Random touches of personalization throughout a home are the things that make it comfortable, unique, and appealing. Couponcravings.com featured an interesting craft this past week that showed what a few materials and some elbow grease can give you. By using some recycled shutters, a poster size picture, glue, some spray paint and a handy Swingline® ClassicCut® Lite Guillotine Trimmer a truly special piece of art was created, adding to the home the perfect amount of personalization!
Our trimmers make it easy to create piece after piece, always giving you a perfect and clean cut. Below are a number of other crafts our assortment of trimmers can assist you in:
- DIY Notebook: Whether young or old, notebooks are a common and necessary tool in our day to day life. Make yours reflect who you are by trimming down magazine clippings or pictures and creating your very own stylish cover!
- Mixed Paper Journal: Pulling out an old photo book is always a good way to relive some of your greatest experiences and memories! Push your creativity to its limits and use everything from ticket stubs to personal pictures to document these fun times.
- Homemade Stickers: By using your own images, printing some offline, or taking magazine clippings, you can create stickers of any shape and size by simply cutting to your liking! Fun and easy; it doesn’t get much better than that.
- Custom Coasters: While ‘maps’ are the design of choice in this post, don’t feel limited by that! You can cut anything and modpodge them to tiles just like these!
- Wall Picture Collage: Select any pictures and as many pictures as you see fit and cut them down to size. At this point, all you have to do is glue them down and you have a beautiful collage to display.
Not only does crafting help you to feel proud of the many projects scattered throughout your home, but it serves also as a way to tap into your creativity and bond with family or friends as you make the crafts together.
The sky is the limit when it comes to this! How far will your creativity take you?
