Get organized, add a glow to your party, and turn tissue paper into faux pressed flowers!

Are you ready to get crafty this week? We have 3 fun projects you need to make!

If you are getting married or planning a party, these illuminated gift bag lanterns are for you! With a quick cut, fold, and punch, you can create your lanterns in minutes. After you make your lanterns, just add battery operated candles (I bought mine from the Dollar Store!). I think these would look awesome strung from tree branch to tree branch for an outdoor wedding. No fire or electricity required! Check out the below video to see how you can make your own gift bag lanterns.

Who said organizing has to be boring? Get organized in the most adorable way possible with these fabric embroidery hoop pockets!

No joke, this fabric pocket organizer will get your crafting supplies off of your crafting table and up on the wall in minutes! You can totally customize your pocket organizer with paint and fabric to perfectly match your crafting space. These fabric pocket organizers would also be a nice addition to a nursery for a touch of added cuteness! You can see the quick video tutorial below.

WARNING: these are so easy to make you won't be able to stop! :)

What do you get when you pair an old glass jar and tissue paper? A faux pressed flower vase!

It is always hard for me to toss out items I think could be repurposed. My old pesto jar did not make it into the trash since I loved the shape of the small jar. I knew I wanted to decorate the outside, which is when the idea of adding faux pressed flowers came in. I cut out different colors of tissue paper to create my flowers and used Mod Podge to adhere them to the outside of my jar. If you don't want to add faux pressed flowers to an old jar, you could use them to decorate the outside of a giftbox or even add them to a greeting card! See the full tutorial here!
