Zipper Flower Headband

Hello!  A couple of weeks ago, as we were surfing the web, we found an awesome tutorial for a cute headband.. made from a zipper!  It came from one of our favorite blogs, Craftaholics Anonymous.
We loved it so much, we decided to make our own.
If you want to make your own, click here for the tutorial.

Here's Linda's:

And here's ours: We liked them so much, we made 2!

See ya!


Valentine's Day!

Hey guys! Happy early Valentine's Day! This year we got a little bit of a late start on the crafts, but have 2 mini tutorials to make it up to you! First, a cute softie - a heart with wings.

To make this softie, just cut out 2 heart shapes from pink felt,

Sew them together, leaving 2 one inch spaces on the sides,

Then turn it right side out and stuff! For the wings, cut 2 wing shapes from white felt, and hot glue them into the heart.

And that's it!
For our second tutorial, we have these super cute paint chip earrings!

First, you need a pink/red paint chip, either 3 different colors or the kind that already has 3 on them.

Cut them into strips by color and overlap them like in the picture.

Glue them together with a glue stick, then cut out 2 heart shapes.  Coat them with Mod Podge Dimensional Magic, let dry for 24 hours (or be impaitent and blow a fan on them for 1 hour :))
When they're dry, hot glue earring backs to the back! Tadaaaa!!

Enjoy your Valentine's Day!

Rainbow Notebook Tutorial

Everyone has boring old black and white marble composition books, right?  You can use them for school, work, or even crafting! :) Well, today we'll show you how to turn those boring notebooks into this super awesome rainbow notebook!
It's got spunk, it's got personality, it's got style!  And you can make it!

All you need is a black and white marble composition notebook (they sell them really cheap at the dollar store) and Sharpies in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.

Let's get started!
First you want to divide your notebook into even sections to color.  Use the picture below and mark the lines on your notebook with a pen or pencil.

Now, just color in between the lines starting with red at the top then following the rainbow all the way down the composition notebook.

That's it! You can also do the back, but we chose just to do the front.  It would also look cool if the colors were in reverse order, or maybe the stripes were smaller.
If you try it, make sure to send us a picture at thosecraftychicks(at)yahoo(dot)com!

Oh, and one last thing.  Doesn't the notebook look cool in the Neon effect from Picnik?
