D.I.Y INKPADS

THE SUDDEN THOUGHT HIT ME THAT WITH ALL THIS CRAFTING AND DECOUPAGING THAT I WILL RATHER QUICKLY RUN OUT OF STAMPING INK PADS. I DON’T WANT TO RUN TO MICHAELS OR SEARCH ON AMAZON, SO I HAVE CREATED MY OWN VERSION. LET’S GO!!!!!

  • STEP ONE: MATERIALS: PAINT (WASHABLE), CONTAINER, A SMALL SPONGE, AND A COOL (TEMPERATURE WISE) PLACE TO STORE

  • STEP TWO: CUT YOUR SPONGE TO A SMALL SQUARE OR JUST LARGE ENOUGH TO FIT YOUR CONTAINER.

  • STEP THREE: POUR YOUR PAINT INTO THE CONTAINER AND THEN PLACE THE SPONGE. IF THE PAINT IS TOO THICK THIN IT OUT WITH 1 TEASPOON OF WATER. (OR LESS)

  • STEP FOUR: POUR MORE OF THE PAINT ON TOP OF THE SPONGE AND PLACE THE LID ONTO THE CONTAINER.

  • STORE THE CONTAINER AND USE IT AS OFTEN AS YOU LIKE.

YOU CAN MAKE MULTIPLE OF THESE AND THEY ARE SO INEXPENSIVE AND LEGIT ALL THE SUPPLIES ARE IN YOUR HOME. HOPE YOU LIKE IT!!!

A WATER BOTTLE REUSED

I SAW THIS ADORABLE PICTURE ONLINE OF A CUTE, TRENDY-LOOKING WATER BOTTLE VASE. I DECIDED WHY DON’T I DO THE WORK TO CREATE THIS SO YOU CAN ENJOY. LET’S GO!!!!!!!

  • FIRST. OF. ALL. MATERIALS. YOU’LL NEED: A EMPTY PLASTIC WATER BOTTLE, SCISSORS, AND POSSIBLY A KNIFE.

    • STEP ONE: DISCARD THE TOP RING AND LID. YOU WON’T BE NEEDING THIS.
    • STEP TWO: WATER BOTTLE UPRIGHT, USE THE SCISSORS TO CUT A LINE ACROSS THE MIDDLE OF THE BOTTLE.
    • STEP THREE: WITH YOUR NEWLY CUT BOTTOM, CREATE A FRINGE ALONG THE TOP. BASICALLY, YOU’RE CUTTING THE EDGE DOWNWARDS FEW INCHES (ABOUT 3 INCHES WILL WORK).
    • STEP FOUR: TAKE YOUR FRINGE AND BEND ALL OF THE PIECES DOWN.
  • SO NOW, ALL THAT IS LEFT IS TO POUR SOME WATER AND PLACE SOME FLOWERS

  • A COUPLE OF OTHER USES: A PENCIL HOLDER, STORAGE FOR BRACELETS AND RINGS (IN AND ON THE BENT FRINGE)

 I HOPED YOU LIKE THIS AND COMMENT DOWN BELOW WHAT YOU WANT ME TO CREATE NEXT.

SEE YOU SOON, SAANIKA THE AWESOME!

So let us get the crafting started.  All you will need is a cork board or a piece of very thick decorative cardboard or cardstock. Along with that you need magazine clippings or inspirational pictures,quotes,etc…( you get the idea).

Christmas Cards

Hey guys! It’s Saanika and today I have another D.I.Y for you guys. We are creating cards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So pretty self explanatory. Let’s get started.

First, using some white paper cut out a shape of a Christmas tree. Save the cut paper, not the actual tree.

Then take a sheet of festive green paper, glue it to the back of the white sheet of cut out paper. Trace the paper with a black Sharpie. Draw and color little ornaments onto the tree.

Lastly, write a cute message below and sign your name.

Love, Saanika
