Fabric Flower Barrette

Spring is finally here! Woo! And you know what that means... FLOWERS! I needed inspiration for today's tutorial so I depended on the lovely flowers around me. So I scavenged out to find some flowers.

Anyway, let's get started on the tutorial. You will need:
A long rectangle piece of fabric (this varies on how big you want your fabric flower
Circular piece of felt
Barrette or hair clip

First get your fabric and tie a knot on one end. Start twisting fabric and wrap around the knot. Until you are satisfied with your flow,r glue end of fabric at back of flower. Snip to holes in felt and glue felt on flower. Insert barrette of hair clip.
 If this is to stressful to follow here is an instructional video:
So pretty to wear! Hope this has helped!

Green Tea Ice Facial

Green tea is an essential for the skin (well, for my skin). I will guarantee you that if you walk into any beauty/cosmetics store you will find something that has to do with green tea. Studies have shown that green tea could protect against cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease, and may aid in weight loss. Also, many believe that green tea in skin products can help ward of skin cancer, zap signs of aging, and rejuvenate skin cells.  Research also has shown, green tea extract is rich in antioxidants, which of course are healthy for the skin and protect the body from free radicals. So there is no doubt the green tea is good for the skin... right? Yes!

Take me for example. I bought the Tea Tree Blackhead Exfoliating Wash from the Body Shop and my nose was as smooth as can be (I would recommend the product!). So there you have the benefits of green tea.
Since green tea is brilliant for your skin I found an excellent tutorial for the Green Tea Ice Facial. Here is how I made it.
You will need:
Green Tea
Ice Tray

First grab your tea bag and put it in water. Once made, add to ice tray. After 1 hour or so, place toothpick in ice.
Note: I forgot to add toothpicks, so it doesn't look like the picture.

Leave in fridge until completely frozen take out and you have a homemade green tea ice for your facial.

Here is a good video to show you how to make it!

Suport Japan

Lately Japan has been suffering a lot. A LOT. I wanted to support Japan as much as I can. I stumbled across an article telling me about one unique way I could help Japan... make paper cranes! Of course, I didn't know how to make paper cranes so I went on youtube and found this video:

And my result was this:
Please in support of Japan, make a paper crane and post it to the Facebook Fan Page Paper Cranes for Japan.

Valentines Barrettes

This perfect idea poped into my head! Valentines hair clips! I searched and searched online and I found Purl Bee and they have a tutorial on it! Except, I did mine a little differently.
So, with Valentines just around the corner, you don't have any Valentines flair! Well, here is a Valentines Barrette  that is noticeable, but not to in-your-face. You will need:
Contrasting felt (red and pink or fuchsia and pink)
A bobby pin or barrette
Purl Bee Valentine Heart Template 

  Before we get started I'd just want to let you know that I am using red and pink felt.

  So the first thing to do is use one of your felts (I'm using red) and cut it out in the shape of the large heart on the template. You will need two of these. Afterwards, do the same with other felt (again, I'm using pink) except cut it out in the shape of the small heart and you only need one.

  With one of your large felt pieces make a slit to put in the barrette. If you are using a bobby pin like me, make one slit in the middle and then another slit far off to the other side. Sew both of the large pieces together. 

  Now take your small pink heart, place it in the middle on the side that does not have the slits in it, and sew straight down the heart. Your result should look like this:
