Mushroom Scrabble Tile Art

Saturday, June 21st, 2014

I’ve seen things done with Scrabble tiles before, mostly names and words (obviously – it is Scrabble!)  but this one by TileFrame is pretty good!

The coloured tiles are great for this kind of art. If you look closely, you’ll see Mario-related words hidden in the mushroom!

Sometimes, the simplest ideas are the best ones. Like this Chain Chomp crocheted key cover by Pops de Milk!

3D Paper Dioramas of Classic Videogames

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

Dioramas are great, great things. Tiny versions of awesome stuff. And videogame dioramas are the best! Wuppes, from Luxembourg, makes fantastic ones, just with paper!

They all have a real sense of depth and everything really pops out at you. The cardmakers and papercrafters among you will know how this is done, and it’s a really effective technique! Wuppes has made a whole range of different games from various genres and systems, definitely worth a look!

Rupee Coin Purse

PinkPoodle from the forums wanted to make something quick, and when she bought a little aida coin purse at the craft store, she decided to stitch some rupees on it.

Very simple project but also very nice too!

Haunter Appliqué Hoop

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

IggyStarpup has been featured on the blog before, but I just could not resist this delightful Haunter Hoop!

Haunter and its hearts are made of felt which have been appliquéd on to some pretty fabric, and set in a gorgeous green hoop. The embroidered words at the top are in a similar green, which just brings it all together. I might just have to get me one. :)
