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!

I discovered these shadowboxes today while reviewing my Etsy feed, and I just love them! They’re made by ThePaperPonyPlace.
They have so many more shadowboxes in their store, too - from videogames to anime, Doctor Who to My Little Pony. Each shadowbox is made with card stock, placed in layers that makes them pop from the background. Check out the shop and their dA account for more!

I love quirky lighting projects, and especially video game ones. I discovered these awesome LED light pieces in the Etsy store of TheDailyRobot.
Each piece is made from multiple layers of laser-etched acrylic and are side lit by LEDs. I think they are stunning! There’s more in the Etsy store, do check it out!

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:
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!

Once in a while we need a dose of cuteness on the blog, and today’s offering is sleepy Eeveelutions!
These curled-up cuties are made of fleece by VizionsofGrandeur on Etsy, who says they were “inspired by a day of naps with my cat”!

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:
Majora’s Mask, Fierce Deity and Happy Mask Salesman:
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!
