Craft Roundup: 'Make It' Your Own Projects

From a duct tape bag to washi tape flowers, kids put their personalized spin on any of these cool DIY tutorials – or try all four on for size!

Craft Roundup: 'Make It' Your Own Projects

I love reading craft blogs while on the hunt for great tutorials, product reviews and new projects. What I love even more than that is finding a how-to and personalizing it for my family's needs. This week's Make It roundup includes some fun, practical ideas that you can tailor to your child's (or your own!) favorite things. From adding secret snacks to jazzing up a duct tape bag with cool colors, how will you personalize your next craft project?

 

Duct Tape Bag Tutorial

We're a big fan of duct tape crafts at Make It. Check out this "duck" duct tape bag tutorial from Little Birdie Secrets for a different approach to making a fun on-the-go duct tape bag.

 

Retro Oven Cupcake Box

I love this idea from Amy Powers. Pick up this adorable printable from Etsy.com and then personalize it however you like. Perhaps with a favorite cupcake or snack inside?

 

Recycled Cardboard and Washi Tape Flowers

I love these simple, easy-to-make flowers showcased on Dollar Store Crafts. But they don't have to be flowers. If you've got a comic fanatic, make some comic book thought bubbles!

 

Quick Scrapbooking

Don't brush off scrapbooking thinking there's not enough time to create fun pages. Check out this roundup of tips from Inner Child Giving to help you create unique pages in just minutes.
