Buttons Galore & More: DIY your Wedding Decor with a Diamond Ring Frame

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing my latest DIY project that I created for the  Buttons Galore & More Design Team

Before I talk about my project, I wanted to briefly say that as a member of the design team I do get free products to create awesome DIY projects. More specifically, Buttons Galore & More is sponsoring this post. With that being said, as a member of their design team, my projects will appear on the Buttons Galore & More blog instead of mine own. However, I will write these types of posts to keep you guys up-to-date about what is going on!

Now that we have all of that out of the way, let's get back to the project!

The project that I made for Buttons Galore & More is a Diamond Ring Frame! This diamond ring frame is a super fun project to make because the frame can be customized to fit your wedding decor, it services a purpose, and can be saved by the bride. In addition, this project is super inexpensive to make because it’s made from a wooden plaque, an embroidery hoop, and a piece of foam board! Finally, even though this project is labeled has wedding decor, it can also be used as a decoration for a bridal shower or bachelorette party.

DIY: How To Make Your Own Handmade Labels & Label Storage Box

Hello Everyone!

If you are someone who likes having labels on their handmade projects either when you are selling them or giving them away, then you will love today’s DIY! This is because I will be showing you how to make your own handmade labels and a storage box for the labels, in only 4 steps.

Today's project is part of my collaboration with Xyron since I'm a member of their design team! This means you will be seeing some Xyron products in action! For this particular project, I will be showcasing the Xyron® 1.5″ Sticker Maker and the Xyron® Tape Runner. I've talked about the Xyron® 1.5'' Sticker Maker and Xyron Tape Runner before, so if you want to learn more about them, then click here (for the Xyron 1.5’’ Sticker Maker) and click here (for the Xyron Tape Runner).

Also, in this project, I will be using items from Pink and Main! Now if you have never heard of Pink and Main, they are a company which creates adorable stamps, dies, and papers. Their stamps (in particular) are very detailed, fairly inexpensive, and come in a wide variety of choices. In today’s project, I will be using their Clear Photo-polymer Handmade Stamp Set and their Shades of Spring 6x6 Paper Pad!

As I mentioned before, I will be showing you to make your own handmade labels and a storage box for your labels. My goal when creating this project was to show you how easy it was to create your own customized labels with only a few supplies. Honestly, if you took out step 4 (which is the storage box) you could literally make your own handmade labels in only 3 steps!

Finally, keeping reading this post to the very bottom to find out about two giveaways!!

Ok, let’s get crafting!

Pink and Main:  Shades of Spring 6x6 Paper Pad 
White Paper and Kraft Paper
Acrylic Block
Black Ink
Small Clear Box
Colored Pencils / Markers (optional / not pictured)
Scissors (not pictured)

Step 1: Grab one of the stamps from Pink and Main’s Handmade Stamp Step and adhere it to your acrylic block. Then dip your stamp in black ink and begin stamping your image on your white or kraft paper.

Keep repeating this step until you have as many labels as you like.

Step 2: Cut out your labels in whatever shape you like and then, using your colored pencils or markers, color your labels.

Step 3: Grab all of your labels and begin sliding them through your Xyron 1.5’’ Inch Sticker Maker.

Keep repeating this process until you have run each label through your Xyron 1.5’’ Sticker Maker.

Step 4:  To create a storage box for your labels, simply cut some patterned pieces of paper (from Pink and Main’s Shades of Spring 6x6 Paper Pad) that will fit on top of your box. Then adhere those pieces of patterned paper to your box by using your Xyron Tape Runner. Finally, add the label that says ''From the Studio Of'' on the top of the box.

Once your storage box has been completely decorated, you are ready to store your labels and begin using them on your projects!

I love how easy it was to make these handmade labels and how you could make a ton in such a short amount of time!

In the Pink and Main Handmade Stamp Set, you got a variety of stamps which could be used for different products or gifts. Above, I tried to give you some examples of how you could use these handmade labels whether you were selling a product at a craft fair or simply giving something away as a gift. Out of all these ideas, my favorite one would definitely be the jewelry bag.

So, I bet you are now wondering about that giveaway (lol)!

Pop of Color Triangle Shadow Box on HomeDIT

Hello Everyone!

Today I wanted to tell you guys that I have new a project up on HomeDIT! The project that is up on their site is my Pop of Color Triangle Shadow Box.

Now you may be asking, what is a pop of color triangle shadow box? Well, a pop of color triangle shadow box is basically what it sounds like. It is a triangle shadow box that is painted three colors on the inside, so you can rotate it to get a ''new color'' to set your knickknacks on. For example, the triangle shadow box that I created, has an orange side, blue side, and green side. In the above photo, you will see that my squirrel knickknacks are on the green side.

To learn more about this project and to see more photos of each colored side, click here!
