Watercolour Fall Floral Cake Topper DIY


Autumn. Wind blowing, leaves crackling, pumpkins glowing, the season showing- us its colours. Almost a poem, there. What can I say? Fall brings out a change in the air. So, naturally, it’s time for a fall-inspired project.  Somehow, I never seem to have any lack of projects to do- they just seem to find me. Take for instance, this particular project.…

DIY Polaroid Coasters and Wall Decor!


Polaroids. Probably one of the trendiest things right now. But, I can honestly say, though- that I liked them way, way back before when they weren’t given so much importance.

A Paper Crafted Cake (in 3D!)


I made this for a birthday occasion-and it just came out looking so pretty and classy. Well, as classy as paper gets. It’s really simple as far as embellishments go-I didn’t decorate the paper used, but making it is just a teensy bit more detailed. Not to worry, though. I got you covered.
