Self-made Lamp

Self-made Lamp

This isn’t a real instruction but more of an inspiration. At Atelier Verena you can follow a class about recycling. At her website, Atelier Verena describes how to make your own recycled lamp (last item on page): glue two terracotta pots together, wrap them with fabric, use some fabric stiffener and paint it with acrylic colour.
I haven’t done it yet, but I think that you also can wrap the glued pots with paper mache or plaster of paris and do some kind of collage or decoupage or glueing interesting tissues an it and so forth.

Paper Matchbox Slide Box

Paper Matchbox Slide Box

I love those little boxes suitable for little gifts. So I was delighted founding instructions on how to fold an Origami one and made one immediatly. It was done with wrappings from dark chocolate which was completely adequate for the one who got the little box ;-))

CD or DVD Storage ‘Book’

Most of us have lots of CDs and/or DVDs to put somewhere we can find them back. I don’t especially like the CD cases from the point of view of their looks. Such a CD book can be so much more kitschy than every CD case can be ;-) (although some try hard ;-)))
