DIY: Wine Cork Stamps
Glue the craft foam shape onto the wine cork.
Get creative, make more stamps & start printing! I started playing around with carving the stamp out of the actual wine cork and preferred it over using the foam - the prints turned out better and the stamps were much easier to clean! Try out both methods and decide what you like best!
DIY: EASY Iris Folding
Cut a piece of cardstock in half . Using one of the pieces, fold the paper in half to make a card. Then, draw a shape of your choice on the front. Next, cut out the shape using your X-Acto knife.
Page through your old magazines and find pages with colors that you like. When you've made your selection, cut out 1-inch strips of magazine paper. This is where your paper cutter will come in handy! Once you've cut your strips, fold them in half "hot dog style", aka the long way.
Cut your folded magazine pieces into 2-4 inch pieces (depending on the size of the shape you cut out). You are going to tape these folded pieces onto the back of your cut out shape with the folded side facing toward the center. Start with one color and tape 3 to 4 pieces around the outside of the shape. Next, change to a new color scheme and rotate the pieces slightly, so that you are covering more and more of the shape, slowly working your way toward the center. Continue this process until you have covered all of the open space. See below:
When you have covered all of the open space with strips of magazine, cover the taped area by gluing a piece of cardstock onto the inside cover.
DIY: Magazine Envelopes
Unfold an envelope and trace the outline onto a magazine page of your choice.
Cut out the magazine along the outline and glue it onto the outside of the envelope. Fold, glue and all done!
