Paper Piranha Plant Flowers

May 9th, 2015 - by blackmageheart

This blogger only ever received flowers once in her life – they were pretty but didn’t last long. A more permament and geeky alternative? These paper Piranha Plant flowers from Tally’s Treasury.

Tally’s Treasury provide a detailed guide (complete with templates) on how to make these yourself. If Piranha Plants aren’t your cup of tea, how about a bouquet of Fire Flowers? There’s a guide for that too!

Charm bracelets are still a thing, but you won’t catch this blogger wearing one. Although…I might change my mind if it were something like this awesome work:

This lovely bracelet was created by Pixelosis and is made from Miyuki Delica seed beads and Wildfire bead weaving thread. Beautiful!

ChinookCrafts make some amazing things, like rupees and pieces of heart. But they also make these:

medallions

Armed with a laser cutter, they fashion not only the medallions but the plaque they sit in too. As their Etsy listing says, “Each Sage Temple Plaque comes with six perfectly cut decagon slots to house each of the Sage Medallions as seen in the Sage Temple, and in the Ocarina of Time menu system. To finish it off, a golden trim was added along with a beautiful Golden Triforce in the middle.”
Check out their Etsy store for these items and more laser-cut goodness!

Video Game Cookie Cutters

March 7th, 2015 - by blackmageheart

Etsy shop Francesca4me makes and sells cookie cutters. Not just any old ones, though – these cutters are simply awesome. I’ve picked out some of my favourites to share:

Midna from Twilight Princess:

Samus, Metroid and Logo:
metroid cutters

Majora’s Mask, Fierce Deity and Happy Mask Salesman:
mm cutters

Kanto Starter Pokemon:

They are all made from PLA (Polylactic Acid or Polyactide, which is made from certain types of plants)  using 3D printing. The really great thing about these cutters is the incredible attention to detail. And they have many more wonderful cutters in the shop!
