The original blog post is in Portugese but you can translate it to English using Google Translate. This project would be perfect for a children party with a circus theme or a bachelor’s party giveaway. What do you think?
I tend not to throw out calendars because of the high quality of the gorgeous images in them. It seems like a waste even when the years over. I have discovered that the back images are the perfect size for pendants. I make them with scrabble tiles but any size or shaped pendant would do.
glue (I used mod podge and tacky glue but most clear, strong glues should work)
1. Hold your tile firmly to the page and cut around it. You can also make a template with a square you don’t want to use if you find it easier to cut holding paper to paper.
2. Brush an even coat of glue (mod podge) over the tile and secure the paper over it.
3. Glue (tacky glue) the bail onto the back of the pendant. Hold for a few minutes to make sure it sets properly.
4. Evenly spread diamond glaze over the top for a great glossy finish! I let it set for about a day to make sure the glaze is no longer tacky but it seems to be dry within a few hours.
Enjoy! xoxo Lorelai

We receive a sewing small kit and got to select from two different styles of the brooch design. Marie instructed us on how to lay down beads and sequins in the two hour workshop. Each bead and sequin is laid down and sewn one by one.
I just love how therapeutic embroidery is like what Marie mentioned. I’m already planning to embroider a design on a pillow and bought all the materials for my next project. Stay tuned.

If you’d like to highlight the design of your wax seal by using a pigment as a second color, make sure that you select a metallic pigment. If you use a regular ink pad the ink will not stick to the sealing wax leaving you with blobs of ink.
I just love this DIY wooden cake stand tutorial from Once Wed. We had help getting them made from the local woodcutter. The most important thing is to make sure that the wood is dry and that you use food safe flowers.
