Re: How to Make Paperless Origami

I just love ingenious new uses for common materials. Brilliant! I'll bet you could use this in tandem with patterned cotton fabric as well to really get that "origami paper" look.

Re: How to Create a Community (a final tutorial)

I'm so sad to read about these changes, and especially sad that I won't be hearing from my favorite contributor. Any plans to start a blog of your own, perchance? I think it would be incredibly popular.

Re: How to Make a Paper Gift Box

I agree, packaging and presentation is so important! Gift giving is about the experience, and not just the thing. I love how the bottom of this box "blooms." This is not project I would make for just anyone, though, as it seems rather time intensive.

Re: Book Giveaway: Chic & Simple Sewing by Christine Haynes

This is exactly what I need to help me transition from craft sewing to making my own clothes. Awesome book!

Re: Book Giveaway: Betz White's "Sewing Green: 25 Projects Made with Repurposed & Organic Materials"

What a great book! Kudos to Ms. Betz.

Re: Book Giveaway: Jenny Ryan's Sew Darn Cute!

I love Jenny Ryan's projects. They're so clean and clever.

Re: Crafting Editorial Props: A Case Study

This article (and several of your other related articles) have seriously changed my life. Thank you so much for making me optimistic about craft again. I have shared this with every creative person I know. I would like to send you a little something in return for this incredible gift. Can I mail it to Craft Stylish or another address? Thank you.
