I’ve decided to make the move to a self hosted blog so I can have more control over the look and feel of allthingshandmade.org.
For anyone who has subscribed by email then you don’t need to do anything, you will still receive notifications of new posts by email. It’s all my lovely wordpress.com followers that will miss out and I’m hoping that you will all visit my new site and re-subscribe so you don’t miss anything.
I hope to see you all on the other side and thank you for your continued support.
I discovered these Free Luxury Best of British Papers in my Craft Beautiful magazine a few weeks ago and decided today I would make something with them!
I’m forever using post it notes as bookmarks so I thought I’d create something a bit more fun! I downloaded the free printable and created the bookmarks in Photoshop but they could also be made by simply printing the papers and then cutting and sticking them together??
I cut a slit in the middle of the design and simply pushed a paper clip through.
If anybody fancies making some bookmarks or needs any free papers check out Craft Beautiful’s archive, they have a nice collection.
I’ve just made this crochet pencil pot cover. I’m not the best crocheter in the world, but I made it by creating a circle motif the same width as a baked bean tin. Then crocheted a rectangle wide enough to fit around the diameter of a baked beans tin and finished with shell edging. I stitched them together and hey presto……….
I love little heart charms and door knob decorations and I’ve been trying to think of a simple handmade project I could do and share with you.
A few weeks ago I blogged about Handmade Valentine Gifts and came across Michele’s Sunkissed Heart Wreath.
Michele’s tutorial inspired me to come up with my own string hearts, Michele uses balloons to create a hollow heart wreath but I’ve created solid heart decorations using built up cardboard, I built the cardboard up to create a 3D effect and I’ve include a tutorial on how to create your very own.
I’ve made 2 heart decorations, a smaller one as a key ring charm and a larger heart as a door knob decoration.
Let me know what you think……
