MAD SKILLS PARTY #252

  WELCOME TO THE 252nd MAD SKILLS PARTY!   For the Mad Skills party, you can link up a post, old or new, to share with other readers. The only rule for the party is that the post MUST BE A TUTORIAL. The tutorial can be written, pictorial, or a combination of the two, but it should be a project or a process that another crafter would be able to replicate. Any Mad Skill level, from novice to advanced, is welcome!   I like to be able to thank all of you for participating in the … [Read More...]

RORSCHACH BUTTERFLY TEA TOWELS

Two years ago, I made some Spring decorations inspired by beautiful designer fabric.  One of those projects was a tutorial for lightning fast painted butterflies made in the same way as a Rorschach ink blot.  This year I wondered if I could use that same technique on fabric.  I busted out my fabric paints and went to town on cheap tea towels, and this is the pretty result. Let the paint dry completely and then they can be laundered like any other towels. You can make … [Read More...]

DOHVINCI SLIME PORTRAITS

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of DohVinci for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. I am an old school Nickelodeon girl.  Kids nowadays probably don't know the origins of Nickelodeon slime.  I vividly remember watching "You Can't Say That on Television" when my parents weren't around (because they hated it), and seeing the cast members get buckets of nasty green slime dumped on their heads any time they said, "I don't know."  I secretly wished I was one of … [Read More...]

STAINED GLASS EASTER EGGS

This is a sponsored post.  I was compensated for my work, but the opinions are 100% my own. After taking a little time off from live crafting, I am back with another Crafty Hangout!  This month’s projects are sponsored by Consumer Crafts, and all the bloggers were challenged to make a project that can be made in less than 10 minutes.  You can easily make several of the stained glass eggs in that 10 minute time frame, so they are a perfect craft if you are crunched for … [Read More...]

SCRAPBOOK PAPER PARTY FAVOR BOXES

This is a sponsored post.  I was compensated for my work, but the opinions are 100% my own.  I have been slightly envious of all the awesome We R Memory Keepers products out there.  I love that so many of their products multi-task, so you are able to make several different projects with one tool.  That’s the case with the 1-2-3 Punch Board and the Banner Punch Board.  With each board you can easily create handmade party decor and gift items all with one tool.  I … [Read More...]

MARQUEE HEART MADE FROM A CEREAL BOX & DUCK TAPE

After five years of craft and home blogging, it’s kind of a miracle that this is my first attempt at a marquee light DIY.  The variations of the idea are everywhere, so I didn’t have to reinvent the wheel for this tutorial.  My version can be made quickly and with items you might already have around the house!   I am sharing this project as part of the new round of Craft Lightning.  As always, 30 Minute Crafts and The Country Chic Cottage are behind the series, but this … [Read More...]
