Looking for last minute party favor or gift box? Then look no further, these printable pillow boxes are the perfect solution.
You know how much I love little gift boxes. They're so fun to put together and can make even the simplest gift look extra special. Today I'm sharing a free printable pillow box template. This style of box is one of favourites to use for treats and party favors as they're quick and easy to assemble and can be easily customised using ribbons, tags and stamps.
I first made a version of these diy pillow boxes a couple of years ago and if you're interested in making this style box from scratch then I recommend popping over and checking them out here. For those of you who are short on time or don't fancy all the measuring and scoring then this printable is for you. Pick out your favourite scrapbook paper or cardstock and get printing.
Easter wouldn't be Easter without a bunny or two would it? Learn how to fold a cute inflatable origami bunny rabbit. They're fun to make all year round but particularly in Spring with Easter right around the corner.
You know how much I love origami. It's such a great no mess craft, no glue, no sticky tape or scissors, just a couple of squares of pretty paper and you're ready to go.
There are many different kinds of origami rabbits (you can find my origami bunny baskets here) but these puffy bunnies are one of the easiest to make. Did you ever make paper waterbombs as a kid? If you did then you're going to be halfway there with these origami bunnies. Instead of filling with water though you blow them up like a little balloon. So clever.
1. Lay your paper colour side up. I used this origami paper stack. Fold in half, open flat, rotate 90 degrees. Fold in half again and open flat.
2. Turn your paper over and fold in diagonally and in both directions.
3. Fold flat to make a triangle by bringing both sides in to meet at the bottom centre point. This is called a waterbomb base.
4. Take the left point of the triangle and fold up to meet the top center point of the triangle. Repeat on the other side.
5. Fold the 2 edges in to meet at the middle.
6. Fold the top front flaps down to meet in the middle and then fold again this time diagonally.
7. Open the flaps back up and tuck it into the pocket.
8. Flip your paper over and fold the bottom corners into the middle. You should now have a diamond shape.
9. Fold the right flap to the left. Fold in to the center and then move it back to the right.
10. Fold the left flap to the right. Fold in to the center and then move back to the left.
11. Now to make the ears. Take the top flaps and fold them out at diagonals. Open the ears out by running a finger along the inside of each ear.
12. To inflate the bunny blow gently into the nose.
And if you want to add an extra special touch you could give your bunnies a cute mini pom pom tail.
Aren't they cute? Make a whole family of bunnies and scatter them across the table as a sweet Easter decoration.
P.S. If you love this origami paper as much as I do, you can find it here.
Happy Friday everyone. I've got 3 cracking diy's to share with you today.
First up is this gorgeous giant Matisse inspired backdrop from Oh Happy Day. It's designed to be used a photo booth style background but like Holly said in the comments how amazing would it look as permanent mural on your wall. I think it would look fantastic in a kids bedroom.
Second is this massive diy rainbow wall hanging from Studio Diy. It took Kelly nearly a year to make this seriously impressive latch hook rainbow and I think you'll agree it was worth every second. I don't know if I'm be brave enough to try making one as big as this but I think a smaller version would look just as cute.
And finally is this diy leather woven storage basket from Club Crafted. I'm always looking for new ways to store all those random bits and pieces I have lying around cluttering up my desk. A bunch of these leather baskets could be just the trick. I hope you have a lovely weekend and I'll see you back here next week.
We had a lovely few bright and sunny days over the weekend. While it wasn't warm the weather totally had me fooled that Spring was on it's way. Inspired by the lovely blue skies and full of the joys of Spring I started making some pretty pastel desktop and phone wallpapers to share with you.
When I woke up this morning and looked out the window however the road was covered in snow. Snow! So much for Spring. And while this means I may have to wait a tiny bit longer for some warmer weather, luckily I don't have to wait to have a Spring inspired wallpaper on my phone. And neither do you.
Here's my 9 pretty pastel wallpapers to make waiting for the sunny weather a bit more bearable.
