Free Download: Printer-Friendly Weekly Planner - 2018

A couple of years ago, when I first started blogging, I released a free weekly planner sheet that was meant to be printer friendly and minimalist, since the ones I found on Pinterest and looked cute were all with colored text or boxes. This new freebie is an update to the previous one, in my opinion, I'm biased since I made it but, I think it has a better-looking design and a handy to-do section at the bottom. Same as the first one this is meant to be ink saving for your printer and I also made an A5 version, so you can also save on paper.

DIY Recycled Christmas Photo Display

Have you put up your holiday decorations yet? This recycled photo/card display is a great option if you are still looking for ideas. It will likely cost you no money if you already have tape and spray paint at home. You can make it as big as you want depending on the size of your cardboard or even with other shapes, perhaps a square for Christmas card display?

The video below was created in collaboration with two other crafters from YouTube, they also made a recycled DIY that you can watch here.

Materials: Cardboard, X-Acto, painters tape, silver spray paint, satin ribbon, white glue, mini wooden clothespins.

  1. Start by drawing a triangle with 27 x 46 cm. Once you have the first one, draw other two triangles inside with 2 cm apart. Repeat the process again, you’ll need two pieces of each size, one for the front and other for the back. 
  2. Use an X-Acto knife to cut them out. 
  3. Cover the entire thing with tape and make sure to cut little snippets at the edges to make it fold nicely. 
  4. To give it color, I spray painted the cardboard with silver paint. 
  5. Once it is dry, plan where you want the ribbon pieces to go, and how many strands you’ll need, then mark the place where each piece lays and glue them. 
  6. Let it dry for a bit and cut the excess ribbon. 
  7. Next, add wood glue to the entire surface and glue the other piece on top. Place heavy books on top and let it dry. 
  8. Attach the photos with mini wooden clothespins.

Free Printable Typography Christmas Wrapping Paper

Hi everyone, I've made several types of printables here on the blog, including Christmas Tags and a cute Printable Santa to hang on the tree, but somehow I haven't made a wrapping paper yet, even though I love wrapping presents. That's why I decided to create this one, filled with fun phrases, and motivating quotes to make sure that sneaky hands don't touch the presents until the 25th.

The files are available in A4 and A3 so you can choose the size that fits your printer.
To make it big enough to wrap my gifts I trim the excess paper from the sides and just tape 2 or 3 sheets of paper together from the inside, so the tape doesn't show.

DIY Recycled Wine Cork Geometric Earrings

Upcycling wise, wine corks are one of the easiest materials to work with, they are easy to cut, lightweight and work great as jewelry pieces. I particularly like using them to make earrings, since corks are so light, the earrings made from it are super comfortable to wear all day round.

So here's how I made this recycled pair of jewelry:
