I made a little collapsible tray for my husband to put on his desk to hold his stuff (like keys, lighters, etc.). The corners have velcro so that can flatten it and take it with you when you travel. Seems very handy to bring to hotels. I used the tutorial from here, but have since found an easier one. The rounded corners were a pain in the butt, so next time I think I’ll just try the tutorial from Noodle Head.
After seeing the bandanna I stenciled last week, my other friends wanted a custom designed Flosstradamus logo too. One friend loves Naruto, so I took the sharingan eye image and added the Flosstradamus logo to the middle. For my other friend who loves working out, I made a protein powder bottle with the logo. They are totally ready for their EDM festival next weekend.
I’ve been looking on Pinterest for craft table ideas and decided to try and make the one from Organize & Decorate Everything. It was the perfect size for my small craft room and was less than $60! I bought the 2 bookshelves from Walmart for $16 each. The tutorial said to get the Mainstays brand 3-shelf bookshelf. Then I bought the Linnmon table top from IKEA for $26.
When I assembled the bookshelves, I realized they were SUPER flimsy! They swayed back and forth and in no way were sturdy enough. So tomorrow I will get some “L” brackets from Home Depot and fix this. Also I’m not going to add the back to the bookshelf so that I can access everything from both sides.
I can’t wait to make some fabric baskets for storage.
Another wedding is coming up and I designed these party favor tags. We filled the jars up with coffee beans and added “The Perfect Blend” and “Love is Brewing” sayings to each one. Using the same shimmer cardstock I made matching escort cards. The fonts I used were Palace Script MT and Linux Biolinum.
Finally after moving, putting in new flooring and hosting a 3-day housewarming party, my craft room is back in business. First thing was I had to fulfill some Etsy orders. Next my friend wanted me to make some custom stenciled bandannas for an EDM event she was attending.
She is a huge fan of both Flosstradamus and french fries so we designed something incorporating her favorite things. I then cut out the stencil on freezer paper with my Silhouette and we painted with regular craft acrylic paint.
