cnt-0011325_detail-01_m2xSince my children are all adults, and I have very little storage space in my home, I don’t have a lot of toys available for small guests.

Sometimes, when I have children visit, I like to make a few quick, disposable playthings using my com­put­er. Most of the projects listed on this page can be assembled in an hour or less. I also frequently choose a project that requires black ink only, in order to save money.

Because of the nature of paper, none of these toys will last beyond a few hours.  So keep that in mind when deciding how much of your time you want to invest in one of these projects.

Tips

Printing : Print these projects out on the thickest cardstock that will go through your printer. If only regular paper will go through your printer, paste the printouts onto cardstock using a glue stick.

If you don’t own a color printer, print the projects out in black and white, but on colored paper.

Gluing : Avoid using glue if you can. A good quality glue stick works much better because it doesn’t warp the paper.

Cutting : Make each cut as long as you can. The more individual snips you make, the worse the result.

From the time I saw my first recycled Toilet Paper Roll project posted on Design Sponge, I have been OBSESSED with the possibilities of this free and versatile crafting supply.

Since that time, back in 2009, a world of toilet paper roll reuse projects has sprung up all over the internet. The lowly toilet paper roll is no longer relegated just to the kids craft box. It’s now a supply used in adult crafts seen in the chicest of  homes.

Enough said!

Polymer Clay Jewelry Projects are the most common items made from oven drying clay.

Why?

For two main reasons. One, polymer clay can imitate virtually any stone or material, making it extremely versatile. And two, since jewelry is small, polymer clay jewelry projects require very small amounts of expensive clay.

Luckily for us, dozens of designers have gotten to work designing these great projects.

home sewing projectsI’ve had a lot of fun updating this page. It was first posted in 2008 and a lot of what was new and stylish then, became outdated over the years. In addition, my own taste has changed over the years, and has become a lot less fussy.  So, if you’re looking for a clean and modern aesthetic, you’ll find it here.

Home sewing projects allow you to coordinate your entire decor for just the cost of a yard or two of fabric.

For example, my bathroom in my house in Baltimore had pink, white and black tiles. I searched everywhere for a matching window shade but was unsuccessful. One day, in a burst of genius, I decided to make my own. I used a very retro black and white cotton fabric. The shade came out lovely and I enjoyed compliments from everyone who saw it. Best of all, it only cost about $8.00 and took less than an 1 1/2 hours.

The projects listed below are some of my favorites.
