Valentine’s Day Crafts in 4 steps or Less

first_img You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here  Love is officially in the air. Why not celebrate the season with a few easy, inexpensive crafts that the whole family will enjoy. These crafts are all upcycled from old moving boxes, meaning all you really need is craft paper, glue, and stickers, and you’re ready to go. Below are four easy, do-it-yourself Valentine’s Day craft tutorials!Kid’s Valentine’s Day card boxPersonalize your child’s Valentine’s Day card box for their school party by using one of our Truckie’s Treasure Chest boxes. These boxes are simple to assemble and have handles to make for easy transportation to and from school.Supplies:1 Truckie’s Treasure Chest boxCraft paperStickersHot glue gunBox cutterScissorsStep 1: Assemble your box and place the handles into the open spaces on the side. Next, use a box cutter to make a slot on the top for Valentines to be dropped in.Step 2: Have your child cover the box in craft paper of their choice. Use a hot glue gun or tape to secure the paper to the box.Step 3: It’s time to personalize! Let your child personalize their card box with stickers, paper hearts, ribbon, and anything else they wish.Sweetheart garlandSpruce up your home by creating a classic conversation heart garland to hang in your home. I’m in love with how this turned out!Supplies:1 small boxAcrylic craft paintSponge paint brushesRed stickers or a red markerRibbonBox cutterHole punchHeart stencilsPencilStep 1: To make this simple, we decided to do a quick online search and print heart stencils. Trace as many hearts as you’d like to have on your garland and use your box cutter to carefully cut them out.Step 2: Now that your cardboard hearts are cut out, it’s time to paint. We stuck to the classic candy heart colors but your options are endless! Also, I would recommend doing two coats of paint for the best results.Step 3: After the paint is fully dry, use your hole punch on each side of the heart. String your ribbon through the holes and behind each heart to put your garland together. At the back of the first and last heart, tie a knot in the ribbon to keep them from slipping off.Step 4: Use your creativity and think of fun sayings to put on each heart! We used red stickers for accuracy and to save time but a red permanent market can work just as well.Valentine’s Day door wreathGreet your guests with love by creating a paper heart door wreath!Supplies:1 small boxCraft paperSticker lettersRibbonHot glue gunPencilScissorsBox cutterStep 1: Trace a large circle onto your box with a second circle inside it. Use your box cutter to cut out the inside circle as well as the large circle, leaving you with a base for your wreath. Keep in mind this does not have to be perfectly shaped and it is okay to have jagged edges as you will be covering it up.Step 2: Cut out various sized hearts from your craft paper and begin gluing them down to your cut out circle. Continue doing this until you are satisfied with your wreath.Step 3: We added a “LOVE” banner to the top to make it extra festive. After you are happy with the look of your wreath, use your hot glue gun to secure ribbon to the back of your wreath.Valentine’s Day dessert toppersDress up dessert by creating heart shaped toppers. We chose to go with cupcakes, but they’ll work great with almost any treat!Supplies:CardboardCraft paperToothpicks or small dowel rodHot glue gunScissorsStep 1: Cut out cardboard hearts. Tip: If you have a heart-shaped cookie cutter, use it as a stencil for perfect heart shapes.Step 2: Cover the cardboard with craft paper. We selected a variety of designs to make our cupcakes more playful.Step 3: Push your toothpick into the bottom of the cardboard heart. You may need a small amount of hot glue to secure it in place.Step 4: Pop them into the tops of your dessert and enjoy!Haven’t had enough DIY-ing yet?

It was important the social areas to be of a large size, and the master bedroom could function as a sector of great independence and be equipped as not to depend of the rest of the house.

This decision allowed us to reduce the circulation areas to a minimum and go accommodating the various uses, following the natural slope of the lot and even burying part of them, reducing in this way, part of the built. The ladder of course becomes the organizer, not only functional but spatial, as a nexus between spaces that need to be integrated. With this volumetric arrangement and taking care to maintain as much vegetation, we were able to provide the house of the variety and flexibility of required spaces, without losing their independent use between them and proposing to them all, a clear integration with the landscape through openings that frame it.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessProspective Photo Essay: Kimbell Art Museum & Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth / Amit…ArticlesZaha Hadid Seeing Double in ChinaArticles Share “COPY” Area:  187 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeBAK arquitectosOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMar AzulWoodHousesArgentinaPublished on January 02, 2013Cite: “Levels House / BAK Architects” 02 Jan 2013.

The PANO Penthouse is at the 53th – 55th floor of a high-end residential tower in Bangkok which is the fourth highest apartment in Thailand. AAd (Ayutt and Associates design) designed this penthouse under the concept of “living between the city and the nature” offers a modern lifestyle with luxury and relaxation with panoramic views towards the historic Chao Phraya River. The Penthouse was specially developed for a single family in need of a place to combine privacy with socializing living space.Save this picture!© Piyawut SrisakulThe PANO has been designed as unique private house in the skyscraper. It provides private outdoor spaces which similarly perform as urban houses on-ground, including terrace, garden and even swimming pool. In the case of this triplex interior design, most public facilities are located at the main 1st level and top level, while private functions, such as main bedroom, guest room, kid room, working space and bathrooms, are situated on the 2nd floor. Save this picture!© Piyawut SrisakulThe concept of fluid and dynamic spaces are the mainstream of the entire project and has been applied for all levels and space, such as in main living space, master bedroom, working room and outdoor space allowing continues journey between the spaces. The hall and the main living space are the first threshold from communal area to the private domain. In contrast with other domestic interior designs, the main living space was designed to be the focal room of the house where the client, which is an art collector, displays their art pieces.Save this picture!© Piyawut SrisakulThe elegant and exceptional terrace, punctuated by a tree incredibly planted at the 53th floor of a residential tower, allows a nature and panorama view that enhances the relationship between the interior and exterior, and provides an opportunity to bring in a large quantity of daylight indoor. It is the result of a large-scale of architectural modification applied to the original layout of this penthouse.Save this picture!DiagramThe main staircase leads to the roof top and sky garden becomes the focal point of the living area, while creating a calm atmosphere of Zen garden. Master bathroom is designed with the natural concept by growing vertical plants which create comfortable and calming atmosphere to this small room. The space can flow directly between master bedroom, bathroom and dressing room.Save this picture!© Piyawut SrisakulOn the top level, the owner can step out onto the terrace which provides an open outdoor space, thus allowing family and friends to enjoy sun and fresh air. The swimming pool and garden provide the ideal image of a single-family house in Bangkok. This new main outdoor space, with walls removed from original layout, increasing the BBQ kitchen, sunbath deck and dining area conceived as dynamic spaces surrounded by the amazing outdoor swimming pool. The entertainment room, terrace and pool can be a recreational space for both kid and adults allowing enthusiasm, excess and freedom for kid while adults can enjoy the relaxation of a range of activities.Save this picture!© Piyawut SrisakulIt is clear that the gardens around the private space are not only aimed at enhancing visual quality, but also at encouraging family and friend to move around and generate social activities between them. The aesthetic of this space is a place of dream accompanied by a sense of nostalgia. In terms of occasional domestic lifestyle in Thailand, the apartment generates the recreational area for family as does the luxurious houses, and includes the benefits of the view of Bangkok skyline, and represent a quiet place away from the stresses and complexity of the city.Save this picture!© Piyawut SrisakulProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Steven Holl and the Architectural ExperienceArchitecture NewsTower 41 / Taller de Arquitectura X / Alberto KalachSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Bangkok, ThailandLocation to be used only as a reference.

When watching the spring bubbling up and running into the Itaipava site, we had the idea of damming it and creating a natural pool with running water, but with a cement bottom, good for swimming. When built, it resembled a lake. Above it, there is a glass annex where you can enjoy the landscape. With chilling lounge, steam room, gym, bike repair room and a jacuzzi.

Spanish photographer released on same day he was kidnapped

first_img PalestineMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders said it was extremely worried by the kidnapping of Emilio Morenatti, a Spanish photographer with the US news agency Associated Press, in the Gaza Strip this morning.“We firmly condemn Morenatti’s abduction and we call on the Palestinian authorities to do everything possible to get him released quickly,” the press freedom organisation said. “He is the eighth journalist to be kidnapped in the Gaza Strip since the start of the year. All were freed safe and sound but no investigation has ever been concluded and none of the kidnappers has been punished.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Journalists have become a favourite target of the armed groups that operate in Gaza with a disturbing degree of impunity.” The organisation wrote to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in August voicing alarm about the climate of violence for journalists in Gaza and demanding effective measures to ensure their safety.Morenatti, 37, was kidnapped by four masked gunmen as he left his home in Arrimal, in the western part of Gaza City. His assistant, Majid Hamdan, said they stuck a gun to his head as he waited for Morenatti in an Associated Press car outside, taking his keys and mobile phone. Then they drove off with Morenatti in a white car. No group has so far claimed the kidnapping. Help by sharing this information News News June 3, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders voiced relief today after learning that Spanish photographer Emilio Morenatti was freed yesterday evening, after being held for less than a day by the gunmen who kidnapped him outside his Gaza City home yesterday morning. The authorities have not revealed the identity of his kidnappers. The press freedom organisations called for a transparent investigation.“Journalists are not bargaining chips for use in settling scores,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Eight journalists have been kidnapped in the Gaza Strip since the start of the year, so it is vital that the authorities send a clear message by arresting Morenatti’s abductors.”Morenatti, who works for the US news agency Associated Press, was taken to a small room and held there for four hours by his kidnappers, who never removed their masks. He was then transferred to another location, dressed as a woman in a long veil. The Palestinian security services meanwhile contacted his kidnappers and got them to release him shortly before midnight. ————————————————————— 24.10.2006 Spanish photographer kidnapped by gunmen in Gaza WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Spanish photographer Emilio Morenatti was freed late last night in Gaza.

Focus on Lough Derg in major tourism plan

first_imgEmail A MAJOR four-year plan outlining the future economic development and marketing of the Lough Derg area as a tourism destination has been launched by Minister Alan Kelly, Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Fáilte Ireland’s Plan for Lough Derg, entitled ‘A Roadmap for Experience Development and Destination Marketing 2014-2017’, includes the provision of marina and tourism related developments along the shoreline of Lough Derg as well as the appointment for the first time of a designated Tourism Co-ordinator for Lough Derg.Minister of State Alan Kelly said the primary purpose of the plan is to maintain and improve tourism visitor services, recreational facilities and environmental amenities around the lake and River Shannon with a view to creating a ‘Lough Derg’ experience.He continued: “We simply have to unlock Ireland’s hidden secret, which is Lough Derg. Doing this requires a vision that all parties can buy into as well as a will to get things done and this approach is the way forward.This comprehensive strategy will develop Lough Derg as a key destination for superb water based activities combined with a range of very high quality walking, cycling, heritage, culture and food experiences that will entice the domestic and international visitors to stay longer. This will be achieved through joint co-operation of all tourism stakeholders in the development and marketing of their area under the Lakelands – Lough Derg identity.”“Lough Derg is one of Ireland’s most valued tourism assets but it is also a vulnerable landscape, which is why it is imperative that it is the subject of an extensive development strategy. Fáilte Ireland and the Lough Derg Marketing Strategy Group (LDMSG), in conjunction with the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport and the local community, have delivered a strategy that will ensure that an appropriate balance is established, with development in the most appropriate locations and the protection of vulnerable areas,” added Minister of State Kelly.The key tourism attractions being targeted in the new blueprint include the development of a waterpark at the University of Limerick Activities Centre (Clare), Lough Derg Canoe/Kayak trail, a masterplan for an eco-park in Portumna (Galway) and a Discovery Point and Trailhead at the Portroe lookout (Tipperary). Meanwhile, a designated Tourism Co-ordinator for Lough Derg is expected to be appointed during the coming week. The position will be co funded by the TRAP INTERREG IVC European Union project and the Lough Derg Marketing Strategy Group (LDMSG). A key element of this position will be to engage with and support the existing tourism trade and businesses surrounding Lough Derg and ensure the effective implementation of the Plan.According to Paul Keeley of Fáilte Ireland: “The collaborative approach adopted in the development and planned roll-out of this Plan will be key to its success. Previous experience from other parts of Ireland show that such an approach does deliver results and Fáilte Ireland looks forward to working with members of the LDMSG and the Tourism Coordinator to improve existing facilities and amenities and provide additional new facilities. Furthermore, Fáilte Ireland will play a central role in the development of a unique and marketable Lough Derg brand that will ultimately lead to an increase in visitors to the region.”Mr. Joe MacGrath, LDMSG Chairperson, noted that work undertaken by the group in recent years to expand the tourism offering in Lough Derg will assist the delivery of the new plan.He explained: “The Group has for a number of years delivered its own Action Plan to develop Lough Derg as a key destination for superb water-based activities combined with a range of very high quality walking, cycling, heritage and culture and food experiences aimed at enticing the domestic and international visitor to stay longer. This objective is further strengthened through the launch of this new Plan which ensures the joint co-operation of all tourism stakeholders in the development and marketing of their area under the Lakelands – Destination Lough Derg identity.”For more on the Fáilte Ireland’s Plan for Lough Derg visit www.failteireland.ie.

Big battle of the little robot-builders

first_imgWhatsApp Pictured at the Primary School Robotics Competition is Evan Meehan, Gaelscoil O Doghair, Castletoy Limerick.IT WAS the battle of the giants, waged by little people. More than 100 primary school students went head to head and big body to big body with their self- designed sumo wrestling robots at the fourth annual Analog Devices Primary School Robotics Competition.And last stranding in the Sumo ring were students from Killoughteen N.S. who were crowned the 2018 Analog Devices Primary School Robotics Champions at the challenge which took place in Limerick this weekend.Supported by ON Semiconductor, the competition saw teams of 10 to 12 year olds from 30 schools across Limerick city and county pit their rival robots against each other.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Parents, family and friends were all in attendance to support the children during the highly competitive finale which saw the teams attempting to force each other’s robots out of a circular ring.Pictured at the Primary School Robotics Competition is Rachael Irwin, Christ the Saviour National School, Cloontemple, Ballingarry, Co. Limerick.William Ahern, Evan Broderick and Jack Kelly from Killoughteen National School won the overall competition and Noah Connell, Anna Gleeson and Nikolay Stioakine from Monaleen National School were runners up.The day-long competition started with an Advanced Robotics Workshop where teams of three or 4 students designed and built their own innovative robots for a sumo wrestling style competition.The theme and game objective was only announced during the workshop allowing for the teams to be scored for their teamwork, design and innovation. In the afternoon, each team played 4 matches with the top 16 teams going forward to tense and exciting knock-out rounds where the final points were allocated.The aim of the hugely popular competition is to promote STEM amongst primary schools students by giving them the opportunity to design, build and program their own robots. It encourages team work, creativity and facilitates learning STEM principles in a fun environment. Year-on-year Analog Devices has expanded the competition to cater for the demand from schools wishing to participate.More local news here.
