Melted Crayon Pokeball

It’s been a crazy week here in Barcelona and I’ve been super busy with all sorts of things. Finally it’s Sunday and all my plans for the day have been washed away by a tremendous rain that doesn’t seem to want to stop… 😦

But since I have to stay at home, I’m going to share with you one of my recent discoveries: Printing designs onto clothes by melting crayon shavings! I saw THIS in the internet and I thought it was super cool and new! Then I talked about it with a friend and she told me that this is a very old technique and that she did a lot of things with it at school, when she was a child. 😦

Anyway, new or old, I think it’s very clever, so I had to give it a try. I found the perfect occasion two weeks ago when my brother got his first job as a music teacher in a school. I wanted to give him something as a congratulations gift because I’m very happy for him and super proud! He was born in 1992 and he liked Pokemon very much when he was younger, and now he’s old enough to start having that nostalgia feeling for the way the world was “back in the days”, and for that I thought a T-shirt with the image of a pokeball would be cool.

Origami dress birthday gift card

Wow! It’s been a while! I didn’t have the chance to blog much during my summer vacations, but now I’m back in the city and ready to return to my routine –or almost.

Today I bring you something quick and easy: an origami dress.

Sometimes we have to give money to someone for their birthday and money really is an ugly thing to give, so it’s always better to make a gift card or something nice as part of the present.

I made this for my sister in law’s birthday. We were told that she wanted a dress, but since those things are so personal, we thought a gift card and the money was a better option.

This is the tutorial I followed but there are many others out there.

I’m preparing something very cool for next week but I can’t post it yet because it’s a birthday present for my friend Marta who could be reading this post so -psssss-. All I can say is that it has glitter… and she is going to love it! 🙂
