These adorable mini baskets are easy and fun to make. They are made from construction paper which is inexpensive however, you could use different paper. I bought my paper at the Dollar Tree, it was the Crayola brand. They would make cute little treat baskets for a wedding or a baby shower. How would you use them? What would you put in them?

These beautiful napkin rings are made from a soda can. The can was cut with scissors and the leaf shapes were cut with a die and then colored. This is a great recycle or repurpose project. You can make as many as you need for your table setting and you can make them in different colors depending upon what season you are planning to use them.
These are the four dies that were used from Maker’s Movement.
You know craft supplies are expensive, but not all of them have to be. Did you know you can make your own shimmer spray? And, the materials can be found at the dollar store for significant savings. This shimmer spray hack works just as well and costs so much less, I had to give it a try and share the results with you.

All the materials listed above can be found at your local dollar store.
I learned about dendrite painting by watching videos on YouTube. I knew I needed to try it. What I didn’t know was how addictive it was going to be. It was so much fun and the results have a variety of differences dependant upon what paint you use and the amount of paint. Then you can layer it and “try” to control it.
I was so excited to receive a variety of alcohol inks from Marabu. Alcohol ink can be used in a variety of different ways. Since I like to make jewelry, I wanted to try a new technique with alcohol ink on metal. The results are stunning!

Directions: Cut your soda can with a pair of scissors. If you would like to see a tutorial on how to do this, use the following link. [cutting a soda can] Once cut and washed, I flatten the aluminum and emboss it.
Place the aluminum can in the embossing folder and run it through your die-cutting machine.
Here is the embossed aluminum.
We will cut the aluminum the same way we cut the faux leather with a die and the die cutting machine.
Here are the finished earrings:
round on dark blue faux leather
teardrop on dark blue faux leather
triangular on purple faux leather
and if you look to the left, I have one more pair to make but I can’t decided what color faux leather to use if any at all

As a part of the design team at ScraPerfect, I post twice a month on their blog. Today I have a video tutorial to teach how to make shopping bags or pockets for crafting. I originally saw a gentleman making these in his store for his sales and I knew I wanted to make some to craft with. They are quick and easy to make using the Best Glue Ever.
I made four pairs of earrings for $1! I first saw a friend hall these really cute tassel paperclips from the Dollar Tree and I immediately thought, “those would make cute earrings!” So when I finally found them at my Dollar Tree, I grabbed them. With a few extra materials that I already had on hand, I made earrings for $1 total with 8 gold paperclips to boot!
A special thanks to Maker’s Movement for the jump rings and ear wires.
