Hey guys, 

Today I recovered a clipboard, and it went well, so I shall post about it.  ūüėõ

It was really easy, once I removed the paper that was previously covering it.  First, I covered it with a piece of cardstock.  It is a bit hard to see with the bad picture, but I did have to glue an extra sliver on the left side.  However, I did not bother to do the very top.

Then I did the same on the back, though I covered the whole thing.

Next, I covered it in contact paper.  I didn’t have a big enough piece, so I did have to piece it together a bit.

And some gold washitape on the bottom…

…and on the clip.  I traced the shape on the tape, then cut it out and used Mod Podge to glue then on.

And that’s it!

I hope you guys like it!


After reading through this post, I realized that I am writing a little more formally.  I never use the word ‘shall.’  It’s because I’m reading a book set in the midevil times, and the more formal language is starting to make an impression! ūüėČ


Paper Snowflake

Hey guys,

I realize that it has been a while since I last posted. ¬†Schoolwork has left me with almost no time to craft and bake, much less post about it, so I’ve decided to post when I can, but it will be far from regular. ¬†Hopefully, I will be able to do some Christmas posts in the next few days!

Okay, so for today, I made some cool snowflakes.  There is a good tutorial on The Other Side of Neutral, but I wanted to try my own.


  • Paper: You can use any size.
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Paper Cutter: Scissors work fine, but using a paper cutter makes sure they are straight and is much faster.
  • Glue: You can use a glue stick or bottle.


  1.  Cut 12 strips of paper.  I made mine 1/2 an inch thick.
  2.  Take 4 of the strips and fold each of them in half.
  3. Glue two of the four together to make an ‘x’. ¬†Make sure they are perpendicular to each other. ¬†Mine don’t look like they are in the picture. ¬†Glue the other two the same way.IMG_3688.JPG
  4. ¬†Set one ‘x’ aside, then flip the other one over. ¬†*Make sure you flip it over! ¬†It really does matter.*
  5.  Take two more strips of paper and glue them like this.img_3689
  6.  Do the same to the one you set aside.
  7.  Flip it over again, and turn it so that the three strips are vertical.
  8.  Glue your next two strips down.  I put two blue glue dots to show where to stick the paper.
  9.  Do the same thing to the other one.
  10. ¬†Next, switch strips that I’ve highlighted in blue and pink so that the blue is on the bottom and the pink is on top. ¬†Do that to all four corners so it has a ‘weaved’ look.imageedit_2_8445385403img_3693
  11.  Again, do it to the other one.
  12.  Take the same strips from the steps above and glue the ends together like this.img_3696
  13.  Do that to all the corners on both pieces.

Now you have two pieces that look like this:IMG_3698.JPG

14.  Flip one of the pieces over and place it on top of the other, so that each of the corners line up with one of the strips.


Ignore the lens cap that got in the picture. ¬†ūüėČ

15.  Thread the strips through the middle of the point.IMG_3703.JPG

15.  Glue the ends of each of the strips to the points of the snowflake, like this.

You’re done!


I hope you like it; if you have any questions, leave them in the comments!


Plastic Cup Planter

Hey all,

This is a cute and easy fix to a problem I had for a little bit.¬† A while ago, in my post on a macram√© plant hanger, I mentioned that¬†I’ve attempted a little gardening.¬† Well, my flowers outgrew their cute little jar, and I had to find something bigger to plant them in.¬† So for a little bit, I just had them in a plastic cup.¬† But of course, I wanted to make it cute.¬† I think it turned out well, and it wasn’t to hard!


Plastic Cup

Mod Podge

Scrap Fabric


Cut the top of the cup down a bit so you don’t have the rim.


Cut a piece of fabric big enough to cover the entire cup.¬† Since the cup is bigger at the top than it is the bottom, the pattern of you fabric may end up crooked, so I recommend not choosing a fabric with stripes of something that will look weird when it’s crooked.

Use Mod Podge to glue it down.


imageAnd plant a flower!¬† The flower I have in there now is still in its cup from before,¬†which is a little taller so you can see the blue sticking out at the top.¬† ūüôā¬† I hope you guys like it!



Another Notebook


And a third notebook. ¬† The idea for this one came from one that had pictures instead of different patterned paper, but I’m not sure which I like better. ¬†I guess the one with the pictures would be more personalized, but this one is kinda fun because it reminds me of spring with all the different colors and patterns!


Cover the front and back of your notebook with card stock so you don’t see the pattern of the notebook underneath. ¬†I also take the black paper off of the binding.

Once you get the shape of your triangle figured out, this one’s easy. ¬†Just cut out a bunch of them from different paper…

And glue them onto the front of the notebook.  I covered the binding with washi tape, and you are done!

There you go!


Airplane Notebook


I just did this super cute notebook, and it turned out really well. ¬†After I made this¬†sheet music covered notebook, I have been wanting to try a new one, so here it is…

I copied the drawing from this one on Etsy, but changed the binding.   To start, all I did was take the black paper off the binding and covered the front and back with brown construction paper.  Then I traced out the drawing with pencil and went over it with a pen.

For the white, I used a white colored pencil.

Turquoise washi tape on the edge,

And some cute stripy stuff, too!
All done!  Hope you guys like it!
