Washi Tape Headbands

washi-tale-headband

This is the most simple project….and it’s actually an idea that Q my 5 year-old came up with.  She is the best and so creative.  She did this one day and I thought, “what a great idea that is!”  She even staged a lot of this shoot which  I think is so awesome.  I love when she joins me in my shenanigans.  This is a fun project you can use for any age of girl. SUPPLIES:  All you need is blank headbands.  They have a great supply over at Hairbow Supplies Etc.  The only other thing is washi tape.  Easy enough. HAVE I TOLD YOU I LOVE WASHI TAPE!!!!  I do…that’s all.   You can use any type of washi tape for this projects.  I noticed that when Q and I were making these, that patterned tapes look different when they are on the headband.  Ones I thought would be cute, didn’t necessarily look cute and visa versa.  So try out [Read More...]

Today I’m sharing  a really easy way to customize your calendars with one of my favorite craft supplies—washi tape!  For this project you need: Any kind of calendar–I really love my dry erase calendar from Poppy Seed Projects (I used the Lemon Quatrefoil calendar with the Eleanor frame, Brooklyn trim, & I also got the magnetic backing) Sand paper Paint (I used spray paint) Dry erase marker Black Sharpie permanent marker variety of Washi Tape–it’s a thin, sort of papery non-permanent crafting tape that comes in a ton of different colors and patterns First, grab your calendar–it can be a paper one, a dry erase one, a planner–whatever you are using. For mine, I got a dry erase calendar kit from Poppy Seed Projects as I mentioned above—they are so cute, and did you know that our Crafting Chick Jamie designed the calendars? They are darling! I sanded the unfinished frame and trim, making sure to wipe off any dust, and then I spray [Read More...]

Summer Journals

summer journals-1

This is not a brand new idea by any means, but I just wanted to share our summer journals that we made this past week. It was a quick and fairly simple little project—hopefully it will help our kids get their writing practice in while school is out, plus it will be fun to keep a record of fun summer memories and other random thoughts, in their own words. (yes, I know summer has nearly reached its halfway point for us, but I was determined to make these anyway!) Supplies you can use to make a summer journal: Plain notebooks Fun patterned paper Mod Podge Craft Paint (I used Spa Blue by Decoart) Craft brushes Washi Tape (I found most of them at Target!) I don’t have a step-by-step tutorial today but I’ll share the basics! 1.   I traced the shape of the notebooks onto the scrapbook paper and cut the paper out. 2.   Then I took a foam craft [Read More...]
