Early Spring Craft Index: "Punched tin" and "Up-cycle" and More!

Signs of March!

March and April are usually the months during which, in addition to playing with Easter Eggs, I am often engaged in working with "tin" or sharing ideas for reuse and recycle. And after five years of blogging, I have assembled a nice collection of tutorials in both catagories! So - if you are interested in either of these crafty subjects - keep reading!

My friend Michelle has inspired me on more than one occasion to think about the crafty possibilities of cereal box cardboard! Guess what - I just used it again - to make God's Eyes! And turned what was at first a negative outcome into a very cool new way to make God's Eyes! 3-D God's eyes!

You see, the problem that occurs when using cereal box cardboard for the supports is that after winding the yarn about four times, the God's Eye will begin to curve. No stopping it!
