The Best of Crafttuts+
It’s all about New Year makeovers on Crafttuts+ this week! Hopefully you’re feeling inspired and revved up after reading Kitiya Palaskas‘ clever tips on how to give your crafty business a boost and new lease of life. So why not put some of that creative energy into a brand new notebook, with a very special cover? Felt book covers are a great way to turn ordinary inexpensive notebooks into something lovely – and they all make lovely personalised gifts, too.
If you’re looking for an easy, low cost and effective way to add some art to your walls try making your own woven paper artwork. This tutorial shows you the technique, and the variations and possibilities are endless using different coloured paper and patterns.
I live in an apartment with all white walls and quite a minimal style, but there’s one thing that I’m stuck with and can’t afford to change – the ugly aging beige intercom handset. I’ve given a lot of thought to how I can hide or disguise it, to no avail. So I came up with a solution: instead of trying to hide it, I decided to create this neon wrapped wire speech bubble to place right next to it. Now the handset doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb anymore, it’s become part of a fun art piece.
