white and colored cardstock (for the card) – colored paper (for the bouquet) – glue – scissors

Start by creating your card folding an A4 white cardstock (160 g) in half. Decorate it as you like.

Now let’s start with the internal pop-up, by creating the flower structure.

YOU NEED TO CREATE 7 FLOWERS, by following the instructions below. I suggest to follow also the video tutorial to make assembing easier.

Cut 7 squares (mine are 9 cm x 9 cm. Fold as shown below:

Once you have folded you square (3 times), cut the shape of the petals.

Cut out one petal and join together overlapping where there is an opening.

Place the bi-adhesive tape on the petals. Assemble the flower.

Stick the flower on one side of the card and close.

DIY (189) – Lampshade

Hi everyone!!!

Today we will go for a project which might seem difficult, but in reality you just have to be careful with the measures and in assembling: a lampshade.

The nice thing about making your own lampshade is that you can decide if to use paper, fabric or other material and how to decorate it.

This lampshade has a diameter of 12 cm.

Let’s start!!!

DIY N. 189

LAMPSHADE

material:

light cardstock or fabric – aluminum wire – hot glue – scissors – lace – other decrations (I used some beads)

Cut a rectangle 38 cm long (in reality the lampshade has a circumference of 37 cm, but you have to count 1 extra cm so to close it with glue.

Fold on the dotted lines. Insert the aluminum wires (2 x 37 cm long).

Cut two other pieces 26 cm long (this will be the lamp holder). You need to create a structure like the one below: count 6 cm and then fold to create a ring (about 7 cm High). Leave another 6 cm of wire.

Repeat and then join them together using a nut or with a ring made with aluminum wire.

Stick the structure on top of the lampshade with the two rings facing downwards (this is where you will insert your light bulb).

Now apply the decorations like the lace and pearls (or other material),

Your lampshade is ready!

DIY (189) – Paralume

Buongiorno a tutti!!

Oggi andremo per un progetto che potrebbe sembrare difficile, ma in realtà bisogna solo stare attenti con le misure e nel montaggio: un paralume.

La cosa bella di fare il proprio paralume è che si può decidere se utilizzare carta, tessuto o altro materiale e come decorarlo.

Questo paralume ha un diametro di 12 cm.

Cominciamo!!!

DIY N. 189

PARALUME

materiali:

cartoncino leggero o tessuto – filo di alluminio – colla a caldo – forbici – pizzo – altre decrazioni (ho usato alcune perline)

Tagliare un rettangolo lungo 38 cm (in realtà il paralume ha una circonferenza di 37 cm, ma bisogna contare 1 cm in più per chiuderlo con la colla.

Piegare sulle linee tratteggiate. Inserire i fili di alluminio (2 x 37 cm di lunghezza).

Tagliare altri due pezzi di 26 cm di lunghezza (questo sarà il porta lampada). È necessario creare una struttura come quella qui sotto: contare 6 cm e poi piegare per creare un anello (circa 7 cm di altezza). Lasciare un altro 6 cm di filo.

Ripetere e poi unirli insieme utilizzando un dado o con un anello realizzato con filo di alluminio.
Incollate la struttura sopra il paralume con i due anelli rivolti verso il basso (qui inserirete la vostra lampadina).

Ora applicare le decorazioni come il pizzo e perle (o altro materiale),

Il vostro paralume è pronto!

Spero ti sia piaciuta anche l’idea creativa di oggi!

DIY (188) – Homemade citronella candles

Hi everyone!!!

Finally summer is here and we can sit outside!

How about a nice dinner on the terrace? Unfortunately it is also the time for insects and mosquitos.

I have so many cute little vases at home and I thought it would be a good idea to use them for making citronnella candles. If you don’t have little pots like the one in the picture, you can also go for tins or glass jars.

Let’s start!!!

DIY N. 188

HOMEMADE CITRONELLA CANDLES

material:

Container (a little pot or in alternative tins or glass jars) – A double boiler – Wax (soy waxparaffin wax, old candles) – Pre-waxed wicks with tabs a bit longer than the height of your container – citronella oil (a few drops for each candle) – hot glue gun

Place the wicks to the center of your can or container. The best way I have found to use this is with a hot glue gun. Make sure to press the wick down firmly (and carefully as the hot glue can burn).

If you are using a larger container, you can add two or three wicks spaced apart around the center.

Assemble your double boiler and add wax or old candles in small pieces. Don’t worry so much about bits of wick or other specks in the wax as you won’t see them in the candles when they are done.

Heat the wax over medium heat until it is completely melted. This won’t take too long. Stir every once in a while to help it melt evenly.

When the wax is melted, it’s time to add the fragrance (calculate about 28 g for 450 g of wax).

Let the wax cool slightly and carefully pour into containers. I can usually gently maneuver my wicks to stay in the center as the wax cools, but if you are having trouble, secure the wicks with a chopstick or clothespin to keep them in line.

Allow your candle to rest for 48 hours before burning. Trim the wick to about 1 cm before you light it. Then, once it’s lit, let the candle burn so that there is a full, wide pool of wax before you blow it out. This is how you get an even burn for the life of the candle.

Now you can leave your pots as they are or decorate them with twine and other materials.

Your homemade citronella candle is ready!
