β˜€οΈ Snazzy Sunday β˜€οΈ

hiya! It’s my favourite time of the week because I love making Snazzy Sunday!! Today I’m going to be showing you guys all the arty stuff I’ve been doing the last couple of days. But before all that voting for my competition entry at http://www.littlemoondragon.blogspot.com is now open. So go and check it out. I would be very grateful if u liked my entry enough to vote for me. The other entries are fab too. !! 

So now to my crafts. I have decided to ask you all to vote for your favourite one! So once you’ve finished reading this and have decided what one you will choose go over to the comments and put ” I vote for 1,2,3 or 4 … All of the things will be numbered, I can’t wait to see what you think of these things!  So without further ado here you go! 

Number 1

  

You need a notepad (a small one will do), stickers, embellishments ( I used buttons and wee gems), glue 

To get this awesome effect you basically overlap the stickers filling the spaces on the front cover. Once the page was full, I then added the embellishments. 

Its was so easy !! 

Number 2 

  

We have these really cool milk bottles at home that I decided to decorate with Washi tape. I love drinking my milk and eating a cookie with this !! 

Number 3 

  

Using Washi tape again, I made this cool bracelet. 

I used a strip of paper and wound strips of different Washi tape around it. I then used a hole punch to punch a hole at each end and then put a piece of wool through the holes so I can tie it round my wrist.

Number 4

  

This is the first thing I have ever sewn properly on my own so I am so proud of myself. I have called her Rosemary the cat. 🐱🐱🐱

You need felt, a marker to draw the shape u want, scissors, need to be quite sharp, thread, buttons for eyes, ribbon for collar and stuffing to fill her. U could make  her any colour you want, any design really. It would also look cool if u make mini animals and then you can have ur very own family! 

These are just some of the arty things I’ve made. I hope you ❀️ this post, I’ve had so much fun making all of these awesome things and I hope that if ur looking for an art project to do that I have given u some inspiration! Have an awesome rest of ur day πŸ‘πŸ˜‹ BYE

Washi Tape!!

hi guys! I’m writing this post at my bbf’s ( best blogger friend ) house. And today I’m going to do a post on WASHI TAPE! If you don’t already know,  washi tape is like masking tape but its pattered and coloured and you can write on it, tear it easily, and it is very cheap and easy to use. 

Washi means Japanese paper and has been used in Japan for over 1,000 years and is made from Japanese shrubs  unlike western paper which is made from tree pulp.  Washi tape was created in 2006 by a masking tape company in Japan.  It is known here for the beautiful designs that are printed or painted on it.  Westerners only call it washi tape, In Japan its just known as masking tape. 

If you are interested in reading more about how its made, pop over to http://www.tofugu.com (since when has masking tape been this fun? Since Washi tape !  So cool !!  ) 

So I’m going to show you all the washi tape and ducktape I have and then show you what I’ve done with, where you can get it, how much it is and other stuff like that. Just remember that I live in the UK so won’t be the same as USA or other countries. So Let’s get Started!   

 

  

So that’s all my ducktape and washi tape I πŸ’•β€οΈ it!!! The wee rolls in the middle I got in a pack of 3 and there were 75p each ( UK money ), super cheap as they were on sale.  Woo hoo. The duck tape was Β£1.50 each from Hobbycraft.                   

Duck tape and Washi Tape are very different.  As I said above you can write and draw on the Washi tape whereas you cant on the Duck tape. I have tried and it smudges. But I think  the duck tape  is more waterproof and durable and there was definetly  more designs available (in our shop anyway). You can also get it in thicker rolls so you can make bigger items like purses etc. Washi tape would def be too flimsy for that.  I love that we have the two options to choose from.  I used a mixture of the both in the things I made below.

These are the things I’ve made with Washi Tape

  

I am so excited about this!! My new light switch for my bedroom. Was soooooo easy to do. 

Because the tape is sticky but also repositionable, you can lift straight back off if it was squinty.  I then used a craft knife to trim the edges. To finish off I used my favourite glittery nail polish on the actual switch.   

I also decorated my favourite nail polish bottles from Justice. I think they look so snazzy !  

 

I am going to have to stop myself from Washi taping everything in sight !  πŸ˜œ

   

I made the moustache bookmark above and also did a wee heart picture too.

πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œWashi wish list. I need/I want πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

 

Paperchase has some totally cute tape, this one above is currently on sale Β£2.25. Steal !!  The one below is from Hobbycraft and is Β£3.50 but they have 3 for 2 sale at the moment 

  

There is loads of video tutorials on you tube on how to make all sorts of things. U can even do your nails with them. Would have to be careful with the craft knife though 😁. Pinterest, other blogs have sooooo many cool ideas   I cant wait to try them all !! 

So I’m off to bed now to dream of Washi with my newly covered Blog ideas book beside me. 

 

Hope u enjoyed this post and I have inspired you to join the rest of the world who has gone Washi crazy 😜😜
