If you guys remember the 3D Origami Pig I showed here a few months ago, then you’ll see the clear similarities to this monkey here! This one was also from a kit by the same company, and it was just as easy to use as the pig!
As much as I love crochet, sometimes life just calls you to try other crafts! Lately I’ve been trying my hand at making cards, and it’s been a lot of fun. I’m definitely far from making Hallmark-level cards, but I like the freedom to design a card the way I want. Plus it’s nice to be able to have a little handmade card to accompany a handmade gift!
Confession: I’m a sucker for personalization. I love the idea of being able to customize things to reflect your own story and so things like Pandora really appeal to me. However, sometimes I find the standard Pandora bracelet a bit much to wear with a casual outfit, especially if I’m already wearing a watch and the charms keep clinking against the watch face. Therefore, I like to get creative with the charms so that I can add my own twist!
When Chapters offered me $30 of free store-credit through their Plum Rewards program, I jumped at the chance to pick up some new books for crafting!
I don’t know about you, but I definitely had an origami phase when I was younger. In elementary school, our teacher showed us a new book about 3-D origami, and I thought it was so neat how these little pieces could come together to make something so intricate!
I learned how to make my first friendship bracelet when I was 12 or so. Of course, it wasn’t half as fancy as this one – just a simple diagonal pattern was about all I could handle. Still, the nice thing about friendship bracelets is that once you learn the two knots, you can make anything!
The first thing I propose isn’t exactly a craft, but it is definitely something that counts as a “do it yourself”!
