Inkling: crepe paper corsage

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and you may want to get your mother, grandmother, aunt or friend a corsage.


Fresh flower corsages are beautiful but if you want an option that’s easy on the wallet, you can make one with crepe paper flowers.

These crepe paper flowers are super easy to make. You can check out an earlier tutorial here.

Once you make your flowers simple glue them onto a piece of cardboard and add a safety pin to the back side.

The best part – this corsage won’t be all withered the next day.

Upcycling: tray makeover - faux tile

I gave another item from my kitchen a makeover.


This old tray had seen better days.


My original plan was to spray paint the handles and frame black and the inside tray white. I was then going to paint a simple black design on the white tray. Well, the black paint seeped onto the white, then the white onto the black. I ditched the idea and went to Plan B.

I found an image of some pretty tile online and printed out several “tiles” onto a light cardstock. I cut out the tiles and Mod Podged them onto the tray covering up the messed up paint.

I’m glad my original plan didn’t work because I love my new faux tile tray.
