Skill level
Beginner

Supplies needed:
– 1 x set of Fabric Tape in Afresh
– 1 x set of Fabric Stickers in Afresh
– 1 x Beige Twine
– 1 x Dailylike Lace DL06
– Fresh flowers
– Fabric napkins
– Small gift boxes
– Hole punch
– Metal napkin rings (optional)
– Pencil and Scissors

I love the idea of staying away from the traditional Christmas styles and just making a beautiful, homely entertaining space that feels really special for the festive season. With a combo of soft greens, fabric textures and fresh flowers you can make a space that still has a Christmas vibe, but will have your guests talking about your dinner party for years to come.

The trick is to choose just a few colours or patterns and stick with just those in a variety of applications. The end result will look really interesting but still uniformed thanks to the repeated colour scheme.

Mix a combo of fresh flowers and fake fabric leaves for a really pretty look.

Instructions:

Step 1
Sketch out some leaf shapes onto the back of your green fabric sticker and cut them out with scissors. For these green leaves, leave a tab shape that’s approx. 1cm at the bottom of the leaf. Repeat these steps with some extra leaves in the floral and grid pattern stickers too but just cut these with a rounded bottom. Punch a hole in the bottom of these coloured leaves.

Step 2
Use your Fabric Tape to decorate some plain linen napkins. Cut some mini triangles to decorate the bottom, and for others just apply a solid strip of tape across the bottom.
It can look really beautiful with mixed patterns in a similar colour scheme so have fun with it!

Step 3
Now it’s time to put your napkin rings together. I tried two different styles:

– Style A
Cut some fresh flowers and tie them together with your twine leaving 15cm of twine either side of the knot. Use this twine to tie your napkin in the middle.
Remove the backing area of the tab shape on your green leaves and stick these to place amongst your flowers.
Tie a piece of lace around the twine too and finish with a simple knot.

– Style B
Place your metal napkin ring onto your napkin. Cut some fresh flowers and tuck them in behind the napkin ring.
Remove the backing area of the tab shape on your green leaves and stick these to place amongst your flowers.

Step 4
Use your remaining fabric stickers to decorate some mini gift boxes and use them as a favour box / place card.
The fabric stickers come with a brown paper backing which you can actually use to create little name tags. Punch a hole in the top and thread it on some twine along with your coloured leaves and tie it around your gift box.

Step 5
Use the twine to tie a pretty bow around your cutlery too.

Project : Festive Wrap by Sam Dunne

Festive Wrap by Dunne with Style for Dailylike Australia

Christmas is my favourite time of year, the chance to gift wrap a whole lot of presents is like the icing on the cake for me.

I start by wrapping all of my presents in a neutral base paper (I have a weakness for brown paper) and then make a big pile of embellishments that way I can mix and match and try different layers and combinations. My favourite element of wrapping is texture and the mixture of paper and fabric is such a simple but effective contrast.

Here are a few tricks that I like to use to make my wrapping extra special.

Materials
Quarter Fabric Pack : Dear Linen
Fabric Sticker : Dear Linen – Grove
Cotton Ribbon : Leaf Line
Fabric Buttons : Wish Wish
Twine Bobbin : Beige

Fabric Ribbon
Festive Wrap by Dunne with Style for Dailylike AustraliaMake a small cut at the top of your fabric and then simply tear strips in a variety of widths to make your fabric ribbon.

Buttons
Festive Wrap by Dunne with Style for Dailylike AustraliaButtons are great way to add a pop of colour and some height to your wrap.

Fabric Sticker Rosette
Festive Wrap by Dunne with Style for Dailylike AustraliaCut a 1.5 inch strip lengthways from the fabric sticker sheet.
Concertina fold the strip (you can pre mark even intervals on the back if you need).
Peel back the adhesive from just the last fold and attach it to the first concertina fold to create a ring.
Press the centre to create your rosette and affix with a little glue.
Attach a button to the centre.
Use your fabric and cotton ribbon to layer up and create tails for the rosette.

Herb Wreaths

There are so many wonderful combinations that you can create with just a few items. I hope this has inspired you for your Christmas wrapping this year.

Getting ready for Christmas

Dailylike Christmas Advent Prisms

With the Christmas countdown getting closer we thought we’d share our Christmas Advent Prisms with you again as they are just so darn cute. Can you believe this was the very first DIY project we created nearly a year ago!? It has been an amazing 12 months and there is still plenty more to come! This combination uses the Celebrate Fabric Tape and the free printable template and step-by-step instructions can be found here.

Project : Scalloped Lantern by Sam Dunne

Scalloped Lantern by Sam Dunne of Dunne with Style for Dailylike Australia

These paper lanterns are a quick and simple project and are perfect for paper lovers wanting to display their favourite prints and patterns.

Materials
Dailylike Collecting Paper Set – Between Snow to Flower
Paper lantern
Double sided tape
Paper punch (I used a 2” round)
Ribbon/twine/fishing line to hang

Instructions

Step 1.
Using your paper punch, cut out circles from your paper stack.
I used 4 different patterns and punched out 2 inch circles from 2 sheets of each pattern.

Step 2.
Using your double sided tape, stick your first circle to the lantern so it slightly overhangs the bottom.

Step 3.
Continue to tape down circles in a row around the lantern overlapping each time (overlap by about 1/3 of the circle).

Step 4.
When you have completed your first row, begin a second row above, overlapping the first row of circles by about 1/3 of the circle.

Project : Buttons 3 Ways by Fiona Michelon

Buttons 3 Ways by Fiona Michelon of The Craft Hunter for Dailylike Australia

Skill Level
Easy

1. Pinwheel Gift Wrap

Buttons 3 Ways by Fiona Michelon of The Craft Hunter for Dailylike Australia

Spruce up your gift wrap with a lovely paper pinwheel with a button detail in the centre. Would also look fab taped to the front of a card!

Supplies needed:
1 pack of First Love Fabric Buttons
1 Twine Bobbin in Hot Pink
Square piece of paper for your pinwheel
Sticky tape
Ruler
Pencil
Scissors or Xacto knife

How to:

Cut out a square piece of paper and put your ruler diagonally across the corners. Draw a line around ¾ of the way in from the corner towards the centre then use scissors or an Xacto knife to cut these lines.

Buttons 3 Ways by Fiona Michelon of The Craft Hunter for Dailylike Australia

Bring one side of the corner up to the centre and fasten with sticky tape.

Now you want to do this with each corner, be sure to stick the same side of the triangle.

Buttons 3 Ways by Fiona Michelon of The Craft Hunter for Dailylike Australia

Finally, fasten your button in place with some glue or sticky tape.

Buttons 3 Ways by Fiona Michelon of The Craft Hunter for Dailylike Australia

Wrap your gift with some twine and pop your new pinwheel on top of the gift with a bit of tape and you’re done! Really cute gift wrap idea for someone special and only takes a couple of minutes. Would look great with 3 or so little pinwheels too.

Buttons 3 Ways by Fiona Michelon of The Craft Hunter for Dailylike Australia

2. Basket

Buttons 3 Ways by Fiona Michelon of The Craft Hunter for Dailylike Australia

This little basket is made from just a bit of scrap vinyl and is perfect for storing your craft goodies or jewellery. Add a personal touch with some coloured fabric tape on the inside too!

Supplies needed:
1 pack of Childhood Fabric Buttons
Stripe Beige Fabric Tape
Square piece of vinyl or leather (mine was 20x20cm)
Needle and thread (if using leather, opt for a thicker thread and needle)
Scissors or Xacto knife
Ruler
Pencil
Hole punch (if using leather)

How to:

The start of this basket is much the same as the pinwheel actually. Cut out a square piece of vinyl or leather. Mine was 20x20cm. Put your ruler diagonally across the corners and mark a 8cm line (or approx. half way to the centre from the corner) with your pencil from the corner.

Use scissors or an Xacto knife to cut the vinyl on the lines.

Buttons 3 Ways by Fiona Michelon of The Craft Hunter for Dailylike Australia

I also decided to put some stripes of fabric tape on the inside of the basket horizontally. If you do this too, pop it on before cutting the lines, or if you’re like me and decide to add it later just re-cut across your lines over the tape.

Buttons 3 Ways by Fiona Michelon of The Craft Hunter for Dailylike Australia

On one side of your square, fold 2 of the outer triangles in to meet in the middle.

Now you want to just sew it together with your needle and thread. You’ll see I chose to punch some tiny holes in the vinyl at this point to get the sewing started simply, but unless you’re using a thick leather, you could actually just go right ahead with your needle. Once you’ve secured the pieces in place you can work on adding your button with the thread.

Then repeat this with the triangles on the other side to create your basket.

Buttons 3 Ways by Fiona Michelon of The Craft Hunter for Dailylike Australia

Cut off the excess triangle pieces of fabric from inside the basket, but be careful not to cut too close to the corner or it will create a little gap. Give it 10mm or so wrap around.

3. Push Pins

Buttons 3 Ways by Fiona Michelon of The Craft Hunter for Dailylike Australia

This little project couldn’t be easier and is such a fun way to give your pin board an extra bit of character. Would also work well if you have a magnetic notice board – just glue some of your buttons to some plain magnets!

Supplies needed:
1 pack of White Night Fabric Buttons
Push pins
Hot glue gun
Pin board

Buttons 3 Ways by Fiona Michelon of The Craft Hunter for Dailylike Australia

How to:

Just heat up your hot glue gun and put a dab of glue onto a thumbtack. Quickly place your button straight onto the tack and hold in place for a minute. All done and ready to use on your favourite pin board!

Project : Organise your desk! by Kelsie White

Organise Your Desk by Kelsie White of K Gets Organised for Dailylike Australia

More often than not, we find the most inspiration and are the most productive when our workspace is clean, organised and functional.

Today we’re going to look at some of the basic components of establishing a space that works for you – use some of the tips and tricks, all of them or interpret them in your own way.

Organise Your Desk by Kelsie White of K Gets Organised for Dailylike Australia

Skill Level
Beginner to Intermediate

Materials
Paper Cups – Nature Leaf
Fabric Stickers – Frosty
Gift Bag Envelopes – Petit
Gift Boxes Small – Starry
Gift Boxes Medium – Starry
To Do List
A jar or vase of your choice
Scissors
Some pretty flowers
A notebook of your choice (maybe one that you don’t really like the cover of)
Your favourite nail polish

Some important tips and tricks before we get started:

1. Make it uniform. Try to bring a harmony into your space with some uniformity, for example using all one colour for your accessories.

2. Bring the sunshine in. Position your desk, workspace or self as close to natural light as possible to help you feel clear headed and calm.

3. Keep it clean (for your health and for your mind!). Keep your workspace clear of clutter, food scraps and stray tissues from when you have a cold.

4. Tidy a little at the end of every day. Leave your future self a little present for the next day and tidy the space – put your pens back where they need to go, finish some filing or wipe down your desk space.

5. Leave yourself a task for when you next sit down. This is a great way to ensure you get started with your most important task as soon as you get back to your desk.

Instructions

Dream Box

Organise Your Desk by Kelsie White of K Gets Organised for Dailylike Australia

1. Assemble a small gift box

2. Take some paper and write down ten to twenty big goals and dreams you have for yourself – these could be something you’d like to achieve today or in ten years time (or somewhere along the way).

3. Cut your dreams out, fold them in half and pop them into the box.

4. Select three dreams at random by drawing them out of the box. Tape those dreams to the side of the box (as shown) and use them as your guide to refer back to during each day.

5. Change your dreams as you achieve them and be sure to write even bigger ones along the way.

Nail Polish Box

Organise Your Desk by Kelsie White of K Gets Organised for Dailylike Australia

Keeping a little creative task organised on your desk such as nail polish or crochet can help you get through those creative blocks we all have.

1. This one requires you to assemble one of the small gift boxes. Fold it according to the scored lines on the box.

2. Take your favourite nail polishes and place them, plus some make up wipes and nail polish remover into the box.

Covered Notebook

Organise Your Desk by Kelsie White of K Gets Organised for Dailylike Australia

1. Take a fresh new A5 sized notebook you have that might have a rather plain cover or a cover you aren’t particularly fond of.

2. Remove the fabric stickers backing paper. Lay the notebook open over the fabric sticker. Ensure you leave a gap around the notebook so that you can fold over the fabric stick to create a ‘hem’ and a nice even edge around the book.

3. Fold in each side of fabric sticker and trim any excess. I find that cutting a diagonal line out from each corner helps the edges sit flat.

4. Open the notebook and lay down it’s spine and other cover. Repeat steps 2 and 3.

5. Voila! Now your notebook is uniform to your other desk accessories and covered in a beautiful, fabric cover ready to be used as a to do list keeper, a journal of dreams or a place to write thank you notes!

Vase

Organise Your Desk by Kelsie White of K Gets Organised for Dailylike Australia

1. Take some of the left over fabric you might have from making your notebook and grab your vase or jar for your flowers.

2. Cut the fabric into strips. If there isn’t a strip long enough to fit around your jar, try cutting shapes like triangles to decorate it with.

3. Remove the backing paper from the back of the fabric and attach it. I’ve gone with two stripes, but you could cluster the stripes or shapes according to your own taste.

4. And there we go! We have another piece that is uniform on our desk that also brings in nature and the outside to freshen up the space.

Paper Cup Storage

Organise Your Desk by Kelsie White of K Gets Organised for Dailylike Australia

Paper cups are perfect for storage, in particular they help to keep loose tools like pens and pencils in a central location. Colour coordinating or coordinating each cup with different tools can also be handy when changing your workspace from ‘creative’ to ‘work’ mode or while giving it a spring clean – simply move the cups and then pop them straight back afterwards!

To Do List

Organise Your Desk by Kelsie White of K Gets Organised for Dailylike Australia

1. Take a to do list you love (this one is from K Gets Organised) and write out your tasks for the day.

2. Complete your items as you go and attempt to keep all tasks on a single page.

3. Use the gift bag envelopes to store your completed to do lists as you finish them.

4. Open your to do list bag at the end of every month to reflect and view how much work you have completed and what your biggest achievements have been. It takes very little space but provides a very big reward over time.

Project : DIY Wall Hanging

Dailylike DIY Wall Hanging

Add a little colour to your room with this gorgeous DIY Wall Hanging made from beautiful bias tape. Using just a few basic materials, you can create this fantastic wall feature for decor around the home or as a unique party decoration suitable for any event!

Skill Level
Intermediate

Materials:
1 x Bias Tape Bobbin – Celebrate
1 x Bias Tape Bobbin – Seed
1 x Bias Tape Roll – Street Circles
Natural Twine
60cm length of Wooden Dowel – 8mm diameter
Iron
Sewing Machine
White Thread
Pins
Scissors
Ruler

Dailylike DIY Wall Hanging

Step 1:
Prepare the bias tape on bobbins by unravelling them from the bobbins and ironing flat so there are no creases from the folds. (You will not need to do this for bias tape rolls as it is already flat).

Next, fold each of the bias tapes in half lengthways so that the design is visible on both sides and iron flat.

Dailylike DIY Wall Hanging

Step 2:
Once each of the bias tapes have been ironed, you are ready to begin measuring and cutting the strips to form the shape of your garland. In this tutorial we have used two colours in the base of the design, Street Circles (pink) and Seed (green). Cut each of the bias tapes into a total of 19 measured strips as shown in the diagram below.

Dailylike DIY Wall Hanging

Step 3:
Next, cut the strips that will form the shape of the heart. Using a bias tape of a different colour, we have used Celebrate (mushroom), cut 11 strips of tape in the measurements as shown below.

Dailylike DIY Wall Hanging

Step 4:
In preparation for assembly in Steps 9 and 10, cut 18 strips of the Street Circles (pink) design and 6 of the Seed (green) design into lengths of 10cm each. These will be used to create the bows that frame the shape of the heart.

Dailylike DIY Wall Hanging

Step 5:
Layout each of the strips of bias tape in order of length to form the base design of your wall hanging. Then starting with the middle Seed (green) strip, place the 23cm strip of Celebrate (mushroom) bias tape 6cm from the bottom and hold in place with a pin.

Dailylike DIY Wall Hanging

Step 6:
Continue placing each of the strips of Celebrate bias tape over the base design, making sure that each of them start 6cm from the bottom. Hold in place with pins.

Dailylike DIY Wall Hanging

Step 7:
Next, using a sewing machine with white thread, stitch across the joins where the Celebrate (mushroom) bias tape overlaps the base colours of your hanging. This will help to secure your heart in place.

Dailylike DIY Wall Hanging

Step 8:
Measure 2cm from the top of each strip and make a fold, using pins to hold in place. Stitch across the end to create a loop that you will thread the wooden dowel through to hold your wall hanging together.

Dailylike DIY Wall Hanging

Step 9:
Using the shorter strips that were cut in Step 4, tie a simple knot where the Celebrate (mushroom) bias tape joins the other bias tapes around the edge of the heart. Make sure the knot is placed on top of the join and pull tight.

Trim the excess tape on either side of the knots to create a cute little bow. Continue to tie bows over each of the joins. There should be 24 in total.

Dailylike DIY Wall Hanging

Step 10:
Finish off the edging of the heart by tying two more bows on the 4th and 16th pieces 9cm from the bottom of each strand.

Dailylike DIY Wall Hanging

Step 11:
Thread your piece of wooden dowel through the loops of each strand, making sure that each of the strips are evenly spaced and in the correct order.

Dailylike DIY Wall Hanging

Step 12:
Cut 1 metre of natural twine and tie to each end of the wooden dowel. And you’re done! Your DIY Wall Hanging is now complete and ready to hang!

Project : Ice Cream Garland by Fiona Michelon

dailylike craft hunter diy icecream garland

Whip up a happy ice cream themed garland and matching cocktail stirrers for your next party with just a few basic supplies. I especially love the textured finish of these fabric stickers, it adds that extra special element that paper can’t give.

Cute motifs like ice creams, popsicles and sprinkles are really on trend at the moment, which is great news for us adults as it means we can now enjoy a bit of cuteness all to ourselves! Of course it’s also a perfect theme for kids parties and you could substitute the cocktail stirrers for little cupcake toppers – everyone’s a winner!

Use this as your template to trace onto the back of your fabric stickers then cut them out. (Don’t forget to trace your design in reverse so that it is the right way when you turn it around!)

The fabric stickers come with a piece of white cardboard in the packet which you can use as a backing for your garland (love that – hoorah for using leftovers!) Place your cut fabric stickers onto the cardboard and then cut around them.

I chose to just go one-sided as they’ll be hung against a wall but you could definitely do both sides if you wanted it hung across a room.

For the popsicles I used the Stripe Beige fabric tape for the little sticks.

icecream-garland-popcicle

Punch two holes in the top of each ice cream, about 1cm apart then just thread your twine through them all. Remember to leave enough twine either side for hanging! Secure on the back with a bit of the fabric tape.

icecream-garland-string

For the cocktail stirrers (or cupcake toppers if making for kiddies!), simply pop a few of the sticker dots onto some skewer sticks. Put them on either side of the stick so they form a little double-sided sticker. Use the left over dots to decorate your glasses or coasters.

Wrap your twine around something the width of your desired finished tassel length.  The more you wrap, the fuller your tassel will be.  I used the width of my 3 fingers and wrapped around 50 times.

Slide your bundle off and tie the top off with a second piece of twine.  Take another piece of twine and wrap around the bundle about ¼ inch from the top.

Cut the bottom of the loops and trim as desired.
