One of my go-to ways of wrapping small presents if by making these adorable pillow boxes. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of We R Memory Keeper’s Pillow Box Punch Board, but still go back to the DIY method for custom sizing. You can read back to the step-by-step tutorial I wrote back when the blog was still new. I’ve also been asked to make a video tutorial for it, so here you go!
I remember trying this simple face towel trick as a kid! Nothing’s cuter than a fuzzy bunny carrying around some colorful easter eggs, right?
I’ve always been fascinated with letters, words, typography and calligraphy. That is not to say I’m actually good at doing it myself. I’ve previously written a tutorial explaining how to “fake” calligraphy if your skills aren’t quite up to par just yet. I’ve been asked to make a video tutorial for it, so here you go!
I’ve seen candles with pressed flowers, and have always wondered how I could cheat making them. By that, I mean, not having to dip candles and make them from scratch myself. Yes, I know I could (and I should actually try to DIY right?), but I wanted an easy way out. Here’s the quick “cheat” method!
I still remember how I learned to fold letters into origami hearts like these. It was sometime in highschool. I had received a letter folded into this cute little heart. I had left it in my room while I was off to school. When I got back home, that letter was unraveled on my bed. Whoever snooped to read it, couldn’t put back the humpty dumpty of a letter back together again. Did a heart-shaped letter scream love letter? I was pretty pissed off back then, but I find it extremely funny now. Read on to learn how to make an origami heart. (Scroll down to the very end to watch a video tutorial instead!)
When I got back to crafting a few years ago, the first big project I took on was The Friendship Bracelet Book. When I designed and made all those thirty or so bracelets, I went straight to DMC Philippines for my thread. I had remembered stealing the same ones from my Mom’s cross stitch thread stash and used them to make my bracelets instead.
So, my aunt managed to find a copy of this Negosiyete reel from the early 90s. I guess I have been “teaching” crafts for a LOOOONG time. The file’s audio was really, really, really bad. Did a music overlay instead.
