To be honest, I didn’t think I would get back to looking at old posts, like I said. But, it just goes to show that you can surprise yourself. Because, I did go through some of the DIYs I made months yesterday. And it just gave me a warm fuzzy feeling. This only reinforces that I want to unabashedly re-share ideas from a while back. Even though the writing and the photos and a thousand other details make me cringe. Who knows, maybe one day I’ll look back to this post and wonder what I was thinking. Ha ha!
Another important detail for this post is that I actually have tutorials for the ideas I’m sharing today! So, just click through the underlined portion for the steps. And let me know if you have any questions.
First, I want to talk about these potpourri bags. They were one of my first attempts at making potpourri & I was a bit nervous about the scents blending. But, as it turns out, the ones we chose (mint, orange, cinnamon, cloves & green cardamom) mix really well in different combinations and amounts. And the scent is very strong!
Next, are these paper lanterns that I’ve been making since I was a teenager. They are so easy to make (about 5-10 minutes) and there is so much, one can do with the base design. No wonder, we use them so often.
Last for this month’s look back, are my origami paper stars. I remember what a mess I made of the first one. It took forever to complete. But once I had the technique down, the rest of the stars were a piece of cake. What I enjoyed about these stars, was the different ways in which we used them. Maybe I still have a couple of them left. Must check.
That’s it for now! What craft idea have you been making for aeons. Let us know in the comments below.
