Handmade Kraft Cards

 This classic kraft paper pad has so many pretty papers! We love to use them for cards because the back side is blank and great for writing on. Also, it's on sale now!


We used the paper pad and a handful of random embellish to make a bunch of cards.


After we cut out the card bases, we used the leftover pieces of kraft paper for layering.


We used some red and green tags we had leftover from our Christmas tag kit. These are great for layering with the kraft papers.


It's so fun to mix up the scraps and embellishments you already have in your stash in new ways.


Don't forget to add ribbon, rhinestones or puffy stickers to add dimension.


We have these cute ice cream cone and popsicle die-cuts that look so great with these papers.


Which card is your favorite?


Do you have some supplies in your stash that would go well with our classic kraft paper pad?

DIY Tie Dye Beach Towel

 We hope you have plans to go to the beach or pool this summer. Today we're sharing a simple way to customize a plain white towel into a cute tie dye beach towel.

First up, gather your supplies. We used our new perfectly pale tie dye kit, a plain white bath towel, and elastics.

This kit is on sale this week, along with our cotton candy pack. These are our two newest tie dye packs. We love the soft color combo.

Next, dampen your towel. Be sure to wring out access water. Then, accordion fold your towel and tie every few inches with elastics. Spray the dye on both sides and into some of the folds.

Remove the elastics and lay the towel flat to dry. Once the towel is completely dry, heat set it by ironing.

That's it! Pretty simple, right? You can make unique towels for each person in your family.

Now it's time to take your pretty towel to the beach!

DIY Velvet Paper Poinsettia

 Velvet paper is so lush and lovely for winter! There are so many great project ideas. A few years ago we made some really pretty gift bows with velvet paper. Today we are showing a poinsettia we made. This could be used for a table accent, gift bow, holiday card, or on a scrapbook layout.

We created 4 sizes of a simple 5-point flower. We cut the largest out of green velvet paper and the other 3 out of red velvet. After layering the flowers, we attached some yellow gems to the center.

Isn't this velvet paper lovely? What would you use a velvet poinsettia for?

Natural Fade Tie Dye Projects

 We love fall! Maybe it's not typically the time you think of tie dye. But, we created this natural fade kit a while back and we love these colors for fall, especially the mustard, sage, and orchid.

Aren't these colors lovely?


The first project we made was a t-shirt. This traditional spiral would be so fun to do with a cute white hoodie too!


We started with a damp t-shirt, twisted it into a spiral and divided it into 8 sections

Then we sprayed one color into each section and let air dry completely. 

Don't forget to iron to heat set the colors once it's completely dry to make them permanent.

We love how the t-shirt turned out and decided to do a little bag too. 

The process is pretty much the same. But, instead of a spiral design, we tied this one in straight lines.


The last item we dyed was a plain white baseball cap. Instead of tying this, we sprayed the dye directly on the hat. Which project is your favorite?

Tie Dye Halloween Leggings

We love doing fun holiday tie die projects. So, we decided to make some Halloween leggings this year.

We are really happy about how they turned out and would love to try some more Halloween tie dye projects.


For this project, we used some creamy heather leggings, orange and black tie dye, elastics, and an iron. First, we got our leggings damp so the dye would blend well.


We decided to do the spiral method. But, rather than starting our spiral on the center, we started it on the upper side of one leg.


Keep spinning your spiral around until the leggings are in a circle like this.


Wrap elastics around dividing your leggings into 6 pie-shaped sections. Alternate spraying orange and black on each section. Don't forget to spray the back also.


Once your leggings are completely air dry, you can open them up and heat set by ironing throughly. That's it! Done! What do you think?


Happy Halloween, everyone!

Fall Shirt DIY Autumn Leaves and Pumpkin Please

Fall is coming right up! We love the sights, smells, and sounds of fall. How about you? 

When we saw this adorable shirt saying, we knew we had to make a shirt with our cute iron-ons.


For this project we decided to mix two font styles, type and honey.


First, cut out the letters you want to use.


Arrange your letters to decide how you want them placed.


Place each letter individually and iron into place. We used a piece of paper as a tool to help us line the bottom of the letters up straight.

Peel off the film after ironing each letter on.


That's it! What do you think? Would you make a shirt with this saying or something else?


Happy fall, y'all!

Sunset Tie Dye Kit

Summer is the perfect time to try tie dye! Our tie dye kits are all ready to use. So, you can take your supplies out on the grass and have fun with your friends.


One of our favorite tie dye kits for summer time is the sunset 3-pack. These colors are so summery and bright! We used the bulls eye method for this shirt. But, we started the bulls eye off to the side of the shirt.

We hope you've had a wonderful summer! Check back again soon for more ideas.

DIY Back-to-School Shirt for Teachers or Students

The stores are reminding us that it's almost back-to-school time. How about making a special shirt for the first day of school? 


Our iron-ons are great for making custom shirts. You could spell "first day of 3rd grade", "I'm just here for the recess" or anything else you'd like. Today we are sharing a shirt we designed for a Kindergarten teacher.


All you need is a shirt, iron-ons, and iron. There are lot's of fonts to choose from. But, we decided to use our 2" sport letters to go along with the team theme.

Peel the letters off the iron-on sheet and arrange them how you want on the shirt.


Press the letters onto the shirt with an iron. Then, turn the shirt over and iron the back.


That's it! Done! What would you spell on your back-to-school shirt? What font is your favorite?

Cute & Easy DIY Tie Dye Shirts and Galaxy Tie Dye

We hope you are enjoying the tie dye projects we have been sharing lately. Today we wanted to show you this cute photo we took showing some of the projects we made with our different tie dye kits. From left to right the kits we used were the primary 3-pack, neon 8-pack, neon 3-pack, galaxy 8-pack, classic 8-pack, and spring 3-pack.

One kit we haven't shown on our blog before is the galaxy 8-pack. This kit is so fun to experiment with! For this shirt, we scrunch it a little and sprayed to get variation of color. Then, we opened the shirt and sprayed similar colors together. 


Leaving some white "starry" areas is important to get the galaxy look. You can sprinkle rock salt on your shirt to get this affect. For this shirt, we used the stream method. After you are done spraying your dye, spray some water on your shirt in areas you want to lighten. Then, use a paper towel to lift up some of the dye. Then, you can spray some of the glow-in-the dark dye into those light areas.


How would you use the galaxy dye? Would you make a shirt like us, try it on leggings, make a fun bag, or something else?
