Craft Projects, continued....

During the last few weeks, I have run across some really cute DIY projects, I started on a burlap wreath I posted a while back....These are the other projects I saw that I wanted to try....

The first project was a cork board. This was a super easy project. I saw it over at "Peppermint and Plum".  All you do is tape your cork board up, paint white stripes on it, and then remove the tape.....Super easy, and it ended up really great....


For this cupcake project, all you need is a cheap frame, (I got mine at Target) a Martha Stewart cupcake punch, some 3D Sticky dots, and then some scrap booking paper that catches your eye.....I also had some rub on words, so I added the word "enjoy" on the bottom right corner for a cute final touch! :) I saw many different ways that people had used the Martha Stewart Cupcake punch, I put my own twist on it, and came up with this cute piece of art! :)
Last but not least I wanted to replicate something I saw over at "A Thoughtful Place" .She did this project and it was such a great organization idea. I have started using it already, and it works great! :) Gives me so much more space. Again all I needed was an organization display (also got this from Target too!) some cute scrap booking paper, clothespins, mod podge, and a cute punch to punch out some card-stock. You will use the card-stock to write on. I used the modge podge to glue/seal the scrapbooking paper to the clothespins.....I used it like glue, and set the scrapbook paper on top of it, and them I coated it with modge podge again over top as sort of a seal. The final touch of the decorated clothespins was inspired by a post on  "The Girl Creative's" Blog.

P.S. Also, notice the cute little fabric flower on the top right corner of the organizer, isn't it cute, it looks  good there, I thought! I won this over at A Glimpse Inside. It was from a etsy shop called Just for Love! :)
