Makekind: a guest column by laura parke of a girl who makes. This week I’m sharing a simple, yet somewhat time intensive project. It’s a catch-all of sorts made from sheets of cardboard. I did this project in steps so it didn’t seem so daunting – it’s worth it because the end product is custom and so, so useful. Here’s how to make your own!

: MATERIALS // 25 pieces of cardboard measuring 10″ x 10″, straight edge ruler, a pencil, glue, utility knife with plenty of extra blades. STEPS // 01 MEASURE YOUR TEMPLATE Using the straight edge and a pencil, measure a 1″ border on one piece of cardboard. 02 // CREATE TEMPLATE Once you have everything measured out, use a utility knife to cut out each compartment to create a template. 03 // MAKE YOUR PIECES Using your template, you’ll cut out 20 sheets of cardboard, like this: 04 // GLUE PIECES TOGETHER First, glue 5 uncut pieces of cardboard together to create a bottom. 05 // KEEP GLUING Next, take the 10 pieces that have the two cutouts and glue them right on top of the stack of cardboard.

Creating colorful bookcovers with AstroBrights Paper! BySusan MyersonAugust 2, 2012 With school time just around the corner, I came up with a school craft project that incorporates brightly colored paper. After all, a long school day could certainly use some sunshine! I created fun book covers using the technique called Iris Folding! The plan was to revamp the old version of the book cover. You know, the one that is made from a grocery bag? I used to make them all the time for my kids when they were in school. For this project I used: Several sheets of different colors of bright colored cardstock A paper grocery bagGlue StickTacky GlueScissors Begin by cutting your paper bag open as shown, and then cut off the bottom flap, so that you have one large sheet of paper. With printed side of the grocery bag up, place the book on top and fold down the top and bottom edges of the paper to match the top and bottom of the book.

Fold one end of the paper and slide the front cover of the book into the open end until the edge of the cover meets your fold.

XO – Joy! Make Your Own Photo Puzzle With Craft Sticks&|&Crafts Unleashed. I have to say, I have the cutest nieces and nephews! My own kids are getting older–thank goodness my sisters keep me in babies. I got to borrow some photos from my sister for this project, I made the puzzles for my three year old niece. These are her pesky twin brothers: She has had a blast playing with the puzzles, and matching up the colors on the back of the pieces. Here is what you will need to make your own puzzles: Select the photos you would like to use for the project. For each photo, you will need 5 craft sticks of the same color. You will want to dig through the box of craft sticks to find the ones that are the straightest. Apply adhesive to the back of your photos.

Keep in mind, the entire 4″ side of your 4×6 photo will not be used. With this photo, I decided there was enough room for cropping above the heads of my nephews. Turn the photo over, and working with the end that you DO NOT want to crop, begin placing the craft sticks on the photo. Trim the ends of the photos as well: Make This - Stab Bound&Journal - Luxe DIY. Make a hand bound journal with elaborate side stitching for yourself or as a gift. The stitching is a lot easier than it looks and is so much nicer to hold than a spiral bound edge.

Penny Countertop. Last September we finished our butcher block countertops, but we didn’t do our bar area. I mentioned in that post that I was open to suggestions and got the great idea to cover it in pennies and epoxy. Well, EIGHT months later it is finally finished! I started in December when I got the supplies for Christmas… then it was one of my No Spend February goals…then it was one of my projects for the contest over at Every Creative Endeavor….then we finally finished it in April and I put off blogging about it because I didn’t want to write the post. And that brings us to now. This is one of those projects that if I was to do it again it would be super easy. However, if any of y’all want to make a penny countertop, then you are going to LOVE me for saving you a headache. First we de-laminated the contertop to make it easy to get to the nails to remove it… except that there was NO WAY that sucker was coming off.

Next we had to figure out how we wanted our pennies. So whats the best way? Map It: DIY It | The Row House Nest. Map coasters. Do it. Spotted here. Maps are one HOT TAMALE right now… Notice that? Here, there and everywhere – maps are popping up all over the net (that makes me feel so 1990′s). No matter how you look at it, maps are a fun addition to a home – especially for those that like a good vintage map (soft spot for moi), like travelling (for real, who doesn’t like travelling?!?)

Or have sentimental love for a particular part of the world. This might be the easier one: candles and vases wrapped with a little map paper. Don’t have any wrapping paper? Lovely garland – would make for cool decor in a kids room. Ok I lied before. Multiple maps. A sweet map monogram. Heart art. Love it – re-purpose a tray! Love this map idea – get that baby use to travelling! Map table. Heart eyes. A handmade map. Magnetic map board.

Map pinwheels. Maps in embroidery hoops. DIY corkboard map. Very cool idea…. Original source unknown. Who occupies this nest? Straight From The Curls: Paper Inspired. I'm always in awe of creative thinkers and innovators. People who take simple, everyday things and make them beautiful. Case and point -- these artists, who have taken their love for words, letters, script, and literature to a whole new level. Spectacular! Who would have thunk it? So true. Brilliant idea. I wouldn't even open this gift if it came my way. Love! Xo SimiImages courtesy of Birthday Boy Pop Box Set. Today is the hubby’s birthday. He turned 29. He would probably die if he knew I was posting about him, but I don’t care – I just want to gush about how stinkin’ awesome he is. Not only is he a great father and hubby, but he’s my biggest fan, my favorite person, AND he’s my best friend in the whole world!

I feel so lucky to have him FOREVER!!! Plus, he’s pretty hot, still flirts with me, and I LOVE spending time with him more than anyone! I wanted to think of something fun to make him from me and the kids and decided to make him a Birthday Pop Box Set. I made one for Christmas and another for Valentine’s but realized I needed to make a Birthday Boy Pop Box Set too.

I made it so that it can be for DAD, BOYFRIEND/SPOUSE or SON – all the boys in your life!! Here is what you’ll need if you would like to make one too: -IBC Cream Soda Pop Bottle Set -Paint/Spray Paint -Washi Tape/Scrapbook Paper -Scissors -Jute/Twine -Hot Glue Gun -Treats/Snacks -Pop Bottle Tags 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. And CUTE. Painting on ceramics. I found this beauty at the thrift store a while back. although the coloring on this really isn't bad, i wanted to have a different color than brown. you will need rubbing alcohol a paint brush a lot of patience and this paint: americana gloss enamels by decoart so this is very simple. step one: clean the ceramic with rubbing alcohol. no need to sand or anything! Just wet a cotton ball and wipe the surface clean! Step two: get to work. be patient. this takes years. (i never exaggerate.) after one coat: after a million coats: (i think i did four-but i let each dry so painted over a course of days) i thought i had a pic, but can't find it. you should have a thick enough paint load that no underlying ceramic paint shows at all. it looks so pretty at this point!

Step three: let the paint dry for 48 hours. step four: preheat oven to 325 degrees fahrenheit (i accidentally did mine at 350 and it worked fine) step five: load in the oven and bake for 30 minutes and you're done!
