The big week of bookmarks

Hi again :) so just a little quick update, It’s not huge amount of crafts this week, but, i though id share with you guys a few. I am doing a few christmas gift, that I might or might not show to you in the few coming weeks.

Bird Necklaces

This is a cute little thing you can do right now. These seeds can be found everywhere at the moment, and their perfect shape for birds. I used white paint, and black marker to draw my little birds. If you have white marker pen, that would probably be easier to draw with. :) Then I just used transparent nail polish to cover them up so they want come off with rain. I also hot glued on some circles so they can be connected to a necklace chain. On the little owl, I also added a ribbon.

 

Birthdaycard

My Best friend Gyda had her birthday on the 9 of september, and I was hoping this was going to turn up in time, but it came a bit late. This card had a little crown that you could slide off the card and put on your head, to celebrate yourself ;)  I made this by measuring head size, and then staple it together , cutting little pyramids that I glued circles on. Then I covered the paper with glue and poured glitter on top. This was not the best idea, because the glitter didn’t stick well. I suggest you buy a paper that already has glitter and you save yourself and the birthday girl for a lot of mess :P sorry Gyda <3

Book Marks

All the bookmarks together

If you want to make your own design using my template, this is how I did it, This is offcors not the only way to do it.
On number 6 I have flipped the fox arround so that your gluing the background on the back. Just though id make that clear, if its anything else your concern or wonder about, just ask. And also if you really like these little bookmarks, you can jump online at Etsy and buy them for $3 there :) http://www.etsy.com/listing/109054940/panda-bookmark-for-your-favourit-book?ref=sr_gallery_6&ga_search_query=panda+bookmark&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=AU&ga_min=0&ga_max=0&ga_search_type=all&ga_facet=panda+bookmark

Tooth Fairy

With this little necklace I tried to make it look like a white stone was a tooth and then I made a little tooth fairy in illustrator, printed it our and glued it on top of the stone. Then I hot glued the little norwegian coin to the back of the stone. So it’s bascically suppose to be a little tooth fairy transforming the tooth into a coin. the problem here is that the stone don’t look that much like a tooth and that the fairy is so tiny and you can’t see her very clearly. It was just a try, sometimes it work sometime it doesn’t. though id show yous anyway :)

See you again 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 :)
