friday creative

today's friday creative involves office supplies and for those of you that don't know me yet, you will soon learn that i love office supplies! today we are making binder clip photo holders, it's a super easy and brilliant idea that i've seen around but it was most recently suggested to me by my wonderful friend elizabeth. she is the owner of treasury of memories, the most fantastic store where you go to get lots of the supplies for our friday projects like patterned paper, gluestick, etc.

supplies:
-large binder clips
-patterned paper
-gluestick
-sandpaper
-photos

how to:
-cut your patterned paper to fit your binder clips.
-adhere paper to clips with gluestick.
-sand edges lightly.
-place photo in clip. and ta-da!

happy friday!

friday creative

today's friday creative was my adorable husband's idea...we found this old vise (while shopping for another friday creative project that i have up my sleeve) and he said sweetly "wouldn't this make a cool photo holder?" well what a wonderful idea adorable husband! i think he wanted me to make it for him but i had to share the idea with you first, especially because i think it makes a wonderful father's day gift!

supplies:
-tabletop vise (local girls check out the re-store for a vintage version, look for a new one at sears & maybe peek at other tools that might may awesome photo holders)
-photo
-chipboard (find this at treasury of memories)
-gluestick
-sandpaper

how to:
-cut chipboard the same size as photo (a rotary paper trimmer works great for this).
-use gluestick to adhere photo to chipboard.
-sand the edges of photo & chipboard as desired.
-place in vise (or other cool tool) and admire your handy work!

p.s. thanks to miss kim for letting me use my buddy's photo. much love to you both!

friday creative

welcome to a new feature here at the carly tee blog called friday creative. every friday there will be a new creative photo project because i know we all have tons of photos sitting around collecting dust. hopefully these projects will inspire you to take your wonderful photos out of their sad piles and show them the beautiful light of day.

let's get started...

today's friday creative is a simple photo clothesline, inspired by a mega full-room version i had in college and a creating keepsakes article from february 2009 which reminded me what a cute idea it was.

supplies:
-clothespins
-patterned paper
-gluestick
-sandpaper
-twine
-tacks
-photos

how to:
-cut patterned paper to fit front & back of clothespins. remember to measure twice and cut once, (seriously this works).
-adhere paper to clothespins with gluestick and lightly sand edges.
-create clothesline on wall by just cutting twine to desired length and attaching with tacks (the round metal tacks are especially cute in a fun office supply kinda way).
-add photos.
-wasn't that ridiculously easy? and you can change out photos with the season. mine are just a few of my current spring favorites.

have fun!

p.s. need a great place to pick up supplies, head to treasury of memories.
