Dolce and Gabbana FLower Sunglasses celebrate the boy tutorial: basic boys wallet I first want to say thank you to Dana and Rae for hosting such an awesome event. If you haven't been indulging in all the fun already, go check out both of their blogs for lots of great inspiration. There has already been so many great ideas!

Tsumami Kanzashi Flower Hair Clip I have recently discovered these beautiful folded flowers, and I absolutely cannot stop making them. Tsumami Kanzashi are traditional Japanese folded flowers, made from small squares of silk, that are typically worn by women as hair ornaments in traditional hairstyles. They seem really complicated and intricate, and they can certainly be that if you really want; but it completely doesn't need to be! I love to make them out of cotton prints that are fun and bright, in addition to scraps of silk and other light fabrics. These can be used in countless applications. There are a few tutorials out there on the internet, but to find a good variety in petal shapes can certainly be difficult, you just have to keep looking, and just grab a square of fabric and just test stuff out.

Felt brooch Since I still haven't done any new crafting due to spending my time on the home clean up and organization project, today I'm sharing another project I made as a Christmas gift. Remember my fall felt brooch? I wore it when we visited my mother-in-law for Thanksgiving and she had a fit about it. Again, I used my good ol' Sizzix and flower dies. Thanks for stopping by. I'm linking my brooch up here: Take a Look Tuesday Get Your Craft On Tute Yourself Tuesday Getting Krafy with It Fabulous Friday Finds Flaunt It Friday

Fabric flower brooch Back during the summer when I got interested in fabric and all those great flowers everyone was making, I tried my hand at a couple. I finally got around to deciding how I might use these flowers and added the pin backs this weekend so it could be a brooch.

I'll be linking up to Get Your Craft On and other great parties.

Eye on Fashion: DIY:Lanvin necklace From now on Matter Of Style will be in italian too to conquer the heart of my own country readers too. First attempt to make the Lanvin at H&M necklace available in pink and in red. This necklace is made with opaque beads and stamped pieces we don't have. When i first saw the necklace i tought it was a little bit eccessive, the bold colors make it look a little naive and childish. The version 1.0 of my reproduced necklace is with pearls. I used pearls of 4 different dimensions. Da oggi Matter Of Style è anche in italiano per conquistare il cuore dei connazionali!! Per quella che io chiamerei la versione 1.0 della collana ho utilizzato perle di 4 dimensone diverse (acquistate tutte in una scatola a co.import negozio di accessori per la casa) utilizzando le più grandi per sostituire gli elementi stampati. LAnvin necklace $3000 sorry for the quality of the pics, they have been taken with a phone

Super Simple Diy Ring | The Little Brown House. Tweet! When I say super simple I mean…. super simple… as in, I am almost embarrassed to do a tutorial on it Almost, but not quite! Maybe there are some of you out there like me that like things that look impressive but were actually easy.. I am a fairly recent convert to costume jewelry, but, as with every thing in my life, I jumped in with both feet. So when I discovered I could make my own I was very excited! I can be fickle in my tastes in colors and styles, and I feel alot less guilty about casting aside something that was only a couple of bucks to begin with. So – with that – here you go! I started with some buttons.. We will be ignoring the butterfly ones for now – they will be featured in an upcoming post. I pulled out my handy E6000 adhesive that I used on my first ring making experience The Secret Life Of A Crafting Blogger And one of the ring backs that I got from Ebay. ( please excuse the purple hands – I am firing the photographer as I type this..) Then pressed the button into the glue.
