The other day it was Norways national day and I celebrated it here in Brisbane. I have allways wanted a Norwegian Bunad, Witch is the name of several different norwegian traditional dresses. Since I cant affort getting one of those anytime soon, I desiced to decorate so black plain shoes I had lying arround. Here is the resolt I ended up with:

bunadsko1These where just made with some felt, nedle and thread and some silvery buttons.

 

MAKEUP BOXES

for this craft you need some kind of storrage system made of cardboard, or I am sure it could work with plastic or wood aswell. I got these super cheep and I thought they would be perfect to store make up an other things I dont quite know where to store. I personalized them by simply drawing on each drawer what was going to be stored in them with a permanent marker. This could be a super cute gift to someone or just something fun for yourself.

boxeslet me know if you want any more details of how to make any of these crafts. More crafts will be comming up soon :)

Thanks, see you soon!

Week 4

Hello, back this Sunday with some updates of crafting for this week, I had another family member having her birthday this time, My big sister Betina, So an other card was made. This Monday I will start uni, and I don’t know how much time I will have to craft, but ill try my best. Anyway enjoy!

Pesto pasta salad

This is my favourite salad, so I though ill chare it witch you guys. What you do is just make your base salad, with all the favourite vegetables you like, and cook some pasta, stir inn a few big scoops of pesto, and let it cool down and then mix in with the salad.

My ingredients in this salad was:

  •     Lettuce
  •     Cucumber
  •     Capsicum
  •     Red onion
  •     Sun dried tomato
  •     Olives

Tea Box

I bough a box of muffin mix, made the muffins, and then I came up with the idea of making a tea box out of it. SO what I did was tape it all together cut off the lid, and then measure and double folded parts of the lid, to use as a middle divider inside the box. Then I covered the outside in a biscuit poster that I got in the Magazine Frankie. And folded some paper I taped to the back witch says tea. Simple stuff.

Swan Necklace

This necklace is a cute touch up to simple clothing, and its not to hard to make either. All it is, – simply form a swan shape out of white clay, and then when dry paint the face on it and cover with varnish, then I covered all the white in glitter and coated with varnish again. Then for the “feathers” I bough a white yarn, and tied a bunch together, and glued them on the backside. This idea would work for most birds :) maybe even other animals!

Sketch book

So I wanted to personalize my Sketch book, that I always carry with me in my purse, and this is quite worn, because its about 1 and a half year old but, the idea here is that you could draw all kinds of fun drawings cut it out and clue it to the book and put varnish all over it, a good thing to remember is cover the whole book with varnish, not just stop covering randomly around..Like I did on my, because then you can tell :)

Birthday Card to Betina

My big sister have birthday today the 22 of July, and I had to make her a card also ofcorse. This card I based on a waffle shape, because waffles reminds me a lot of my sister, she also have the families best waffle recipe! The card has to pages with different Design, and that is relay all it is to it. Hope you have a wonderful day <3
Have a good week, pleas coment or feel free to ask about anything :)

crafty days

I bough a new coffee container the other day, and I could not get the sticker off it. So What I decided was just to make a little homemade label from what paper I had lying around in the house.  After gluing all the paper on to the glass container, I covered the paper surfaces with matt waterproof varnish, that you really can get in any craft store. Super simple, and just imagine how many things you can label like this.

A have been collecting leafs, that I thought had pretty colours, and then I just put them between some pages in a thick book, and let them be there overnight so they would dry flat, Then I covered them with matt varnish so that the leafs will last longer and not lose its colours. And with a peace of thread I just randomly placed them with tiny pegs, down the tread. Then I wrote small cute messages, to go with the theme : What makes winters cozy.


In this project, I just bough a few magnets at Bargain City and then used some nice paper I had lying around, to glue on top of them, and I also cut a few of them in smaller pieces, and stuck behind a pen, a peg, and a usb stick, Like that they will not be running around hiding somewhere ;)
I decided so make a card for my oldest aunt child, and so I went and bought some pretty paper and just, looked up a waterfall card tutorial on youtube. The waterfall is the little line of different photos, that will move like a waterfall when you pull the paper downwards. For the photos I just printed out some back white photos of my aunt child and made them look like tint Polaroid pictures. Then I added a little ribbon and a tag. For the backside I decided to make a pichock that had the ability for you to move the feathers around.

After making a card for one of my aunt children, I had to make an other one, for the other girl too, and this is just a really simple one, you basically just cut a A4 paper along the longest side about 8 cm in, and then fold it like a little stair, just make sure the step in the front is smaller than the step in the back. Then you glue different elements on the different steps witch will give the card a bit of debt, and it looks pretty. Just something different than the normal cards you see. Hopefully they will be liked!

This isn’t a very glamorous pice of work maybe, but it is a good way of recycling your plastic bottles. I basically didn’t have any pots left, and wanted to plant some oregano herbs, I ended up just cutting off the bottom of a little water bottle, pierce a few holes in the bottom, and fill it with soil. For the bottom, witch collects the leftover water, I used the bottom of a big coke bottle, it works really well, and it cost nothing :)
This is a necklace I made a little while ago, and I it was actually quite simple, This is just clay, that has been shaped and air dried, then painted, varnished and attached to a braided necklace I made out of some scarp thread. Would make excellent personal gifts to someone, and it is so easy to make.

This is all for this time, let me know if your tried any of this out, or if you have eny questions about something, or just even if you want to sag hi :D

see you!
