I Could {Sooo} Make That!


BFF Clay Keychain Tutorial

Posted on May 28, 2014 at 12:00 AM Comments comments (0)

My sister needed a gift for her BFF and claims she doesn't have a crafty bone in her body, so she asked me to help her with an idea and assistance in creating it.  I thought this keychain would be a unique idea that she'd be sure to not already have.  It was inexpensive and personalized.

I've been seeing these types of keychains online between $15.-$30. and that's just on Etsy! I don't even want to look at the prices for retail.  So I decided to make my own. 

DIY Monogram Belt Cuff

Posted on May 13, 2014 at 5:00 PM Comments comments (0)

I purchased the letter charm from a Party City in my local town for about $2.50, but I did search for these on Party City's website and was unsuccessful (although that may be just the website and is still sold in your local Party City, but if you are unsuccessful, the same style is also available here for full alphabet, for around $16.00 or you can get just the single letters for $ .64.  Below is an example of each letter.

By the way, ALL of these belts were purchased at a thrift store for under $2. bucks a piece!

Update:  I had to include this amazing web find!  On The Proper Pinwheel, they featured a chromatic typewriter, a conceptual art piece that punches color into the paper instead of letters.  I fell in love an had to feature it. Check it out.
