Festive Stars made from Recycled Drinks Cans November 1st, 2011 I’m preparing for a couple of craft fairs (details coming soon) at the moment and decided to have a go at making some Festive decorations by recycling some drinks cans I’ve been collecting.

How to turn almost anything into a freakin’ huge bow for wedding decor or fashion! Have you ever looked a big fluffy gift bow and thought "How the hell do they make that?" Well, it turns out you can totally DIY gift bows — nice, big, fluffy ones out of almost any paper good. I'm going to make one out of a map. But you can make them from fancy ribbon, of course, or from recycled materials, too — comic strips from the Sunday paper, ribbon from an old VHS tape, pages of an outdated calendar, anything you can cut into strips and twist into loops can be made into a gorgeous bow.

page corner bookmarks This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks.

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!

DIY Under Cabinet Lazy Susan {Rotating Organizer Stand Like many, I find the storage space I do have quickly fills up; no matter how much I seem to have, I always seem to never have enough. In an effort to maximize the storage space underneath my little guys bath vanity, I put together this simple lazy susan using just a couple purchased supplies and few items around the house.

The finished project actually turned out cuter than expected and can be used for a multitude of purposes {such as a rotating dessert tray or condiment stand} I almost feel bad putting it underneath the sink.
