DIY Temporary Tattoos + Free PrintableGuys, I have just been dying to share this posts with you! It was so hard to keep it all a secret! I teamed up with one of my favorite illustrators, Ann Shen, to make these temporary tattoos a free printable. That’s right, you can make your own temporary tattoos at home! If there was I time I couldn’t even, it would be right now. Okay, enough blubbering, here’s how you do it:

Time: 10 minutes
Materials: printer, tattoo paper, scissors, printable
Cost: $8

DIY Temporary Tattoos + Free PrintableEven though the tattoo paper is made by Silhouette, you don’t need a machine to do this project. You really just need your ink jet printer at home! The Silhouette is great if you’re cutting out a bunch, but if you’re just making a few, scissors can easily get the job done.

DIY Colorful Photo Backdrops

Time: 10 minutes + dry time
Materials: poster board, mini roller, paint

Learn how to make colorful photo backdrops in only 10 minutes!As much as I love the clean and simple aesthetic of the white backdrop, it seems that the smallest smudge can make it unusable. Which let’s face it, happens more often than not when crafting. Instead of recycling your less than perfect stash, try painting them to give them a new and colorful life!

You can use acrylic craft paint, I just chose to use the leftover paint I had from this planter project.

If your poster board is really thin, the edges will curl up, so once the paint is dry, flip over and weigh the corners down with books. This should help controlling the curling a bit.

10 Minutes or Less: DIY Jeweled Eyeglass Case

Time: 10 minutes
Materials: eyeglass case, E-6000 glue, acrylic gems

Make this jeweled eyeglass case in less than 10 minutes!After getting my new glasses, I instantly starting thinking of ways to makeover the case they came in. That’s everyones first reaction, right? Since I’ve never been big on neutrals, I decided to add a splash of color with a few acrylic gems!

**PS– If you don’t have an eyeglass case, be sure to enter my giveaway to Bonlook.

Make this jeweled eyeglass case in less than 10 minutes!This project is so easy, you don’t really even need a step by step (it’s just glueing some gems on top of an eyeglass case, right?). I do recommend that you play around with the placement of your gems, especially if they’re different shapes, before glueing down. You can move them a few minutes after glueing down, but it’s not recommended since you any extra glue goop will be visible.

Once finished, set aside and let dry, ideally overnight.
