I’m not the biggest fan of Kraft brand products, e.g. mac ‘n cheese or mayonnaise, but I am, however, a fan of kraft paper. These lovely save-the-dates are constructed with kraft paper and baker’s twine (and undoubtedly a dash of tender loving care). If you’re planning a wedding on a budget, I’d suggest trying out this tut - it’s the right balance of elegance and creativity.
And now for a beautiful paper flower tutorial. I would never have thought to use baking paper for anything other than … baking. I think these baking paper flowers would definitely look lovely in a bakery, no?
Here’s one jellyfish that’s ok to touch and won’t require anyone to urinate on your skin in the event you get stung by it! This jellyfish paper lamp looks like a creature/alien from the movie “The Abyss.”
Once Wed is quickly becoming a favorite site of mine. I could spend hours upon hours perusing the numerous photos of decor, dresses, food, and everything else that goes into making a wedding. I love that they have an entire section of the site completed dedicated to DIY (a trend among wedding blogs I’ve been noticing as of late).
I fell instantly in love with this particular DIY Bridesmaid Thank You Cards. The colors and materials used are so soft and delicate and everything I would think of related to weddings.
How does your garden grow?
Don’t have much of a green thumb? Never fear, with the help of your crafty thumb and this plantable seeded paper flowers tutorial from @howdoesshe which puts Martha Stewart to shame, you could have a garden that would be the envy of all your neighbors. Well, until the rains came =)
I don’t think these beautiful, brightly colored wallflowers are aptly named! They scream, “LOOK AT ME!” much too loudly, but not in an annoying tone.
And now, a roundup of toilet paper arts & crafts:
If you’ve got a tutorial or toilet paper art installation of your own, I’d LOVE to see it. Send an email to paperfinds[at]gmail.com to share photos!
I sense summer projects/parties on the horizon. I’ve been scouting the interwebs for semi-quick and semi-easy tutorials for decorating said parties and I happened upon this diy for colorful modern mobiles. I think they’d work well for kids parties, too, if I play around with the color combination.
