Since a few weeks Sofia and Mila are writing letters to their grandparents, they don't live far away and we see them almost every week but I thought it was a good way for the girls to practice their writing skills & spelling and it would also be a fun thing to do. Last week Mila and I spend some time making enveloppes of pretty paper from our favourite magazine Flow, I made a little animation with a small tutorial on how to make these cute enveloppes with some magazine pages and Japanese tape...enjoy!!

Fabric banner tutorial
I love fabric banners, there are a lot of different ways to make one, I've made a few different ones and I think this is the best way to make one. This is the first tutorial I ever did, so if there are any questions, yes please!!
Step 1.collect a few different cute fabrics, I prefer a combination of plain cotton and cute printed cotton.
Step 2. draw on a piece of paper a triangle of your chosen size, here I made a small one.
Step 3. Use the paper triangle to cut your fabric. The amount of triangles depends on the length that your banner is going to be, you have to do a little math to find this out.
Step4. I like to have the same amount of plain ones as the pattern textile, this way it's easier to make a nice combination.
Step 5. After cutting the fabric place the triangles with the patterned (wrong) sides together and sew them together.
Step 6. Turn the triangles inside out and iron them.
