I am so sorry for not posting sooner but the summer holidays have hit and for me that means I have to make lots of birthday presents for friends and family. So far I have made 2 presents and I have started another 2. The first one I have already given so I can tell you about it but you will have to wait for the other 3. I made this lovely Sesame Street t-shirt for my sister.
It is almost my birthday and on my birthday I am going to get the arc punch from staples. In the next couple of weeks I will be using it to make myself a planner. In preparation to this I have made a playlist on YouTube with ideas for making your own planner that works for you. Also it has been over a year since I launched this website and I hope that it has helped lots of people with their craft projects etc. and that it will carry on doing so.
Rossana Panisino’s YouTube channel is fantastic she has a playlist called Nerdy Nummies and the things she bakes are awesome.
Today I bring you a tutorial from sealemonDIY on how to make a book press. Which I hope to make in the near future. I think that using a wooden cutting boards are a perfect solution as there heavy, durable and easy to drill through.
Iwas on you tube,yes,again. And I pieced together a Book Binding – How To playlist. I hope it inspires you to make stacks and stacks of handmade books.
For Christmas I received a plain black 2013 Planner, which I loved as it is very useful. But me always looking for an opportunity to do some craft I decided to decorate the front. First of all I used my butterfly punch to punch out several butterfly’s from some purple paper. I then stuck them on and coated the front cover in Mod Podge, I love Mod Podge! Before the Mod Podge dried I sprinkled some purple fairy dust and some green glitter on top. Once it had fully dried I coated it in Mod Podge once more. I thought the back looked a bit odd plain when the front was beautifully decorated so I decoupaged that side as well. But this time it had a geeky theme.
So I was on YouTube,I do love You Tube there’s so many crafty channels on there that inspire me. Today I found out about a channel called Kmckay Designs, she does lots of crafts to do with organisation and she has lots of PDFs to print off which makes it easy-easy. She especially has great projects to do with kids. You can access her website here.
I found this video particularly inspired by this book binding tutorial.
This is one of the quick crafts that you can do and are perfect for gifts. They are incredibly easy to mass produce and excellent for a last minute gift.
Please share with me of your bookmark designs. You could even choose a different shape. For more help go to simple-serendpities.
