How to make a scratch off lottery ticket?
You probably know the scratch off lottery tickets? Ever wondered how to make them? Well, they are very fun & easy to make.I used to make greeting cards from them but now I'm going to use this technique as a promotional tool.I made 25 scratch off tickets and will include 1 ticket with every order I ship.On one of those tickets, there is a coupon code and a value of 25 dollars to spend in my shop on Etsy. Waaaahhh, exciting! :) Here is what you need:cardboard, a print-out of your lottery ticket, glue stick, sticky back plastic (contact paper), metallic acrylic paint (preferably silver) and washing liquid.I prepared the paper cutting beforehand so I'll skip that part in the tutorial. :) Beforehand you print out a design that you want to be on the scratch off lottery tickets.If your printer can take thick paper you can print it directly on the cardboard and skip this part. Then you take a piece of sticky back plastic and put it onto the design. And then... scratch!

Rick Rack Scarf I recently unearthed the first project I ever knit, a moth-eaten stockinette scarf. I made it over twenty years ago while I was spending a school year in rural France.

waiting Here's a picture of me waiting in the Radcliffe library for my date with a boy named J.D. His short stories are brilliant and have been published in The New Yorker, but I fear, entre nous, that he may be a little too misanthropic for me. Speaking of fiction, don't you love the outfit? You can make a giant flower like this white one by cutting up old t-shirts. Look! Cut a strip of t-shirt fabric, stitch down the middle, gather, fold in half lengthwise, and roll it up. Pinspiration: Book Balls When I saw these hanging balls on Pinterest, I knew that I wanted to try to make some for my house. After following the link I found out that these were in a store front. I decided that I wanted them in my house. So, I took some old lanterns that I had and started. I took the lid of a Volcano candle, and old book and started tracing page after page of circles. Once I had tons of circles cut out I began glueing them from the bottom of the lantern up.

Galaxy Handbag (and heels!) I have to admit - I'm typically not a glitter kind of girl. But as of a few days ago, that might have changed...or least when it comes to ultra fine glitter. I've always thought it's pretty, especially when I'm looking at entire spectrum of colors. My heart totally skips a beat whenever I look at something in many colors, all lined up - like these Proenza Schouler satchel bags or the mineral eyeshadows at Bare Escentuals boutiques OR this Prisamcolor Premier Pencil Wood Box Set... But when I decided that an old black H;M purse of mine needed a makeover, I decided to give some ultra fine glitter a shot. So glad I did!

Honestly WTF Ok, it’s official. I ready to finally visit the melting pot that is Panama. Seeing photos of the new American Trade Hotel sealed the deal for me – it’s located in the 340 year old Casco Viejo neighborhood of the city and is a collaboration between the Ace Hotel Group and Conservatorio, a Casco real estate development company dedicated to revitalizing the neighborhood. The 50 room boutique hotel is oozing with Latin American flavor with white stucco walls, ceiling fans and patterned tiles.
