Time for the DIY CRAFT TUTORIAL LINKY PARTY again. Before I delve into what’s next, I really want to congratulate you all for your contributions to date. There are just so many gorgeous posts and projects out there, that this week, again I had a hard time sticking to featuring just 5..




Featured Contributions

I would like to feature 5 absolutely excellent Christmas Tree ornaments, home decorations or handmade card tutorials that were amongst the DIY craft tutorial party members last week. I love them. Thank you all for sharing these great projects of ingenuity and showing off your creative talents and so inspiring us all! Love it!

paper wreath tutorial

I’ve already have enough wreath-tutorials on my site, I thought, …. until…. I saw this one!

Cool, great, easy…. inexpensive.

handmade Christmas cards

Creation Corner is featuring the tutorial for this card by  Chris, from Pickup Some  Creativity.

handmade zipper greeting card  
This ‘How to Make a Zip up card’-tutorial allows you to truly make unique Christmas cards this year.   Thank you, Sandy Ang.

I just LOVE her creativity!
This card reminds me of our own “I Love You Dad” zipper card that we made to celebrate Fathers day but which you could equally use at other times.


As per usual, there were more that qualified for ‘Best of’.  Hop over to last week’s DIY’ Craft Tutorial Party to have a look at the others.

I think I already featured these cones (or similar) last year in an overview post on Christmas tree  ornaments and handmade decorations, however, they’re so fun that I’m happy to feature them twice! 

(All you need is glitter glue, bits of wool, and some pine cones from your neighbor’s tree…)

  1. Love that zip card. Have never seen anything like it before!

  2. Fine Craft Guild says:

    I know, she’s really talented, isn’t she?

    I love being inspired by you all with just great, great ideas and how-to’s. I actually visit my parties a couple of times a week now, just to browse and see new things, and visit new blogs. I’m feeling humble these days in the face of so much creativity.

    Thank you for your contribution and comment also, Chantal, and for starting the party. :-) Your bunting is lovely. Would you believe I never made any bunting ever, only many kinds of paper garlands, ie. those featured on this blog: flowers, ghosts, paper cuts, letter garlands, etc. Soo, I shall check out that tutorial for it, as ‘easy peasy’ is an attractive phrase to me…
