30 til 30: Mexican picado banners

So, if you’re just joining in, I’m making 30 crafts in the 30 days prior to turning 30. This weekend I made some geometric Mexican picado banners to go along with the pinata for a friend’s Mexican themed party on Saturday. I used Jenny’s instructions found here. They were an absolute cinch to make and I love how they fill the space. I made some more for my new workshop to make the space feel more than it is right now.

DIY fruit balloons

I was at our cute little niece’s house and she had these neon balloons in her room that all of a sudden reminded me of fruit (does that happen to you ever? You accidentally mistake something for something else and then boom, you get a new idea?). I thought they’d be perfect for the fruit party we’ve been wanting to do forever. See the full instructions on Oh Happy Day.

Paper flower branch candelabra

I give the most boring titles to my DIY projects. In my heart I want to pull an Anne Shirley and call this the “Flowers make my heart hurt of beautiful rainbow goodness” but sometimes you just gotta restrain. I created this piece for Styled Magazine’s ALL FLORAL issue. Yes, florals call for all caps. Tiger, one of my favorite stores in Denmark (think dollar store but awesome) has an amazing array of colored candles and I picked some up ages ago thinking, “oh yeah, I need a whole rainbow of candles to add to my collection of stuff for my little apartment” And look, I put them to use. And of course added lots of flowers to it.

For full instructions head on over here.

Photobooth oversized engagement ring props

I was asked to do another DIY for the Etsy blog and I LOVE how it turned out. You know my love of all things oversized so it was natural that I choose something in that category. I’ve always been a bit scared of origami for some reason. Maybe because it looks so precise and exact? And I’m totally not always that. Anywhoo, this origami diamond was easy and really makes a statement, doncha think? I’ll include pictures here but no text so for complete instructions go to the Etsy blog.

And a HUGE thank you to Heidi from I’m with Leia who at the last minute raced (with her darling little one) over to pose as a model in terrific yellow. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Carnival ticket business cards

 
Last fall when my sister and I were shopping for fun materials, I stopped dead in my tracks when I came across these beautiful sherbet carnival tickets. I didn’t know WHAT I was going to use them for I just knew they were amazing and had to be a part of my life. Watermelon, lemon, mint, bubble gum, orange…yummy. Well, I finally figured it out…they are my new business cards.
First, I got a custom rubber stamp made with my info and then I got my stamping game on. Well, in full disclosure, my patient husband got his stamping game on. He’s very nice. And loves me a lot.
I thought it’d be fun at networking events (like The Hive in May) to go around with rolls of tickets and then people can choose their color. I ALSO thought it’d be super fun to act as if they were money and I was super rich and took a swim in them like Duck Tales. If only that were true…I’ll be sticking the Duck Tales outtakes on the Facebook page.
