This week’s Every Day DIY was inspired by the massive piles of paper that are currently smothering my laptop. It wasn’t until I had to clear off my section of our communal desk for a special afternoon tea ceremony treat that I realized how much trouble I was in. Under piles of bills (whoops) were magazines and postcards that needed to be read and filed away, not to mention a few dozen receipts that I’m pretty sure our bookkeeper would like to process. So I decided to come up with a quick-and-easy DIY that would inspire me to keep my various piles in order: mini resin paperweights! The nice thing about this project is that it takes literally 15 minutes to make (5 minutes to prep and mix, 10 minutes to set) and you can place just about anything inside. I chose to make mine sparkly and colorful in honor of this month’s theme, but you could easily place objects inside that are special to you. If you’ve got time for a little crafting break at home this week, I hope you’ll give this one a shot. Have fun! xo, grace
The full how-to is after the jump…

1. Mix the resin according to the directions on your box.
2. Slowly pour the resin into the silicone molds, adding glitter as you go along.
3. When the mold is full, let it sit for 10 minutes and then peel it out! Voila- mini paperweights!
