A personalized banner creates a stately reception decoration when it’s hung from greenery set on a mantel or tall table. To make, you’ll need a 6-by-40-inch sheet of lightweight paper.
1. Trim top of banner so it gently curves in, creating an arc shape, then trim bottom…

For the reception, re-create the beauty of etching with ease. All you need is a rubber stamp, white ink, and glass candleholders — frosted glass holds ink best. One stamp can form a single motif or an allover pattern. (For a custom design, such as your monogram, have a stamp made at an office-supply store.) To use a large stamp on a cylindrical container, carefully roll it from side to side. Allow a day or two for ink to fully dry.
Love this idea. Pick out a tie or suspenders and wrap his gift. Perfect, stylish and practical.
Remember that video on how to fold a dollar bill into a dress shirt & tie? Well, I used that idea to create this year’s Father’s Day card. I made three (for my dad, step dad, and father-in-law) in different colors, and attached the folded shirt with painter’s tape.

So today I spent an hour measuring and cutting out cardboard pieces to make an in-drawer divider for my nail polish collection! It looks pretty good, and I’m happy with the results :3

I have a box of these somewhere just waiting for a project like this to come along, very cool. Years ago, when they were a dime a dozen, my brother and I thought of making night lights out of them and selling them on eBay (when it was fun) or the flea market. I like this idea much better, for my own patio, at least.
