I guess there just can’t be too many storage containers at home, right? There’re great for organizing stuff. These cuties you can easily make with your kids this weekend. Prepare plastic or paper bags, straight edge (optional), scissors, duct tape, paper packing tape and washi tape. Begin with cutting the bag down to the simple rectangle and laying it flat on the table. Using your washi tape you can now decorate it the way you like. Once you’ve finished, bring the ends together and close the seam with a tape. Flatten the cylinder and close the seam at the base with tape. As the bottom is closed, open the cylinder into a tube and slightly press down on the middle of the closed end. Adjust the triangular shapes so they’re all similar and situated on the same height. Then fold them over and secure with tape. If it stands on its own, you did everything right.
Playing has never been so entertaining! It’s glitter slime without borax. If you wanna make it at home you need 1,5 cups of Sta Flo Liquid Starch and 2,5 oz bottles of Elmer’s Clear Glue to make a slime. You need add these two ingredients to a bowl and mix. It takes a while for the slime to get ready. Keep mixing and in a few minutes, it will all gel and look like the finished product. You can add liquid watercolors, food coloring, paint, glitter. It can be very stretchy, beautiful and fun! Your kid will play with slime, make some things and develop fine motor skills of hands.
I can’t get enough of white nursery designs! There’re so many gorgeous ideas throughout the net, which are really inspiring and so cool! It has been a huge trend in 2013 and most likely it’s gonna be on top in 2014 too. This awesome room specifically was designed by very talented team SISSY + Marley in their signature modern style for a baby boy Dilan. I love the way they played up the safari theme with wild animal accents like fancy rug and faux taxidermy head on the wall, but kept the modern style clean and simple. The room is truly personalized, due to at least name sign above the crib, and accessorized to perfection. And my favorite thing here is probably the sunny window seat, where you can just nestle down. Take a look and get inspired!
A galaxy star nursery mobile is kind of classical. And this one you can easily make by yourself and hang above your kid’s crib or give someone close as a gift for Christmas, for example. Prepare cardstock, glitter paper, drill, double-sided tape, cricut expression 2 (optional), No. 12 screw eyes, fishing line and two 3/8-inch square wood dowels cut down to 22-inches. First drill a small hole into the precise center of each dowels and mark where the star strands will hang. Measure from the left edge of the dowel and mark the top side of the dowel at half, four and eight inches, then repeat on the other side from the right edge. Cut a yard of fishing line and tie a strand at each mark (12 strands total). Lay out the dowels, tape down fishing line and line up the stars. Read the rest at pagingsupermom.com.

These cuties could be such pretty and thoughtful gifts for a little girl! To make one prepare faux-leather, fabric scissors, ruler, pencil, ball head screwback studs, sewing machine and thread, pinking shears, permanent markers, bull-dog clips. First print out the template and cut out each piece. Then lay your leather face-down, trace the pattern pieces onto the back and cut them out. For a one-color pouch, fold the leather in half lining up the bottom edge with 2 bits that stick out. Then sew 2 pieces together 1cm from the edge, ignoring the top flap. Using pinking shears trim each seam fairly close to the stitching and trim corners. Turn your pouch right-side out and fold the top flap in half vertically with the underside out. Mark the spot for a stud and poke a pencil through it, marking a spot on the pouch front. Snip this cross and then stick the screw base through the hole from the inside and screw on the ball head.
