Update: New Posting Schedule!

Hello, my pretty little readers!

School just started this week, which means I am newly swamped with work.

I’ve decided to cut down on posts per week – instead of 2, I will only do 1. I will also posting on Fridays now, since I only have one class in the morning that day.

I’ve been absent the last week or so preparing for school but I will resume posting this Friday with a follow-up to 10 Things to Look For on Your Next Trip to Goodwill!

See you Friday!


Update: Postage Stamp Gift Tags!

Hello, my pretty little readers!

Yesterday I posted a list of 12 easy postage stamp projects. Be sure to check it out if you haven’t already, there are some wonderful ideas there.

Today I decided to make my own version of #12 on the list, the gift tags from Pillar Box Blue. I sort of did my own thing, but I loved how they turned out! What a great way to “dress up” some plain, store-bought tags:

These are so quick and easy to make, and you could use so many different embellishments. I just used washi tape, but if I had some coordinating stickers and things, I probably would have used those too!

I’m especially fond of the Batman tag, and I have specific plans for that one. 🙂 I do wish I had switched the two strips of washi tape, but it still looks nice.

For the sweet corn tag, I opted for a smaller tag because the stamp itself was a lot smaller, and the rectangle tag would have been too big. If you can’t tell, the stamp has some red on it, which is why I went with the red polka-dot washi tape.

Hopefully this further inspires you to try out some stamp projects for yourself!

Connect and share on social media if you enjoyed. See you on Monday!


Update: How to Make a Birthday Card in 5 Easy Steps

Hello, my pretty little readers!

I was a little ambitious with the post I had planned for yesterday, and it still isn’t done yet.

(Note: The ambitious post in question is 10 Things to Look For on Your Next Trip to Goodwill. It’s a great read if you’re into upcycling!) 

However, I don’t want to make you wait until Monday for another post, so here’s an update to my last post. In it, I showed you how to make a birthday card in only 5 steps. I made all of the balloons gold for that card, which made it hard to tell them apart.

Here is the same card, but using different colors for the balloons instead! Otherwise, I followed the same steps as I did in the last post.

The Original Card:

Updated Card:

I think it looks much better with several colors. I like the way I arranged the balloons a bit more, too. Thanks, trial and error!

What do you think?

If you missed it, check out the original post (linked above). As always, connect and share on social media!

Stay tuned for a new post on Monday, which will talk about the reasons for upcycling!
