In celebration of all things crafty, we thought we'd share the work of the extraordinary author/craftswoman Alison Caporimo, who'll be hosting a workshop table at the Sunday, May 4th BUST Craftacular: PRIMPED. This easy DIY stationary appears in Alison's book, InstaCraft: Fun and Simple Projects for Adorable Gifts, Decor, and More, published by Ulysses Press. This gorgeous stationery is stained by actual blueberries-- YUM! And here's how you do it:

Materials:

3 cups water

1 cup blueberries

Stockpot

Card stock

 

Directions:

  1. Pour water into a pot and heat over a high flame until boiling.
  2. Stir in blueberries and smash with a spoon or potato masher. Mix well and allow to cool slightly until lukewarm.
  3. Dip card stock into dyed water and allow to dry completely before using. (Experiment with dipping times and angles.)

And don't forget to stop by Primped on Sunday, and say hi to Alison in person this weekend! Here's all the details:

 

Primped begins at 11AM, goes until 6pm and will be held in the Brooklyn Bazaar space, at 165 Banker Street, Brooklyn. There’s a ton to do, including hair chalking, crafty shopping, nail art, and braid styling/bang trimming at the Fringe Salon Braid N’ Bang Bar! Do NOT miss it.
