This video tutorial shows you how to use those belts in your donate pile to make customizable cuff bracelets.  The idea came to me when my husband gave me the belt that with a pair of shorts.  He was going to get rid of it, but passed it my way in and challenged me to repurpose it.  It is a perfect frugal handmade gift for all occasions.  I have already made and gifted several of these.

Video Tutorial Astr oBrights Paper Rosette Magnetic Locker Mirror With Spiral Rose Template at savedbylovecreations.com

Neon, back to school craft, with free printable template using AstroBrights warm color pack and a $1 mirror... are you interested? This bold paper comes in 23 vibrant colors that fit right in with the recent neon craze. It definitely grabs the eye, and is fantastic for crafts, brochures, invites... anything that you want to make stand out.

With all the neon jewelry hitting the fasion scene, i had a hard time choosing between a back to school project and a neon paper bead project i have in mind. I went with the back to school craft, but keep your eyes peeled for a bracelet from AstroBright paper beads in the near future. I chose 3 colors to create a fun paper rosette magnetic mirror that will go right on my niece's locker (that is if I don't accidentally forget to give it to her, leaving it on my refrigerator). Watch the video to see how to create your own.

DIY Olympic T-Shirts With Tulip Fabric Markers & Paint

Make your own Olympic T-Shirt with Tulip fabric markers/paint and contact paper stencils at savedbylovecreations.comWe are super into the track and field Olympic events.  Last weekend was the women's Marathon, and I was glued to the T.V.  My husband's favorite Olympic event is the men's marathon.  His favorite runner, Ryan Hall.  The race takes place in just a few days, and I wanted to make us T-shirts to show our support for the amazing U.S. athletes.  These were simple to make, and I love the outcome I got from layering Tulip soft fabric paint in a neutral shade over Tulip neon fabric markers in various hues.

You will see in the video, I used my Cricut to cut out stencils from adhesive vinyl contact paper (which you can get at the dollar store for a buck).  I colored with bright Tulip fabric markers, then did an overlay with Tulip soft fabric paint, letting the bright layer show through in some areas.  The effect turned out pretty cool.  Check out the quick video to see the process.

Make your own Olympic T-Shirt with Tulip fabric markers/paint and contact paper stencils at savedbylovecreations.com *** If you don't have a cricut or other die cut, you can print off your design and cut out the letters to create a stencil from paper or card stock.  Then use stencil adhesive or masking tape to make the stencil stay in place on the shirt.

Debi’s Design Diary; Great Video Tutorial Channel

Debi's Design

Did I get you attention with the gorgeous woman?  It wasn't a ploy.  This article is all about her.  I recently took the leap and began doing video tutorials.  In finding my way around the process of shooting, and editing (which I am still very much doing), I asked for help.  That is how I met Debi, of Debi's Design Diary.  She piped right in to give me some great tips, but what really got my attention was actually watching her videos.  If you can make me laugh and teach me to make something really cool while you are doing it, you have won my heart.  This woman is not only super crazy talented at design, but she is freaking hilarious (and down right adorable, as you can see).  Don't even get me started on the puppy.   I am so excited to share this gem with you!

Debi's Design Diary

It was hard to decide which video to feature.  All of them make me want to get busy creating. I picked this one because I have a hideous love seat in need of a revamp.  You will have to go to Debi's YouTube Channel for more.  If you are like me, this will be one of your favorite channels.  Debi's blog is here, and her FB page here.

Video Tutorial: Make Cut Wine Bottle Vases

Cut wine bottles and make adorable Vases/jars/candle holders.  Video DIY at savedbylovereations.com

Need a beautiful, quick gift that is free to make?  This recycled wine bottle craft is just the thing.  It is super fun, you will see in the video.  It only takes a few supplies and a minute to make.  Stick a paper rose in there (see this paper rose tutorial) and you have a lovely centerpiece or house warming gift.  I was completely intimidated by this project.  I can't believe how easy it is.  Gather up some empty wine bottles and lets go!

PLEASE be careful and wear goggles and gloves.  This project is very easy, but involves fire and glass.  The edges after cutting were dull enough that my fingers were fine after running them along the rim, but I did decide to sand with 120 grit sand paper before giving as gifts.

To make the flowers, watch this video I showed you in my lighted flower strings post.  Instead of the EK tools carnation punch, you will use the Ek tools  doily petal punch.  The rest of the flower process is the same.  Then just pick up a lighted LED branch and put your flowers on there but sticking the light through the hole in the center of the flower.

Video Tutorial: Button Bracelet

Make an #upcycle button bracelet with @savedbyloves #jewelryI was looking at my piles and piles of buttons, when it hit me that I have a serious problem.  I don't want to end up on an episode of Hoarders.  Not a goal of mine.  That is when I decided to use some of them up by creating this easy, 5  minute bracelet.  I even shot a little video.  All you will need for this project is some buttons, a bracelet blank (I got mine at Hobby Lobby on clearance for $1.47) and some E6000 or other strong glue.

Paper Flower Light Strings

I found this great EK Tools 3D flower paper punch at Michael's and just had to feed my paper flower addiction.  The punch is super easy and fun to use.  You will see in the video tutorial below, straight out of the package, you will be making gorgeous flowers.  This is a great alternative to investing in a die cut machine, if you just want to get a taste.

All you need is the punch, a bamboo skewer, scrapbook paper 12x12 sheets and glue. When you are finished with the flowers, you can use them several different ways.  I dipped my flowers in Outdoor Mod Podge, then used an LED battery operated string of lights to make flower string lights.  The Mod Podge step is not necessary unless you need them sealed.  My next plan is to use coordinating papers and make a bouquet.

What do you do with your paper flowers?
