3  Ballerina Tea Light Cake in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by paypahchasa on: February 05, 2015 03:44:40 PM

HI GUYS! I'm so excited to share this tutorial because it's the first tealight cake design of 2015.


Coloured papers (4 shades)
Cake template
LED tealight candle
Glue gun
Jewel stickers
Paper Trimmer (optional)

Paper Prep

Begin with an 8.5x11" of the coloured paper. Cut in half lengthwise to give 2, 4.25x11".  Then cut it along the 11" side into 0.5" strips, this gives you strips that are 0.5x4.25".  You will need 14-16 strips.

Set aside your lightest shade of paper.

With the 3 darker shades, begin with an 8.5x11" of the coloured paper. Cut in half lengthwise to give 2, 4.25x11". Then cut it along the 11" side into 0.5" strips, this gives you strips that are 0.5x4.25".

You will need 14-16 strips

Take your strip and fold the corner into an acute triangle. Fold the triangle in on itself along the inside edge. Fold the working end back on itself. Then fold the triangle in half, this acts like a spindle. Begin rolling the the spindle into the working end until you reach the end of the fold. Fold the working end back on itself, like before. Continue rolling and folding the working end until you reach the end of the strip. Add some glue and secure into place. Snip off the excess paper at the bottom of the rose.

Attach the face and side pieces to your tealight candle. Place glue on the back of the rose and glue it onto the cake starting from the bottom with the darkest shade. Add some bling stickers to the top of the candle.

4  Christmas Glitter Candles in Winter Holidays by paypahchasa on: December 05, 2014 02:38:49 PM

As I work in retail I have seen 25$ scented candles and decided that I could spend less and get the same effect.
My dollar store finds: $1 for each unscented candle, $2 for a jar of glitter (6 colours), $1 for a spindle of twine, and $1-$1.25 for some glass cups, I was able to create unique looking candles for this holiday season.

I love the look of the glitter as they are all custom designed and colour chosen by me! =].

If you want to see how I made these check it out:

5  Little Yarn Toques in Winter Holidays by paypahchasa on: November 19, 2014 04:03:32 PM

I decided for this Christmas season I will be making a lot of my decorations and holiday goodies. I made some small yarn toques for the Christmas holiday to hang on the Christmas tree. These were extremely easy to make and came out better than I expected. All you need is some yarn, toilet paper rolls, and scissors.

DIY Tutorial: http://youtu.be/dc5KuzI5Ycg

Here are some photos of the finished product.  I have also made a couple more using 2 and 3 differently coloured yarn to make the same toque and it looks absolutely beautiful.

I'm so excited for this holiday season and all the DIY projects to be made Smiley

Happy Crafting!

6  Cowabunga dude! TMNT Costume(s) *Picture Heavy* in Halloween Costumes by paypahchasa on: November 04, 2014 08:50:54 PM
Hello Craftsters! For this years Halloween festivities I drafted and made 4 shell bags for my friends and I. I took a bit of a spin on the costumes but tried to keep them as authentic as 20 something year olds would.

I did a thorough search online to see what my options were in making myself the shell but I only came across painted aluminum trays...not too impressive in my books.  Undecided I've never drafted a pattern before so it took be a bit to understand and get my mind around how to put it together I documented my progress in a video tutorial (http://youtu.be/X9-JGUP_hk0) but here's the gist of everything:

The materials list are few and simple.  I found really inexpensive fabric for this costume since I was sewing with my fingers crossed; hoping things would run smoothly. Green nylon was $2/m and the yellow and brown fabric (broadcloth I think it's called) was $3.25/m.

Pins were my best friend which made sewing this part really slow but it was worth not getting anything snagged or sewn in crooked.

Detailing was what made the shell stand out.  The batting gave it a nice plumb effect.

I bought red, blue, purple, and orange broadcloth about half a metre each for masks, belts, arm wraps, and leg wraps.  I sort of failed at making the mask lay flat on my face...it looked a bit silly especially with my glasses over. So I ended up rolling the fabric and using it as a headband.

For my shirt, I remember years ago seeing a DIY t-shirt screening post that used simple acrylic paint.  I stenciled out the lines with some fabric markers and outlined with black, then used brown to shade.  Some parchment paper and an iron to seal it all in.  I haven't washed it yet to see if the paint holds, but it sure withstood a night of extreme dancing  Grin

I had a great time designing and creating this costume.  I've shared everything on my blog and would love any advice on better pattern drafting Smiley  Can't wait for next year!

7  Sugar Skull Costume in Halloween Costumes by paypahchasa on: October 31, 2014 03:51:53 AM

This easy DIY is perfect for any last minute Halloween costume ideas.  I was inspired by a pin, but can't seem to find the picture anymore Sad  Regardless, I love how the head band came out and it's perfect for the Day of the Dead sugar skull trend going around this year!

For 5 roses
4-5 sheets of paper
Eyeballs (got these from the dollar store $1.25)
hot glue gun

1. Cut your paper in half, width wise twice, then into 4.  You will have 16 pieces. Repeat with other sheets of paper

2. First layer petals Cut your 1/16 piece in half, then into a curved U shape.  Make a slit at the tip of the curve, bend the flaps towards each other and glue into place. Bend the curved edge back on itself.

3. For the rest of the layers, cut your pieces into a tear drop shape.

4. Second layer petals Cut 2 slits, one and the top of the curve and one at the bottom pointed tip.  Bend then flaps inward and glue into place. Repeat for the top and bottom slits.  Curve the top edge back on itself.

5. Third layer petals Cut 1 slit into the bottom pointy end of the teardrop.  Again, Bend and glue into place.  Use your thumb to help you curve the edge back.

At this point I added glue to the edging of the petals and rolled them in glitter.  This step is optional, but I think it gives the roses an amazing look.

6. First layer petals You need three (3) pieces. Glue into triangle formation on the eyeball.
Second layer petals You need five (5) pieces. Add glue onto 1 side of the petal, attach.  For every consecutive petal, add glue onto the same 1 side, slip under the unglued side of the previous petal and press into place.
Third layer petals You need five (5) pieces.  Repeat as you did with the second layer petals.  Once complete, flip over and glue down the unglued side of the petal.

7. Add a 1 inch circle to the back of each rose.  Glue onto your head band.

8  DIY Fanged Pumpkin Carving in Halloween Decor and Parties by paypahchasa on: October 17, 2014 10:23:02 PM

Here's another cute, simple, and fun tutorial for this upcoming Halloween season!  DIYs for this holiday are plentiful,

For the sake of simplicity, I skimped out on painting the pumpkin because it looked totally awesome without Tongue

The materials needed are few and simple:
beads for eyes
x-acto knife
vampire teeth
glue gun
paint (optional)

Peel off any stickers and wipe  down your pumpkin for any dirt and grime.

Next you want to take your teeth place it where you want the mouth to be and trace around. Tracing and cutting on the line didn't give me perfect fit for the vampire teeth so use this more of a guideline for the width of the opening.

Then take your x acto knife and start cutting on the line you traced out.

When you finished cutting out the mouth use the x acto knife to pry at a angle  the mouth that you traced will eventually pop open so you can empty out the seeds.

Be careful cutting out the mouth.  If you are under the age of 18, make sure you have an adult do this for you.

You can wash and clean these seeds, salt and roast them for delicious pumpkin seeds!

Go for a clear bead for the eyes, it gives off a glow-ey gleam!

Pop in the vampire teeth and you got yourself a cute DIY pumpkin carving ready to scare all the kids off your block! MUAHAHAH

Here is the Youtube Video for more instructions

10  Fathers Birthday Explosion Box in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by paypahchasa on: September 07, 2014 01:03:10 PM
Hi folks,

This box was made for my dad's 56th birthday.  He's an avid fisher so I make the cake fishing themed.  The white boat is a simple origami boat (he taught me how to fold it as a kid ^^); the fishing rod is made from a tooth pick, thread, a bead, and some paper; the cooler is made from a simple rectangular prism net.


I was testing out a couple of setups throughout filming of the box so please excuse the choppy set cuts.  I've officially found my permanent set up though for all craft videos Cheesy

Happy Crafting!
