If you know it wouldn’t have come as a surprise to you that I collaborated with Fran of Fall for DIY to contribute a DIY tutorial at We Make Collective and I couldn’t be happier to work with my favorite DIY blogger. In fact, I have been hinting at it for a while at my Instagram ( follow me there to not miss on any important news ). A little introduction here, We make Collective is a subscription-based service, where you are sent a kit filled with the very latest DIY and craft materials every two months. And they have further instructions and tutorials provided to guide you on how one could make use of their kit. Here,comes me I have a tutorial up in their site. WOHOO!
I got the lino block printing kit and I couldn’t get any more excited as it was exactly what I needed at that time. I had been thinking of potato stamping but luckily I didn’t have to carve a potato and a cut finger, eek. I used their foam board to cut out some triangles and a circle, I was looking for a geometric pattern with cool pastel and bright spring /summer colors in mind.
Result this awesome storage box that I get to show off at my shelf and hide away the not-so-beautiful things away. After giving stamping a try, I can’t stop thinking about what else I could possibly stamp. If you have subscribed for the lino & block printing kit then you can access my tutorial for transforming your cardboard boxes into these cool modern storage boxes at the members area. If you just got to know about them, I would say hurry up and grab their next kit i.e the polymer clay kit before they are sold out again the second time, yup they are that awesome.
