Just like my 2022 post review, I also check to see what videos created in 2022 were the most popular. That review told me it was the year of the YouTube shorts. Shorts were new this year and I created a series of crafting tips in short form. These were the most viewed so I guess more crafting tips shorts are in store for 2023.
Here are the top five popular YouTube videos from 2022:
I am happy to see that three of the videos are craft tutorials because that is what I focus on. The other two are sharing important products sent to me to use, which is also a big part of making this site possible. Let me know if there are any tutorials or reviews you’d like to see in 2022.
Need a frame? They are so easy to make with cardstock. Using a personal cutting machine makes it that much easier. They are very sturdy. Thick enough to also be used as a shadow box. The frames were really easy to make and rather addictive. Fold your own paper frame with this free SVG file.
Open the file in Design Space, ungroup. Select all and then center the two layers vertically and horizontally. Then attach, change the red box to score, and then cut.

How to make inexpensive floral embellishments from Dollar Tree materials.
I have had so much fun making these colorful flowers. Would you believe me if I told you I spent a total of two dollars and I haven’t even made a dent in my supplies? OK, the colors came from a variety of products I already had on hand so I guess you could argue it costs more. I share with you a variety of different techniques so hopefully, it will cover some products you already own and will not need to purchase. Plus, you can make these flowers into the colors you need specifically for your craft project.

I found that placing the leaves on the back of the flowers left some glue dot uncovered, which could be used to adhere the flowers to my projects. I decided to place a glue dot on the back of all of the flowers and place them on a coated surface for storage.
