Do you have a green thumb?

If the answer is NO, this DIY is exactly for you! There’s no need for water to gave birth to the following CACTUS!

Here is the idea to make a special “cactus birthday card“.

 

TOOLS

To make this DIY birthday card you only need:

  • a white paper sheet
  • ¬†green paper sheets (at least in 3 different colors)
  • decorated and colored sheets (use and reuse what you have at home)
  • ¬†scissors and glue
  • and the secret tool:¬† your fantasy!

STEP ONE:

Choose a green sheet to cut two different shapes: an hearth and a leaf.

Then follow the second picture to make the paper plant.

Then following  your fantasy and tools make many different plants in colors and shapes.

You can choose a color to make a flower and different layers of green paper to make the Cactus plant more real with spines.

The following one with a pink flower is the one i prefer the most ūüôā

The sky is the only limit for your fantasy! Continue reading “DIY Paper Cactus – Free postcard n. 5”

Paper roses DIY & Happy Mother’s Day! – Free postcard n.4

Paper roses: In this tutorial i will help you to make realistic¬†paper roses in a very simple way! ¬†This is a cheap solution to make a flower bouquet with your imagination . My idea is to use paper roses to decorate¬†a card for the upcoming Mother’s day . Your mom¬†will for sure appreciate it ūüôā

Happy mother's day

May is the month of the year i prefer the most for several reasons.

  • I was born the 8th of¬†May, this is why i feel very comfortable with this period
  • there are many different flowers in the fields
  • the sky i turns into a deep and warm blue
  • I usually start to go for long walkings to the beach
  • I use to eat at least one ice-cream at week!

There is also a nice coincidence, in several places in the world the 8th of May is usually know as the “Mother’s day” and roses are the best known flowers of this period!

Free Carnival postcard & mask – Free postcard n.2

I’m happy to share with you ¬†a diy “Carnival postcard”: a paper postcard that can be used as a mask too.¬†

The key words of this blog post are: Carnival + DIY + postcard + art therapy, such a great mix of ideas!

(ps. This is the second FREE POSTCARD¬†i made, if you missed the first one…have a look to¬†this page.)

The Carnival-postcard-mask was a present for my super¬†friend Irene.¬†The drawing for the postcard was inspired by her and the gorgeous city where she lives: Barcelona. Irene is an enthusiastic architect, i think she’ll enjoy the idea that she can color herself the postcard-mask.

Download for free the Carnival Mask i made for my friend Irene – here – .

The idea, the project and the drawing is a “Do it Juicy” original idea, inspired by “art therapy”.

I’m a proud supporter of the power of colors and pencils, drawing help my to be¬†concentrated and has a¬†therapeutic power.

(WIKI¬†… ¬†Adult coloring books¬†help with developing fine motor skills and vision, reducing anxiety and creating focus, and relieving stress and anxiety in a manner similar to¬†meditation.[19]¬†Concentrating on coloring may facilitate the replacement of negative thoughts and images with pleasant ones….)¬†

The “Carnival-postcard-mask” has a double use:

  • you can choose to write-colour-and send it to a fried
  • or you can just made your own carnival mask…HOW?

Just follow the following instructions, but first download here the FREE TEMPLATE:
