Do you remember the ipad of the 80’s?  Lacing Cards.

You know the kind right?

Well this project is like that, only its really cute and something that you actually will want to hang on your walls!

To make this project you will need:

Cricut Explore
Cricut Explore Markers (see my alternative option here!)
110# Cardstock
String
Teeny bit of tape

This is a Make It Now project that I designed for the Cricut Explore which means all you have to do it click the Make It Now button and it automatically sizes and cuts everything exactly the way that I designed it!!

One of the features of the Cricut Explore that I love SO much is the write and cut feature.  It does it all in one pass, so it is perfectly lined up every time!!

Just make sure that all of the dotted lines are covered with yarn.  Dylan my 6 year old super loved this project, so it is definitely for smaller kids, as well as older ones.  (Or kids a heart for those of you who are like me and love it as an adult.)

Cold Dead Fingers // 9

Lets kick off January (errr. almost Feburary…) with a round of Cold Dead Fingers shall we?  If you are new to the game, dont fret, here is how it goes down.  On Instagram when you upload your favorite furniture/thrift store finds, all you have to do is hashtag it #colddeadfingers.  Why cold dead fingers?  Because it is SO AMAZING that it can only be pried from your cold dead fingers of course!  Also who would have thought that I could use the phrase cold dead fingers 5 times in one paragraph?  Mad skills.

Up first is this gorgeous lamp that Mandie (great name!) found.  She paid $10.  Guess what?  It’s worth $500.

Wooden hand?  Always a good idea.

Tori found a pair of these MCM arm chairs.  She’s wondering how she should reupolster them. Chime in below with your thoughts!! Personally I am going to say leather, anyone surprised?

Everything but the print was thrifted.  I feel like I need to look for brass candlesticks for my life to be complete again.
