DIY: A notebook, A sticky ribbon and A Candy box

First, thank you so much to those of you who voted in yesterday’s survey! If you didn’t get a chance to, don’t freak out! You can still let me know what are your favorite parts, and least favorite parts of Life in Sketch, right here.

Yesterday, many of you said you wanted to see more DIY ideas and “How To Create” posts. Well, I’m going to start off with this one that I saw on Design Love Fest. Although this isn’t my idea, Bri is so brilliant that I think you will be really happy. She has tons of really creative ideas and this is a really good example of that. With a some decorative and colorful paper, a ruler, an x-acto knife, some tape, and just a few minutes you can make a simple and unique notebook.

Head over to Design Love Fest for the complete instructions as well as a fun animated image. I haven’t had a chance to make my notebook yet. I’m hoping to try this out over the weekend. If you make one of these notebooks please leave the link in the comments. I’d love to see it!

The Oribbon is a mix of origami and a ribbon. Designed by Azumi Mistuboshi, the sticky paper can be shaped into many forms, including bows for presents. I’m putting it in the DIY area because if you are clever you can make this into many, many different things! Via Plenty of Colour.

Lucky for us, Eat Drink Chic has developed a free downloadable PDF so we can make our own BonBon Candy Favor Boxes. Aside from the color printout, all you need is a ruler, string, an x-acto knife, double sided tape, a cutting mat and wrapped candy. If you are planning a party any time soon, you should really think about making these boxes. I am positive they will be a big hit! Head over to Eat Drink Chic for instructions and images.

I hope you enjoyed these do it yourself tidbits. Please let me know if you try to make any of them. I can’t wait to see how they turned out!
