How it was done:1.Cut the 25 sheets of paper to 5 x 8 inches. Put them into 5 stacks, with 5 sheets in each stack.2.Using the bone folder, fold each of the stacks in half.3.Using the sewing machine on the widest stitch setting, sew down the center of the crease on each of the five plies.4.This is what each of the piles will look like. 5.Fold the pages in half again and pile them up neatly, with the sewn side facing out.6.Using a press, or something to keep the pile of sewn papers together, put an old board on either side of the pile and insert it all into the press.7.You can see here the paper clamped inside of the press with the two pieces of scrap board on either side.8.With a brush, spread a generous amount of glue across the paper. 11.Now cut two pieces of card stock that measure 5 x 8 inches. Fold them each in half with the bone folder. These will be the end papers for the book.12.Take the vinyl material and cut a 11 by 5.25 inch piece.

Balloon and torch lightsabres OK, ok, let's get this out of the way before we start. I know these look very inuendoish. Let's have no more mention of that!

Absolutely fab idea!

Craft DIY Projects, Patterns, How-tos, Fashion, Recipes @ Craftzine.com - Felting, Sewing, Knitting, Crocheting, Home & More Quilling, the coiling and shaping of narrow paper strips to create a design, has been around for years — hundreds, in fact. During the Renaissance, nuns and monks would roll gold-gilded paper remnants trimmed during the bookmaking process, and use them to decorate religious objects as an alternative to costly gold filigree. Quilling later became a pastime of 18th and 19th century young ladies in England, who would decorate tea caddies and pieces of furniture with paper filigree. The practice crossed the Atlantic with colonists, who added quilling to candle sconces and trays as home decorations. In all of that time, the process has remained very much the same, but quilling designs and specialty supplies have definitely caught up to the 21st century. Today some aficionados focus on making incredibly detailed 3-D figures, while others favor wall-sized museum installations.

Make and bind the ~perfect~ notebook from scratch here we're gonna try to bind a notebook with stuff you already have at home. seriously, the most "special" materials you'll need are the canvas and some beeswax (and even that's optional) but before anything else, what the hell is my definition of the perfect notebook? for me, - the pages should open up flat, like a moleskine notebook - the cover should be very stiff, so i can write on it even if it's propped on my lap - the cover should be highly customizable Put Up Your Dukes: braided scarf tutorial i have a tutorial that is forty thrillionty times easier and better than my previous (ahem, first ever...give me some grace!) tutorial. it is accessible to infinitely more people (you dont have to have a baby, OR a dress to start out with). and it is really simple. there are only 4 lines of stitching total. oh, did i mention it's mega cute and chic also: 5 weeks ago i saw this scarf on pinterest. it was pinned by a VERY popular pinner that i follow under her DIY board. i knew i had to make one for myself. but when i followed this "DIY" link, it actually led to a german store where the scarf was 35 euros ($60 shipped!).

How to grow a Rainbow Rose, Naturally In 2004, two dutch companies, River Flowers and F.J. Zandbergen, experimented and successfully grew a rose that had its petals rainbow colored. As petals get their nourishment through stem, the idea is to split the stem into several channels and dip each one in a different colored water. This way all the colors will be drawn by the stem into petals and resultant rose will have all the colors in it. diy {wire fence frame} I love organization that is both functional and beautiful. I had been looking for a way to store all the hair clips that I make for Talia (yes, I make every one!) when I came across this project over at Under The Sycamore. I made my own version with a frame I found at a thrift store priced at $3.99, the frames just happened to be 50% off that day so I actually scored it for only $1.99! I don't have a before picture of the frame (because I was too excited to get started and forgot.)
