THINGS I'VE MADE FROM THINGS I'VE PINNED - DIY ORIGAMI VASES.

DIY ORIGAMI VASES

Hey. Just popping in quickly to share these origami vases I made using a fantastic tutorial I found on Pinterest. It's been a while since I've made something using a tutorial I've pinned. I need to do it more often. It seems like such a pity to pin these things but never actually make them.

You can find the tutorial over on Love Decorations. I made 2 and put an empty jam jar in each one. I'm using one as a pen pot and the other as a vase to hold my crepe paper peonies.

Have you got any tutorials you've pinned that you'd love to make? I think I might try this one next or maybe something like this. Argh, it's so hard to choose.

Hello and happy Monday. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Did you do anything nice? We went for a walk along the coast to blow away the cobwebs and ate a lot of food. The highlight being a giant chili hot dog followed by the most amazing lime creme brulee with mini coconut macaroons.

Today I've got some pretty floral desktop wallpapers to share with you. I made them using a download from The Fabled Graphics on Creative Market. You can download the graphics for free for the next 6 days. I'm in love with those painted style chalky flowers. Aren't they fantastic?

DIY BINDER CLIP NOTEBOOKS.

Bind your notebooks with this quick and simple binder clip bookbinding method.

I always carry a notebook around with me. It's something I've done since school but it's only been the last couple of years that I started making my own. I first saw this bookbinding technique over on Sea Lemon's YouTube channel back in February and I think it might be the easiest bookbinding method I've ever seen.

SUPPLIES: Scoreboard and bone folder, A5 printer paper, coloured cardstock, binder clips, stickers to decorate and a paper trimmer.

Bind your notebooks with this quick and simple binder clip bookbinding method.

1. Trim down your card to the same size as your pages. I chose to make mine A5.

2. Measure your binder clips and score a line just in front of where your clips will be. This lets your cover fold open easily and not crease. Do this for the front and back covers.

3. Sandwich your pages between your front and back covers and secure with a couple of binder clips.

4. Gently squeeze the binder clip handles together. You should be able to remove one side first and then the other.

5. To finish decorate with your chosen stickers.

I got my stickers in the sale for a £1 in New Look, you might have seen me sharing them on Instagram. Is anyone else as obsessed as I am with Instagram stories? I love seeing the little behind the scenes snippets of people's lives.

So, what do you think? Pretty easy, right? And the great thing about them is you can refill them as much as you like. Simply attach the metal handles to the clips again, open them out and swap out the pages.
