How to Paint a Front Door for Instant Curb Appeal!

Products for this project received from Plaid as one of their Plaid Creators. All opinions are mine.  How to Paint a Front Door for Instant Curb Appeal! So back in April, I asked some of my neighbors if I could paint their front door. I don't like babysitting kids, I'm not great at bringing meals to people...but I knew I could paint doors. This is the front door that got them all going. Over the next few months, I'll highlight some doors I painted and showcase the amazing befores and afters.

Cinch Notebooks Made with Cereal Boxes!

Cinch Notebooks Made with Cereal Boxes! I love crafts that use things that are on their way out to the recycling bin or trash...and I can upcycle them for a fun craft. Take some old cereal boxes and make the perfect notebooks using the Cinch binding tool.  These cute notebooks could be made with any cardboard box on their way to the recycling. Supplies Needed for Cereal Box Notebooks: Cinch Binding Tool (I scored on mine and found it at the thrift store for $15) Cereal Box (cut to 5X7) Paper (cut to 5X7) Cinch Binding Comb Here's a video using the Cinch machine and upcycled books: Using the Cinch is a breeze. Begin by hooking the comb on the side of the Cinch. Punch holes on the side of the paper. Use the chart guide on the Cinch to tell you which knobs to pull to punch the paper correctly. Then punch the additional holes after pulling the peg. Then hook the paper on the wire comb on the side. At the
