Hello and happy Friday. It's a Bank Holiday weekend here in the U.K. so I'm looking forward to an extra long weekend and maybe a day trip or two depending on the weather. Fingers crossed it doesn't rain. Here's a few of my favourites from around the web this week.

3. Looking forward to seeing this film.

4. Got a party planned this Summer. Try this Diy Pinapple Pinata from Studio Diy.

5. The prettiest non-alcoholic bramble cocktail.

6. On repeat.

5. I'm in love with these beautiful embossing rolling pins.

6. I've got a blank space crying out for one of these Diy Wall Weavings from The House That Lars Built.

7. And finally, I love everything about this light and relaxing home.

Have a great weekend.

DIY ORIGAMI TRIANGLE BOWLS.

DIY ORIGAMI GEOMETRIC TRIANGLE BOWLS

I absolutely love these geometric paper bowls. I'm always looking for new ways to store my stationery knick-knacks and these origami bowls are the perfect solution. If you've got a couple of minutes to spare and need a little bowl to store your own bits and pieces in this is the project for you.

SUPPLIES: Market Street My Minds Eye Paper Kit, Bone Folder, Glue Stick.

HOW TO MAKE DIY ORIGAMI GEOMETRIC TRIANGLE BOWLS

1. To start you need 3 squares of paper or cardstock, mine measured 5x5 inches. You could use scrapbook paper instead but I found that the cardstock created a sturdier box. It was harder to fold but worth the extra effort.

2. Fold the 1st square in half across the diagonal and crease. Use a bone folder to burnish the folds and make them sharp and crisp. Try to be as precise as possible when making the folds as this will help later on when you put your bowl together.

3. Fold the top corners down to meet the center point. Crease and open back out.

4. Take the bottom corner and fold it up to meet the center.

5. Repeat on the other 2 squares.

6. Tuck each triangle into the other.

7. Fold around and connect the 2 ends together in the same way to make your geometric bowl.

8. Use a little glue or double-sided tape to secure the bottom flaps in place to finish and fill with your goodies.

ADVERTISE HERE (AND 5 FREE AD SPOTS).

ADVERTISE ON GATHERING BEAUTY (AND 5 FREE AD SPOTS)

Hi, just popping in to let you know I've got 5 2 free sidebar ads up for grabs. I've wanted to offer sidebar ads for a while now but it's hard when they don't seem to be as popular as they used to be. I'd love to be able to give back some of the love and support you've shown me and would hate to charge you for an ad spot only to find out it wasn't worth your while. So instead of charging I've decided to give away 5 ad spots as a trial run and a way of saying thank you for all the likes, pins and shares and your continued support of this blog.

ADVERTISE ON GATHERING BEAUTY (AND 5 FREE AD SPOTS)

Each sidebar ad is 300 x 250 and will run in the right sidebar bar under the search bar as shown in the image above. The ads will rotate on each page load for maximum exposure and be included in a post featuring the other sponsors and shared on my social media. If you've got a blog, Etsy shop or small business and think it would be a good fit you can use the code 1STFREEAD at the checkout to get a free 30 day sidebar ad. You can find all the details over here on my advertisement page.

Thanks so much for reading. I can't wait to start sending some love and support your way.

DIY CLIPBOARD FRAME.

DIY CLIPBOARD STYLE FRAME

Remember that gallery art pad I was talking about in this post? Well, I decided to make a really simple clipboard style frame to show off more of the prints.

I love the idea of using a clipboard as a frame because they make it really easy to swap out the artwork or photo whenever you fancy a change. I chose this Lewis Carroll quote and the 'Do more of what makes you happy' quote. I'm really loving these quick diy's lately and I think this could be one of the easiest and quickest yet.

DIY CLIPBOARD STYLE FRAME

Start by laying your print down on your mounting board and cutting it down to size. I left a 1 inch border around my print with 2 inches at the bottom.

DIY CLIPBOARD STYLE FRAME

Glue the board down onto the cardstock or scrapbook paper. I used some more of the Market Street Collection from My Minds Eye.

Trim away the excess paper.

DIY CLIPBOARD STYLE FRAME

To finish attach your print to the mounting board using a couple of binder clips.

DIY CLIPBOARD STYLE FRAME

Hang from the binder clips on a couple of nails or leave standing propped up against the wall or on a picture ledge.
