WASHI TAPE SPOONS

DIY Washi Tape Spoon Tutorial | www.whatdandidnext.com

With under three weeks to go, 1st birthday party preparations are in full swing around here. When Rei Baby is sleeping of course, because trying to craft with an exploring almost-one-year-old is next to impossible. So while she has been down napping this afternoon, I quickly made these DIY washi tape spoons. I say quickly because they are super easy – I made 48 in about 1/2 an hour. The other good news is, these washi tape spoons work out to cost about 32¢ each. Yay!

2015 PRINTABLE CALENDAR

2015 Printable A4 Calendar

Black and white and bold typography is so hot right now (if you’re unsure of the trend check out the Blacklist Studio range –  so cool!). And probably because I’m still dreaming of that warehouse/loft that I one day want to live in, I’m also a huge fan of industrial chic. So what could be more perfect than a bold fonted, black and white calendar printed on A4 and mounted on an old school clipboard (is it totally lame that I just had to google the difference between old school and old skool???)…

DIY EMBROIDERY HOOP ART

DIY Hoop Embroidery Art Set of 3

These took less than 30 minutes each to make? No? How cool is that and they were soooooo cheap to make too. Because I used scrap fabrics I only had to buy the embroidery hoops which I think were about $2 each. The other thing that I love about this style is it embraces any mistakes you make.
