Free Printable Christmas Gift Tags

One of the things I like about Christmas is gifting, I love to pick out or make special things to offer to my friends and family, and wrapping it in the best way possible.

I have this dark green recycled paper that is one of my favorites at the moment, and wanted the tags to stand out against the color, so I went with this light greyish color, complementing with a red satin ribbon.

The files are in jpg, png and pdf and as usual, to download you just have to click on the button at the bottom of the page and it will open a google drive folder with all the files.


Have you done much Christmas shopping yet?

How to add social media icons to your blog // Blog Restyle

Hi everyone, a reader asked me for tips to personalize a blog, one of them is the social media icons. Most of  the icons and links you see on the web are not that hard to install as it seems, so here is how you can add your own icons on the blogger side bar.

1. First step is to personalize your icons, decide what size you want the icons to be, and what colors are best fitted for your blog. When you're done, save the images separately in your computer.

2.Upload your images to a photo hosting site like photobucket, flickr or tinypic.

3. Go to your blogger site and open the layout section, select add a widget, and choose HTML/JavaScript. 

4. Copy this code: <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="http://imageurlhere.png" border="0"/></a> and paste it in the widget window, put the link to you social media where it says linkgoeshere, and the image url where it says imageurlhere.

If you can't find the image url, in most sites the link is near the picture if not, try searching in the share section

5. Do the same steps for the rest of your icons and test to see if everything is working properly.

Not that hard right? This post is a preparation for my next freebie that will be published on Monday, and I really like how it is turning out. Come back then if you're in a need for new icons.

DIY 5 Different Square Knot Bracelets

Yay!! I've finally finished the largest video I've ever edited. I've filmed the process for all this bracelets and ended up with so much media that it didn't even fit my poor 16 gb card. Of course, I had to cut most parts off, otherwise this video would be super long.

This was also my first time filming myself, like I said in the video, I'm not used to it and it feels a bit weird talking to a camera, also on top of that speaking in English. So if you don't understand what the heck I'm saying at some point, blame the accent, not me.

How to make a Square Knot- see this post first if you don't know how to make the knot.

You will need:
1st Bracelet
Materials: 50 cm and 1.50 meters of black waxed cord // Studded Beads // Small Golden Beads // Glue or Nail polish.

2nd Bracelet
