EASTER BUNNY BAG

As we mentioned yesterday, we have a few easter projects for you this week. Today I have put together a template, that you can print and cut out, and fold into a small bag. You can fill it with sweets, homemade chocolate eggs or have your kid fill it with something she can give to friend. 
 
The template is an A4(or make it A3 if you like). When printed, cut along the box and grey lines. Afterwards score the white lines, fold the box and glue/tape together. Punch a hole for a piece of ribbon. The template can be found here: Easter Bunny Box
 
 
 

NOTE SHEET PAPER CRATE

It's always fun to find potential in things you have laying around. I have been storing all our weekly newspapers and advertisements in a fruit crate, but I had grown tired from its look and wanted to give it a makeover. Since I'm very fond of note sheet paper, I decided to cover it with that. I used a simple decoupage technique and just cut pieces of paper and glued them to the crate.
It's an easy project and you can apply this technique to any wood surface and it will look great. Allthough the crate was meant for all the newspapers, I have been storing my alpaca yarn in it. The colors looks so great together :) 
 
Have a great Friday! /Sussi 
 
 

WRAP SOME LOVE

I like giving gifts. It makes me happy to surprise someone with something unexpected. It can sometimes be difficult to choose or come up with a great idea for a gift, but often less is more. You can go out into your garden, collect a few flowers, wrap them in simple brown paper and some gorgeous ribbon, and you have turned your organic homegrown flowers into an expensive looking bouquet...filled with more love and care than any random flower from a store ever will contain. It will never be about the amount of money you spend, but the thought behind and the effort you have put into it. So go out and wrap some love in a simple piece of brown paper, and surprise someone you hold dear.
 
Have a beautiful day! /Annika
 
 

holiday wrapping

Yesterday I was testing some new wrapping material. I used fabrics, paper, wallpaper and yarn. I love testing things like this not really knowing what the result might be. I had chosen a color range though, wanted it to be kind of natural looking with a splash of purple. 
I also made some present tags which I'm going to post tomorrow. I'll include a PDF here so you can print them out. So please come back tomorrow and have a look. Now I'm off to do some Christmas treats. Hope to show you the pictures this weekend. Great Thursday everyone! /Annika
 
 
 
 

little cake mold candles

I love candles and I had been thinking about using these little muffins molds and turning them into candles for a while now. Thought they would be perfect to use on Christmas Eve for the table decoration. 
 
This is quite an easy project. You use tea candles, take out the candle wick and place the wax in the mold.
Place it in the oven and heat at 150 °C for ca. 10 min. You might want to place it on an oven tray. When the wax has melted you take it out of the oven, put back the wick and wait for it to cool down.

The molds I used were rather small, but it'll work in any size mold. Just adjust the amount of wax you use by cutting extra pieces and place it in the mold. Happy project!  /Annika

 

winter white window

This Tuesdays theme for Fabriken was Christmas window. During the summer we use these double-doors that faces the terrace, but when it´s cold and winter like this we keep it closed and I turn it into a cozy relaxing space. The light is great out here and we get the late sun during the afternoon.
The stars hanging from the three is made from glue. I use a glue-gun to draw out the stars on a non-stick surface and when they have dried I use a simple sewing thread to hang them from the three.
I had a really hard time keeping our dog out of the pictures today. He loves to be in the middle of everything and is all about the attention.Or maybe he just wanted to be on camera :-) Happy Tuesday! /Sussi
 
 
 

note sheet flowers

Last project in the note sheet series is a gift box and a couple of paper flowers. These little paper flowers can be used when gift-wrapping or you might want to add a string and hang them in a tree or window. You'll find the instructions and template for the gift box and flower in this printable PDF.
 
Have a wonderful snowy Monday! /Annika
 
 
 

paper cones & pinecones

The second project in the note sheet series is actually two projects. One is a paper cone that you can use when giving away home baked treats or just want to have pretty packaging laying around.
The other project is a couple of Christmas ornaments shaped like pinecones, which is perfect for hanging in a tree or to decorate on a table. The instructions can be found in this printable PDF.
These little projects are also our Sunday contribution to Fabriken.
Ha en trevlig första advent! /Annika

This post is the first in a series I'll be posting during the next couple of days about using note sheet paper for decorating and paper craft ideas.
In this project I will make a couple of little note sheet candles. You can find the directions to the project in this printable PDF.
Happy Friday Project! /Annika
