Paper Crafts

27 Jul

I like these handmade envelopes from Habit of ArtShe made them to fit note cards she made, but I could see them being used for photo CD’s too.Over at Dig It Prop they have a paper crafted alphabet.  It is in a downloadable zip file.  This looks like a lot of fun, but this is also from a person that taught 200 children  how to fold an origami paper boat, so what I see as fun others may think of as crazy.

Here is an other idea from Dig It Prop for a nativity scene.

Tea Towels

26 Jul

I went looking for new tea towels the other day and came away disappointed.  I found one I really liked but couldn’t merit the $40 price tag.  I think I found the solution at Flamingo Toes! For me the teacups work, but you could use anything. There are no turned edges so that makes the applique easy, just a little free motion sewing. (which I love to do) Check out the other sewing ideas for the kitchen at Flamingo Toes.
