This subreddit is for sharing your tutorials, tips, images, and questions on all things craft related! Before posting please follow these rules:

1.) Be kind and remember the human. Comments that dismiss or insult other users or the craft they share, will be removed. Constructive criticism is greatly encouraged, but remember the constructive part. Comments on a user's appearance, especially those of a sexual nature, creepy, gross or any comments that are similar to that, will be removed and the user banned from this subreddit.

2.) Do not post shop, social media, or self-promotion info/links (i.e. etsy, social media, a shop's facebook, youtube channel, sites selling crafts, sites selling a product, or sites asking for followers/donations/votes) outside of the monthly shop thread. Not as a post, in a comment, or in the description. You will be marked as spam and possibly banned. BUT you may use the flair next to your username to advertise your shop.** This includes posts that have affiliate links to buy items. They will be removed and marked as spam. See the list below as to where you can submit those types of posts.

3.) Blog posts/articles are no longer allowed unless you are posting a free tutorial directly on your site. If you'd like to share pictures of something you've made, you must use an image hosting site (imgur, flickr, etc.), not your blog/personal site/social media etc.

4.) Please limit posting to only one post every 24 hours. Either compile an album on a picture hosting site or post subsequent pictures in the comment section. More than one post a day will be subject to removal.

5.) Video links are not allowed as their own post. Either post a picture of your finished craft and link a tutorial in the comments or post a short clip (under 60 seconds) on an image-sharing site or reddit itself. Short clips are still subject to the no self-promotion rule.

6.) Any poster that is considered "low effort" will be removed. Our subreddit is starting to crack down on low effort posts. When we say low effort, we mean users that only post their own links, only post social media video content, and/or people that do not leave comments or interact in another way with subreddits. It looks as if you post the same link 10+ times to a variety of subreddits with no other interaction. This is behavior of a spammer. If you continue to post like this, you will be banned from the subreddit.

7.) Memes, comics, and similar type of posts are only allowed on Mondays with the 'Meme Monday' tag.

8.) Keep all craft adjacent chat in the 'Craft Adjacent Chat' weekly post.

9.) Surveys are allowed in the monthly shop thread; not as a separate post.

10.) Tag your post with the appropriate flair. Due to a number of users wanting to filter out certain types of crafts, please tag your post with the appropriate flair so that posts don't receive unnecessary reports or automatic removals by AutoMod.

Tumbling marbles

Have you ever asked yourself, "Can I tumble marbles or glass in a rock tumbler?" or "Can I use sand or grit?" The answer is YES! I experimented to see which tumbling media - sand (on the left) or stage 1 60/90 grit (on the right) - makes better faux sea glass using marbles and other glass pieces. I used my rock tumbler to transform marbles into pretty frosted glass. One tumbler barrel is filled with sand and the other is filled with grit. Which do you think tumbled better sea glass with the marbles?

Happy tumbling! 😁👍🏻🪨⛏️

Will Sharpie permanently dye an iron-on patch?

I have a patch of a school mascot, but it's the wrong color. I colored it with sharpie and it's perfect. I want to put this iron-on patch on a shirt, but I'm wondering if when I wash it, will the ink color wash out? If I set it with heat, wont that help the ink stay on the patch? Anyone have any experience with this? It's going from yellow to orange, so not a big difference. Thanks to anyone who can help!

Where to find a wide shipping tube?

I am needing to make the item pictured here. It says that Michael’s should have them, but I just checked with mine and they do not. Does anyone know where else I could get this in a store? Or even something that would work similarly/able to be painted to color. Thanks!

Framing a card

I have an old birthday card I'd like to frame and in a perfect world I'd like to be able to see both the front and the inside without having to take the card out of the frame. I have no idea if this is even reasonable without taking the card apart. Any ideas or suggestions. Thanks!

I’m making an ‘open me when’ future journal for myself and I need help!

So in my head an open me when journal is something that contains letters for future me to open. It has things such as ‘open me when you fall in love’ ‘open me when you turn 18’ ‘open me when you get into college’ and so on. And I need ideas on what to add into the book. If people could give me suggestions, it would be very much appreciated :))
