Clever Upcycling Ideas with Graphic 45 DIY Craft Rolls!

Ladies Diary DCE upcycled hand fan by Aneta Matuszewska, photo 2 

We love when our Design Team takes old items and make them new again. This month we challenged them to do so with our DIY Craft Rolls and whatever collections they'd like. The results have been stunning so far! So much inspiration from the team. Today, Aneta Matuszewska and Lena Astafeva have brilliant ideas for us! We are in love!

First Aneta creates a stunning fan with our A Ladies' Diary. So gorgeous! You'll love her video tutorial below! This would be a great project to also use our DIY Craft Rolls for the background fan. Amazing!

"When I went searching for a old and amazing stuff to upcycle I saw this beautiful, vintage hand fan. I knew right away that it will be perfect for a shabby, altered fan every lady will love to own.

Tip 1: USE HOT GLUE TO OPEN AND GLUE YOUR FAN. THAT WILL GIVE YOU A PERFECT OUTCOME.

Tip 2: USE A LOT OF LACE OR FLUFFY RIBBON TO COVER  ALL IMPERFECTIONS." ~Aneta

Now, Lena shows how to make an old box new again with DIY Craft Rolls and Artisan Style!

"I take an old parcel   and DIY Craft paper .  Because the DIY craft paper is thinner than the design paper, the process of sticking  will be easy and quick. Out of the old thing we have a nice box for the present now.  Everyone will be happy to get a present in such beautiful box. And the main thing is to make it yourself quickly and simply. " ~Lena

I'll never toss a shipping box again after viewing Lena's idea of wrapping them with G45 craft roll papers. Great idea:)

I re-purposed some google packing similarly to make a gaming box. I've got my dice packed, a couple of miniatures and space for my character sheets.

Love the up cycled box!!!!!

Very nice! Love this big paper!

I Love All Things Graphic 45!!!

Mon Amour is such a beautiful combination of colors. Love creating with this romantic collection! Enjoyed seeing the fan project. Pretty!

Up your led box is great. Love all your products!

These are just beautiful! Thanks for the inspiration!

These rolls of paper are such a great idea. The upcycling is such a great way to go. Love the ideas and the projects shared.
.......Just seen the sneak peaks - Christmas paper looks so yummy and I am so glad that secret Garden is back as a Special Edition ... I missed out previously ... my bad!

Beautiful projects today! Thank you for sharing them.

Love the fan!

Lovely gift box! Receiving a present in this box would be like getting a present in a present.

Aneta's fan done with "A Ladies' Diary" is just lovely!! And the box recovered with your GR craft roll paper is so ingenious, I think I'll have to try one!! MON AMOUR is tres chic, and just for me!! I need more!!

Just beautiful such amazing inspiration for upcycling !!

Absolutely gorgeous. Don’t ask me to pick a favorite because I can’t!

Such a beautiful, altered fan by Aneta! Love the nostalgia flair that Mon Amour has, and would love to create with all those generous giveaways.
