Make a 4th of July Wreath #TigerStrypesBlog 19

Make a 4th of July Wreath (#TBCCrafters) We had to go away for the weekend to take our son to see his grandparents for a few weeks, so I needed something that I could make quickly.  I didn’t have any ideas of exactly what I wanted to make, but I had seen something like this on Pinterest, and figured it would be pretty easy to make and […]

Learn How To Make Paper Flowers #TigerStrypesBlog 47

Learn How To Make Paper Flowers (#TBCCrafters) I recently got a new cartridge for my Cricut that makes flowers, and thought it would be fun to try and show you how it’s done.  If you don’t have a Cricut and are good with scissors, I’m sure you could just make these that way, and they would turn out pretty close to the same.  I just […]


How To Create a Wooden Photo #TigerStrypesBlog 38

How To Create a Wooden Photo (#TBCCrafters) I love finding new ways to decorate, and especially with ideas that have  a more natural look.  I saw something like this on YouTube, and thought it would be fun to try.  I used my regular HP Printer (which is ink), and found out that it is actually better to use a laser printer for this project.  It […]

Make A Summer Decor Wreath #TigerStrypesBlog 16

How To Make A Summer Decor Wreath (#TBCCrafters) I can’t believe we’re already getting into Summer – where has the time gone?  Due to school letting out in May, the Summer season here in AZ starts a bit early.  We rarely get the hot temps like they do in the valley, so that makes the mountains the best place to spend this time of year.  The […]


Congratulate Them With A Graduation Gift Craft 26

Congratulate Them With A Graduation Gift Craft (#TBCCrafters) I can’t believe we’re already in June – where did the time go?  It’s that time of year, that most schools are planning graduations, and the kids are getting ready for summer, or life…it’s high school or college graduation.  My son is actually already done with school, and graduated from eighth grade last month.  I still cannot […]

How To Create Some Candlestick Frames #TigerStrypesBlog 16

How To Create Some Candlestick Frames (#TBCCrafters) I saw something like this online, but it was a bit different.  I figured that I would just make my own and do it even easier!!  These are great to decorate a table, or a shelf.  They would be the perfect gift for family with pictures in them.  I decided to just do a little saying in mine, […]


How To Make Artwork From A T-Shirt #TigerStrypesBlog 19

How To Make Artwork From A T-Shirt (#TBCCrafters) Who doesn’t have some T-Shirts, or other old shirts in their closet that are used, but that you really don’t want to get rid of?  My husband always cleans out his closet, when he feels he has too many, and puts some in the “yard sale” box.  There are some that I really didn’t want to get […]

Watermelon Coasters – Plastic Canvas Project #TigerStrypesBlog 23

Watermelon Coasters – Plastic Canvas Project (#TBCCrafters) I found a free plastic canvas project online for this plastic canvas watermelon coasters project, and thought it would be fun to try!  I’ve been a cross-stitcher forever, but it’s starting to be hard with my vision, and my hands.  I figured I’d try plastic canvas to see if it was any easier.  I’m not a pro at […]


Make A Thread Vase With Flowers #TigerStrypesBlog 19

Make A “Thread Vase” With Flowers (#TBCCrafters) I saw something like this on the Better Homes & Gardens website and thought it would be fun to change it up just a bit.  They had made little flowers out of hearts, but I figured having my crafty little Cricut Explore, I could “one-up” them on that, and make it even more detailed.  Since we just recently celebrated […]

Convert A Colander Into A Planter #TigerStrypesBlog 33

Convert A Colander Into A Planter (#TBCCrafters) The oaks here in the mountains still haven’t sprouted, so I’m still delaying my gardening.  Even though it’s Spring, so many times, we end up planting things and then Mother Nature says “ha/ha suckers”.  We then get a snow storm over our newly planted garden…even in the month of April.  So for that, I’ll just wait, and make […]


“Cross-Stitch Napkin Rings” #TigerStrypesBlog 4

“Cross-Stitch Napkin Rings” #TBCCrafters Hop Since we are getting into Springtime and starting to plan on having friends over for dinner parties, and things like that, I figured having some special things for the table would be fun. I’ve been cross-stitching since I was about 8, so these were pretty easy for me.  My Aunt taught me years ago how to do this and it’s […]

Make Your Own Business Card Holder #TigerStrypesBlog 9

Make Your Own “Business Card Holder”(#TBCCrafters) I’ve been really trying to think about what to create for this weeks #TBCCrafters post, but figured we’re about halfway between Easter and Mother’s Day and there’s really nothing much happening right now.  I thought I would keep it simple and make something up that could be used to help organize your desk or counter at work. This was pretty […]


Make Your Own Tablet Holder #TigerStrypesBlog 17

Make Your Own “Cutting Board” Tablet Holder(#TBCCrafters) I pray that you had a blessed Easter, or Resurrection Celebration, last week.  Our family celebrated with our church at their service…wonderful music, amazing teaching, a blessing for sure.  We then went out to lunch and enjoyed some time as a family.  Living in a place where there is none of our family close, I don’t really have […]

“Tie-Dye” Your Easter Eggs #TigerStrypesBlog 12

“Tie-Dye” Your Easter Eggs Craft(#TBCCrafters) Easter, or Resurrection Celebration, is just a few days away.  If you’re like many families, you’re getting ready to color some eggs to celebrate.  I know that there are some who don’t like this form of “tradition”, since they feel that it takes away from the true meaning of what they day is about, but if you dig around for […]


Plastic Canvas “Munching Bunnies” Craft #TigerStrypesBlog 17

Plastic Canvas “Munching Bunnies” Craft(#TBCCrafters) I figure with Easter, or Resurrection Celebration, just around the corner, that I would make some fun things for around the home or giving as gifts.  Even though the “bunnies” and “eggs” have nothing to do with what the day is truly about,  they are something that still happen in almost every city to celebrate this day. There are stories of […]

Make Some “Baby Chicks” For Spring #TigerStrypesBlog 9

Make Some “Baby Chicks” for Spring Well, since good old Winter has decided to not show his presence in our area this year, I figured it was best to just go on to Spring!  We only had about 3 days of snow this whole season, all of which melted in no time.  I keep seeing the stories on the news of the East Coast and want […]


Decorate With A St. Patrick’s Day Blessing #TigerStrypesBlog 9

St. Patrick’s Day Blessing I haven’t had a lot of time for crafting this past week, but found this cute little “Duck” brand frame at Michael’s when we were traveling.  I know it was meant to be decorated with duct tape, like most of the youth are doing today, but I figured it would be fun to make something out of it and just keep it […]

A Sweet Gift of St. Patrick’s Pot of Gold #TigerStrypesBlog 18

St. Patrick’s “Pot of Gold” With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I wanted to make a craft that could also be used as a gift!  You see so many different pot of gold things, I just wanted to twist it up a little.  This one was really easy to make and I think the hardest part was finding the “Gold”…finally found it at Walgreens after […]


How to Make a “Wine Cork Hotpad” #TigerStrypesBlog

 “Wine Cork Hotpad” #TBCCrafters Hop Since we all recently celebrated Valentine’s Day, I’m sure that there are some of you with leftover wine corks, or even some from the apple cider bottles.  I always look for corks at yard sales and was blessed to get a package from my Mom from a local restaurant in her area up in the Rogue River area of Oregon.

Make Indoor S’Mores with a “CounterTop Campfire” 20

“CounterTop Campfire” I saw these cute little things over at The Budget Savvy Bride‘s website.  She was making them for the tables at a wedding and I thought, “Well, I’m not getting married, but it’s cold out!”  I figured that they would be perfect to use inside for marshmallows, when it’s just too cold outdoors to do it.  They were very easy to make and I […]
