Giveaway: Thursdays DIY Hairclip and Tote Bag



**Giveaway Closed: 12/8/11*

Today’s giveaway comes from fellow food bloggers Colleen and Stephania, who co-founded Thursday Night Dinner, a site dedicated to getting together with your friends, cooking, crafting, and having fun. All things we believe in here at SKC!

Since we fancy ourselves apt DIY-ers, especially where dining hall cuisine is concerned, the crafting element of the Thursdays mission, in addition to the good food and friends, is something we really get behind. Thursdays recently added a shop full of ready-made crafting kits that you can order and assemble with your friends–the perfect procrastination activity before finals hit!

We’re giving away one of our favorite Thursday crafts today: an awesome DIY hairclip. Check out the finished product and basic instructions here. But that’s not all. Once you get to be an expert DIY-er, you’re going to need a bright, fabulous tote bag to carry around all your finished crafts. In addition to the DIY hairclip, the winner of the Thursdays giveaway will also receive a lime green tote bag.

To enter the Thursdays DIY giveaway, you must:

  • Leave a comment below and tell us about an awesome craft or DIY trick.

    I made the floating flower vase from Cupcakes & Cashmere to protect my fresh flowers from my naughty flower-eating kittens. It was so simple! I drilled 4 holes in a board, used picture-hanging wire to wrap and wire a mason jar to the board, and made a loop through two holes at the top of the board to hang it from a nail. It’s awesome and looks great and lets me finally have fresh flowers in my place!

    I love DIY Popup Christmas cards! I usually just google that and find videos and tutorials on how to make them. I think sending someone handmade popup cards are a lot more fun than store-bought cards.

    I do not have a Facebook…I know what you’re thinking..and no, I do not live under a rock.

    One of the easiest and super cute things to do is to take an old shirt/pair of jeans etc. and make a tote bag :) Orrr, you can take a number of old college shirts and make a memorabilia quilt :)

    I repinned a really neat DIY/organization tip the other day. Buy clear plastic cups (the shorter, wider ones), glue to a sheet of cardboard, and organize your ornaments in them! Way better than my current “wrap in a piece of tissue or napkin and toss in box” method.

    Here it is! http://pinterest.com/pin/253749760224275964/

    If you need a decorative box and you have an old shoe box and some magazines laying around, make a collage box! I took my dads gardening magazines and cut out pictures of flowers in different shapes and sizes. Dilute either elmers glue or craft glue with water until it is thin. Using a paint brush, brush on the glue to the box then put the magazine cut outs on in what ever manner you like. I painted more glue over the pictures to make sure they stuck well to the box. let it dry and tadah! I stapled a piece of hemp to the undersides of the cover then tied a bow on top for decoration.
