 Burlap Canvas Display As part of the Michael’s Makers team I will be creating crafty challenges each month. The challenge this month was to choose a product from the raw bar and and I chose the burlap stretched canvas to create a  Burlap Canvas Display.

Next month Michaels Stores is releasing a new line of products called Raw Bar and guess who got a little sneak peek, ME! I can’t wait for you to see this line so be on the lookout starting on August 8th because it will be available in all Michaels stores nationwide.  Michaels created the Raw Bar because customers requested raw surfaces that are unfinished and easily craft-able.

The Raw Bar is made by materials that are completely inspired by nature and some of the surfaces include wood, metal, canvas, chalkboard, cork, and burlap. Are you in mad love yet?

You will need:
♥Canvas Burlap
♥Cork Ribbon
♥Chalkboard Spray Paint
♥Miniature Easel
♥Wooden Spools
♥Twine
♥Scissors
♥Glue Gun

I know what you are thinking when you see this cork ribbon, “where has this been my whole life”… I will say it’s not thick enough to stick a tack through and hold something up but it’s very pliable and easy to work with. It’s truly the perfect “natural” touch to add to any craft you are working on! DSC_0479

I purchased this miniature easel from Michaels and they are so precious.  DSC_0485

Step ONE ♥ Spray paint your easel and wooden spools. You might have to spray one side and wait for it to dry before you move on to coat the rest.
DSC_0486

Step TWO  ♥ Once your wooden spools are dry you can add a dab of hot glue to one side of the spool.  DSC_0489

Step THREE  ♥ Carefully place the wooden spools on the top two corners of your canvas. These can be used merely for decoration or you can hang trinkets from them. Very versatile.  DSC_0487

I love the contrast of the black chalk paint against the burlap canvas. It’s very natural and shabby chic.  DSC_0491

Step FOUR ♥ Tear off a piece of cork ribbon. You will flip when you feel how awesome this ribbon is. I can see little girls already with cork bows in their beautiful hair.  DSC_0496

Step FIVE ♥ Once you cut a decent length of ribbon off of the roll, you will fold it up a few times like below. You will then get your scissors and cut directly in the middle.  DSC_0497

Step SIX ♥ Turn your burlap canvas over and place your cork ribbon along the back side to figure our how long or short you want your hanger to be.  DSC_0498

Step SEVEN ♥ Once you decide on the length of your ribbon add a line of hot glue down the back side of your canvas and quickly place the ribbon on top of it. Careful not to burn yourself! Or if you do just yell really loud and you will feel MUCH better!  DSC_0500

This is what your canvas will look like once you are done with the ribbon.  DSC_0501

Step EIGHT ♥ Make sure your easel is sprayed completely with the chalkboard spray and once it’s dry add hot glue to the back side of the easel.  DSC_0502

Step NINE ♥ Place the easel directly in the middle of the canvas. How cute is this! DSC_0505

Step TEN ♥ This is optional but I added a little clothespin that is a part of the line at the very top of the easel. I’ll tell ya, hot glue is like magic ♥

Now we can hang things from the spools, clip something with the clothespin or open up the easel and place a picture or anything that makes you happy on it.  DSC_0507

I think this would be so cute in a bathroom, bedroom, office space or in a spot where you want to display cute things.  burlap canvas display

July Challenge: Raw Bar


“Hip Hop Hooray, Hoooo” for the DIY Leather Cuff we are making today… Right about here you can insert a big old turquoise rock in my mouth. For some reason I am listening to sad, sad music on my computer but that song is BLASTING in my head. It’s probably because Marisa Pawelco’s die cuts are amaze-balls!

timthumb

I am all about buying leather cuffs because let’s face it it’s easier and most of us don’t have the patience to sit there and cut a perfect line on leather. Remember when I made this one! I think Marisa though of all the impatient people out there when she designed her line with Sizzix!

♥→Today I will show you how to use an awesome crafting tool and how to create the most unique leather cuff using it.

DIY Leather Cuff If you are like me then you are totally in love with this turquoise rock! Let’s get started.
you will need
Scraps of Leather \ Brush \ Adhesive Bling \ Scissors \ Yarn \ Fabric Paint (optional) \ Sizzix Sophisticate Machine Only \  Sizzix Originals Die: Chained \ Sizzix Originals Die : Fashion Cuff

Hey! If you want to purchase any of the items I used in this tutorial you can click on the links above and get them all from the SAME spot! They are affiliate links which means you are helping me buy more glitter and gold to make you happy crafts!

leather cuff supplies The Sophisticate machine comes with a few parts that you will have to assemble, but don’t worry it’s simple! sizzix marisa pawelko

1. Insert the handle into the side of machine
2. Use the screw driver that came with the machine to secure screw inside of the handle
3. Insert the rubber cap that covers the hole

VOILA! Pretty simple huh! sizziz die cut

On each side of your die cut machine you press where the sticker is and the sides will flip open.  marisa pawelko sizzix machine

These are the two die cuts we will be using today.

P.S. Do not remove the foam and be careful because the metal inside the rubber is really sharp.
Said no one who sliced their finger trying to “dissect” the chains.
marisa pawelko die cuts

You have two cutting pads that come with the machine and you will need both every time you cut something.
marisa pawelko

To start you will lay out your leather scrap and place one of  the cutting pads on top. With a pair of fabric scissors cut as close around the pad as you can. This does not have to be “perfect”, we just don’t want too much hanging off the edges.

This is how you will layer everything before we start inserting it into the machine.
1st layer: Cutting Pad
2nd layer: Die Cut of choice
3rd layer: Leather
4th layer: Cutting pad.

It’s like a crafty sandwich. Speaking of sandwiches, I think I want one with chips smashed on it.

Keep it all together nice and neat while inserting into the machine. The great thing is it’s convenient for anyone regardless if you are right handed or left.

Shoots, you can even do it with your feet if you want.  making leather cuffs

This is what it will look like when you run it completely through the machine. How amazing! It’s like a slice of heaven on a platter. Check out how precise it cuts and those dots…PERFECTION. easy leather cuff

I love how detailed all of her die cuts are. Check out the chains! I have so many ideas just looking at them.

I am also in love with the negative space in this leather. You can even use this as a stencil now. leather diy

I am using shiny lion brand yarn for my string. I love this tan color. If you don’t like the way I am attaching the yarn you can simply tie a knot or put a chain on the ends. It’s really so versatile.  7.jpg

Today I will be showing you how I made this “Waterproof Duck Tape Beach Bag”.  I created this for FISKARS and you can get the full tutorial by clicking on the link above. 

I know what you are thinking. Is it “wine” or “beer” proof. I have not officially tried it but having a bag this cute on my shoulder I would assume it would hold anything that could possibly be dear to my heart. That would include BEER and WINE.

Yep. I am from the South. Yep when you spill any wine or beer we literally call it “alcohol abuse”. HEHE!

This bag was so much fun to make and I am totally digging the big pink and white stripes. It’s bold, bright and beautiful. I will say this, I see ton’s of other bags in my near future. Duck Tape’s neon colors are the best thing to make a bag with and they always look great paired with a clean crisp white. ENJOY!

Duck Tape Organizing Caddy I don’t know about you but I absolutely love mini organizing stations. Sometimes a good one can be hard to come by which is why today I am going to show you an easy way to create a duck tape organizing caddy. One that can go in any space,literally. The one thing I love about this caddy is you can choose the exact design or color of Duck Tape that you want! You can use this for a craft station, wrapping station, art station or a toy station. Let’s get started!

You will need:
Wooden Stool ( I am using a natural color but you can paint them if you want)
Duck Tape (your choice of color)
Fiskars Non Stick Scissors
Trash Bag (any color)

DIY CADDY

duck tape caddy The great thing about this crafts is choosing the colors you want! The Duck brand has so many options now I am certain you will not get stuck in that department.

I will tell you if you are a duck tape fan these scissors are a must. They glide through the tape without sticking and we all know that makes our crafting a dream come true. Fiskars created these scissors specifically for The Duck Brand. They come in two different sizes and you won’t regret getting both sizes!

duck edition fiskars scissors

DIY VINTAGE BOTTLE LABELS Step 1: Cut the sides of your trash bag and lay it out on a flat surface.
Step 2: Lay your stool on it’s side. It does not matter which side you work with initially.
Step 3: Grab a marker and trace out the “inside” of the side section.
Step 4: Reverse the stool and trace the same section like below.
Step 5: Cover the entire section of your outline with duck tape. It’s ok if the tape runs over the outlines.  DSC_0958 This is what it will look like when it’s done completely filled.

duck tape crafts Step 6: Flip your trash bag over. You will still see your sharpie line even when flipped over. Kinda cool huh! duck tape crafts Step 7: Grab your Fiskars duck edition scissors and cut along the lines.   duck tape pouch

duck tape fashion Step 8: Fold your cut out in half. This is the start of a bag that will hang on the stool.
bags made with duck tape
Step 9: Place a strip of duck tape along the side of the bag leaving enough hanging over the edge to fold on the other side.  duck tape bag

Step 10: Cut off the excess along the “bottom” of the bag. DO NOT cut the top pieces off.
fiskars duck edition scissors
These are the top straps. Because there is some sticky tape exposed we will use this to hang the bag onto the stool.  plastic bag crafts hanging basket diy

If you want to make a large bag do the same thing. Lay the stool out sideways and trace out the top and bottom section, twice.  stool ideas Fill in the space like you did earlier for the small bag. how to make a bag Cut out your pieces making sure to not cut the sections in half. We want this bag to be long! We are doing the same steps as we did for the small bag. Pretty simple ey! duck tape fashion crafts
Place one piece on top of the other. If you have any piece that looks too long you can trim it now.
decorative duck tape
Tape up the sides and bottom, trimming the excess when done. For this bag I cut the top straps because I will show you how to make your own straps.  patterned duck tape bags
To make the straps take a strip of duck tape and cut it in half. You can just place these on the back side of a bag you make then attach it to a bar on your stool. Once you get going on these bags they will get easier and easier.

You can spice up your bag by adding a strip of duck tape along the bottom. Take a strip fold the top part down a little then adhere it to the bag with the sticky part.

Happy July 1st! Let’s clear up a few things.

♥Today I am sharing my latest post “HOW TO MAKE A GALAXY SHIRT” on the I Love To Create Blog! You really can’t miss this one because one it’s SUPER cool and two it’s super COOL! It’s like if you could combine the universe and a shirt together. Pah!

♥Having trouble feeling “HAPPY”, check out how I get out of my funky mood when it springs on me like a boomerang.

♥This whole Mercury Retrograde shenanigans is finally over today around 5pm. Not sure what this means, let me tell you. Pretend you are on this big flaming ball (for the last month) and there is NO air or breeze, you are burning but, not burning. Enduring it all while trying to eat a blow pop or an icee. Pretty much impossible right. Still confused? Read this to understand

♥Onto bigger and better things. I won’t tell you because you have to check out the video to see for yourself! OK fine. I will give you a hint, if you love TIE-DYE then you will LOVE this video!

I am so excited to share with you these fabulous Tie Dyed Shorts I created for the I love to create blog. I first started the project with intentions of just tie-dying but one thing led to another and next thing I knew lace made it’s way into the picture.

I totally did something different with these shorts and you won’t find out the “technique” I used unless you check out the FULL tutorial (get the link at the bottom of post)

Let me know if you like the colors, lace or the stripes. These are really versatile and you can wear them with so many things. I also believe the process of how I made these can be used for so many other projects depending on your mood.

Don’t forget Orange is the New Black premiered today so make sure to check it out on Netflix! Check out this tutorial I made for the new season! You will love it.

If you are not familiar with the show it’s about a girl named Piper who is very educated and high class. She made a horrible choice and smuggled drugs for her girlfriend and is sentenced to a year in prison. Shocked! HAHA. Through out the season you learn more and more about each inmate and each of their stories. It’s pretty dramatic and leaves you dreaming of the next episode. I promise you if you have not seen it you must catch up on Season 1 now!

Orange-is-the-new-Black-2

enhanced-buzz-30020-1377125549-0

My craft is based on the duck tape slippers that inmate Sophia Burset, a transgender inmate wears in the show. Piper is new in the slammer and she takes her first shower and sophia informs her how important it is to protect your feet, honey child. 

You will need:
*Flip Flops
*Scissors
*Sharpie
*Silver Duck Tape
*Cardboard

DSC_0630

The first thing you will do is place your flip flop on your cardboard in a secure spot.

DSC_0632

Next thing you will do is trace it out.  DSC_0633

Carefully cut out your tracing using sharp scissors.  DSC_0637

When you are done you will have two cut outs.  DSC_0639

Start by placing strips of silver duck tape across your cardboard cutouts. When you are done wrap the tape on the sides to cover them.  DSC_0640 This is what they will start to look like once you cover them.

DSC_0641 I am using a shiny heart filled duck tape for the top part of the flip flop.  DSC_0642  Cut two strips of shiny duck tape while making sure one is longer than the other. I guessed the length and everyones size is going to be different based on the size of your own flip flop size.  DSC_0643 Peel the backs off of each one and place the smaller strip directly on top of the large strip.

DSC_0645

DSC_0646

You will take that sticky piece on the end and place it under the cardboard bottom.  DSC_0649

Flap it around and stick the other side.  DSC_0650

I am totally happy with the way these babies turned out! I hope you have fun for you and the upcoming season of Orange is the New Black! DSC_0659
