Here’s a great idea for a table display. I love that the wax candles are held inside wax, so fragile. Try adding some dye to create different colours. For instructions visit here
Having flipped through an old copy of ‘Better Homes and gardens’ in my dentists waiting room, I came across some cool ideas for Christmas decorations using paper. I started the process but soon realized this was going to take a while to get a really good bunch together to hang on the wall and trees so I’ll come back to it another time!
What you’ll need
Different scrapbooking papers (3 of the same pattern to make one large)
String to hang them
Concertina the paper and fold in half securing with a staple
Join 3 up together with staples to form a large fan
For a smaller fan cut in half. Poke a hole at the top and thread some glittery string for christmas decorations or glue smaller ones to larger ones to make for a wall display.
So I’m heading up to the gold coast to for a weekend of seminars and realised that my old business cards are out if date. So I thought I’d quickly whip some up myself. Ordinarily I’d suggest getting your business cards done professionally, but if your in the handmade business it makes sense to have a go yourself.
Here I found some cool material I liked, scanned the image in and printed them on card. This does involve a bit of computer faffing about with formatting and I’m sure the are easier ways but today I’m impatient and want some now! The only bit I don’t like is when it comes to cutting them up, for some reason I’m terrible at using a ruler, even on the healing Matt with all the lines I seem to struggle getting straight lines!
I love nothing more than reading a good book, in fact multitasker that I am, I usually read about 3 at a time. Usually I’m ashamed to say, I keep my place with scrappy bits of paper or old crumpled receipts from the chemist. But no more, I’m going to make some of these handy little corner keepers! Maybe not in monster form but I’m sure inspiration will hit from one of my bedtime tales!
What you neeed:
2 packs of tall lighted branches
Bundle of sticks
Bag of moss
Green canvas paint
Canvas Molding Paste 16oz
Start by mixing molding paste with green paint.
Then apply to canvas to give it texture.
Let paste dry overnight, then apply green paint to give the project some depth.
After paint has dried, glue lighted branches and sticks with E6000 glue. Make sure cords are at the bottom of the painting.
Add the moss to cover the cords and create texture at the bottom.
After glue is dry, display and hang up.
