DIY Tunic Style Shirt

By Guest Blogger Kelly from the blog So Much to Make.

Kelly shares something for everyone on So Much to Make. Check out her blog for sewing tutorials, recipes, easy arts and craft tutorials, printables and more.

DIY Tunic Style Shirt

Nothing is more comfy in hot weather than something that feels like you aren’t wearing it at all. Nudity without the embarrassment of exposure—that’s what this tunic-style shirt feels like.

And it was SO easy to make. You make ONE cut. You sew TWO seams. Finish edges, sew in the elastic shirred waist (this isn’t hard, but does take about as long as the rest of the shirt-making combined), and you have a new, fun, flattering top!

Start with the right fabric. I bought this as a remnant, so I don’t know exactly what it is. I’m guessing it’s a rayon challis. You’ll want a fabric that is lightweight, drapes well and isn’t too crisp or thick.

Mini Flower Wreath

By Guest Blogger Tina from the blog Crafted Living

As the Writer, Photographer, and Creator of Crafted Living, Tina gives step by step tutorials for creative cardmaking, recipes, and inspiration for living crafty.

Mini paper flower wreath

This little mini wreath is a perfect desk accessory to brighten up your office through those dark winter months. Its small size is great for bookshelves, bulletin boards, or anywhere else you need a little color. Don’t have the sweet treats cartridge or a cricut machine? Find some floral paper punches you love and create your own version!

You need the following tools and supplies to create this wreath:

Cut the flowers using the Sweet Treats cartridge at the following sizes: Flower 1 and 5 at 2″ and Flowers 2,3 and 4 at 1.5″.  For Flower 1, punch two circles per flower at .75″ and 1″ with circle punches.  For Flower 2, cut the centers from the cartridge at 1.5″.  For Flower 3, punch a circle at .75″.  For Flower 4, cut the center from the cartridge at 1.5″.  For Flower 5, cut the center from the cartridge at 2″ and punch a circle at 1″.  Run the flower centers through the Cuttlebug machine to emboss.  Put all of the flowers together and adhere to the wire wreath form with hot glue.

This wreath was my first attempt at using the Cricut paper flowers.  I am thrilled with the results and now am a little obsessed with the process.  So many variations and color ways.  The possibilities are endless!  By the way, my mother has displayed it amongst her pressed glass bowls on her sideboard.  Perfect!
