Mixed Media Fabric Cuff Bracelet

Hello friends! Today I am here with a super easy and fun tutorial! Its a fun fabric cuff that you can put together in less than fifteen minutes! So easy and super cute in no time at all! Let's get started!

Here's what you'll need:
Empty Tape Roll
Hot Glue

So I have been a bit of a hoarder and have been saving these empty duct tape rolls AND my hand painted fabric for forever! Well I decided it was time to put them to good use!

 Start but cutting a strip of your fabric about an inch to an inch and a half wide

 Grab your tape roll and start on the inside with a bit of hot glue

Start wrapping the cuff, only gluing every other strip on the inside of the cuff

 Grab some ribbon and glue around the cuff, leaving a bit of a tail, tie in a knot, adding a dot of glue to the center of knot so it stays together. Trim and fray check your ribbon.

 Add your pendant with some glue and you are done! Super simple!
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial, its a great way to wear your art and add some fun to any outfit! What are some ways you enjoy wearing your art? The possibilities are endless! Questions? Comments? Feel free to Comment below! Happy Crafting!!!

Mixed Media Bow Garland

 Hello Fiends! Well if you know me at all you know I collect paper like its going out of style, especially random painted papers! So I decided to raid my stash and make a cute bow garland to brighten up my craft space!

 I grabbed some random papers and used my Silhouette to cut out the bows. Don't have a die cutting machine? No worries, I will link to an awesome printable template at the end of this post!

 I just used some glue dots and put together all my bows, I then decided to add a pop of neon with some of my grandmothers handwriting papers that I just simply copied onto scrapbook paper!

 I have a specific "glue gun tray" that I used to keep from destroying my desk! I simply just added a dot of hot glue to the center back of the bows, keeping the spacing somewhat in mind.

 I added some hot pink distress ink to the edges of the bows to give them a little pop of color and then it was time to hang it up on my dresser! I just used some glue dots to keep everything in place!

Super cute, easy and fun! Here is a bow template that you can print at use at home! Here and here is the link to the cut files I used as well! I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial, happy crafting friends!

File Folder Stencils!

Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready to start the week with a little tutorial! I learned how to make file folder stencils in a class I took from Tangie Baxter and well I am hooked! So I thought I would share a quick little tutorial on how to easily make them yourself!

I simply drew out some simple shapes and then cut them out with scissors and a razor blade! Thats all there is to it! Here is a close up of the stencils being used!

Well friends that's all there is to it! I actually laminated mine and then re cut them so that they last longer! Imagine all the fun designs you can come up with! Well friends I will talk to you soon, happy Monday!
