste, mix one part flour with one part water. Tear your newspaper into small strips and pieces and begin to coat your body form with a layer of newspaper. Overlap the pieces of newspaper on your form, and cover all but the tied end. When you have completely covered the form with one layer of newspaper, set it aside to dry. Step Two: Adding more Detail Since your bird looks nothing like a bird yet, it’s time to add some appendages. Yes. Step Five: Sanding and Painting

Origami Chinese Takeout Box | I Try DIY As most of you probably already know, I’m a huge fan of themed parties and decorations. I’ve used chinese takeout boxes for past events and activities, but never really got around to making them from scratch. I always used store-bought ones, and just decorated them as needed. As usual, I sat down and tried to figure out how I could origami my way into making it. I kind of did! Read on to learn how. For this tutorial, I used a double-sided square sheet of scrapbook paper (Colorbök Beach House Signature Collection). Then, I folded the square in half diagonally (both ways) to make four triangular sections. Keeping the square as a triangle, pop one corner towards the peak of the triangle. You should end up with a square that looks like this from the top. And like this from the bottom corner. Keeping your sheet of paper in that square or diamond fold. Repeat with the other side, meeting the other fold in the center. It should look something like this. Fold the open edge towards the middle fold.

Origami Square Envelope | I Try DIY This origami square tutorial does double duty. Not only can you fold your letters into a square, but you can also use it as a simple square envelope. For this tutorial, I used a sheet from the Colorbök Beach House Signature Collection, one of my favorite double-sided paper stacks. You will start out by folding the square into three. You can mark the thirds with a ruler, or use a Scoring Tool ( Amazon | I Try DIY shop ) to make things easier. Make your creases sharp, so folding is easier later on. Repeat the folds in the other direction. You should end up with nine small square sections. Next, make a diagonal fold. As you can see, when you avoid the center square section, you get a pristine unfolded base for your square envelope. Next, you’ll make more diagonal folds. If you look closely, you’ll see a pinwheel shape with the folds. Take two opposite corners, and pinch with your thumb and pointer fingers. Keeping the pinch, slowly twist both corners in a clockwise direction. And the right flap.

weaving This easy project is made from materials that you've probably already got laying around! Since I recently finished making a new batch of mini-comics, the leftover paper scraps were more than enough to cover some cardboard I would've otherwise just recycled. Instead, these throwaway items became my pretty new journals! Materials: -paper or fabric scraps -recycled cardboard -recycled newsprint -string -button (optional) Getting Prepared:Step 1: Draw a vertical line down the center of the cardboard. Step 2: Score 1/8" to the left of the line and then again 1/8" to the right. When you've finished with steps 1 and 2 you cardboard will look like this: Step 3: Fold on each of the scored lines. Decoupage: If you already have some decoupage medium, skip this step...BUT if you don't, making it is crazy easy! Step 2: Brush a thin layer of decoupage on the inside of the cardboard, then cover with a piece of paper larger than the cardboard and press down. Step 7: Cleanly trim away the excess. *Ruler *Awl *Knife
