HOW TO MAKE A FUN DIY BUTTON STORAGE IDEA

  Inside: how to make a fun DIY button storage idea   I have too many buttons! My storage for them was too small and I had to find a solution…fast. I knew I wanted to organize my buttons by color in small containers, but I wanted all the containers to be in one place and be close to me, so I can reach for them whenever I need a button or two. I also wanted to use an empty space on the wall above my desk that I could easily reach.       Finally came up with the idea to create a magnetic surface and attach containers to it and hang it on the wall.   MAKING A BUTTON STORAGE IDEA   I always try to make my own storage solutions from stuff I have around the house so I can reuse them. This way I reuse what I already have instead of throwing it away. If don’t …

Folding card – Tutorial

I made this folding card as one of the designs for the MY Punch August kit. It looks complicated but it is actually very easy once you know where to cut and fold. The hard work is to cut all the squares that come on it. So this is how it’s done: 1. Cut a double sided cardstock 12″ by 5.5″. 2. Make 4 folds at 2″, 4″, 8″, 10″ 3. Turn the cardstock and make 2 cuts at 1.5″ and 4″. Cut only from the first fold to the last fold. 4. Fold the card, starting from the left: first fold – mountain (out), second fold – valley (in), then mountain again and end with a valley fold. 5. Change two of the folds: the inner second fold turns out and the third fold turns in. 6. Now you have the basic card and you need to embellish it. Cut 2 sets of squares: The first set 1/4 of …

What do you think am I cute?

I usually design layouts for other people. They’re either my clients who order custom made scrapbooks, or my kids whom their photos make the most of our family’s scrapbooks. So I hardly design a layout with my photo. This time I made an exception. I designed a layout for my baby photos. The paper I used is a paper of my own design. It is called Words and it is part of the TIME line. The Time line incorporates two themes: time and masculine. The different papers have more of a masculine feel to them and they all have time theme on them. This paper has words around all four sides, all of them relate to time. But despite the masculine vibe this paper fitted perfectly to my photos. I am a big fan of circles so I decided to cut all the photos into circles and go from there. I added embellishments and some more circles. I also used …

A recipe for…

I am a big fan of recyceling. I love altered art and the fact that you can take something and turn it to something completly different. Every week I throw the milk carton and think to my self, if only I could do something with it…  and then I thought of a great ides: A recipe box! I will turn the milk carton to a special place for my recipes.  All the recipes will be written on cards and they will be organized, standing up right, in the box.  After I washed it I covered it with paper. I cut the box on three sides, leaving the back intact. Keeping it closed was tricky, I wanted it to be nice but strong, so I decided to use a ribbon that can be tied and opened. The only question was how to connect the ribbon to both sides.                                                                       For the bottom part I used a chipboard tag and for the upper part I used …
