Amazing Mae!

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

I’m officially in love with all things Mae! Creators of what are surely the worlds most adorable fabric wall decals, Mae has stolen my heart! Their use of pattern and simple imaginative scenes are the perfect mix of childhood playfulness and grown-up sensibilities. They even just launched a limited edition Mae Christmas collection!

Purchase them from the Mae Shop and visit the Studio of Mae blog for product updates, inspiration and even a few freebies!

I’ve covered Lisa Rupp before and she continues to impress. Take this baby blanket for example, she designed the fabric especially for her little one, how wonderful is that?! Even better, she’s now selling the fabric so you can make your own.

And speaking of selling, the Twig & Thistle Etsy shop will be in vacation mode for two weeks starting tomorrow, August 7th, so if you need something soon get your orders in now!

Here is the last of my Easter DIY Projects, and what better place to put your homemade Bunny and Peeps than a home made Easter Basket! All you need is a printer, double sided tape and paper.

STEP 1: Print all four pages of template onto 8.5×11” paper and follow the enclosed instructions.

STEP 2: Adhere your template to a large sheet of art paper (at least 12.5”x12.5”) with low tack tape. If you need to, cut down the template so that if fis onto your paper. A thick watercolor paper or any color of craft paper would be a good choice. Using the template as a guide, score along dotted lines with a bone folder and a ruler. With an x-acto knife and a ruler, cut along solid BLUE lines. You now have the basket shape ready to fold!

STEP 3: Fold along each of the scored lines to create basket shape. Corner pieces fold inward while the top flaps fold down on the outside.

STEP 4: Cut four pieces of ribbon to 10”. Tuck ribbon under first flap and secure with a piece of double-sided tape adhered to the inside of the flap. Repeat process for all sides and tie ribbon into knots at each of the corners. Once all four sides are tied and taped shut you’ve got your homemade basket ready to fill with sweet treats!
