30 til 30: Gold!

Guys, I’m SO behind with my 30 crafts in 30 days before 30 years. I hope this isn’t a premonition of this upcoming decade. Yikes! But today’s is SUPER easy. I mean, SUPER. Just get some gold spray paint, masking tape, and some kraft paper notebooks and you’re golden (te he, sorry, punny.) I picked these notebooks up in Berlin at a store I like to call “heaven” but it’s really called Modular. It’s a supplies store with anything your heart desires and Germany prices are SO amazing. Anything is compared to Denmark though.
1. Just cover the parts your want protected with masking tape. I didn’t have any at the moment so I used some cheap stuff that comes off easily. 
2. Give it a little spray from about 18″ away. It doesn’t need too much.

3. The best part is definitely the ripping off moment. Look how nice that line looks.

Voila! Now I have a few notebooks for my new studio space. Thanks to Line for helping me with the photos.
Countdown:
20 days and 26 more projects.
PS- don’t forget to enter the illustration giveaway! Last day is today!

Copenhagen + flowers + on my basket + Projects / Thursday, 17 May 2012

30 til 30: floral basket

I’m already SO far behind on my 30 ’til 30 pledge. This is not a good sign. I thought I’d kill 2 birds with 1 stone with a second installment of “On my bike” for one of my craft days. For the month of April I made aluminum flowers and this month I caved and went with fake flowers. But really, can you resist these bright, cheap puppies? They’re like a buck at Tiger and they seriously make my day every time I look at them. 

With that, I’m off to Berlin tomorrow for the weekend to attend The Hive.

So where we at? 25 days to go and 27 more projects.

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.

DIY wooden bridal spoons

Beware, wood items! I will find you and you will end up painted! Muhaha. (Exhibit A, B, now C). How cute would these be to personalize and give to a bridal couple OR give out as favors at a wedding? I did these for Brooklyn Bride
