In the video below, she teaches us how to make a magical little bag out of just two circles of fabric and some ribbon.

I think I’m going to go make one now.

The Potato Tarot

I just LOVE this idea – the Potato Tarot!!!

It’s not a Tarot about potatoes, though I might like that as well, but rather a Tarot deck made with potatoes … and old cardboard boxes, paint, and the arts & crafts knowhow of Mike Parkes.

Watch Parkes in his tutorial below, demonstrating how to make your very own Potato Tarot. He’s pretty funny.

And for further details on how to make the deck, and a box to carry it in, check out Parkes’ Potato Tarot blog.

This is one crafty guy. I like his style.

April's Army Tarot Project

July 12th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Here’s another Tarot Kickstarter project that looks interesting…

It’s April’s Army Tarot Project and features 25 artists from across the world coming together to create 78 original cards.

All participants are fans of the website, who’s catchphrase is, ‘Where DIY Meets WTF’. And they’ve invoked that spirit in the creation of their deck.

They’re working in a wide variety of mediums – paint, pencils, pixels, fabric and clay. And you might say they’ve taken liberties with the traditional Tarot suits.

Instead of the familiar Swords, Cups, Wands and Pentacles, they’ve opted for Tools, Genitalia, WTF, and Whimsicles (F*ckery). And yes, that’s how they spell Whimsicles.

The adult nature of this deck might not be for everyone, but it looks really fun to me. You can see some of the cards and artist discussions at their collaboration space. And watch the video below to meet some of the people involved.

April’s Army is trying to raise money for production costs and they’re accepting pledges until August 4. For as little as $20 you can help get the deck finished and get your own copy as soon as it’s back from the printer in November.

Visit their Kickstarter page to read more about the deck. And consider supporting it. When regretable crafting meets Tarot, it’s something to celebrate.
