Lucky in Love St. Patrick’s Day Card and Pedestal

Today we have a guest post from Stefanie Girard from Sweater Surgery! She’ll be sharing with us an easy way to decorate for St. Patrick’s day. For more great tutorials, be sure to check out her blog!

Stefanie Girard, St. Patrick's Day

Good thing we have lots of holidays to celebrate as it gives all of us card makers and crafters lots of reasons to get our paper, recycled cardboard, and die cutter out. After crafting with my heart dies for Valentine’s Day, I knew I could then use them to make clovers and shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day and that is just what I did for this card.

IMG_3040

In addition to die cutting 3 hearts to make the clover for the card, I die cut the words “lucky”, “in,” and “love” using all different fonts and dies with my Sizzix die cutter. To make the stem of the clover I just trimmed by hand a scrap of the green glitter paper I used for all the other elements.

IMG_3043

In addition to my Lucky in Love St. Patrick’s day card, I wanted to make a little pedestal for my vintage wedding cake bride and groom. The glitter cardstock was a bit too flimsy so I went to my pantry-one of my best sources of recycled cardboard. A Chex cereal box was perfect! I was careful where I die cut the cardboard as to maximize the green areas of the box. I did add a small square of the coordinating green plaid paper on the top of the die cut pedestal for an added element.

I hope you have fun with this “green” craft and are lucky enough to celebrate St. Patrick’s day with someone you love!

10+ Wine Bottle Crafts for Galentine’s Day

We know that everyone is getting excited about Valentine’s Day this year. It’s all hearts and roses and chocolates and cupids everywhere! But let’s not forget the holiday that comes before Valentine’s Day, and is arguably even more important than the fabled day of romance.

We’re talking about Galentine’s Day!

Galentine’s Day is February 13th, the day before Valentine’s Day. Galentine’s Day is about celebrating all of the wonderful women in your life. The day was originally created by Leslie Knope, Amy Poehler’s character on the wonderful television show Parks and Recreation. Every year, Leslie spent the day before Valentine’s Day with all her female friends, celebrating their friendship and their love for each other.

This idea has become so popular, that Galentine’s Day celebrations are now a common occurrence across the country! And why shouldn’t they be? We love the idea of women coming together to celebrate each other and to celebrate their friendships. So in honor of Galentine’s Day, we’ve collected some of our favorite recycled crafts for you and your female friends to tackle together.

Wine Bottle Crafts for Galentine's Day

This collection of Wine Bottle Crafts for Galentine’s Day is the perfect way to make use of any old and empty wine bottles still lying around your house. Why throw those perfectly nice bottles in the trash when you can put them to good use in your home? And let’s be honest. There’s a chance that you and your friends might go through a few wine bottles when you get together to celebrate Galentine’s Day… might as well have something crafty to do with them afterwards!

Crafts that are good for the environment are also good for your wallet. For tons of kids’ recycled craft ideas check out 20+ Crafts for Kids to Make from Recycled Items or our free kids’ recycled crafts eBook.

Another great way to craft in a thrifty fashion is by using scraps: fabric scraps, paper scraps, yarn scraps; really any scraps you have lying around. Instead of throwing away these scraps, craft with them. Just because they’re scraps to begin with, doesn’t mean that they’ll look like scraps when the project is complete.

Kids’ Scrap Fabric Projects for Decorating

letter-scrap-craft

The fun with fabric scraps is that you can have a ton of different patterns and colors and still create a cohesive design. The mix of designs makes for a funky and fun decoration in a little kid’s room. It’s so awesome for the little ones to see their artwork displayed. It reminds them that they are worthy and that you are proud of what they’ve done. I love the Letter Scrap Craft because even toddlers can make it, which means that at two, your little one can have a hand in designing his room.
