Double-Sided Paper Mache Bowl

Double-Sided Paper Mache Bowl

I found many a beautiful paper mache bowl in internet and I like those compact bowls, so this tutorial this tutorial was like made for me ;-)
I tried the technique and it worked out well and looked great. Unfortunately I gave them away (I made two bowls in different sizes) and don’t have any photo of them.

Drying Flowers in the Microwave

Drying Flowers in the Microwave

I really like dried flowers, but I want to have them immediately, not after some days hidden in old books ;-)
Then I found this tutorial, where Christine Cox describes how to dry flowers in a microwave. She even tells about experiences she did with different kinds of flowers.

Making a Bead Spinner

Making a Bead Spinner

Yesterday I presented a how-to crochet with beads. For the rope you have to string beads on a thread which is a boring exercise. When you simply want to string the beads without any pattern you can use a bead spinner. Kimberly Chapman published a tutorial for making yourself a bead spinner out of reused materials.
What a great idea!
