Ok The tips I want to share today are tips on how I am creavtive. Well how I am most the time.
Tip 1: Sometimes it takes alot of failed projects to find the perfect project. Play around with materials, use materials you would not normally use. You don’t have to get crazy. Start out with using t-shirt fabric, felt, or maybe even yarn to make something. If you make something that just not right try a different step or add another material into play.
Tip 2: Use your scraps. Take out that ribbon that there is just a bit left. You could make a bow, a braclet, or a necklace with that. How about a headband? Don’t just throw them scraps in a bag and look at them latter. Take a look now!
Tip 3: Don’t follow directions!! If you find a project you like try to make it your self first with out following the steps. Add in your own steps. If there is a bow add a flower or button instead. If the directions call for using ribbon, try using lace or yarn instead. Crafts is like cooking subsitute things in for something eles.
Tip 4: Have fun and tell yourself what your doing is the right way. If you feel like your doing something wrong, your going to mess up and hate what you make. Have fun and let your thought process go wild.
