I love that you all went crazy over last year’s DIY wooden polaroid gift set, but there was just one little thing missing for them: a stand.  We solved that problem by making these DIY wooden polaroid displays that make for the perfect desk additions or home decor trinkets. Even better, you can make the displays in almost no time flat and DIY along to our second ever video tutorial for them too!

The polaroid portion is the same easy steps as last year, which you can find right here. Once you have your wooden frames ready to go, you’re all set for making the displays…

DIY Lip Patterned Gift Wrap

Nothing says I love you more than lots and lots and lots of kisses, but nothing says germs and smeared lipstick that won’t ever dry on real paper more than a gift covered in real lipstick kisses. Lucky for you, they have these things called stamps that make all of those problems go away, and it makes this DIY lip patterned gift wrap twice as appealing.

I should also mention that this might not be the best idea to make for your boyfriend for Valentine’s day. Not because it’s not super cute enough, but because anyone who won’t take the time to Instagram it first won’t appreciate the abnormal amount of time it will take you to create this pattern on any gift bigger than 5×5 inches in size. But hey, if you are dating that kind of guy, congratulations and be sure to have him tag #mysugarandcloth so we can all see it! (#shamelessplug)…

You guys, we have been DIY’ing like mad people over here lately, and there’s still plenty more to come. To spread the love, I’m helping welcome Chelsea’s newest addition to the club by sharing this DIY XOXO throw blanket over on her blog while she’s spending a little extra time bonding with Mr. Henry, so be sure to check it out!

And don’t forget to enter to win my bike! Because first comes love, then picnic bicycle dates, and then little Henry’s. Don’t worry, I’m still in the bicycle phase for now.

DIY Conversation Heart Macarons (and video tutorial!)

Well, my friends, today is a big day. Not just because gigantic DIY conversation hearts are now a thing, but also because I’m officially a YouTuber. Would’ve never seen that day coming three years ago, but alas, I’m now among the masses. Funny thing is I now have a new appreciation for the 12 year old superstar YouTubers that can actually work those video settings like a pro. I, on the other hand, had to watch a video on how to edit all of the random video codes so take it easy on me since I’m a beginner.

Now back to cookies! Since conversation hearts are kind of like the candy corn of Valentine’s Day (a staple that’s pretty to look at, but not so popular to eat), I decided to revolutionize them for the masses with giant, cookie versions. I mean, can that even go wrong?! It also helps that our studio is above a bakery that’s willing to make giant heart macarons for you on the fly (thanks Tout Suite!). You can click through to see the full tutorial AND video for these guys, right here…
