Cork Board

Sorry for the double pillow post... I wasn't thinking :)

Cork Board
What you need
cork board

I found this idea on Make it Love it, but she changed up her blog and I can't find it back. 

I already had a cork board but wanted to make it sassier. I couldn't find the right size frame so instead I bought long pieces of skinny wood at Hobby Lobby, cut it (well I didn't cut it) and glue it together with wood glue.

Trace your frame on your fabric

Cut out. It doesn't have to be cut pretty. As you can see mine is pitiful.

I made slits in each corner so that when I Mod Podged it it would be easier.

Mod Podged the fabric on the back of the frame.
It should look like this! TADA! 

Then you have to somehow attach the cork in there. I glued mine in then glued a tick strip of felt on each side.

I also put ribbon around the top so I could put these cute mini clothes pins to use.


O I am not forgetting about bedroom pictures! My room just is never the cleanest place. I will definitely work on that over the long weekend! 
Trying to catch up on tutorials this weekend too!

It's about time for a tutorial

It has been ages since the last post! I/we really gotta get better at this! We have had lots of homework/tests and the weekends just fly by, so posting isn't thought of much. 

PB Teen inspired Pillow Tutorial
I made this pillow some time ago (during the summer actually). I found a pillow like it in a PB teen magazine, but it was a little out of price range. So instead I created my own.  

What you need
Felt (about 3-4 sheets)
hot glue
Card board 

You start off by making 4 stencils; big, medium, small, extra small with the card board.

Take the large petal stencil and trace about 8 petals (you may have extras or need more. Depending on how you lay it out)

Trace about 8 with the medium too. 

11 for the small, and 5 for the extra small.

*Next step are done with both the small and the extra small*

With your petals estimate where the middle of your petal is and draw with pencil (or you can just guess) a little less than 1/2 way up. 

This is where you will put a line of hot glue and pinch together to get...

After you have all your small and extra small petals glued get your pillow and glue on your large petals, overlapping slightly.

Get your medium petals and overlap them over the large petals looking like this:

(sorry no pic for the next step) 
Glue 2 "layers" of the small size. Then overtop clue the extra small size.
And your done!
